I love it when a plan comes together!!

Well, it's not long to go now until the Contemporary Craft Shopping Experience on Sunday 22nd November. OK, so it is actually quite a while away, but as I've been involved in organising this and we started planning at the very beginning of the year, it seems like it's not too long to go now.

We have some great exhibitors confirmed from all over the Midlands and beyond, and have been busily getting press releases sent out in the last few weeks. The leaflet design is now finalised and 20,000 have been printed!

Exhibitor details are continuously being uploaded to the event website here, where you can also buy advance tickets for the show and be entered into a draw to win £50 to spend on goodies on the day!!!

I'll try to post a few more in depth details about some of the exhibitors soon...

Well, I didn't think I'd find the time to blog regularly, and I was right!!

I've just returned from a lovely week in Meganisi (a small island off the west coast of Greece) which has given me some inspiration to make some really bright coloured jewellery for Autumn - perhaps a little bit against the usual autumn trends of browns and rustic colours, but then I'm not known for following trends :-)

Above is a picture taken from Spartochori village on Meganisi, overlooking the small harbour and jetty.
