I have spent the last couple of days sorting through all my minis and craft materials in order to get together my 'Must Have List' and my 'Wish List' for Friday and my trip to the festival in London.
I write these lists because I have been known to get carried away by the sheer, wondrous volume of these big fairs and buy either the most ridiculous items that bear no relation to any of my projects both current or future. Or I have bought items that are completely the wrong size or type and are of absolutely no use at all!
This trip I was thinking my list would be quite simple, I have been collecting my witchy stuff for the last two years after all. But in the way of all lists it seems to grow every time I look at it!
Here are my two lists, I am hoping that by coming out publicly I will be forced to make decisions straight from the list and not from the delicious feeling you get by discovering those items that fool you with their whispering 'Buy me....Buy me....You will regret it if you don't......'
Must Have List
1.Long table for potion table- witch shop
2.'Tudor chair' x 2 for witch shop
3.144th houses for toy shop both made and unmade
4.Table for toy shop for dolls house maker
5.Teddy bears for toy shop
9. Shelving units for toy shop
10. A fairy for the witch's bird cage
11. Crochet baskets
1. Mini feather boas for witch house bedroom
2. Anything from Nikki Rowe's stand
3. A potion making witch for shop
4. A glamorous witch for shop
5. Dressed grey stone for witch shop from Richard Stacey
6. Unusual flowers kits
7.A rocking chair
8. Decorated/unusual hat stands
9. A dragon
10. St Leger toys for my toy shop
11 A pair of boots for my witch house
Oh my goodness it could go on and on but I promise not to deviate from the top list and to think carefully before ticking off anything from my 'Wish List'. It's always these items that cause me the most trouble as I have a tendency to get carried away by sheer shopping exuberance!
Now I have all of you as witness I will have to be good!
