back in action

well, it seems that i needed to take an internet break. i haven't been blogging, or even reading the blogs i follow on a regular basis. i guess that distance is necessary sometimes to maintain a balance.

anyhow, i thought i would let you know what i have been working on - sewing up a storm so i am ready for the may 3rd 'got craft'. i'm very excited to be in my first ever craft fair! and i'm also pretty nervous. if you are in the vancouver area, please come by and say hello, i would love to meet you! i will be having some of each animal for sale, as well as some bears and some more hearts.

i have also been busy making my contribution to the free swag bags that will be handed out to the first 30 people through the doors. that pile that you see below are paper clips, each adorned with a button that is covered in various fabrics i use for my animals. some are japanese fabrics, others are not but they are all cute! they're a perfect way to keep all your bills in order, or to attach a photo to a letter you are mailing, etc. you get the idea.

okay, must go and sew some eyes onto a batch of hippos, please keep sunday may 3rd open to shop some handmade goodness!

Hi! I thought about you yesterday and wondered how you were. It's so funny, the internet...!

Cute Cute Cute. I find it hard to come up with good swag bag items sometimes.

I love the paperclips, so clever and cute! I'm doing Got Craft also, and it is my first craft fair too! I'm looking forward to seeing you there :)

Don't be nervous -- you'll do great! I've never done a craft fair, but your work ROCKS and people will love it. Good luck!

awesome swag. it's tough coming up with those and it seems those little things take just as much time and thought as the rest of the crafting. i just thought i'd let you know that it's only for 20 people this time.
see you there.
