I'm being a bit of a rubbish blogger, so this post is a bit late but just thought I'd post some photos of my last fair which was fab at the Woodbridge Maritime Festival in Suffolk. I couldn't resist posting photos of my stall at the start of the weekend and then at the end of day 1!

Phew! At last I've added my fridge magnets to my website, it's a struggle to keep on top of everything - painting, making mosaics, doing all the website stuff and now my blog and my facebook page! Hmmm......think I need a PA - wonder if anyone would work for free! So here are my magnets, they are also in my Folksy shop: www.folksy.com/shops/themosaicgarden and will soon be added to my Etsy shop.

I have been so busy lately with craft fairs, orders and the craft co-operative, all I've been doing is painting coasters, coasters and more coasters, so my mosaic work has been neglected. But at last I managed to finish one mosaic picture, admittedly it is a small one but at least I'll have a few mosaics on my stall at the weekend just so I can justify calling myself The Mosaic Garden!

Busy, busy as you can see from the rows of little tiles I've been painting for my fridge magnets which I'm hoping to get in my Folksy shop this week. Lots of craft fairs keeping me busy plus I'm now part of an art and craft co-operative which is open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays during July and August. If anyone is in Sheringham this summer (it's down Wyndham Street near The Lobster pub) pop in and you will find my mosaics and coasters and also textiles, jewellery, photography, stained glass and painted pebbles all by Sheringham based artists and craftspeople.

I'm showing off my Dad's work today - he made the willow tunnel and seat at Felbrigg Hall in north Norfolk where he works in the walled garden and the willow arbour is by the pond in my garden - lucky me cos I think his work is brilliant!!

Thought I'd post some photos of my stall, I've had some more good craft fairs over the last couple of weeks, at Southwold and at the Weybourne country fair. Just had a disastrous one at a folk festival where I was the only craft stall to turn up! I just managed to scrape a profit before packing up early - when will people learn the basics of running a craft fair - advertise! Off to a bird reserve this weekend for a fair so I'm hoping that my bird coasters will be popular.

Had my first craft fair of the year at the weekend in Stamford which went really well, I always love getting out and meeting customers after weeks beavering away making everything - the most popular items were the union jack coasters which I sold out of! I wasn't sure how well they'd sell as I hadn't done them at a craft fair before so I was really pleased - that's my week ahead sorted - painting lots more union jacks! And more birds as they always prove popular, here's a few of my feathered friends which I have at last got round to adding to my website.

Got up early yesterday morning and went to the beach in Cromer to take some photos of my mosaics ready for my website which I'm trying to finish - I had the brilliant idea of taking my sister's dog with me!? So these are the photos I managed to take without the dog on standing on top of the mosaics!

I've just come back from a lovely week in a caravan near Rye and I've been inspired by all the different work by local artists and craftspeople I've seen and its spurred me on to get work finished ready for all the craft fairs looming - I'm terrible for leaving things to the last minute. So here is my latest addition to Folksy - www.folksy.com/shops/themosaicgarden.
