CraftFEST 9th - 16th June - The largest worldwide Online Craft Fair

Good morning all, It's gloriously sunny up here in the North East this morning and I can't wait to get out in to the garden again...but first I just have to tell you all about CraftFest!

CraftFEST is the largest online craft fair you could imagine, crafters from all around the world join forces to network and sell their beautiful handmade items for a whole week 24hrs a day, for 7 days between 9th and the 16th June.

We are delighted to be participating this year for the first time and are hoping for lots of  'Creative Connections' with fellow crafters and hopfully new customers too.

With 100's of crafters already setting up their stalls in preparation it should be a fantastic event with a real community feel and some amazing items for need to even go anywhere, you can view and buy all from the comfort of your favourite chair.

We're gearing up ready for the launch and hope to have a wonderfull week connecting with new and lovely people, hopefully even making some are some wonderful items we've found so far...

Copper Wrapped Amonite Pendant - Spiral Fountain Jewellery

RoseBud Tote bag - Personal Space Interiors

Child's Pinny's - The Old Button

Pocket Notebook - Handmade in Keswick

For loads more beautiful handmade goodies, make sure you drop in to CraftFEST between 9th - 16th June and pick up something beautifully handmade direct from the crafter.

Well here in blighty it's a bank holiday...but no rest for the wicked...I have 3 batches of ingredients ready and cooling for today's soaping adventures.

Wylam Beer soap with Patchouli
On the cards for today...Wylam Beer (in preparation for a Village fairs next month),
Turkish Rose Madder soap with Oat potein
 Turkish Rose Madder ( a hot favourite in the last few weeks)

SOS Facial Cleansing Bar with bentonite, charcoal and Essential oils
 and SOS facial cleansing bar with tea tree and lemon.

While the lye water, beer infusions and madder root are all doing their thing and becoming lovely and ready to soap with, I though I'd do a spot of 'research' on facebook, you know keeping the profile up and checking the latest news.

Anyhoo while I was there, I discovered to my delight that my Beddy Byes Bath Milk has been chosen for the UK Handmade's Summer Showcase. so I HAD to tell you about it ;)

Please do pop over for a browse, ther are some beautful UK handmade crafts and gifts chosen, I'm so proud to be one of their selection.

Right back to making and wrapping...lots to do to keep me out of mischief today...Happy May Bank Holiday everyone!!
