I have to say that it really is most of the same parents and teachers that year in and year out put their hands up to help out, to organise, to run and then ultimately to donate and support these events. It's these amazing people that make it happen and go beyond their job description of parent and teacher. It's not always about donating or spending money either, that's easy enough, but when you give time and energy and enthusiasm, that I believe, is even more priceless at these events, because without all that positive energy and momentum it wouldn't happen and wouldn't be very successful.
That said it was a wonderful and fun day, perfect weather, beautiful sunshine, a great time chatting and laughing with friends and the kids just had the best day ever. After all it is all for them. My day started at the fair at 12.30pm and we didn't finish packing up our stall until 7.45pm a very loooong day. Needless to say I had a very early night last night.
So today has been catch up day around here and I am feeling a little more on top of things but there is still a lot more to be done before I feel like I am really back under control.
Anyway I didn't get a chance to show some wall decor I created for the craft stall at our fair. I just loved how these canvases turned out and I almost didn't want to give them up. However, lucky I did because they both sold within the first 1/2 hour of the fair starting which always makes me feel good, when my artwork is appreciated. I had lots of fun making them and most of the supplies can be found on site. All that you need to purchase that isn't on site is modge podge, a canvas, butterfly and flower nestabilities and paint brush. The rest can all be found here.
