Arts & Craft Market. Unfortunately he never saw my latest creation which I am developing for my future craft endeavours. No doubt he would be full of admiration and encouragement, coming up with suggestions of his own.
When I was trying to think of a logo to put on the back of my cards he came up with with the idea that all I create comes from me and so should reflect this. This is why my logo is a representation of me. He made feel it was okay and the positive response of others confirmed he was right.
I take comort in the fact that he is no longer suffering pain. He is loved and missed by all his family and friends. I can talk to him wherever I am and I can cry if I want to and smile when remembering the good things we shared. Some days I am happy and some days I am terribly sad. Through it all I have faith and prayer and my creativity.
Last weekend the third Arts & Craft Market day took place. You can see my collection of photos from the day by clicking here. Because I am dealing with health issues I'd already decided not to have a stall this time. I did take the time to visit and the warm welcome I received made me glad I did. Naturally this was a Christmas market and it was bigger than ever taking up three rooms. I visited every stall meeting old friends and new crafters alike. I took along some of my new knitted keyring/bag charms that I am working on to show Ms Cat, the market organiser. She was so pleased with them she was prepared to offer me a stall there and then, free of charge! I was touched by that but was in no way able to take up her kind offer but I really appreciated the thought.
Crafts Beautiful magazine. I've already given that one to a memmber of my family and I have other cards ready to send with love to other family members. I've also sent a few of my knitted keyring/bag charms to my Mum who immediately fell in love with them and ordered a few including one for herself.
