I had a stall at my first craft fair on Saturday! The fair was called Craftaganza and was held in a lovely old building in Brighton called Fabrica. All of my Doodllery range was there including some of my new previously unseen designs and products. I had a lovely day and enjoyed seeing peoples reactions to my jewellery for the first time and meeting the other sellers. I also managed to buy an amazing bright orange fox by Lucy Ashworth – everyone should own one!
I was a bit disapointed with the photos I took, and wish I had taken some more, but here are a few photos of the event. You can also read more about the fair and see more photos on the Craftaganza blog and facebook page.
I definitely cant’s wait to do my next fair and so hope to do another one soon.
I was excited to discover that my latest range for Disaster Designs called ‘Wagtail‘ is a finalist for the Gift of the Year ‘fashion accessories’ category. I really enjoyed designing the range, which is based around birds and cute phrases, and was thrilled with how pretty everything looks!
If you are wondering where you can purchase anything then take a visit to Little Moose which stocks most of it.
I’m super excited that Little Moose is now open – I hope you are too! Little Moose will be home to some of the cutest gifts and accessories around and is where you can also buy some of my own creations. There are so many cute and quirky products out there and I hope to fill Little Moose with as many of these as possible. I’m always discovering new designers and falling in love with there products and so am thrilled to be able to sell some of these brands in the shop. Some of these brands include Made by White, Depeapa and Crowded teeth.
Pop on to Little Moose and have a look!
After the exciting news that Disaster Designs were shortlisted in 7 categories for Gift of the Year we were even more thrilled to discover that we’ve gone on to win for 2 of our ranges. I’m so happy that one of them was my Hello Sailor collection and the other was for our Moomins amazingly cute bag range. The Gift of the Year competition is run by the Giftware Association to reward products of excellence in the giftware industry.
My Hello Sailor range has a nautical and tattoo-style influence with pretty floral detailing. I also managed to include some of my doodles on it by creating a cute little anchor and bird pattern for it.
The Moomins comic range is based around one of the Moomin comic book covers. It’s so cute and I especially love the embroidered rain and cute Moomintroll holding an umbrella on the back of everything.
