Greetings Cards

I’ve been enjoying this weeks card making before the last Fakenham Makers Market before the summer break. All made with original art, as you know, I do like hands on messy stuff!Β

Decorating my Studio

I decided as the weather is changing and it’s soon going to be cold that I would brighten my studio up so that it is more inviting during the bad weather. I haven’t really thought about it until now and I want to cheer it up.

I sealed up where the windows were leaking last winter and now, as you can see they need a coat of paint.decorating-studio-1decorating-studio-2 Looking better already.decorating-studio-3Now they need a nice top coat so I’m off to choose a colour! πŸ™‚

Card Stands in the Making

I started a new project recently as I’ve been having a constant battle in how to display some of my work at my makers markets. I have been making stands and generally trying to improve the presentation of my stall. Ultimately to try and improve sales!

I’ve had someΒ apple trays for a while, knowing they would come in useful sometime and now they have! I saw something when I was out the other day and just motivated me to see what I could do.

I estimated what other bits of wood I might need which only cost about Β£10 and I got on with it.display-1 Measuring, sawing and painting:-)display-2 display-3Yes I’m impressed too!display-4I’ll take a photo of my stall on Saturday to show the stands all finished πŸ™‚
