Phew!  I've had a ridiculously busy few weeks!!!

We're approaching the end of the school year, so things are VERY busy at work.  My 'to do' list is two sides of A4, and I'm spending longer adding more items to the list than I am crossing them off!!!

Things here at home have been crazy too!  I've been busy preparing for a joint 'Open House' party with some crafty friends....

And the big day is TOMORROW!!!  Aaaaaaaaaah!!!  

I'm excited about it, of course.  But, I'm ridiculously nervous.  What if nobody shows up?  What if lots of people show up, but none of them like my makes?  What if I'm too shy to talk to anybody about my things?  What if I forget something vital in setting up my stall?  What if I give someone the wrong change?  I know this is all ridiculous.  I've done two 'Open House' events before, and survived them both without any major injuries!  But that knowledge doesn't calm my nerves at all.  

I'm a worrier - it's what I do best!!!  Does anyone else panic like this about showing their crafts???  

Everything's ready (I hope I haven't forgotten anything) - all boxed up and ready to go.....

[a BIG basket full of stuff]

[and an EVEN BIGGER basket full of stuff]

[and HEAPS more stuff besides]

..... I'll let you know how it goes.....





  1. Good luck Carly. Hope it all goes well.

  2. Me ... all of the above!!!!

    But the same as you, I just seem to turn up and hope for the best :)

    Your work looks beautiful, and even more vibrant when piled together!!

    Good luck X

  3. Happy end of terming and your "stuff" looks beautiful, the colours are amazing xx

  4. All the best Carly! You are going to sell all of your items I am sure of it and don't worry you ate going to do just fine ! Imagine your customers naked and you will not be nervous that should do the trick :) Jana xo

  5. hello Carly

    lets have a little bit of plain talking here
    "if they don't like your makes they must be nuts!!!! "
    That'll be the least of your worries.

    Everything will go super well...believe me :-)

    Amanda xx

  6. All your items, look wonderful, good luck!!

  7. Good luck, you'll do great!! When I did the craft fair last summer I was super nervous, especially about talking to people... but once I was there I found I could easily talk to people and I had a lot of fun! So I bet you'll be fine once it starts, and your makes are too ridiculously adorable to not do well!!

    Have a great weekend and best of luck!
    Kate :}

  8. Good luck Carly I'm sure it will all go well,looking forward to hearing all about itxxx
