The Big Blog Card Swap!

Helloooo everyone! The Big Blog Card Swap is now closed! Thank you so much to everyone who's emailed in their details - you should be getting an email soon with your recipient's details!

Don't forget to let us know if you post on a blog about the card you receive - we'd love to see pictures, and link to everyone's posts and photos at the end.

Now the Card Swap really begins! Exciting!!

I also wanted to share something new that I've just discovered is beginning in Leeds over the weekend - I thought some of you might be interested in visiting if you're around! The first of a season of Granary Wharf Pannier Markets are to be held on the new square between the railway arches (the Dark Arches!) and the docks. They start this coming Saturday (the 24th April) and will be held on the last Saturday of each month between April-September.

From the Creative Boom Leeds website: 'The Pannier Markets are designed to attract stalls from a broad range of independent traders including fashion and jewellery designers, specialist food producers, artists, antique dealers – anyone with original, unusual and good quality products for sale is encouraged to apply for a stall'.

Good news for the urban arts and crafts community! Leeds has been sorely lacking in crafty markets since the redevelopment (and stagnation) of the Corn Exchange, so I'm really looking forward to seeing how the Pannier Markets work!

As well as over 35 stalls, pop artist Mark Wigan will also be producing a new piece of illustrative art on a specially built 3D structure and local storyteller Joe Collins will be there to introduce a new series of urban story walks, initially based around Granary Wharf and the Dark Arches.

Sound good? Have a peek this Saturday! I'll certainly be having a nosey around - let me know if you're going!
