#FlashbackFriday: Where, Oh Where Have We Been?

Pawed_Couture_Dogs_Christmas

My goodness! I don’t think any of us realised we had been gone for quite so many weeks! We have missed Blogville so much and would like to thank those of you that left supportive messages for us, wishing us luck with the Craft Fairs!
We will be replying very soon. Until then though, we thought we should pop our noses in and say ‘Hi’ and let those of you who are interested know just where we’ve been all this time!

As you may have read, it was our very first Craft Fair this December, and we were all mightily nervous about it. Personally, I wasn’t bothered if we didn’t sell a thing… it was all about getting the experience under my belt. I am so much more comfortable behind a computer screen, but being out there in the big wide world I find a little daunting. Also, I had to go it alone (well, that’s not strictly true I had a very good friend who was selling her wares alongside of me), but what I mean is, without the pups! It turns out that even though they happen to be staff members… they aren’t allowed to come along! Which we all found a little rude.

Fortunately though, Myfie came up with the genius idea of taking ‘Bob’ along. So I dressed him up in all the festive finery that we created and he became my partner in crime for the weekend.

He was very well behaved, but was a little shy with the customers.

I really had to fight an inner struggle not to cancel the fair all together, but in the end we made it. I took some pictures of our stall to show you. We had some nightmares with the banner, so please don’t pay too much close attention to that. It is still being resolved, but I am sure we will get there in the end.

I was quite happy with how it was all set up in the end, and even did a last minute Fair at a second venue on the Sunday!
So by the end of that weekend, I had three events behind me and I managed to pick up some great tips and experience along the way.

The Fairs were on the weekend of December 6, before and after this day I did a little bit of crafting for my own pups. I decided it would be a great idea to make them some Advent Calendar Bunting. Which, of course starts December 1… so BEFORE THE FAIR!! Eek.
I’d also never even done one single blanket stitch up until this point… great idea, Carrie. It’s not like you have enough pressure on yourself… why don’t you find something massively time-consuming to do in your spare time *eye roll*

Anyway, I did do it and despite messing up the numbers right at the end (if you can name some method to try, I probably did… and I probably messed it up) I was pretty pleased with the final result. Most importantly, the pups were happy with it… or rather they were happy with the special seasonal Delibakies I placed in each pocket.

It turns out this was a genius idea on my part. The pups have been none too impressed by how much I have been out and about of late. I’ve been to a few places where they aren’t welcome to join me, so some daily apologies in the shape of tasty morsels have gone down quite well.

Just after the fairs I was excited to find out the Coca Cola trucks were stopping by our town. Nothing signifies the arrival of the festive period more than the #HolidaysAreComing Coke ads does it?
I have to say though, there was a distinct lack of lights on this truck, it didn’t resemble the ones used in the adverts much but, well, it did help me to feel that little bit more festive. I could have taken the pups this time, but really I think they would have been a little overwhelmed by the sheer amount of people, and I don’t reckon they would have been impressed by the truck much either! Possibly Myfie if he could have gotten close enough to cock his leg up against it…

Back in September we won a giveaway on Facebook from a company called Lillie and Millie, and this week we received our beautiful cards and notelets. I had just finished making the girls some festive hair bows and (MY) Millie was so proud that she matched her little illustrated self, she posed happily for a snap. Ellie, is happy with her hair bow too (even if she forgot to tell her face that) and I think they both look adorable.

I’m hoping to fashion Myfie a matching bow tie before the big day and I’ll be sure to keep everybody posted now we are ready to snuggle on back into Blogville.

All that remains for us to do now is to… err… get ready for Christmas! Yay! In just a few days!… Ahem.What can I say? we like a challenge!

Are you all ready? Are you excited? Will Santa Paws be visiting your house this year?

Thanks so much for being patient with us and reading through this stupidly long post. We wish each and every one of you a VERY Merry Christmas x

 

 

Wordless Wednesday: Six Month Warning

6months

Psst… More of a ‘Whispered Wednesday’ but… Christmas is exactly six months away today and this is how much the pups care! Me, on the other hand… 😀
