Misi Stash Swop

You all might remember me mentioning that I had got involved with the MISI Stash Swop at the beginning of the month. My swapper was with Magic Making Hands. I had to send off bits and pieces of my stash to her, while Kelso Creations was mooching about her stash looking for items to send to me!
If you don't remember, read here!

Well, today I had finally finished my creations.

Now, I must point out, I'm not at all creative with paper and glue, so this was indeed a challenge! Give me beads any day!! But it really was a great insight into another craft.

Can't wait for the next swap to happen!
Thank you snowflake.unique for organising it.

The weekend round up!

So, the weekend came, and now has gone, so it must be time for another update! Well, it's more of a rant really!

Well, as you are all aware I had my first outdoor craft fair. I'm pretty used to doing craft fairs indoors now, so it wasn't too fazed at setting up outside....

it all went slightly 'whopsie'!

We arrived on Saturday morning at the event to set up, just before 8am. The man showed us where our allocated space was, by spraying the grass in yellow paint! We had a lovely deep area of 30ft, and 9 ft frontage.

We unloaded the car, and started constructing the gazebo. It all went quite smoothly considering we were in quite a rush. We had 1 hour to get it all set up for opening time at 9am.

Up went the gazebo, the tables, all the jewellery on one table, and accessories on the other.

Well, the morning went on, and I nipped to the loo.... I came back... and noticed one of my packets of cord fluttering along the grass.

I picked it up and carried on walking along the grass to my stall, only to see my Mum, Dad, and my dads friend picking up the entire of the accessories table contents off from the grass! (table on the right with the purple covering), along with the stand at the back, and all of its contents sprawled everywhere!!

The wind, which had started picking up, had caught the gazebo panels and hit it all on the floor. I was pretty upset, but carried on picking up everything.
We decided to move the table to the back of the tent, and move the stand in front of the jewellery stall.

The day went on, things were flying off the tables all day! By the end of the day I had given up and secretly didn't want to go back again on Sunday.

Apart from the Saturday wind, the day really was okay. Not as busy as hoped, but Saturdays are usually slow at Rallys.

Sunday arrived. I was very sceptical. It was pretty windy at 8am, but we got the gazebo up, again, the tables and all the jewellery.

We arranged the tent slightly differently, and secured it as much as we could we cable ties, and camping chairs pinned into the ground and tied to the bottom of the gazebo panels.

Sunday was a lot better. Lots more customers, more sun, although the wind was still playing up, majority of the tent stayed still..... until the evening when we dismantled the gazebo. The top blew off. The front end went up in the air, while still being connected the other... came back down, and ripped two of the plastic components. Grrrr.

I've one more outside fair to do in September. I'm pretty worried about it now, but I think that will be the last one I do. I'll stick with inside doo's next time!!

Hope everyone else had a good weekend!

The MISI Stash Swop!

This afternoon I received my MISI Stash Swop!
It's from Kelly from Kelso Kreations! ( I hope!)
Please say if I have it wrong *embarrassed face!*

The idea came from snowflake.unique. We had to scramble through our crafting bits and bobs and send our raw materials to our given swappers to a vaule of £5.00.

Using all the items that have arrived, we are to create a masterpiece! Then take piccies of our finished item(s) and post them on the MISI forum, and blog here about them.

We have until the beginning of August to make our items. I'm really excited!
So here is my bundle!
