CHRISTMAS CRAFT FAIR (#2)

The Christmas Fair @ Davigdor Infant School went well. I thought it would be a lot quieter because of the horrid weather but i ended up almost reaching the same takings as BHHS.
I had made 7 more foxes over the week and i'm very glad i did beacuse i sold 5!!! They definitely attracted most of the attention. I had lots of nice comments and people asking if my stuff was available to buy online - I really need to sort out a website next year!
Ry helped me set up again but i was on my todd for the rest of the day. It makes me laugh when i leave Ry looking after the stall - he looks so uncomfortable. It also makes me smile to think that people may be wondering if he makes all the little things :) Tehe.

Tipsy Christmas Fox! *hic*

This is a rosy cheeked tipsy fox (*hic*)made especially for my Mum. I'm sending it to my Grannie today as she is flying over Dubai on Sunday to escape the cold. Jealous! I hope he will enjoy himself over there with the Ashworth crew - crimble in the sun!

CHRISTMAS CRAFT FAIR (#2)

Christmas Craft Fair @ Davigdor Infant School, Somerhill Road, Hove (nr. St Ann's Well Park).
This Saturday 4th November, 12pm-3pm. Come along!!! Get your mits on some hand crafted goodies for Crimble!! :)
P.s. I didn't design this flyer...

CHRISTMAS CRAFT FAIR (#1)


I had such a wonderful morning at BHHS on Saturday!! I was really nervous at the beginning as i wasn't sure how it was going to go. My initial worry was just about breaking even but i was pleasantly surprised how well i did over the 2 1/2 hours.
Everyone seemed to love my Snazzy Foxes but the big sellers were the Small Bears (£5) and the Bear Keyrings(£2.50). There was a group of girls that seemed to keep bringing their friends back to buy things. It was a lovely feeling!
I had lots of fun & THANKU to all the people who came to see me and the little things i make!!!!!!
I am going to be doing another Christmas Craft Fair this Saturday (more details to follow). I'm going to go and start sewing furiously to replenish my stock for the weekend.
P.S. Is it too early to put the crimble decs up???

Bunny!!!

This is a bunny i made yestertday. It took me AGES! to make the spectacles...not sure i'd make them like that again. I do like the bunny though - i'm really trying to stick to my original illustrations so i can retain the constant link between doodles & 3D in the Little Things i Make.
Wolves, Ferrets, Badgers, Sausage Dogs & Fennec's to come....Any more suggestions??

I Love Foxes!

My first EVER fox!!! I've been wanting to make a fox for a while now. So i made one for my friend Joel's birthday. I tried to keep it very close to my foxy illustrations - I'm really pleased with him :)
More foxes to come!!! Watch out x

Sewing to Selling!!!

I've been a busy bee this month making lots of my little things !!! I was asked to sell some of my work at the Macmillan Charity Tea Afternoon http://www.macmillan.org.uk/Home.aspx on Sunday which was lovely (despite the horrid weather). It was a great afternoon & it was splendid to see that people really liked my crazy little critters.
I have been asked to go back before Christmas to do another stall which means i can start making crimble decs!!! My favourite :) I'm also in the process of designing some greeting cards which i hope to get into shops in time for Christmas.
I also hope to be doing the Brighton Handmade Christmas Fair on the 12th of December http://handmadebrighton.wordpress.com/ (I will post more details as soon as i hear more)
