Craft Fair

It has been a very busy couple of months.  My husband had his 50th Birthday, my son had his sixteenth Birthday.   Exam results led to jubilation and school options for A level courses turned to disappointment.  Hopefully things will work out for the best.

The next big event for me is a stall at my first craft fair.  I don't think I have nearly enough stock so will have to keep on making over the next few days.  My stall needs some kind of decoration in the front and I can't decide whether or not to make bunting or to make a garland instead.  I was hoping to stock my etsy shop before the event but this is unlikely to happen now.

When I booked my place at the fair it all seemed such a long way off and now it is only one week away!  I dread the thought of standing behind my stall and the only thing that passes by is tumbleweed!   I really do hope that we get enough visitors through the door to make it worthwhile. 

I will report back after the event and let you all know how the day went!

Don't fret too much about the exams, it all works out okay in the end. I've been through it 4 times and they all turnd out alright and ended up with good jobs.
Grandson did A levels and ended up doing something entirely different to what he had studied for.

As for the craft fair, hope you do well, they are fun. We used to do the years ago.

Thinking about you and sending you good thoughts as you get ready for your fair! :)

Make sure you take some time to breathe! I know how hectic and stressful it can be as you prepare.

Have a wonderful, successful time, Simone!

Sending you hugs and healing energies as you move towards the big event. However it goes, you're already a winner for the lovely things you've created and shared with all of us.
Congratulations to your "boys" and their milestones.
