An exhibition of all the entries to a competition I set up and have been running for the last six months opens today! The idea was to find a creative reuse for old library books that had reached the end of their borrower life (and before anyone complains, yes they where in a book sale and I only used the ones that didn't sell and where falling apart!)
Members of the public picked one old book each then had 4/5 months to remake them into something cool, I am totally blow away by what I got back in the last few weeks. They are just amazing!!
I just realised that I haven't followed up on the last craft show I did...can you guess how it went from the title?!
Yep most rubbish craft show I've ever done, it was in the back room of a sticky floored pub and every other stall was charity style jumble. I think we had two people come in the fours hours I stuck it out. At least the stall looked good...
They also for some reason gave us a table right next to the massive speaker that was pumping very loud random music all day (I think the really low point was popular tunes played on the bagpipes!) Note to self, avoid this one like the plague next year!!
Oh well you win some and you don't even make the table fee back on some! Better luck next time.
