First Encounters of a Glassy Kind

So, me being me, I took my work to market fairly rapidly… I have something of an intense R&D process!

These pictures are from the Frome Frost Fair on December 19th which was my last formal Purky engagement of the year.

This is the selection of Glass pieces I took with me.

I made the stand look as Purky as Possible 🙂

This lovely lady was the first person to purchase a piece of my glass work!

This piece sold as well 🙂

I had a lovely evening in Frome and hope to be asked back again soon.

Tired but Happy Purkiness

Ahoy there, how be you all? Lots to talk about, so going to be a tad brisk! hehehe

I have been working manically hard getting ready for shows and such. On the 20th of November Purky attended the Chocolate Festival in Frome.

Remember I had been working hard on new stock, revamping packaging and investing in new display equipment?

Well, do you think it was worth it?

Ego a Go Go that I am, I was super proud of how the stands looked. Been working into the early hours of the morning getting ready for this 🙂

I work full time as well, so been spending the hard earned pennies on the new display gear.

I know it probably sounds silly but it looks so …..legitimate? Like I really am a jewellery designer and polymer clay artist rather than a pretender.

Isn’t it odd the way we seek to validate ourselves?

Anyways, sadly the festival wasn’t my best trading show but it was delicious being there again. I really loved it last time and this year was also fabulous.

I did some brilliant networking and met lovely people.

I felt proud of my work for the first time in a very long time.

I got to spend the day with my amazing friend Vix, or Mrs Super VixieAsbo of www.supervixieasbo.blogspot.com (She was totally awesome)……(We ate really tasty alcoholic truffles together)……(and cream cakes)…..(hehehehehe)

All in all? a Victory. I went to bed very satisfied with the day’s events.

I was rushed of my feet so sadly didnt get chance to take many other photos which was a shame but check out Muriel Lavender’s blog http://muriel-lavender.blogspot.com/2011/11/if-chocolate-be-food-of-love.html?spref=fb and FromeTV made a film of the event http://www.frome.tv/2011/11/dip-into-fromes-chocolate-festival/

If I promise to blog more frequently would folks let me off? I have to write up about the Storytelling performance I did, Hogswatch trading and other exciting things.

For now though, off to bed. My faithfull feline snuggled up beside me.

Massive hugs you lot
