Huge apologies, I disappeared without a trace for a while - an impromtu blog holiday (yes, another one) - suffice to say, lots happening (as usual) and I will reveal all now!
Anyway, at last, I can tell you about my day at the Candy Floss Summer Fair, which was well over a week ago now. I spent the few days running up to the big day working hard getting everything ready, last thing on the friday night I was raiding our loose change jar as Id totally forgotten about my float (oops!)
Saturday morning dawned and I was really excited, its been a long while since I did anything like this so I was looking forward to it. I got to the Millenium Galleries early on and set up my stall, other stall holders arrived and there was a really good atmosphere. By ten o'clock the doors were open and the public streamed in - within the first hour I made my first sale (isn't that a great feeling?) and the day went very well for me, I enjoyed talking to people and playing shop all day and was delighted to sell quite a fair amount of stuff, my boxes of Beachside Art cards were a favourite and Id sold out by noon!
Phew, what a whirlwind day it was indeed!
Since that hectic weekend, Ive been busy working on new stuff, spending time with family and dealing with a nasty stomach bug - thanks to all of you who stopped by with messages etc, I will be making some time to visit your blogs this week I hope!
This is short and sweet as Im still rather weary from the bug thing - but before I go, I have some rather exciting news to share with you - I was recently contacted by a Literary Agency which specialises in representing childrens book writers and illustrators and I was invited to meet up for a chat. I am over the moon happy to tell you that the meeting went very well and I am in the process of sending some prints of my work to them, which will be making their way to some publishing houses in London very soon. Its the most exciting opportunity, and I'll keep you posted as the journey unfolds.
I hope you are all well, looking forward to catching up with you again soon.
