On Sunday we held our fifth market as I Make Fun Stuff and it was out third street market held on St Peter's Street in Ipswich. It was a perfect day for it, the sun was out and warm and crowds flocked to The Saints to buy handmade goods from talented local sellers.
It was a fantastic success and we can't thank our stallholders, customers, visitors, friends and supporters enough. Every one of you made it the fabulous day that it was, we love doing this and want to continue to promote, improve, develop and make our town a better place to live.
Here are some photos of the day and the stalls, more will shortly be up on our flickr page.

Now that pictures seem to be working in my posts again I can finally show you a couple of goodies I got recently, I say recently, not all that recently but blogger has been working against me!
So I did a great swap with the fabulous Nikki McWilliams. I bought her Wooden Custard Cream Brooch a few months ago and I really love it so when she suggested swapping one of my Crystal Form Totes for something from her shop it just HAD to be the Digestive Biscuit Brooch.
The other beautiful thing there in that picture is my brooch from No Milk Today. This is really up my geometric street right now! These shapes are top of my love list. You can find my jewellery from Eva in her etsy shop, I will definitely be going back for more!

This weekend I will be selling my wares at the fabulous Clutter City Summer Fete. I've never had a stall at Clutter City but I have visited and bought goodies before so i'm very excited, I know how good it is!
Running your own markets is fabulous and all but going to visit other's in different towns is so exciting because you meet new people and see new things you want to buy! That's not to say I don't buy stacks of things at our I Make Fun Stuff markets, more on that soon!
Come down and have a lovely hot dog and buy some stuff and make some new friends

Louise of the lovely blog Wallpaper Rose asked me if I would donate something to her First Birthday Giveaway which you can enter via her blog.
She asked for one of my Wooden Wool Badges so off it went to be added to the massive pile of fantastic goodies you could win just by popping over there and following the instructions. Here are a few of the lovely goodies...
So off you pop!
p.s. apologies for no photos, blogger won't upload them for some reason so I will add some when it plays ball.
p.p.s YAY! Photos are back!

New in the shops this week are these typewriter totes. I currently have them listed in purple and green but I can print them in any colour imaginable so if you would like one in a custom colour just drop me a line.
Fully heat fixed these bag have long handles so perfect to sling over your shoulder and keep your shopping, books, lunch, paperwork in.
