I don’t want to pander to egos…. but I don’t want to be bitchingly honest either. Haven’t traded in a street market for ages!!!! So don’t really know what to expect….especially being that this new market I’m trading at is piggy backing off Portobello Market. Supposed to be an artisan market….can’t see lots of artists about. Just lots of fabric! Doesn’t seem like….
I take it all back!!!! I’m loving the variety at this new market….just had a browse….I’m inspired. The most beautiful rings by Dicle Erver and beautiful triangular bags by Dea Akwa and soooo much more!!!!
Yep….it defo is an artisan market!!!! Love it!
Another interesting day ahead….been hard at work-ish.
Work in progress…..
Concertina journal featuring handmade denim paper. The denim paper has very interesting textures….credit goes to 6th form students of Highshore School, Camberwell (part of the handmade @ Highshore initiative).
I’m really looking forward to trying out some more paper these students are making.
Wow….the vibe here is pretty awesome!!! So many creative people under one roof!!! I have never traded at an African Christmas market….I had no idea what to expect. And the feedback!!!!! And networking….getting links to shops.
I just loooovvvvveeee how creative people can be. This is pure eye candy!!!! I simply adore fashion and jewellery.

I’m truly knackered!!!! So much on!!!!
So this Saturday…..
And then afterwards….
Just need to get through each day….
Never done a themed Christmas market before so should be quite interesting (I hope).
The days are flying by….
I am most definitely singleminded. (Just throwing it out there).
Don’t know if it’s a good or bad thing right now…don’t want to go down the ‘tunnel vision’ route.
I have come to realise that I actually need to force myself to take time out.
Y’know what? Being singleminded is not all bad. Focus is good. Bloody mindedness…now that would be a problem….tunnel vision in all its awful ‘glory’
Defo need to find time to smell the roses.
I simply have to assume that the only reason I’ve not been blogging lately is because I’ve got so much on…and I’m probably keeping it all so close to chest. I have the tendency to blab so in order to keep schtum I find myself not chatting at all….
