so worth the trip!
Apart from catching up with old vendor friends and scoring some amazing Christmas pressie buys, I had the privilege of attending a little letterpress workshop session by Mein - Elaine had actually brought along a real life breathing letterpress machine to MAAD! I've always been intrigued by the art of letterpress and how wonderful it was to have a glimpse into this mysterious world (ok mysterious at least to us this side of the globe) and actually have a go at it! Words cannot describe my excitement and thrill in finding someone so friendly and generous in sharing her experiences in letterpress. Thank you Elaine! You're a gem! :)
While my top priority this week is to finish the stack of way overdue custom orders (yikes! thank you for being so patient ladies!) , my trusty babysitter a.k.a. The Grandma is unable to help me with her usual hours this week so I foresee an interesting time ahead with a super-duper cranky teething bub and finally launching some new necklaces and rings in time for Christmas ! The original big plan was to surprise with a MAAD appearance in December cos I really miss the interaction and fun of meeting peeps and friends and to put some new packaging and booth ideas into action ... but... plans change and I'm off on a weekend beach retreat instead! hehe... please don't hate me... I will still make your online purchases sweeter as planned :)
December is traditionally a busy time for the family and this year is gonna be extra special cos it's Nathan's first Christmas with us! We have some grand plans on how to celebrate and can't wait! Hope you are looking forward to some special times ahead too!
