Well, my first craft fayre is completed!

Phew! After eduring seven hours of standing around by my table, I can officially say I’ve had my first real life stall.

The event wasn’t as well visited as it could have been, unfortunately, (there was another event going on in the same village on the same day - oops!) and I know from talking to many of the stallholders that some people didn’t sell much if anything, but fortunately my low-price glowing things attracted a lot of the other stallholder’s children, who ensured that I made back the price of the table, at least.

I had fun which was the main thing, and met lots of other interesting crafters. I hope I get chance to do a similar event again someday!

I finally finished my Myst-inspired Byzantine-bound journal, this one had a more intricate carving and I am kicking myself for not using my metallic inks on weirdcitysights' journal, I’ll just have to bring my gold ink with me so I can fill in the design and my signature on her journal as well
The spent a long time thinking of a four-word phrase using the Narayan symbols present (I came up with a lot of test designs and phrases), and I settled for “Survival Growth Spurs Questions” which means something personal to me but I suspect is somewhat cryptic or nonsensical to others. At least it looks lovely

Wow, what a treasure!

Sun Wukong, Great Sage Equal of Heaven! I’m attempting to read the Chinese epic “Journey to the West.” Not sure how far I’ll get - while It’s very readable and interesting, it’s also very LONG.
This was my first traditionally drawn/inked piece in a long time and I was pretty rusty, I wish I’d pushed the pose a lot more and made him look a bit more monkey-like. For any Monkey fans out there, the clothing he’s wearing here is that given to him by the Dragon King of the Eastern Seas - a phoenix feather cap, a golden cuirass, and “cloud walking boots” (No idea what those are, I just gave him snazzy shoes) I think most pictures I’ve seen are him in the outfit he gets later from the Jade Emperor.

I’m done with the sides of the box - Now I want to paint and draw aspens all day long.  I love aspens so much.

I love the way you kept the wood its natural colour and just painted the sky. It makes the most of the wood grain.
