My lucky day!

While on my lovely morning walk around Sydney park this morning, i noticed that the clover flowers were out! So for some reason I sat down beside a patch and started looking for a four leaf clover after a few seconds I found my first one! Yey - I still have the eye for finding them.
However I not only found one, within a few minutes I had found three...Must be my lucky day!
I have stuck them into my creative journal and saved this date!...Wonder what luck it will bring!

The run down of the craft show …from the sheep lady!

After 5 days of being dressed in hand stitched sheep pants, yes with a tail! For the launch of Nibbles…I am slowly getting back to normal - I no longer am getting my tail pulled and have lost the extra wooliness around my bottom half :o) (it was all totally worth it! - and really I loved it! :o)

How do I sum the show up in just a few words? Wow! Fantastic! Great exposure, Exhausting! It was my first big craft show – so the support and feedback was mind bogglingly awesome! I met some fantastic inspiring crafters and designers.

I have to thank everyone who helped/supported me through this journey also my helpers over the 5 days; Scottie, Bianca, Brya and Jess – I defiantly could not have been running my workshops and sharing the smile upstairs at the stand at the same time. Your helping hands and happy faces were so appreciated! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Here are a few snap shots of the stand

The stitches and craft show team did an amasing job too! Every morning a fashion parade for the incubator section was on, I made the most of one of the models – Kelly, who volunteered to dress in the latest fashion like me - sheep and pig pants! She even did the little bottom wiggle, it was fantastic and defiantly got the attention deserved - got the crowd giggling and came up stairs for more! :o)

I made a video, but here are a few snap shots in the mean time!
It was my first time running workshops, so I decided to jump right in the deep end and do one each day! so much fun they were too, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and even signed my giant cow card at the end with such lovely feedback. One little girl decided she wanted to keep Henry the horse and write a story about him! It was so nice seeing peoples faces light up with excitement once they had created there final pieces :o)
I did not get loads of pics , but met some lovely people in the incubator area. Here are a few pics of surrounding stands.
My lovely neighbors Michelle of Shelbyville and Tara of Dudley Redhead, opposite the lovely Pauline and her husband Dave of Funky Friends Factory (thats not dave btw :o)
Claire of Craft Schmaft – with cute owls and monsters made out of socks, it was also nice to put a face to the name behind Dear Fii (Fiona) and Justine of Mix Tape zine. Yum, those ice cream's looked delicious!

So that just about wraps it up. But before I sign off I wanted to share with you what I treated myself with.
An Ezy Carve Rubber Printing Block and some stamps from Dudley Redhead – I have not carved into it yet, I'm still deciding on a design…. and... I could not resist - look it’s Mia the cutest little Wonky from Juicy Roo! She is so me!:o)

So that is me...over and out :o) x x
