This was my last market for the year, and although i have some custom orders to fullfill, I am going to use the time over the Christmas + new year break to regroup.
I have just found out, that Beth's carer can no longer care for her. While that's only for a short time each week, I have no other support to rely on. We all have to work out our limits, and capabilites, and something sometimes needs to give. Plus, she has just gotten over another illness requiring more anti-biotics. I'm a firm believer, that things happen for a reason. Balancing... weaknesses with strengths. My weakness is i am never very fast at getting things done...my strength is that i don't give up easily. Having a perfectionist streak is both a weakness and a strength.
I can't say anything about this handmade, micro business has been easy this year. Juggling family life, with everything else.
well. you. know.
So, please let me share some pics from my last market for 2010...
My lovely friend Gail, made these bunting cards....aren't they sweet?
Thanks needs to go to these wonderful people, without whose support I would be poorer indeed...
My friend Belinda, who came along to give me a loo break, but was beaten by Miriam from Nara Design, (my favourite children's wear designer!) who came to 'rescue me' from her own stall upstairs, and Karen from Karen Wagner Garden Design who came by to say hello.
The encouragement, and continuing friendship from these ladies, as well as Rosie from Notions, Narelle, from Ruby Victoria Letterpress, and Tamsin, from the Flatpack Bakers, makes this handmade life worthwhile.
