|Wooden setting carved with knife by Giannis and earrings by Stella|
I took part in it for the first time last year, with my friend an fellow crafter Stella and her mom who is a painter and a crafter too. Since my last post, I was more involved with my other hobbies - crochet, tatting and jewellery making, so it was my handmade, crochetted jewellery that I took with me to the fair, allong with some castille soap which has cured in time for the show.

Overal, it was an OK experience, but as an expat who happens to be married to the only living Greek with small familly and only a few cousins, I also got to observe from the side the way that Greek family, cousins, godfathers, neighbours etc interact and support their own, being such a tight communitty. That sort of gave me a pang in my chest because it reminded me how I miss my familly and friends from Serbia and at that moment. It is at moments like these that I feel somehow disconnected from the people here, even though I am an active member of our communitty.
