New Moo cards and the Patchings Festival

Yesterday my latest order of Moo cards arrived!  They look fab as always – I particularly like that fact that you can now customise the back, allowing me to add a picture of mybeaded tree I’ve started using as a logo.

The beaded champagne bottle is a new picture I’m trying on a card, I’m really pleased with how it’s come out.

This was perfect timing as today was the first day of the Patchings Art, Craft and Design Festival.  As we’ve a studio at Patchings we’re exhibiting at the show, and it’s definitely an occasion you want to have plenty of business cards on hand!  Sadly, it’s been drizzly all day, but that doesn’t seem to have affected the visitors – I believe we’ve had 30 coachloads today together with plenty of individual visitors.  We always get a lot of art groups on the first day, which means plenty of people interested in talking to us about what we do.

I’ve not had a chance for a proper look round the show yet (just a quick look into the Jewellery and Mixed Media marquee when I was putting balloons up), but it seems really good – I’m looking forward to a proper look round tomorrow.

I’ve been playing with resin over the last week or two, so put out a display of some new magnets made in bottle caps with various inclusions and a charm dangling from the bottom.

These were SO MUCH fun to make!  I’m now playing around with some bezels we’ve made to try and include resin in jewellery – hopefully I’ll get the first of these finished tomorrow.

Right, time to get everything together for the next day of the Festival…
