Hurdle number one cleared. The Twilight Market was held last night and I sold lots of things.
What things, I hear you murmur?
There were the famous flannels and homemade soaps
and I got busy with a hot glue gun and made a basket full of seedpod people. At the last market there were lots of children roaming around clutching a couple of sticky coins, looking forsomething tiny and affordable to purchase. And of course most of the goods for sale at all the stalls cost several dollars and more. So these little gumnut babies were popular ... only five left!
I also sold some stuff made by my clever friend. Bags, shawls, and these gorgeous children's baking sets comprising an apron, rolling pin and cookie cutters.
I might extend the range and make a few gardening sets with a trowel and packet of seeds in the apron pockets.
I'm going with small photos these days so my sidebar doesn't disappear. Those of you also using elderly versions of Internet Explorer will know what I'm talking about.
In other news around here:
• Broadband (ADSL) is coming to my neck of the woods soon. Farewell ye olde dial-uppe internette. V.excited. (As Bridget Jones would say.)
• Son #1 got into the Steiner highschool we were hoping for. V.excited. That bribe at the interview obviously paid off. I mean, his natural charm shone through.
• The car needs a new muffler. We're breathing strange fumes and things are going blurry round the edges. Not good.
• Thank you for all your well wishes. I shall be absent again for a bit while I write papers and complete a small amount of paid work that trickled in. But I will return.
