Last weekend was Crafty Fox Weekend in London! It was my first time trading at an arts & crafts market and I LOVED every second of it.
Here are a couple of pictures of my work on display:
Crafty Fox is a fantastic market. The quality of the work you see there is good and the variety of styles is very carefully picked and put together. You can tell by looking at what’s on display, that the organizers and curators are very specific, know what they are looking for and have incredibly high standards.
I was honoured to be selected to take part in their Uncovered Scheme for artists who are new to market trading. I had a mentor (the amazing Rod, from Rodology) who helped answer all my question and gave me several valuable tips, from the best way to display my products to the amount of change I should have on the day, etc. He was great. Thanks, Rod! :0)
I also got to meet talented artists and people who like me, were new to trading as well. Oh, and most importantly: I talked to lots and lots of lovely customers! People were very interested in my work and asked me lots of questions, which was wonderful and flattering! A few of my friends and family also dropped by, which was extra sweet.
Overall, a very successful day! Time just flew by. Thank you, Crafty Fox, for such a wonderful weekend.
Lots of love,
This time next week I will be in London getting ready for my very first Crafty Fox Market!
If you live in the UK and have a passion for all things handmade, you will have heard of Crafty Fox. It is one of the best Arts & Crafts fairs in the country. I have been a fan for ages and now for the first time, I will be there as a trader. I’m so excited, I can’t wait!
I have been putting lots of illustration goodies together for the market: greeting cards, postcards, Art Prints of various sizes, etc. I will also have a couple of framed originals, which I think is always a good idea.
A little sneak peek of one of my postcards. They are available in my Etsy shop too, if you can’t make it to the fair.
You can see the full trader listing here. There are lots of cool stuff and very talented people. If you’re around on Sunday 5th October, come and say hi! I will be on the second floor, so come and find me. :0)
See you there!
January has brought me three VERY good news: not one, not two, but THREE of my favorite friends in the world are expecting babies! I am so happy, I could burst!
Two of them are over in Brazil so unfortunately, I am too far away and can’t hug them in person. The other one is here in Lisbon and so I made this little illustration and framed it for her.
It was a sweet little gift and she really loved it, which made me very happy. I guess it’s always lovely and thoughtful to give something handmade, even better if you created it yourself.
As for the other two, I’ll have to wait a little while longer until I can see them, but I’ll start scribbling away anyway. :)
Congratulations ladies! Love you tons!
