I feel like I've been off the map for the past couple of weeks. Lots of things have been happening, most importantly my boys 5th birthday this weekend. we had a great party at Briarlands Farm, just next to Blairdrummond Safari Park - a great place to take your kids during the impending summer holidays.
Work wise has been a bit odd, I'm starting to find more time to make things for myself as my shop orders are finally calming down. I've discovered I have been putting away lots of half finished items that need labels/ faces etc sewn on, so I have I bit more personal stock than I thought.
I have also been working on a small Baboo Book with all the items I have on my web page listed like a mini catalogue. Last year when visiting family in London it became apparent that the catalogue was not just for us country dwellers. I like the idea of having something lying about coffee tables that you can flick through whilst having a cup of tea. It's also very portable, not everyone has a lap top...
Unfortunately just as I was printing off copy no. 7 my printer decided to go on the blink (I get very angry when technology doesn't co-operate with me). However printing and cutting each page myself is a luxury and totally cost prohibitive so I must find a printer who would be happy to run off a few to get me started - a good lesson in not having to do everything myself.
I have four spare little Baboo Books, if you would like one drop me your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org. The first four e-mails will receive one. Don't get too excited - its my first attempt at publishing so no doubt the graphics/ spelling/ quality leaves a lot to be desired so any feedback will be gratefully received.
Hope the sun is still shining where you are!
PS I have taken a last minute stall at the Kippen Street Fayre on Saturday 13th June 2009, 10am-4pm. Hope to see you there.
