Summer Street Fair

Yesterday was my 2nd craft fair, held as part of the Ipswich Art festival. Was a mixed bag really, with it being one of the hottest days of the year, and one of the biggest football games of the year, the turn out wasn't as good as it probably should have been.

However I sold many goodies and met some great people, as well as getting some very much appreciated support from my friends and family!! Thank you all who popped by, hope you enjoyed it x

PixiBones Dinner Party

This Sunday is the next I Make Fun Stuff craft fair on St Peters Street. The Summer Street Fair is part of Ip-Art, the annual Ipswich Art Festival. Loads of exciting stalls will be there as well as the super talented Mister Millerchip doing some live drawing. So if you want to avoid the footy, or have a pre footy shopping warm up, pop down to see our delights.
Amongst my pet flea plushies, illustrated cards and silver lined cloud cushions, I will be selling two of my hand painted dinner sets for those scrummy summer dinner parties. These sets are suitable for four including dinner plates, bowls, side plates and cups & saucers....

Pet Flea Plushies

Since getting two little kittens recently, one being white, I have managed to find a couple of fleas...even though she has been treated!! This got me thinking for what I could make, with the next craft fair quickly approaching. PET FLEEEEEAS!!! Here there are, the first of my flea circus: Fleabee, Fleainn, Fleaix and Fleaiona.....

Festival Critters

Recently I have been busy preparing for and carrying out workshop at the Isle of Wight Festival. I was volunteering for Vinspired, a charity that opens up exciting volunteering opportunities for 16-25 year olds. I held "Critter Creations" workshops where I taught and helped people to make their own plush critters to take home with them. It was a really successful weekend, with potential to do more. Before hand I created some of the line up of this year's festival, including Devendra Banhart, Marina & the Diamonds, Jay-Z, Florence & the Machine and Simon Neil from Biffy Clyro.
To follow on from the workshops, I created a blog where I documented most of the critters people had made over the weekend.

Gruffles & his friends

Back in April one of my critters was part of Helen Frik's exhibition "Difficult". Here are some photos from the successful show including Gruffles amongst 200 odd more hand made plushies...
