Arnold Carnival with Sunshine!!


Had a great weekend at Arnold Carnival, a little cold on the Saturday, but having remembered to pack socks and a coat on Sunday it was glorious! Arnold Carnival is a great family day out and a 'fun' if busy event to do. There was plenty of entertainment, the stilt walker was fantastic. From a 'bug' point of view it was great, though I was on my own on Sunday, the busiest of the days. It was great to see customers that bought things last year returning and it's great to receive orders for Christmas gifts early (though a little unnerving as I can't help thinking I should be starting too). I also met up with someone I haven't seen since school (too many years ago to admit), someone I used to go to work with and a friend who we probably saw more of when he lived in Singapore than now when he lives in Arnold (that's what having kids with social lives does for you!).

Now I have to focus on getting ready for the the school fayres before a breather in August just before the start of the Christmas season.....

Sunshine, Rain & the Start of Summer

Are we in Summer? I have done several events since my last blog. Southwell Minister was great, such a beautiful back drop, I have never set my stall out on a grave before! A very enjoyable event with some very talented people, the Minster insists on everyone handcrafting their wares which results in a truly wonderful variety of unique products. If I am invited for their Christmas event I can imagine it would be magical with the Minster decorated for the fesitve season - fingers crossed as it is a most popular venue.

White Post Farm was less eventful, not quite what I thought it would be and a little disappointing, again great people though.

Getting ready now for Arnold Carnival and then I have seem to have a lot of School Summer Fayres. The new gardening sets continue to be popular despite the weather! The hooded baby blankets are now on the website, each is personalised with either a duck or butterly design, and soon to be added is a moon and stars design.

I have various new prodcuts in the pipeline and I am already beginning to think about the Christmas launch!

So keep and eye on the website as hopefully new items will be appearing soon!
