Next Sunday, the 27th of May, I am doing a craft fair with Granny Would be Proud at Hillhead Bookclub in Glasgow. If anyone is in the area and free next Sunday I'd love to see your cute faces! There will be lots of other stalls too.
This is the first time I am doing this fair and I am really looking forward to it. I have been trying to work towards restocking with new products as for a lot of last year I took the same old stock to fairs. I have been having a clearout and really working hard to put together new stuff for the stall (hence the productivity lately ;-) ).
Normally when I do a fair I have an idea of things that I want to finish for it and leave it until a week before to get it all. Naturally I tend to get half of it done and even then thats with staying up until 2am the night before.
This time I decided to attempt to be organised and efficient and put together this list for each day before the fair:
It probably looks scary but I think I can manage it.
The list below is my standard whiteboard list. On this I put all the things I wanted to make at any given time. This doesn't necessarily mean before the fair but for the forseeable. Once I get down to about 2 or 3 items left on it I will scrub it all out and write another list. I find that making a list is the only way to get anything done around here. That and Netflix :-D.
Tomorrow I will be taking part in Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day for the first time. Coincidentally it will also be my 100th post! I'm not quite sure what I am giving away yet but I'll figure it out over the course of the day. So check back tomorrow for details and the chance to win something :-)
