Craft 2.0 - What a day!

Craft 2.0 and the Wellington Road Trip were fantastic.

I met so many lovely people - stallholders and customers. Put faces to names, and caught up with some lovely crafty peeps I had met before.

The New Dowse is a lovely gallery and provides a great space for a fair. There were points of interest for everyone.

I had my lovely mother to help for the day and thank goodness as it was busy from the moment it opened to the minute it closed.

Songbird had a really successful day and it was a great kick-off to the Christmas season.

I was really tired when I got home but it was all worth it.

Sue and her team of organisers do a fantastic job at getting the fair going and getting the punters there. A big thanks to everyone involved.

As usual my camera action is nothing to write home about but I do at least have some photos - which is an achievement in itself.

Cupcakes from Cupcake Sweeties.. YUM

Cat Taylor's Stand - it was very empty by the end of the day!

The lovely Rose and Emma - CHC Peeps

Some beautiful ceramic christmas decorations - I can't find this ladies card so it you know who it is - let me know and I will update this post.

Wellington Road Trip!

Songbird is heading out on a road trip first thing in the morning.

Cat Taylor and I are boarding a plane (early) and heading to our nation's capital for Craft 2.0.

I can't wait - this trip follows our first road trip to Christchurch earlier in the year for A Craft Affair. This time we are (sensibly) not trying to do it all in one day.

My lovely mother is coming to help so we can get a look around and take a toilet break!

I have the camera packed and will take as many photos as I can and post here on Monday.

And another while.....

No excuses for blog neglect other than VERY busy with life and Christmas Market preparation.

I have also had some large retail orders which has kept me busy. Feltaid also still continues - the store will be open till 31st October so lets get it as empty as we can.

This weekend marks the start of the Christmas Market schedule. I have listed (am listing on the right hand side of the blog) all of the markets I am going to over the next two months. I am a couple short on last years schedule so if you know of any that would be good for me, comment below or flick me an email!

This weekend is the last Crafternoon Tea. It is also Crafternoon Tea's first birthday! This market has been good to Songbird and I am sorry to see it go. All the best Luisa and thanks for all of your hard work and efforts on our behalf. Hope we can give you a good send off and birthday celebration this Saturday.

I have loads of new necklaces both Scrabble Tile and framed pendants, heaps of new earrings and clips plus Christmas Cards and Tags all available between now and Christmas. Make sure if you want to get some pieces for Christmas Presents, that you join my mailing list as I will be having list only specials offered to only mailing list members in the lead up to Christmas.

Hope you are all well out there.
