Hello Everyone! So we’re into a new week, with Half Term fast approaching! I hope today’s blog is finding you well and sitting comfortably. We’ve been busy at Butterfly Skies and just wanted to update you on a few things… Well, we experienced our 1st Winter Fayre and Fashion Show last Saturday, hosted by the Easthampstead Rotary Club at Sindlesham Court. We were a little nervous, with it being our 1st stall, but we had a fantastic time!
Here are a couple of photos of our stall from the event:-
We were positioned next to the Rotary Club Tombola stall, a fudge and samosa stall (mmmh! We did have a taste – would have been rude not to!) and opposite the Captain Tortue fashion stall who put on a fantastic fashion show and we had a truly wonderful time, meeting them all and lovely customers too! We thoroughly enjoyed the day, and were thrilled that all proceeds from the day went to The Thames Valley Air Ambulance and Haiti charities – wonderful! (We even signed up to join the Rotary Club!).
We have been very busy making all sorts of goodies, ready for Winter, Christmas and Craft fairs and Christmas Gift Parties. In my last blog, I shared some top tips for getting ready for Christmas. We know it’s a way off, but we really hope that the build up to this Christmas 2016 will be a great one for you. We’ll keep you posted about upcoming events – for now we’re definitely booked in to attend the following:-
Saturday 29th October, 2016 2-4pm – Art and Craft Exhibition @ Christ Church, Crockhamwell Road, Woodley. Pop along to see work of local artists and artisans, and then enjoy a coffee or cup of tea and cake whilst browsing the Traidcraft Stall.
Saturday 26th November, 2016 10-12noon – Christmas Fayre @ St James’ Pre-school, Woodley based at St James’ Church in Fairwater Drive, Woodley. Come along and enjoy the tombola and stalls. Butterfly Skies will be taking hand, foot and fingerprints for mugs and plates – lovely keepsakes for Christmas and a great Christmas gift! We’ll also be showing and selling other Christmas gift ideas.
Sunday 27th November, 2016 2-5pm – Christmas Fayre @ Emmanuel Church, Southlake Crescent, Woodley, Berkshire, RG5 3QW. There’ll be lots to see and do – stalls, children and adult raffle, lucky dip, facepainting and refreshments – to name a few! Join us for the opportunity to buy some unique and handcrafted gifts for Christmas too! All proceeds will go toward a home for 8 orphans in Uganda.
So if you live locally, or even further afield, please do come along and say ‘Hi’! Oh and don’t forget you can book us for Christmas Gift Parties – daytime or evening – with a complimentary Resin Pendant for the Hostess as a Thank You :-).
Each week – I’d just like to leave you with a thought or quote which has encouraged ‘Butterfly Skies’ and hope it might encourage you too – Here is today’s:
Thank you for reading everyone,
Until next time, Anna xx
