Happy Birthday To Me!
The day before the Saints Festive Street Fair was my birthday. That sounds like pretty bad organising but my birthday isn't usually much of a big deal, sadly, the weather is always rubbish so we can't really go anywhere so it's usually a rather small affair. What's worse is I had a bad cold and felt rubbish all day along with doing last minute jobs ready for the market.
The best part of my day was 7:00am when I woke up, got lots of loving rubs from Milly and cuddles from Chris and a fantastic array of presents!
Above is some pictures of a few of my goodies. The pea pod necklace (by Eclectic Eccentricity) was from Chris' brother and sister in law, the lion and raindrop badges (by Debbie Greenaway) were from Chris and the Vixen necklace (by Joanna Rutter) was from my Mum and Dad.
I was also lucky enough to get a huge stack of books, always a very gratefully received present! I got the V&A Fifties pattern book, Handmade Graphics, V&A Horrockses Fashions exhibition catalogue, The Ultimate Guide to Running Your Own Freelance Business, How to Sell Your Crafts, Locally, Globally and Online and the Illustration Contemporary Sourcebook. I've been so busy i've only managed to look at one properly but I will be making stacks of time this week as there is no more market organising to do!
