1st Craft Show of 2015

Hello again!

After taking a little break, I did my first craft show of this year and it was also my first time out as ‘Espy Art’ rather than ‘Hannah Taylor Pet Portraits’ 🙂

I adore these fairy lights, they really helped make my work stand out

Usually my good friends Vicki (VHS Photography) and Stacey (Perggals) have stalls too, check out their art and photos if you haven’t already, but this time it was just me.

Vicki (VHS Photography) did come along to visit me as a surprise and took lots of photos while I was working on my latest digital portrait.

Classic ‘over the shoulder’ shot

All my stall neighbours were super friendly and helped me settle in right away. In fact, everybody was lovely, I don’t think I stopped smiling all day!

Happy to draw all day long

I was lucky from the very start as I got the car parked right by the door which meant less walking in the wind with all my stuff. Then I was given an 8 foot table, so much space, especially as I only booked a 6 foot one – big thanks to my Dad for helping me set up!

Its a shame I wasn’t able to wander around the show and appreciate everyone’s beautiful displays during the day, but here are just a few of the artists and crafters I met, with links to their work:

Handmade Hannah Crafts

Etch A Sketch

Maggie Makes

Plum Porridge

A Bit Of Glass

My next craft show is over a month away, I just wish it was sooner!

I’d like to thank all the people who visited my stall and chatted to me, and a big thanks to you for reading this blog, you’re great 🙂

Take care

Rise and shine

Honestly, I am so out of sync with the world at the moment – I haven’t even turned over my calendar page! The last week or so has been topsy turvy, and everything seems to have come along at once. Being stuck in bed with a virus really messes with your schedule…

Luckily I am awake now, hoorah! Now, onto important business

I have two Art Trail venues this year, which I am very excited about, so its now time to arrange my display areas 🙂

Hadleigh Art Trail runs from this Saturday 6th – 13th October

Information & a map can be found here : ~ Map ~

( You may notice ‘Boo’ makes an appearance, isn’t she just the cutest! )

I’m sure the Rochford Trail map will be available soon, so keep an eye out and I will update you nearer the time

I wish I had photos and fun stories to tell you, but it turns out life has been pretty quiet this month, hopefully October will be more generous

ta ta for now x
