Let's meet up

Sometimes after months of routine work, things suddenly get hectic.
It is right now happening in ALL areas of my life. The quiet village life is suddenly disturbed by big decisions, and the crafting, for once, takes the back seat. I live and breath my craft, but it has kind of smothered the other things I should be doing, meeting friends and enjoying more than work.
I had quite a few tough years in my personnal life, and working making fairies has been a screen that protected me from feeling too much, as long as I was working it was enough. Work helped me keep my sanity, but was also used as an excuse for not questioning too deeply what my life was about.
One big piece of news is that I will be at the spirit of christmas fair again this year, so see you there , maybe?

My phone killed my blog and put me on facebook

My blog is kind of abandonned...for two reasons, I have little time and therefore always put blogging at the very very bottom of my list, so much so it never gets done. And I find it difficult to share anything else than professional news, and well nothing extaordinarily new recently.
I can also say that my smart phone has put my computer on holidays, I can now spend weeks without opening it and I still spend millions of hours on the internet, in queues at the post office, in the dentist waiting room. It has freed me from my desk, but because blogging from a phone is a bit more difficult I ended up not doing it for quite some time now.
But it made facebook so quick to use.
Having facebook on my iphone made keeping up with everybody's news so much quicker, so I kind of read less and less blogs too, if they are not linked with facebook.So if you want to follow the fairies news follow me on facebook.
Anyway, I am still making fairies ( I have started to work on christmas stock this week), and I still do fairs. This november I will be as usual at the Country Living fair in London, and maybe, but still to be confirmed, the Spirit of christmas fair in London Kensington. Over the summer I will go to Portobello market (London W11) on most fridays, and Camden lock market (London NW1) on saturdays and sundays, weather permitting, if it is pouring with rain it makes it difficult for me to display the fairies.
I will try to come back and post more often here, but I know I always prefer to sit in my studio making fairies, crafting is my breathing.
