Craft Carnival – all things crafty!

Well, you all know the deal “with blog carnivals” – we have seen the Business Mummy Blog Carnival, the Mummy Blogger Carnival and recently the Flying Families carnival… and I am sure there are loads more!

I would like to host a Craft Carnival – show casing all those crafty people out there – it can be anything from cakes to necklaces to newspaper seedling pots. It can be something for sale or something to inspire others. The only rule is: you nominate someone ELSE’s work (if you really can’t nominate someone else’s send me your work instead, don’t want to miss out on clever and beautiful stuff) So. Get thinking. Get Crafty! And email me on info (a) redtedart (dot) com.

Submissions by 5th April 2010.

Thank you!

    Aaaahhh! Thanks Emma! my first Craft Carnival submission! Hurray!!! You will both get a mention! Look forward to taking a peak at Julie’s crafty balloons!

    Sadly was not “shopping” but “selling”= work. But it WAS a day out, so not like work really. Nice gossip with friend who got me the “invite” and a day away from nappies and wee.

    PS My mum used to be Toronto’s best balloon sculpture!! This takes me back… 😉


  4. Now we know where you get your creative talents!!!!


  5. What a fabulous idea. I love making – absolutely anything – and it’s nice to think it can shared or showcased – just wish there was more time in the day to make. Although I am an ‘artist’ there is still a big crafter in me (a lot of my work is in fact craft based!) and I have just done some pieces for my sisters stand at the Country Living Fair: I find it so therapeutic sitting sewing at times.

    Will be back! And will see if I can find time to submit something by your deadline – thanks.
