Christmas Is Coming!

During December I have been keeping myself busy by working on the 2014 Advent Challenge organised by the fab Faye Brown.

I have been determined to complete all 25 and thought I would share some of my favourites here. Together I think they make a really strong story.

I have also set up a Pinterest board to showcase work by other designers taking part. There are some amazing designs to see. So get in the festive mood and have a browse!

Christmas Maker's Market.

It's that time of year again when us Artists and Craftspeople go all out to sell our wares and promote a "handmade" Christmas. For a number of reasons I have only signed up to do one fair, a Maker's Market at The Minories in Colchester. I sell my work in the gallery shop and it has a lovely, contemporary vibe to it. Here are some photos of my stall complete with new units to sell from!

I spent a long time creating some new pieces to sell, both my original illustrated jewellery and some needle felted wares, and I was so pleased with how the market went. It was spread over two days and I made lots of lovely sales. Many people may get a SlumberMonkey original on the big day!
