Looking Good!

9 days to go till market!

I have completed alot...but still not really enough stock and would like more of a variety of hats, tees and headbands.

I will be trying to get the kids singlets sorted out for next time. Too much to order and dye before the big day.

Here are some samples of my necklaces. Photos taken on phone so not the best quality.
What do I charge?? Thats the question most annoying me at the mo....suggestions?

Am I insane...can I do it???

This is a rough idea of what I have to do for Perth 4 weeks

· Order plain white cards (for small clip display)
· Order stuck on you stickers (waiting on advice from Etsy girls)
· Buy more beads
· Sew 50!

· Buy more necklace fishing line thread
· Receive beads from AM
· Design and make necklaces. As many as possible.

· Complete backs of all flowers
· Iron on labels

· Buy Bonds singlets????
· Attach flowers

· Find tressle table
· Cover frames for small flower display
· Design large flower display
· Buy turf
· Buy skirting fabric
· Buy wooden letters and paint (sunny and fine), set onto fabric fame
· Make fabric flags with sunny and fine
· Buy brown paper bags
· Set prices and make price signs
· Gift wrapping???? To do or not to do

So am I mental...I am seriously worried I cannot do this in time.

So I have had a setback and I am behind in my goals.

I was hospitalised on the weekend after having an Epileptic seizure. Recovery is usually pretty quick, except this time I may have broken my nose. So I am very sore and sorry. And basically need rest.

So my goals have been put on hold. I have sold 2 more flowers yesterday. So that is good.

I MUST get the application form into upmarket!!
