Hi Nic

I think I'm just going to start putting 'ditto' in your comments.... cos I don't know any more fabulous descriptive words for your creations - and I feel like I'm putting the same thing every day!! Of course, unless it's something I don't like..... which on your blog, has never happened!

Another GORGEOUS creation hon!

So glad you did well at the Craft Fair and had a good day! Colouring while you're there is a great idea... I used to do that when I did the shows on the Island. It always gets people interested...
