Butterfly Glass Cube. Hand Made Monday

Hi all. Hope you're all well and in a crafty mood :)
This week has been extremely busy for me due to the craft fair, which took place yesterday inWrexham. I dug out my painting pots again and had been painting fresh new glass like mad all week, from Monday to Friday after hours to have some fresh and festive stuff on my stall. The fair was all right, not a big wow though. Rather poorly advertised and on top of that (apparently) there were some other 2 fairs going on at the same time somewhere in the area. Some pics for you to have a peek:







And here is my new creation from this week - a small glassy cube with a pink/purple butterfly motif on it. It sold quite quickly on the craft fair yesterday :) I wonder what a future owner is going to do with it... :) keep flowers in it? sweets? seashells? Turn it into a tealight candleholder?


The butterfly motif has been painted 3 times but in different colour arrangements. The 4th side has been deliberately left blank for the personalised words Specially For You




Thanks everybody for all the comments you've left under my last posts. Pleasure to read them x x x. Welcome my new followers too!
I'm feeling stitchy tonight, after such a busy weekend full of craft selling, shopping, driving round and helping with some home repairs I feel like putting my feet up and relax for the rest of the day with my festive stitches. Shame Sunday is almost over!

Hand-made Monday tonight! Join in and see some other lovely crafty places! I'm curious what others have been up to this week!

  2. The stalls all look nice and clean and tidy and music whilst you work too, can't be bad.
    Love your new creations, I used to paint glass and I know it aint easy to get it just so, well done, they look great.

  3. It's always such a disappointment when organisers don't get their act together with fairs. Such a lot of work goes into all the stalls but sales rely on footfall. I'm glad you did OK though - your glasswork painting is lovely. A bit of evening stitches sounds just right - but it's 9.30pm already! Ouch!

  8. The glass cube is lovely and not surprised it sold so quickly - well done. Fairs seem to be very hit and miss at the moment - always good to meet fellow-crafters though.

  9. That's a lovely tealight holder, I love the colours in the butterfly. It's a shame about the footfall (or lack of) but I'm glad you done ok.

    Take care

  10. The photos are fun, it's like being there. :) And the cube is delightful! It must be cool to think that total strangers take something you made home and love it and it lives with them. :)
