I’m now back to blogging. There’s been a few bugs going around and I seemed to be hit with several of them at once a while ago. It’s been the most ill I’ve been in quite a few years. It all managed to past just before this weekend so now I can get back to focusing on blogging and Christmas presents. Apologies to those bloggers who I normally read and comment upon. Feeling yuck did put a damper on things.
Orders have still been getting sent out while I was under the weather. I tried to make them look like Christmas gifts for the holidays.
A couple of years ago I blogged about my local church having a display of scenes of the nativity that members of the congregation had made. This year they decided to create new displays and open the church to the public for a couple of days to show them. This time though, the scenes were based on Christmas carols instead.
Here is a small selection of those displays. You can click on the photos to zoom in if the photos here are too small for you.
This weekend also saw me attend my final fair for the year. This one was at a new venue for me – the Star and Shadow Cinema in Newcastle. The weather was a bit better than forecast which helped the crowds to come out and I caught up with some stall holders there who I’ve met before but had not seen in a while.
I brought my own folding table which meant having a smaller display space than at other fairs I go to, so I just put out a few things and switched items during the day to keep the stall looking different.
There was a bit of a surprise about half way through the day. Someone came in covered in bells and wearing a santa hat and started singing Christmas songs for all of us.
I hope all of your Christmas preparations are going ok. I’m getting ready for a change of pace. The deadline for ordering gifts from my website is Monday night, after which I can then focus on making Christmas gifts for my family. It will be good to finally have them all done and wrapped.
