And if you'd like to meet me in person, of course I'll be at Craft2.0, this Saturday (July 2nd), 10am - 3pm at The Dowse Art Museum, 45 Laings Road, Lower Hutt.

Hopefully see you there!

As long as that pesky ash cloud stays away! Grrr!

Getting my craft on

It's less than two weeks til the next Craft2.0, on Saturday July 2nd. I'm busy preparing things for my stall, and hoping the wee aftershocks Christchurch is getting don't come at just the wrong time to stuff up the resining process!

Doing the trip up to Wellington for the day is always fun. We're usually the last to arrive with only a few minutes to spare and the market is over before we know it. Then it's off to the pub for a well earned drink before heading home. I love catching up with other sellers and customers, and the rush and excitement of the day keeps me coming back for more!

If you're a friend of Craft2.0 and you come along, you'll get an awesome bag filled with goodies, including a sweet treat and discount voucher from Freedom Creative (to be used on the day, or in my Felt shop during July). If you want to become a friend, you can here.

30 Before 30 - #9 Watch the Sunrise

I actually completed this nice 30 Before 30 task a few months ago when I was on holiday cruising around the Mediterranean. I got up early to watch the 6am sunrise over Western Italy (between Rome and Civitavecchia) on our second to last day at sea. It was lovely and peaceful, only a few other people up and about the cruise ship, and awesome to be able to complete this task in such an amazing place!

Eeek, only 5 tasks down, that means 25 to go and only 558 days to complete them (although a few are things which are in progress). The weeks are flying by, so I'd better get to it!

Oh yeah, feeling a little deflated after yesterday's quakes, but hopefully that feeling will be gone soon. Thanks for the tweets and messages making sure all was okay (again).
