My first spirit jump!

I recently joined Spirit Jump as a gift giver and sent off my first jump last week!

The recipient had recently lost her sister to Leukemia so I sent her a little hand-decorated tin full of my handmade ginger fragranced soaps, which are all shaped like stars, hearts and flowers.  Hopefully it’ll help to lift her spirits.

It’s the tin at the bottom-left of this picture that I sent:

18th April ’09: Dunfermline April Craft Fair

I shared a table with Corrigan Cards at the Dunfermline Craft Fair in April.  This was the first fair organised by http://www.craftfairsscotland.co.uk in Dunfermline and I’d say it was a great success!  There was a steady footfall for all 6 hours of the event and a great variety of crafts on offer.

Although I’ve taken my handmade soaps to craft fairs in the past, this was the first time I’d taken any of my artwork to a craft fair.  I was absolutely thrilled with the feedback I received from those who spent time looking through my work and also delighted to sell a few pieces, including my very first commission. 🙂
