Handmade Monday 72

Well I have to say Is it Monday already???
Hasnt this week gone quickly I must say I havent done too much crafting as I have been searching out exhibiting space for my encaustic art
Well I have found somewhere great its in Totton Southampton and its called hanger farm arts centre Its a fantastic place and so so busy this year, but I have booked up to display next year with two of my very good friends Jo and Deanna who are also fantastic artists I am so looking forward to it I had a great time then spent the afternoon looking at my lovely pond as it was so sunny
If you remeber I was due to go to an Open afternoon on the Friday , well it was a fantastic afternoon Here is the link to the article about Mums and Business It is run by Theresa and Terry and they are the most inspiring people you can ever meet so if you are a mum in business please take a look the lounge is in Fareham in the most beautiful location
The last thing I did this week was go to a great party on Saturday night a very good friend of mine was celebrating her big birthday it was a total surprise for her and she looked beautiful I made her a great picture but me being me forgot to take a photo but dont worry once its on her wall I will get her to take one
this is us at her party
 So all in all a fun week
Now this is a handmade blog so now its time to pop over to hand made harbour and check out all the other great blogs

I have had a lovely week all the paintings I finished last week are now on show in The lounge in Fareham ready for their open day next friday heres the link Its a lovely place for mummies to work in a very relaxed atmosphere Their is a membership that entitles you to discounts on hiring a desk/room for the day.
I will be there on Friday doing some demos in Encaustic Art along with lots of other mummies
I also went along to a networking coffee morning and met some very lovely ladies with their own businesses and a very kind lad called Anji invited me to a jubilee Fayre which is for arty people I am just in the process of filling in the forms
As for crafting I have not managed to get anything done so I am going to add a few photos of one of my more recent fairs
