a half-baked idea

16 May

It has been a very big, very awesome weekend as far as craftiness goes, thanks largely to a bake sale called Half Baked (…Half Craft). It was organised by the people who run the space where we put on our Radical Crafternoons, and it was HUGE! So many people selling fabulous home-cooked things and beautiful hand-made things.

Radical Craft Adelaide (aka, the Crafternoon Crew) put together a stall which actually was about half craft and half baked goods. We had fabulous brownies, yummy orange syrup cakes, zesty carrot cakes and made-from-scratch jam tarts (it’s the only way to go).

We also had our marvellous cross-stitch kits (of course), as well as knitting kits and some sweet hand-stencilled patches:

We also had a rather stunning banner, which I constructed the evening prior to the event, with no small degree of panic:

It will now be gracing the walls of all Radical Crafternoons to come, just as soon as I make the “E”, “R”, “N”, “O”, “O” and “N” patches.

All in all, we sold out with grace and aplomb. (Although we didn’t actually sell out of any products, except the brownies. But that just meant we had something to eat the next day.)  I’m rather proud that we succesfully exchanged craft for cash, aided in no small part by time served in various uninspiring retail jobs.

Who even knew that would come in handy?
