Art n Craft at Evergreen - what's Kirsty been up to?

 What HAVE i been up to? seriously.... lots! 
I love my life when its busy and full. Not 'stressful' ya know but... with a bite!
So, lets start by talking about Saturday... I went in to Evergreen Art Cafe to help introduce my line of Handmade Christmas Goodies. I had a wee table set-up next to my display corner and I had the pleasure of meeting, and talking to, people interested in the beautiful Art and in my products.
 This is the lovely BIO that Simon wrote about me. I appreciate it and that man is a diamond.
If you are local - seriously get yourself down the art cafe. Its a JOY. The coffee is blinding, the food is so good, the staff are lovely, Simon is as mad as a box of frogs and the ART is STUNNING! Its a little haven of Urban Cool nestled in a very small town.
 Back to me though! This is the PaperFish corner - hooya!
i sold a few bits on the day, even though i was apologising, "its a bit early for Christmas i know..."
But those who appreciate handmade and craft know that these are all unique, limited in edition, once they are gone, they are gaaawwwwwn.
 Got a few ribbon spools in there too. How could i not?
I felt proud, people - not going to lie :) 
I think my products look most beautiful when they are altogether like this, on display and complimenting each other. They tell a story. They are the story of my childhood memories, of the books i read and the family i am BLESSED to be a part of. My decorations are a small reminder that Christmas is for joy and thankfulness and the pleasure / privilege of being loved and giving love. 
 I am back at Evergreen (Daventry, Northants) on WEDNESDAY 9th OCT 2013
for the launch of our Crafternoon Teas!
I will also fit another little 'Meet the Maker'in, on a Saturday nearer to Christmas.
Meeting people is the best part of what i do. The end of my creative process is not the Kerching! of a sale, but the meeting of people who enjoy what i do.
 See you soon - i hope!!

  1. Kirsty, your display looks amazing. I am an avid crafter and love handmade decorations, they are very special indeed. My daughter lives near Daventry and we love going into the cafe, it's a real gem. So next time I will make sure we take a look at your fab corner.

    1. It is good that Kirsty is really taking time to delete some of the comments that are not really helping the other readers. It requires quite a lot of effort to monitor our blogs especially if they have been spammed.
