Craft Fair Season is Underway!

Craft Fair Season is Underway!

The first craft fair for 2017 is done! All week long the weather forecast had been for sunny weather, then we woke to rain. It rained on and off all day long, but we still did very well as in the few minutes it was dry, people were eager to see what was under the tarps! Caroline’s Mother’s Day card was very popular. It is up on Instagram but hasn’t made it to Etsy yet, so if you want to buy one, you’ll have to send a message via the contact form on this site.

Here is a brief (and silent!) video of our table. Click on the photo to start the 13 second movie:

New Hope April 2016

We’ve just learned that it is going to rain again next Friday, so need to get used to outdoor craft fairs in spring! You can always shop for our cards, gifts and decorations in the warm and dry at our Leaves of Paper Etsy shop and origami cards, gifts and decorations from this Etsy shop.

First Craft Fair of 2107 in New Hope, PA!

First Craft Fair of 2107 in New Hope, PA!

Upscale Yard Sale Craft Fair

This Saturday it will be our first craft fair of 2017! We will be at the Upscale Yard Sale at Curious Goods, 17 W Ferry St, New Hope, PA. It is a few steps off the main street in New Hope, and easily reached from New Jersey and the Philly suburbs. The weather looks to be beautiful too, warm and sunny. Please come by and say hello to us!

It feels like a lifetime ago that we were doing a string of craft fairs running up to Christmas. From late September to mid-December every weekend we can be found at a craft fair somewhere, and there is a momentum to this continuous movement. Once we stop, however, the momentum fades away. We have been busy making new things to show you since January, but there is still that ‘first day of school’ sense of anticipation now that packing for a craft fair is no longer second nature.

Earlier this week the ‘bag of bags’ went missing. It wasn’t at either house, and yet we knew it hadn’t been thrown away either, so its location was a mystery. In time Caroline found it hiding  – under some other bags of course – so all is well again. We have bags to put your purchases in, tables, clean table clothes, quarters for the meter, and all the IKEA bags of items for sale, ready put in the car on Saturday morning.

Craft Fair News

Craft Fair News

We are very excited to announce that we will be participating in the Bristol Borough First Fridays in May and June! We will be bringing a selection of cards, gifts and decorations with us, and in June will be demonstrating activities throughout the evening! Caroline will be demonstrating how to make her origami stars and I will be showing how to create doodle coloring cards. It should be a fun evening for everyone, and we are already preparing our materials to bring.

For those who haven’t seen Caroline’s origami stars, these are photos of some of her stars. (Click on the photos to see more!)

The stars look very difficult to make, but once you have learned how to make them, you might be surprised!

I will be demonstrating how to use a number of different doodling techniques to convert a simple shape into a fun coloring project. Here are some examples of how I’ve used them.  (Click on the photos to see more!)

Again, it may look a bit complicate, but I will show you how to do it!

Come and say hello if you live in the Bucks County or just across the Bristol Bridge in New Jersey. We would love to meet you!
