My Mom treated me to a day off at a major craft fair!!! Hubby took the day off to take care of the kids. I stayed over at my parent's house the night before the fair so that we could leave very early.
I didn't take many pictures of all the wonderful stands and clever people. I guess that I wanted to be selfish and just enjoy everything without thinking about photos.
My Mom however, did take some pictures :o) I got to try lots of new crafts.
These are all straw creations
and then I got to try soft pastels for the first time!
I loved it, getting my hands on the pictures to blend was just up my street.
When I got home and showed the kids they said "Wow Mom, it looks like someone else drew it"!!!!
This was a cake made from seed beads. Can you imagine how long it took to make!
I got to make a bear too.
The kids didn't miss out though as Gran bought them all metre long licorice ropes from Italy.
