What happened to May? I swear it didn't even happen, for me it was a blur of sewing up cat butts and glueing pom poms on bears. It was all worth it though in preparation for my first ever BUST Craftacular at York Hall in Bethnal Green! I had such great time meeting other crafty folk and new customers, it was a fun and safe bubble that cushioned us from from the awful events that happened in London the previous night. Even the stamps on the door meant that everyone who came into the hall was branded with the word 'Love', it really did feel like all who went and took part really meant that.
I had a lot of new products which I was excited to share with everyone including a new range of pom pom cards made for Pearl and Black, decorative cat cushions and pencil cases. There was a hugely positive response for my new (and old) additions and lots of love for my stall display. Designing my stall is one of my favourite aspects of taking part in craft fairs, I think it's really important to create an engaging space that reflects the fun in my products. On a low budget you really have to get creative with mount board, old wine crates and sharpies!
Once I get some nice photos of all the new things I'll put them up on my etsy shop.

Next up is another fair I haven't done before which is SoLo Craft fair in Balham Bowls club that means this week I have to stock up on my business cards and make some more of my popular grumpy cat pins.
Hopefully see you there!
