Here we are again – another year is drawing to a close and
what a year it has been!
An apology for not updating this blog, but it really has
been an incredibly busy year and a year to remember. The year got off to a fantastic start when
@londonfox married her Mr. Fox in a fantastic red and black (yes the bride wore
red and black), rock festival themed wedding in February, so all crafting was
geared towards the wedding, from table decorations to bunting – again all in
red and black – which left us little time for anything else.
Once all the excitement and mayhem had died down following
the wedding, we just about got back on track in time for the Spring Fair at
Surrey Docks Farm in May, but unfortunately the loss of a dearly loved family member
in June, another family member being hospitalised for several months and
@londonfox going on a belated honeymoon put us all out of kilter for several
months after that.
Time has just flown by and here we are already in November
and we are gea…
We have been busy foxes since Christmas. @londonfox has been busy moving and putting her crafty touches to her new home whilst @mummylondonfox has been busy looking after her partner who has been in and out of hospital over the past few months but also making use of the time on the train to come up with some great new products.
Today @mummylondonfox is at Surrey Docks Farm for the spring fair whilst sadly @londonfox is resting at home after a bout of illness this week.
@londonfox though has a big upcycling project coming up. In her new house there is an outdoor room that the previous owners were planning to turn into an office but she plans to turn it into a craft room to give her the space to work (and make a mess without getting into trouble with her husband!).
Hopefully the dedicated space will allow for a few more creations. @londonfox has some ideas on more up-cycled products and with the space to do it she hopes to have a more extensive range for the next fair.
The nights are drawing in and the leaves are falling from
the trees, autumn is upon us. It won’t
be long before the candles are lit, the lights are twinkling on the trees and
the smell of cinnamon is in the air as we prepare for the festive season. Following a nice
sunny Harvest Festival at Surrey Docks Farm on the 12th September, here at Urban Fox Crafts we are
busy beavering away making goodies for the Farm’s annual Christmas Fair which
will be held on Saturday 5th December 2015 As well as the usual novelty knits, upcycled bottle lamps,
decorated candles and picture frames we will have a nice array of things to
fill those Christmas stockings and make your home look festive for the coming
season. @londonfox is getting her fingers working on Christmas tree
decorations, cards and other Christmassy items, while @mummylondonfox is in
danger of setting fire to her knitting needles to bring you some nice cosy ear
warmer/headbands, hats, scarves and mittens to fit young and old, to help ward…
