Black Team CRAFTfest - Part 6

Norfolk Wood Crafts has been one of my favourite places to stop by each and every CRAFTfest.  There are not too many of us males around the craft sites and so we tend to stick together.  Paul though is a very very talented craft's man.  This is what he says about him self....

"Welcome to norfolkwoodcrafts, my name is Paul and all my items are handmade in my North Norfolk workshop using reclaimed timber and veneers.I hope you find something to tempt you and thankyou for looking."

He has some gorgeous items you can vote for and promote on Craftjuice if you like.  I know that the favour will be returned with great enthusiasm.  You will also catch him on Facebook.

Just a hard working mother who taught herself to sew to kill the boredom of having too much spare time while her child grows into an independent teenager and to find other things to fill her life with other than working and looking after family and home . As I learned skills, both hand sewing and using a machine, I started thinking of my own designs and making pretty things for my home . Friends , family and colleagues saw what I was producing and started asking me to make gifts for their loved ones. Now .....here I am making many different novelty accessories in multiples due to demand and selling at local Craft events on the advice of my much needed and helpful friends . Please take your time to browse at my products and do not hesitate to contact me if you should have any queries or would like to make a purchase . Everything I make is designed and crafted by me , so each gift / home accessory is totally unique. I can also make special gifts / accessories specific to your tastes and needs . This website is updated regularly with new and exciting crafts to fill your home and your hearts . ENJOY xx

Black Team CraftFEST Stalls - Part 1

Well it has finally happened....

The girls at Creative Connections have finally allowed a man into the innermost enchalons of that wonderful event known as 'Craftfest' and they have given me my own team!

Slightly weary of all that pink I was quickly bribed with the promise that I could name my own team and choose a colour of my choosing.  Well there is only one way to stand out amongst all that 'CRAFTfest" pink.  Black seemed much more masculine, sexy and discerning.  It is time to introduce you to the "G Team"!

And my first introduction goes to the great Lori - otherwise known as the 'Scarlet Wolf' from the Crystal Cavern.  She is a fantastic promoter, great team player and fabulous crafter.  This Fest she is offering two Stalls - one in jewellery and one in supplies  Here are some of her items.  You will also find Lori on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Wanelo, Blogging and on Stumble.

I try to cater for all budgets." Lots more lovelies on their website at The Very Small Company!"  You can also follow them on Facebook or Twitter.
