#CRAFTfest. #CreativeConnections.

Today we are having a CRAFTfest blog today. CRAFTfest is an online craft fair created by the website Creative Connections. So you don`t have to go out in the cold and amble around a drafty hall to find wonderful gifts for yourself and others. You can shop at a variety of stalls from the comfort and warmth of your home.
This event will be over the weekend of 26th-27th November and will hold a veritable feast of crafts for your delectation. So put a reminder in your diary or on your calender so you don`t forget.
Today I am showing a few wonderful creations from various CRAFTfest albums that are already set up. You will be able to click on the pictures and view them in situ and they will have a link on the page where you can buy them from if you so desire. I am sure the stall holders won`t object if you want to buy in advance and can soon replace the item with something else.
There is alot of diversity on the Creative Connections website, lots of crafts displayed although as yet not all have the CRAFTfest albums done.
Confession time.... I only started mine on Friday and will probably add a couple of things on the bottom of this blog with links to my Folksy shop. Mainly because I was at work yesterday, all day and at a party in the evening, and haven`t had the time as yet to add descriptions and links. Quite a few pics that I added on Friday are of items not yet listed anywhere.
I am trying, honest. I am often told I am very trying.... isn`t that nice...(tongue in cheek).
As I said, I was at work yesterday, but I did get some crocheting done. The new All in One Hat&Scarf is all but finished, just finishing the edging. I started a new ruffled scarf too and no.... I haven`t finished the other mittens yet, will try and do that today..... maybe.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

Winters coming it`s on it`s way,
