Colours of Folksy - pink and orange

I really love to search Folksy by colours and I'm always amazed by what talent and beautiful wares I find. So I'm planning to champion Folksy sellers through a regular 'Colours of Folksy' feature on my blog. This first collection shows how the clashing colours of pink and orange can really work well together.

My first proper wedding fayre

Yesterday I had a stand at my first wedding fayre - I've had my stationery on someone elses stand but this was my first solo attempt. It was at the Holiday Inn which seems to be really popular for weddings, they're more or less booked up for 2010 so we had loads of their brides coming to see what we had to offer. I was quite nervous about how I'd get my stand to look good and not too messy, and for my first attempt I was quite pleased with myself.

For days before the event I had been trying to think of ideas for a leaflet type price list to hand out and ended up with the idea to have a three fold booklet with prices on one side and my designs on the other folding into a neat little square. I have to give my husband some of the credit for this though!
