This morning i was up really early and decided i'd finish my price labels and pack everything up. I did actually semi do this the other day, but had a rethink and so doing again.
I'll move back to the packing in a min!
The post arrived ever so early and by that time i'd got myself in a bad mood because it just seems like the clock is ticking too fast with too much to get done.
It's my son Nialls birthday on Monday (he will be 12)and loads of cards arrived for him, but tucked in with them was one for me. Just knew it was a card but couldn't think what for.
Anyway, it's from Debbie of Tiny Treasures and it really cheered me up on an otherwise dark, rainy, and miserable day! Made me laugh too.
Here it is, the little message on the envelope and the inside too.
Thank you Debbie, i love it and will take it to the show with me for my table.
Here's a pic of my room and my price tagging going on. Having to sew them all on to almost everything.
Debbie made the tags for me from her punching machine and i've stained them with ink.
I'm going by train to the show and so have to pack really well to fit it all in two big boxes i'll put on wheels (fishing trolley and fishing boxes really).
Ive also been cutting tubes this for the delicate items, not only for me to travel but also for customers to take items home safe without any breakages.
Ive got so many items i need to protect in both ways as above, and so for the smaller items I'm using business card boxes, plus lots of other suitable containers. But because of only being able to have the two boxes i also have to pack everything into these just to get there.
I dont just want to chuck items in bags and so have also had to make purpose fitting boxes for all the tables. But i do have bags to, lol.
This eveing i have to make a few more display holders and think up something for displaying potion that tip over just looking at them... im sure ill think of something.
Im having stained and dirty covers for my table and lots of wood and rustic display stands. Ive made some little steps for small items too.
This name banner i need to sew to the front of my table when i get to the show, Must not forget the needle and thread, lol. It's not wonderful but running on a budget of nothing at the moment and ran out of brown paint so it had to be black.
Probably will not do another post now until next week.
Thank you to everyone that has offerd help, sent me parcels of materials and items to add to my work, for all the good wishes, offers to help me at the show when it gets busy (hopefully), the advice on just about everything and wonderful surprises ive had along the way. I'd have been really stuck without all this help and can't thank you enough.
Also thank you to my blog readers and the encouragment you always give. This really means a lot to me.
Thank you also for putting up with my bad grammar, all my typos and spelling mistakes. I laugh sometimes when i go back and look at certain posts. Debbie always tells me off for this but i still dont do the spell checks and proof reads, lol. Easily distracted im afraid!
Promise i will take lots of photos when i set the table up at the show, and lots of close ups too. I just dont have time to clear my room and set a temporary display up to see how it all works. Its all in my head lol.
Once back next week i'll post lots of pictures.
