Photos Hosted

So the task I have been working on recentlybaubles red card_tn is to move all the large photos from the website to a free photo hosting site to ensure I don’t run out of space on here. That job is now completed, including testing the website, and I am happy to report that it all went smoothly. On the marketing front, setting up an Instagram presence is the next task.

 

wisemen black card_tnIn other news, Didi Lou Crafts now has 6 events booked for the remainder of the year, with the first one scheduled for October 17th. The Halloween items are completed, as I am only attending the one fair before then, but I am still working on some final Christmas themed items.

Paper and Books

Paper is the traditional wedding anniversarysequin heart box_tn gift for the first or second anniversary, depending on which country one lives in. Whilst the modern world has tried to move away from the use of paper, with paperless offices and electronic mail, diaries and books, we still use a lot of paper and crafters are included in this. Card making can be a simple craft to start with and the range of papers and card available is amazing. Decoupage, decopatch, quilling, papermache, silhouettes, scrap booking, paper flowers, paper folding… all simple paper with a little embellishment. Book folding is a newer craft, one which looks interesting, but not something that Didi Lou Crafts will indulge in. Whilst I am all for upcycling, I am not sure I could bring myself to upcycle books, especially as I have a real love of reading, and much prefer the physicality of a book rather than some form of electronic reader.

barbie bag_tnMany of the items available at Didi Lou Crafts are paper based, from cards to the decorated boxes, some of which are papermache. Check out the cards at https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/DidiLouCrafts/Cards and the boxes at https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/DidiLouCrafts/Boxes on Etsy.

First Indoor Fair

August is often the month for holidays for many people here and I am no different taking two short breaks away. I had a lovely relaxing few days away in the north and also spent the long weekend camping with friends. As is the norm with camping here, I have since been drying out tents and recovering from sunburn as the weather was mixed.

Now it is September, I am back to the work and Didi Lou Crafts did an indoor fair this weekend.

I now have a gap in fairs until November, to build up more Christmas stock, but I am also looking for other fairs to attend in September and October.
