The Excitement is Building !

This will be my last post for the fore seeable future, may be a couple of weeks any way, although one never knows how the telcos work, they may work miracles with me !


We settle our house in Laidley tomorrow and will move in gradually over a week or so. It was going to be two weeks but Mr bubba informs me today that he may be almost finished come the end of Saturday! I'll have to ring him from the Handmade Expo on Saturday to find out where my bed is ! Dont you love the unknown..not! !





I have been madly stocking up on heat packs and today out of the blue I had an itching to make these..

Half a dozen "say no to plastic bags " totes to add to the collection and to take on Saturday to the Handmade Expo. Thay are smallish to medium size, just right for all the little purchases at the market. They are priced at $12. Like there was no packing to do at all !

On top of settlement time being changed, a contract on our house sale falling over, Mr bubba being away with work for three days next week, someone whinging and complaining about our corflute signs on posts advertising the Handmade Expo, yes on top of all that, I woke this morning with a really sore lower back ! Must have been
all of the boxes I moved into the garage yesterday, of course they were all the book boxes packed by not me in boxes way too big for books!

Oh and I forgot to mention the haircut you have when the hairdresser doesn't listen to a word you say about how you want it because she knows best! ( even though she has been doing it for a year or more) Funny how small things can put you over the edge isn't it ?

Anyhoo! These things are all sent to try us and other than this I cant tell you how excited I am about the Handmade Expo on Saturday and us celebrating our first birthday of the market. Did I mention free cupcakes to the first 500 through the gate ? Looking forward to everything that comes with over 100 stalls of lovliness, looking forward to meeting Jay from Finki and her mum and sister, looking forward to having my new sewing helper come to help out too, come and meet Kelly. Also looking forward to buying some delicious lamb from Farmer Dave.

See you on Saturday everyone! 8 am - 2 pm, Ipswich Turf Club Brisbane Rd, Bundamba.

All the best with the move! And a very happy first birthday to the Handmade Expo! Hip hip hooray for handmade! I hope to visit one day. Sadly I work most Saturdays these days. Very sucky!

Everything happens at once, doesn't it? It's good you found a sewing helper though.

Wow you are one busy lady!!! I will be bringing my tribe of little fabs with me on Saturday so will finally get to meet you, prob not be able to talk much as you will be so busy!! and my children will be dragging me by hair at what they want to look at!! Would love to be trading but Mr Fab is away this weekend, I nearly was contacting you last minute but did not turn out the way I wanted it. So excited for you that you have had to get some help to make!! especially with Christmas coming, I am hoping to convince my mum into making some fab bags too. well look forward to seeing you sat. deb

OMG I can't believe you have a huge market right in the middle of moving! I wish I was going to be there for one of those 500 cupcakes. Have a great weekend (and say hi to Jay for me).

Kelly said...

Lovely bags Miriam!

I'm also very excited about Saturday!

Good luck with your settlement and packing.

Don't you just hate it when everything happens at once. Why is it that it happens like that. I know one thing is for sure and that is that the person complaining about your signs is a whole lot less busy than you are!! Hope all goes really well with your move and your Birthday celebrations and I hope Mr Bubba can find 20mins to give you a lovely relaxing massage on your back.

Hey sweetie, don't hold back tell us what you really think. Blogs are cheaper than therapy. See you Saturday.

Hey Miriam! Wow ... sounds like you've got even more dramas happening at your place than we do - ah, life ... who needs soapies! Tee! Hee! Hee! Glad you're excited about moving, sad for you that your sale fell through and hope your back recovers soon - hope you're putting one of your wonderful hotpacks on whenever you're sitting or laying in one spot for a while - I can attest to how good they are! :0) Looking forward to visiting your new abode once you're all settled and hope you enjoy your birthday celebrations. We're off to Ravensbourne Chalets to celebrate my beloved's 40th this weekend - looking foward to it! Bear Hugs! KRIS

Wow, not sure how you handle all that...moving, market organising, sewing with a bit of itching for new bags...Hope you recover from your hairdresser miscommunication!;)
