I started my preparations over a month ago, but with so much going on in my little world that i hardly took any pictures along the way.
I started off making my soap batches since i know that once they are made i can just leave them to cure for a month while i work on my other products.

I had an idea of what i wanted, something simple with a vintage look, and nothing too flowery. so i was really pleased with the final outcome. She also designed my avatar and banner for my folksy shop which i was really pleased with. http://www.folksy.com/shops/BobbinsandBalms
Pauline from 3 Little Finches, designed labels for my Lavender & Bergamot Balm, Vanilla & Vetiver Balm, Gardeners Balm, Lime Lip Balm and Vanilla Lip Balm. The labels came out superb and they make my products look a million times more professional.
( i just discovered the colour accent function on my camera so some of the pics are not colour )
One of the products which sells really well at fairs are my bath fizzies with Epsom salt. I decided to make a batch of 'Rose & Geranium' and a batch of 'Lavender' bath fizzies. I usually package them in a brown kraft box with some ribbon tied around, and honestly they look really cute.
My favourite soy wax candles in Lavender & Bergamot, Ylang ylang & Grapefruit and Clove & Orange have also been made for the fair.
