I've been reliving my youth & making salt dough decorations. Mine were a little more safe than Rob's, I used some little pastry cutters.

The recipe I used was:
  • 2 cups of plain flour
  • 1 cup of table salt
  • 1 cup of water
Which was enough to make, well, a lot!
Try it yourself, it's super fun. (but don't be tempted to eat it, it tastes... salty).

More, More, More...

Tuesday, 13 December 2011, fabric, screen prints, & orders!

Last Sunday I did Totnes Art & Craft Fair, it was a horribly wet & windy day. Which meant in turn most people were at home snuggled in front of the fire & telly, where we wanted to be. After a very slow morning we packed up early, Rob did sell a painting however, HURRAH! Totally unexpected, making it all worth while.

My day was also brightened by my very first Esty sale, & all the way from Australia. I can't wait to get cracking on making it, a sign of what is to come I hope. I also have an order from a friend & Exeter market on Saturday to be getting ready for this week.

Today my new order of Monaluna fabrics have arrived, they are even more beautiful than I'd imagined. Cannot wait to start creating with them.

In other news, new screen print! Our first using 2 screens for a double colour effect. I love it.

Last weekend I did my first fair, it was a bit of a muddle but it was only in my village so quite a good practice run. I was displaying my dresses but ended up selling mainly these little vintage tea-cup candles "tea lights" that I had made up that day with a bunch of my granddads old crockery & some beeswax I'd ordered online.

This Sunday I will be at the Totnes Christmas Art and Craft Fair, having a stall with Helen Melland & Rob Mason. The week after I'll be in Exeter, busy busy, I hope to sell a little more but would be happy for people to take my card & have a think about organic clothing would be nice.

Final Winter Photos

Friday, 2 December 2011

These are a few of my favorites from my photo shoot on Wednesday with Beci. She has edited them perfectly as I wanted them to look retro to match the style & shapes of my dress.
Soon I will do a proper website. & also I am going to order new fabrics from Monaluna which I am very excited about.
This weekend I am doing a small market in my village to promote my dresses & sell some Christmassy bits & bobs. I have a lot to do...
