The 2nd of Two Halves!

Today was nothing if not eventful!

We got to the site (which was outdoors - the second outdoor one of the weekend), put the gazebo up, bent down to pick up the mallet to put the pegs in and a huge gust of wind got underneath it and sent it flying. It ended up upside down over by the car. Luckily some helpful stallholders grabbed a leg each and we managed to get it upright and tied down before it happened again.

I then spent the rest of the day picking teddies and boottees up off the floor as the wind kept blowing them away.

Still, it was all worth it as I ended up selling 6 nappy cakes, one cupcake and two baby blankies.

So, all in all a very good weekend sales-wise.

Also, got home to find a sale from my website.

Let's hope all this is the norm and not the unusual and that the sales fairy keeps with me for a while.

A Good Bank Holiday Weekend

Well, a quick update for you as to how things are going with the nappy cakes.

Weather-wise its been a typical bank holiday weekend - wet and windy! However, I attended a fair near Bedford on Saturday and luckily the rain held off until approx 10 minutes before the end but of course I hadn't managed to get everything in the car so had to struggle putting the gazebo down in the pouring rain.

On the upside, I did manage to sell 4 nappy cakes and 5 keepsake boxes! A complete and utter record for me at any show I've ever done. Its really brought it home to me that actually people do like what I make - its a great feeling.

I'm at another fair tomorrow nearer to home. Not sure how I'll do but fingers crossed it'll be another good day.
