Busy busy busy ...

Hello - sorry it's been a long time since you've heard from me, but there's so much going on in my world at the moment, unfortunately keeping the blog up to date got pushed down the priority list.

Firstly, the knee is healing quite well - I'm getting around without the crutches now, but I'm still limping, and the knee is still very weak, but I'm working on strengthening it and the physio I started a couple of weeks ago seems to be working very well.

And, the main source of my busy-ness of late has been preparation for the Warrandyte Market - yes, I've got my first ever market stall lined up for this Saturday morning. Sharing a site with my mother-in-law. I've been busy sorting all my cards into themes, and working out how best to present them, preparing little display boards to show off a select few and buying black velvet to cover the tables - you get the idea. Lots of time-consuming running around. I've had the trestle table out today for a practice run setting it all up and laying it out - up to now, it's just all been ideas in my head - and it looked pretty good. Just a couple of finishing touches to one of the display boards, make a quick sign, and maybe bang out a few more cards tomorrow night, and then I think I'm ready.

Can't have too late a night though ... need to be down at the market by about 6.30am to start setting everything up, as the market officially opens at 8.00am - ouch!

Anyway, I'm certainly not planning on retiring on my profits from Saturday, but I will walk away very pleased if I sell even one thing :D

Wish me luck!

Talk to you soon,

Good luck Ness! Your work is amazing. I am sure you will do well.

I sure hope you do MUCH better than selling just one card, Ness. You are such a good card maker you are bound to sell more. Have a great day and I'm glad to hear your knee is getting better :)
