reasonable absences......

Ok... so I haven't blogged for awhile....
This is the reason why!
These are some of the candles, melts, tea lights and lip balms I've been furiously making over the past few weeks for Niche, with more curing as I am taking this picture.
This 3 day designer market hits Launceston from the 27th - 29th November (10 till 4) and looks to be a huge event. Lots of familiar faces from the last Niche market, near Mothers Day, earlier this year, but some very tempting new folks as well!
After such a great response to my candles at the last market and in the time between, I decided very early on to concentrate on that side of things this time around and bring aboard Natalie from Gypsy Hill (more info soon), to fill the other half of the stall with her beautiful soaps.
That way it has saved me both the cost on ingredients and some serious production time! Plus we can spot each other for loo breaks over the weekend!
These are some new mosaic containers that I managed to get from my suppliers at a good price as they are a discontinued line - but I thought they would make a great 'Yuletide Collection' being red and green. I picture them in the centre pieces of folks Christmas dinners and so have filled them with fragrances such as: Tangerine, Applejack (red apple and cinnamon), Vanilla and Rhubarb. Hope folks like them.
Tell one...tell all... come along and see what great talented and craftie people we have down in Tassie!

Hey Annie, they all look gorgeous. I'd be suprised if you don't do well at these markets! The mosaic holders look fabulous for Christmas. Wish I was closer to Tassie, cos I'd be there! lol.
Thanks for your visit with your great comment. x
