Ta-da…these are now available to buy in the Welsh Rare-bits Co. Shop. Click on the screen cap above to go to the shop.

My next project involves a badger skull that my sister brought up from the woods. I thought she was bringing me something nice, she walked in carrying a Marks&Spencers bag so obviously I thought it was food. You can imagine my suprese!!

My ‘All The Things I don’t Own’ piece is now available in my store. This is a delicate piece so I’m thinking of only doing about five, including this one. I shall also be adding my kitchen utensils piece to the shop this week. As I have already mentioned, this is an extremely delicate piece so the only way really of displaying it was in a box frame. There is a lot of box frame art to be had right now, some of which is mass produced with laser cutting machines. My work is not done like this, it is all hand cut with a scalpel and there is much though and feeling which goes into the work. So please bear that in mind. If you click on the screenshot that should take you to my store, if that doesn’t work click here.

“The path of my life is strewn with cowpats from the Devil’s own satanic HERD.” Blackadder II

Well…where to begin really. First craft fair and it was a total disaster!

One word…W.I

Before I delve into my rant about yesterday, I would just like to really thank everyone who commented on this blog and who has shared their advice with me. It wasn’t half arsed comments either, it was genuinely thoughtful advice which I took on board. It meant a lot to have that so I thank you lots and lots! Also, the unsuccessful nature of yesterday had nothing to do with any advice that I was given as I have already stated, everyones comments and opinions were brilliant and very relevant.

In all honesty, I don’t know what we could have done differently yesterday. Got there on time, did a beautiful display of the work, I thought the products we had were excellent but is that just me? You do wonder about these things, whether you are totally blind to the quality of your work. But that’s another thing, so many people came over to our stall and commented on how wonderful everything looked. I thought this would be the right time to bring out the christmas stock and to appeal to those who were doing their christmas shopping, but then there were some customers who were all “oooooh, if only it were a bit closer to christmas, I’d buy this.” so obviously I had the wrong idea!

The nice thing about yesterday was that it was a beautiful location (If you’re ever in Wales, Narberth is a beautiful place to go) and the people who were on the stalls with us were lovely.

If I could just take a minute to be slip into “Bitch mode” this craft fair is not the same as the ones you get in the cities. There’s a lot of…pastel coloured knitted baby clothes. The jewellery is beads that have been ‘bought in’ and that have been threaded onto a piece of string, am I painting you a good picture here? Please bear in mind that this is just my opinion. But that also seems to be what people would like to spend their money on. We chose to go to Narberth as Pembrokeshire is very well knows for being an extremely arty part of Wales.

I think maybe I’m a bit of a snob about arts and crafts sometimes, perhaps thats Karma for me. But i’m just going to say it…there was a hell of a lot of crap there and Im shocked that people bought it. So there, na na nana na! 😛

Anyway, it just means I have to get myself together and its on to the next one!

Take care,

Advice Needed

Alright folks, I was wondering if you would be a darling and help me out with a bit of advice please? Next weekend I will be doing my first ever craft stall. Im nervous about this. What if nothing sells and it all goes to pot! We’re going to do a trial run of our stall layout this weekend but I was hoping for a bit of advice from those of you who have done something similar before and also from those who haven’t, what is it you look for when you go to these things? absolutely any advice is appreciated so of you could please spare the time I would be really grateful. Thanks ever so much.
