P-P-P-Pick up a Penguin

It's been another busy week at Trouble HQ which would explain the lack of blog posts. Last weekend I went to my parents' house for the weekend so obviously I couldn't take all my mosaics with me. But I could take some felt, thread, ribbons and toy stuffing... Which meant that I got busy making penguins. Yes, penguins.


The penguin family has been growing. Rapidly. I think I have made about 50 of them so far - in all different colours with different ribbons to match. These little guys will be available at the craft fair in Balham on 25th March. However, I can't make these fast enough - I've already sold 7 of them before I have even thought to list them or make more. Obviously that is great for me - but I have to make even more now! 

I'm stupidly busy at the moment trying to make enough things to fill my table. I can't remember the last time I was this productive. I felt guilty last night for only making 4 penguins and I have a really long list of everything I want to achieve this week. It's beginning to get overwhelming...

Have you prepared for a craft fair before? Any good tips you can share with me?

Preparing for craft shows can be so stressful! I always frantically craft for weeks before and then once i'm there realize what I guessed would be poplar isnt! Oh dear. My advice is keep up with lists and organization. Make a good amount of each item and go back and make more if you have spare time before the show. Good luck!
