Shugborough Hall Christmas Fair

It's been a long time since I last had the chance to update my blog, we have been so busy. I've had to take a few weeks off after surgery on my knee, but I'm starting to get back into things now, and did my first fair for a while last weekend.

It was our first real Christmas fair this year, and so there has been a lot of planning and new festive products to make and design. The old favourites are back such as the tree decorations and the Christmas cards, but this year we are really going to town with the Christmas wreaths and garlands....although the garlands are still being designed!!!

A new product for this year are the beautiful Christmas pot pourri cones, all made by my Mom. They flew off the stall over the weekend, and rightly so, they are absolutely gorgeous and smell divine!!!!

I thought a picture of my Mom was about due as I'm always writing about her antics. This was taken this weekend , but I'll leave it to you to decide which one is her!!!!

We have next weekend off as it is Chris' 30th Birthday. No craft fairs, but mountains of making to be done as the following weekend we are split between Southwell Minster Chrismas Fair, and Rufford Country Park Christmas Market. Details of both can be found on our website so if you are anywhere close and fancy a real festive excursion, we would love to see you!

Speak to you all soon
