a sneaky peak...

I've got lots of top secret projects on the go at the moment which proves a little tricky when it comes to the world of blogging. 

Tonight I have been whipping up custom travel journal for a birthday gift for a friend of mine who is going on a lovely little trip with her hubby for her 50th birthday this weekend.  I also made a never been seen before 50 things to do before 60. 

As for the rest of what I'm up to well that's just too top secret to share at the moment.  Watch this space as I will be taking lots of bad photographs photographs to share here once it's safe.

a trip to the big smoke

This half term me and Mr Sew Make Smith took a little trip to The Big Smoke.  We had a great time visiting The Sunday Up Market. We were wowed by what we saw and I was truly inspired by the all the fab handmade and vintage for sale.  Our taste buds were also tickled by yummy sushi and dumplings; definitely worth a visit if you have never been before.

We also got to stay in a spiffy hotel were we were greeted with warm cookies and treated to fizz and popcorn!  Who could ask for anything more!?

Formby Village Market

I realise I'm still not getting the hand of this regular blogging business but please do try to put up with my lack of posts I will try harder!  I know you are all dying to find out about the craft fair after all it has been nearly two weeks so here goes...

The Craft Fair was busy but unfortunately there didn't seem to be much buying going on.  I did make a few sales and was so lucky to have such great friends, family and colleagues who came to support us.  Even though I didn't make my first million I am so glad I did it.  It was a great experience and a lot of fun.  The deadline was a good goal for making me produce lots of work.  It has made me more excited about this year and launching SewMakeSmith and all the opportunities that await me.  Now I just need to get everything listed on etsy so I can sell sell sell!
