Quick! Say something...

The seasons are definately changing.  Just a little over a week ago, we were sweltering in balmy 24+ degree temperatures and warming ourselves to the bone in the sunshine.  Today it is howling a gale, raining and everyone is discussing whether to put the heating on yet or to hold out until October and my hands are so cold I can barely type.

This change in season also  marks the start of my busy period on the run to (no, dont say it!!!!!) Christmas (sorry).  I will be attending events most weekends between now and December and have actually managed to double book myself on a couple of occasions because there are so many fabulous events coming up.  Do take a look at the events page to see where I will be.  Bear in mind that some of these events can get very busy so to avoid disappointment, especially whilst the online shop is closed, I am more than happy to take an order and have it with me for collection at any of these events.  Call/email me to discuss.

I mentioned in my previous email that I had the MK Handmade and Vintage Fair earlier in September, this fair was a great success and I loved every minute of it.  I have just signed up for the 3 day Extravaganza in November, which is only 6 weeks away now!  Eek!  Better start stocking up!

Here is a snapshot of me with my stall at the September event. 

MK Sept 2013

Dress:  Lindy Bop
Shoes:  F&F from Tesco
Cardigan: Debenhams

I have a few new products that I will be taking to the MK Fair and will also be showing them at a few other markets/fairs too.  My new Beatrix Potter Cakes are great value for money (possibly underpriced!) so grab yourself a bargain quick!  These are limited as I only have a few of the soft toys available.

I am also thinking about some new products.  

Word is, there is to be a new Paddington Bear program, to be voiced by Colin Firth, coming soon.  I have a few small Paddington Bear toys that I may incorporate into a cake or two.  

Also, whilst my baby sock and scratch mitt bouquets are very popular and work very well as decoration on a larger cake, I do feel that the small bouquets are moving too far away from the "cake" theme, so I have just ordered some mini cake boxes in which I will make up sets of mini sock cupcakes for babies.  They will be beautifully boxed and decorated so that they are ready to be given as a gift.

Again, I am sorry for continuing the use the "C" word but Christmas is only a little over 13 weeks away so I will be baking up a few more Christmas Cakes.

Christmas White

I have also already managed to purchase some festive socks for the Ladies Sock Cupcakes as I know many of you have already started your Christmas gift shopping (you super organised folk!!).

So much to do, so little time!

I mentioned in my previous post that I was off to Goodwood Revival and I will end this post with a professional photo that was taken of me and Mr FFC on the day, thus proving that I will take any opportunity to dress up and get my hair done!
