So much to say, so little time!

Wow, Hotdog and Me have been absent for awhile huh?  Well we're back woohoo.....and have a bit to get through so here we go.

Firstly, we won a competition, only narrowly beating the bunny maker which was a shock!  It was the Craftjuice Halloween Competition in which we entered Brian.  He's so happy!  If you have a spare few minutes and you want to look at some wonderful crafts pop over there. Our prize was $ that is NOT to be sniffed at.

Head Honcho Hotdog (that's me!) promptly went over to Etsy to indulge my total and utter love of Kitsch by treating myself to some beautiful (well I think they are beautiful) Christmas Tree Decorations.  I bought them from a lovely lady called Appeljar she was so helpful, even more so when I realised she didn't post to the UK.  She went away and found out how much the shipping would cost and then told me about some baubles she hadn't listed and would I like to see them before she listed......well of course I did!!!   Below is what I bought, I cannot wait to receive them.

I know they are not to everyone's taste (and I know Mr H is gonna hate them) but I totally love them.

Hotdog and Me also did a craft fair, although this was not that successful due to very few people turning up, we did get to meet Blue Box Studio a fellow Folksian, which was lovely.

This is our stall with the lovely bunting my sister made.

We ventured over to the dark side as well and opened up an Etsy shop, fingers crossed they like us over the pond.

 And lastly, we posted out 12 sock kits the other day to some of the lovely Folksy peeps.  I challenged them to make a sock creature which they then had to donate to the Crafteroo Children in Need Folksy shop.  If you need a gift and want to do some good at teh same time then go take a look, there are some really nice items in there.

Here's a sneaky peak at one from Fatem from Rara Avis

Also, when all the sock creatures are completed I will post pictures here so you can all see how wonderful they are.

Phew, take a breath! That's all for now Folks da dada da da da daaaaaaaa.

your stall looks fab! I know I would have given some of them a home! Boy no 3 went to bed last night with all three of the doggies (the ones we haven't given away) - he stuffed them up with pj top and said he was pregnant - then promptly 'gave birth' to three puppies - Ron,Jeremy Beagle and skelly dog - although they got renamed for the purpose of the birth as flibber, flobber and flobby. hmmm
I wish I could freeze him at age 6 - so funny and cute!

Oh those baubles are cool - I like them! And your stall looks really good - my first craft fair was rubbish too!

Your stall looks shit, if I'd been there - what would have been most unlikely - I would have walked straight past it and filed a complaint about it.
