Etsy Front Page & My First BiTM

Hi everyone, hope you all had a great weekend. I had a weekend filled with renovation bits and pieces. This morning however, I woke to an email telling me that one of my garlands had made the front page of etsy ..... wow, can you imagine my excitement!

Below is the image from craftcult. The lovely ladies at craftcult put together a treasury on their favourite Christmas colour. I think you will agree, there are some beautiful images of Christmas goodies from all over the world included in the treasury. If you would like to see a larger version with proper links, go to here.

On Friday night I had my first BrisStyle Indie Twilight Market. My sister (who I am very grateful to for her help) and I, had a great night! Despite the threat of rain, King George Square had a great vibe with loads of people looking to buy handmade. All the stallholders had fantastic stands with lovely twinkling lights, there was a band playing, and the atmosphere was great. Thanks to all who stopped by, it was lovely to meet you, thanks so much for your purchases and kind words.

Below are some images taken after we finished setting up. Not a very flattering image of me in the first one - my sister encouraged me to be in the shot, and as I wouldn't this is the best she was going to get!

Thanks again to all the lovely BrisStyle ladies who do such a wonderful job setting up and controlling the markets. They make everthing seem like such a breeze!!

Best laid plans: I had intended to visit everyone over the weekend, but with so many things to do on our reno. completion list, I didn't think my husband would have appreciated this so I will visit you all soon - I promise!!
