Saturday was the day for Christmas shopping and I went to get myself some fine treasures. Bust was splendid as usual, beautiful ceramics by Louise Graham, Glazed and Confused, and Me me me, and general lovely things by Jessie Chorley, Jill and Custom Made and the most beautiful but slightly disturbing taxidermy by Jazmine Miles-Long. And of course my favourite handmade cosmetics by Andrea Garland.

The Mangle Xmas Fair was a pleasant surprise too, I purchased an A1 newsprint screenprint from Rob Ryan for £5 and he signed it for me. JOY! I totally abandoned buying anything for anyone else and bought myself a tote bag with one of my favourite prints by James Brown of General Pattern.

Now for my favourite festive part... wrapping!

Letters for the Regal Writer.

Finally some of my new writing paper is available from my shop. It is all screen printed by me, in hope that you will all write more letters. Hooray for letters.

Available here.

My First Ever Craft Fair.

On Sunday it was the Christmas Craft Guerrilla Fair at the lovely William Morris Gallery. I was a little nervous as it was my first fair but it was a very good day, with the help of my assistant Mared Edwards who also makes lovely things.
There was a cheery, festive atmosphere, surrounded by the beautiful architecture itself, and a choir even came to sing to us.
A very good day indeed.

Bust Craftacular!

Cripes! Only a few days until my favourite event maybe ever (apart from my annual camping trip). Yes, Bust Craftacular has returned once again in Bethnal Green. Possibly the finest selection of crafty designs one could hope to lay one's eyes on.
There'll be D.I.Y lessons, a Pop Up Tea Shop from Lady Luck, and some excellent records being played all day, and over 60 designers.
What more could you possibly want?

Also on the same day is an excellent Vintage Fair which looks well worth a visit.....
