Well the kids are back to School after the Summer Holidays and Autumn is creeping upon us, the garden looks windswept with the recent weather, but extremely pretty as the Autumnal colours arrive and the air is awash with Autumn scents, woodsmoke being a favourite of mine. Over the past couple of weeks my focus has turned to Christmas!!! Yes I know.. it's way too early, but for us Artists and Crafters the Christmas period is a busy one and needs lots of preparation. This year my biggest Fair is once again the Wealden Mid Winter Fair, being held at the beautiful Bedgebury Pinetum in Kent on 24th, 25th & 26th November. I have already begun creating my Christmas Cards and Tags and am now focusing on Christmas Garlands and Wreaths made from fabric and bay leaves with a few rusty bells thrown in for good measure!
The Mid Winter Fair is a wonderful festive event to really kick start your Christmas Shopping Period, with a huge array of beautiful stalls from gifts, to clothes and furniture, there is something for everyone and if you are a fan of vintage there are some fantastic finds to be made here. Carol Singers add to the festive spirit as well as some scrumptious food and drink halls. For more information check out the Wealden Times Events Section and here you can also pre-order your tickets to avoid queuing on the day. I will be posting little updates as we get closer to the event with sneak peeks of items I have made for the Fair, but in the meantime hop on over to the Wealden Site for a full list of other stall holders and their wares.
