Beachcombing for driftwood Jan 10th 2016

lovely brisk walk on the beach today collecting driftwood for my little creations.

It’s been rain after rain and grotty weather but we got there and it was so peaceful and calm and dry luckily.

Until after our walk the heavens opened with a big house stone storm lol. We gone stoned and soaked ! 

        Very strange line in the sky from the rain  A container ship has lost a shipment off vanish cleaner and the bottles have been washing up all across Cornwall so was surprised to see one washed up on a Kentish beach      And the heavens opened and hear come the house stones.

Luckily we did get back to the car with a big lot off driftwood, now to be dried out and cleaned and then turned into whatever takes my fancy.

Build up to Christmas 2015 was awesome 

 In the months leading up to Christmas 2015 I had some wonderful Christmas fairs and opportunities to sell my driftwood in some amazing places.

Whitefriers food and craft market in Canterbury. 

 Made in Ashford. 

A beautiful little gift shop selling the most amazing unique hand made gifts.

 And pluckley farm shop. 

A beautiful farm shop in the heart of the beautiful village of pluckley ( the most haunted village in England)

 It’s been hard going trying to keep all stocked up and still doing Christmas fairs, but I’ve loved every minute off it.

These are some pictures off the amazing whitefriers shop in Canterbury where I loved to go once a week to do my shift with the lovely people and surrounded by wonderful hand made exciting gifts.

The shop was amazingly busy all the time and people loved it and could not get enough of it.  

I as many others, recieved orders after orders, my last off which was an order going to someone’s new house in the Hamptons USA .i was excited about that order­čśÇ

      This was the amazing fair for the hospice   This was the lovely St Mary church Christmas fair in the heart of Ashford, such a beautiful venue. 

   Loved making and selling my driftwood Christmas trees, each one different and unique. 

 Driftwood reindeer’ oh my, sometimes I felt like I was making little armies off the little things, I love making these. Such fun and such little characters lol 

   Man cave signs went mentle over Christmas with about 40 of them selling in one month, ideal gift for a man..

  And now I’m back to hunting all my local beaches in Kent for my lovely driftwood, let’s hope 2016 is as awesome
