I’m So Sorry!!

Oh my loves how I have neglected you! I have literally been up to my elf ears in orders! I have also been to my first fair in a while….. lets see what happened!

IMG_20181117_092711

As you can see the set up of my stall was very different to normal, I had read an article in Mollie Makes magazine, it said that your stall should look like your online images- so I made everything pastel and made some box shelves into little shops! the sign in the middle was a cheap purchase from http://www.Next.co.uk and actually changes colour!

It certainly worked! I sold a lot of unicorns…

These two went along with a couple of different colour ones which I failed to keep pictures of!

I did keep a picture of a Mercorn…

who also found their forever home. I also sold some bows and baubles like these ones .

so all in all a huge success!

Of course there were a million orders too!

There has been a couple of these flying out, one in his traditional Christmas PJs and one in some snappy blue ones……

Fa la La llama has been so popular that I am dreaming up a different kind of llama for you to put your Easter chocolates in!

Of course Christmas orders wouldn’t be complete without this guy…..

We have also sold a lot of these sleepy bunnies……

made from special yarn that is anti microbial, so preventing germs being carried to even the smallest of babies.

There were lots od unicorns including a customer request for a Victoria Sponge unicorn with blue hair! I must confess I wasn’t sure but……

She just might be my favourite!

I also made a bunch of videos for my Facebook advent calendar so pop over to @whiledarceysleeps on Facebook to see what I have been up to!

I would also like to thank my personal cheer squad Michelle, Tracy, Ilisa, Victoria and Lucy, you guys have kept me going through a tricky year health wise .

2018 has been my most successful year yet, but I have lots of plans for 2019 that are going to blow your socks off! and I will most certainly be following this advice from GBBO winner Nadiya Hussein

all that remains is to wish you a Happy Christmas and the most amazing 2019!!

Kisses

Karen

I loved doing this, I have painted for this client before and she always supplies such amazing photos! this is her friends dog sitting in his going out chair!

My competition winners were announced, the over 10 winners mum ordered her a Battenburg unicorn, so with the under 10 and the runner up prizes this made a lovely queue for the post office!

Now, Andreja who won the under 10s prize chose the colours for her blue maned unicorn and that, together with some input from Mr Darcey Sleeps inspired this…
