on closer inspection.....

Pack the man-car
Get the supervisor's OK and head of to Melbourne


to an empty shell


Fill it was stuff from the man-car


fiddle and tweak until the driver of the man-car almost passes out with boredom
and then come home, upload the photos and think about the things you will move / change early in the morning before the real life visitors arrive!

  7. I AM SO EXCITED!!!

    I'm terribly worried that you will have sold out of Bot kits before I get there on Saturday. Hell, I'm worried I'll turn up Saturday morning and the whole Show will have sold out of everything!

  10. I wish I could convey to you just how desperately I wish I was in Melbourne this weekend.

    Instead I'm surrounded by wailing children, a trashed house and strict instructions to not drive, sit, lift or live. GODDAMNIT.

  11. Heehee, was that the man there with you? You didn't add his help in! Then you could have got away with anything....god, those frames look great, gloss paint, right?

  12. Well it already looks fabuloso, but I am a tweaker 'til the cows come home and the man car driver really does pass out - so I get it. Have a grand show Mrs.

  38. Jod, it looks like you've snapped your fingers and unloaded a little bit of home right there in your booth. Absolutely fab!!
    Remember, breathing is good, caffeine is better and sleep perchance to dream is... well hopefully a realistic option tonight!

  42. I would kill to be there. Murder. I'd commit murder to be there. Of course, I'd blame it on temporary insanity. Clearly, I'd be insane the moment I saw all of your adorable stuff.


    PS-Let this be my confession.

    p.s. feeling very stupid as I thought it was happening on the weekend just gone. Having realised it's on the coming weekend I thought maybe I could book a flight after all but wouldn't you know it, the stoopid ash cloud is messing about with the planes again - I was so close to getting there too!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Jodie it's looking FAN-flipping-TASTIC!

    You are amazing and you will have an amazing time - and so will anyone who comes along to see you - so WHY CAN'T I COME TOO?????????

    I'm sooooooo jealous of everyone down-under who is getting to come over to play!

  47. Your booth looks incredible!!! I wish I could come and have a long browse, but alas, I live in the wrong city. Hope you have an awesome few days at the show. I'm looking forward to hearing all about it once you return.

  48. Melbourne? In Australia? As much as I would LOVE to come and visit -- and buy -- and gab -- and MAKE -- I'm sitting in Seattle, Washington, US of A and not quite capable of hopping on over.
    BUT, I'm seriously in lust with your wonderous goodies.
    May there be many like me there!!!

  52. Oh, Jodi, I'm so excited and I won't even be there!

    I've been to dozens of craft shows and I've just realised why this one (that I'm not attending) is special - I've had a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into all those wonderful (and some not so wonderful) stalls! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
