November Newsletter 2014 ~ The Big Autumn Market, York
The Big Autumn Market, York
A special gift
Hello! So, I'm still recovering from a really bad intercostal (between the ribs) muscle strain..I'm almost there!
I've been unable to make any jewellery for the past few weeks which I've found extremely frustrating!
It's definately getting better, and I'll soon be able to crack on with making lots of christmas stock for the big upcoming events, yet at the moment I'm extremely behind!
I'm a great believer in 'everything happens for a reason' and have tried to remain possitive! I bumped into a friend in town the other day who said 'sometimes these things happen to make you STOP and REST!'
She was certainly right! I wouldn't have given myself a break at all, as I'm always working! The universe is looking after me, even though it's been extremely painful!
The Big Autumn Market
York was a huge success! As well as making some great new connections and customers, I saw some old familiar faces too. A good night out with some friends was had, I battled through a stomach bug on the first night and smiled my way to the end of the four day event! I was overwhelmed by the response to my work and I'm really looking forward to being a part of the event again next year, both in May and October. The marquee was great, and I was happy to see some of my favourite traders from festivals trading beside me. Win!
I'm not one to sit and do nothing, I always have to be making or doing something! I don't watch TV (nearly ten years now!) and I find it difficult to sit through a whole film as I could be using that time to be getting things done!
I bought a chest of drawers at Tynemouth Market and so while I've been meant to be resting my back, I decided to paint them! I mixed the colours to make a beautiful vibrant turqoise.
It's nearly finished, although I needed to rest! It's needing a dark wax finish to give it an aged distressed look. It's coming along nicely though!
