The craft fair and a gift

On Sunday I had a stall with my lovely friend Lynne at the little garden centre at our local park. I thought you might like to see some photos of the stall.
Lynne makes beaded jewellery and her earrings and bracelets are so beautiful.

We had a lovely time chatting and people and dog watching. There were some lovely pooches who came in after their run around the park so their owners could warm up and browse with a cuppa. There were some lovely customers too.
There is a glimpse of my Christmas Gift at the top of this photo. Here is a better photo of it.
I've made 3 of these since July, one hanging one and two on stands. This one is now going to be a gift for a former colleague for Christmas, lol. I used the Pink ink dragon and the bee crafty sentiment and mdf. I made the first back in August and shared it on Pink inkers facebook page, and am happy to say that Pink ink workshops use mdf from Bee Crafty now 😁.
As this is a Christmas Gift, I am entering it at Allsorts this week, as that is their theme. I am also going to enter it at Try it on Tuesday, where the theme is 'inspired by a song or carol'. My Song would be 'Puff the Magic Dragon'.
Thanks so much for all the positive vibes, as they certainly worked. Our takings amounted to more than the years insurance, the table fee and left me with a little spending money too. We are very grateful to all of the lovely customers who bought our work and the lovely comments we received. It was a great day.
Thanks for looking x

I'm glad the sales were good Sally and your friend Lynne's jewellery looks very pretty too. You must have been working very hard to put all this together and you have laid it out beautifully too. I'm sure your ex colleague will love the dragon plaque. x

What a wonderful display, Sally - it looks great! I'm not surprised you did well with all those wares on offer :-)
I would never have recognised that dragon the way you coloured him - it's stunning. You chose perfect colours and the painstaking addition of the surrounding dots says a lot about you. Beautiful!
Thank you for joining Try it on Tuesday's Inspired by a Song challenge.

Your stall looked great Sally and I'm so pleased to read that you did well. It's always a bit of a lottery isn't it and you just never know how it's going to go. I've really enjoyed the cards and candles that you've shared recently, all very beautiful, thank you xx
