A few last-minute preparations for my table at Craft 2.0 tomorrow. I have been collecting old, printed linen for a while now and finally finished a collection of cushions to take along with me. Thought I'd make the most of living in the same city as a craft fair as usually I have to fit everything into a small suitcase for the plane. So I will have some new cards, some cushions and a few pairs of baby shoes for my table tomorrow. More details about the fair can be found here. Also, thanks to Sue who wrote this article for the Wellingtonista about the event.
I wonder when I will be a real grown-up and learn to manage my time better? This must have been the busiest week of the year, quite apart from getting ready for the craft fair, as tonight we are helping the kids throw a combined party for their friends (with a spooky-ish feeling, hence the candles in jars which I'm placing all over the house.) I can also, with much relief, tick 'learning shorthand' off my list as I've finally reached the speed required in my study to stop having to attend shorthand lessons. I've never felt so relieved to finish learning something! It was very difficult and took over my brain for at least 3 months. Big respect to all those secretaries and journalists out there.
Back to making streamers and lanterns. Wishing you a very happy weekend.
