I signed myself up for The Design exchange Market which is in October, to sell my Picklebug brooches and pendants. That's all good, and I'm very excited as I'm sharing a table with my good friend Michelle from Bok-Bok-B'Gerk. The reason for my little melt down is I am going to China in 18 sleeps and need to have everything finished before I leave. That's approx. 350 brooches and 100 soldered pendants. And to make it a bit more challenging for myself, cos apparently I love a challenge, I decided to make and screen print cute little aprons, and make earrings as well. 50 pairs. Yep. I love me.
Luckily I found a lovely lady willing to sew my aprons for me, so that's one less thing for me to do. I only had to cut out all the pieces ready to be sewn and believe me that had my knickers in a knot! Not a hard job, but other things kept coming up and I ended up speed cutting an hour before I was due to meet her. Nothing like a bit of pressure to get the job done!
I feel like I'm taking one step forward and two back. I plan on doing a lot of making in the quiet times at work, but guaranteed I'll always leave one vital tool at home. The one thing that you really need to get that job done. It's doing my head in! Universe, why do you hate me so?!
Worst of all, I have had no time to tend to my blog or to read others! I feel disconnected! This blog was being written today come hell or high water. A head cold tried to knock me down but no chance Charlie!
Oh, and did I mention I'm leaving my kids behind when I go to China? 2 and a half weeks without them. Almost the other side of the world. I think this is the main source of my stress.
I have taken photos of this and that to show you, but here's one of those things where the universe is saying
f you! My stupid memory card kept spazzing out and wiping my photos. Over and over. And I'm over it.
Today it decided to work so I'll show you some photos of my ace new furniture from the best shop in the world Modern Vintage.
|Enough distracting you with pretty things, back to my whinging now|
Urgh, I can feel this cold taking over. Sore throat, headache, eyes closing over. Random ramblings. I think I'm going to succumb to it. Drift off into a heavy, crazy dream filled sleep. Oops, better add runny nose and dizziness to that sick list.
Aren't you glad you read this blog today? Good on you if you're still reading. If I saw a whinging rant like this I'd be outta there in .07 seconds.
Feel free to let your troubles out in my comments section. might make me feel a bit better!
P.s, please don't un-follow my blog because of this terrible load of rot, I'm not always like this, I promise!
