Where have I been (Take 2)…

Just been browsing my poor neglected blog and stumbled across this little ‘Where Have I Been…’ post. Not that I’m under the illusion that people all over the land are busting to know, but making these montage-y collages some how gives some order to my scatty brain life so I shall do another one in the hope that I will proceed to pick up my blogging habit again in earnest now the update has been brought up-to-date as it were!

a little run down of the past year…

Crafty Prawn @ Little Seeds…October 2014

141012_Little Seeds Fair (1)_sml…a quick post about a little baby + kids fair The Crafty Prawn rocked up at – my 1st one in fact – back in October. Now a bit settled in my new home of Bristol, I thought I should start as I mean to go on, so took the leap to venture out of my online etsy land and into the big wide world of fairs. Baby, kids and their parentals came in their hoards to the Little Seeds Fair in Southville, Bristol and it ’twas a great trial run for BIGGER + BETTER fairs and markets in the future…
