Snapshots Of Market Day // Creative On The Coast...

So last weekend finally came! If you have been following along with my Instagram and Facebook pages you'll know what's been happening. I can now proudly say I've done my first ever market stall...YAY! It's something I've always wanted to have a go at , and for awhile there thought I was going to be a fairy doing kids face painting! I'm very thankful I went in a different direction. I think the kids would have all ended up with camoflage stripes under their eyes by the end of the day, haha. All credit to those who love to be the 'face painting fairies'.  

Here are a few snap shots (not the clearest photos but you get the idea). I really enjoyed setting out the stall with the great company of my mother, Vivienne and my friend Babs. These two also poured their hearts into making some fantastic items for the stall, adding to the variety. Mum, @gretashandcraft  made some beautiful crochet and knitted items, ranging from baby blankets to pineapple tea cosies. Babs, @patchworkcactus  put together some awesome plywood pictures of clouds, cactus, and little houses. Everything worked so well together complimenting my weavings beautifully.

While we didn't come out millionaires... I can say that we had such a positive first time experience and we are definitely looking to the future and setting our sights on more market adventures.

ps. If you visited us at 'Creative On The Coast' markets and you missed the opportunity to purchase a weave or another item, it's not too late! I invite you to contact me via my email
I'm also in the process of setting up my online store (more on that soon). I'd love to hear feedback from any market goers! xx

Fun With Pom Poms // Lets Make A Cactus...

Seriously! How much fun are pom-poms? It doesn't matter if you're five or eighty two it's something you can make and once you've mastered the basic pom-pom you'll be able to knock this bad boy up in no time.

You're going to need a few things...
One medium sized green pom-pomOne small sized pink pom-pomOne medium sized brown pom-pomScissors Glue (I highly recommend using a hot glue gun, much easier and less messy).Cardboard egg container (to use one cup section as the cacti's little pot). Some Paint (I used gold spray paint).

Firstly cut and trim one egg cup section from the carton. Paint your egg cup container 'Pot' and leave it to dry. It should be dry by the time you have finished cutting your cactus into shape.

Make your three different pom-poms in the colours and sizes needed. (Make sure you leave the tied pom-pom strings through the centre of the pom-poms long, you'll need these to tie your pink and green pom-poms together). 

The trickiest part …
