the huge scruffy melange of humanity

Some days you can really feel the fire – then other days, you are like a squished snail or a washed-up jellyfish and you wonder where the fiery-you with the self-belief and the staunch intent went…but it’s all in there…different bits surface on different days…the trick is to not pay either state too much mind….it’s all just the huge scruffy melange of humanity inside you. everything nothing

Craft Country this Saturday! Yeeeeeha!

This weekend I’m having two blissful kid-free nights in Featherston at my friend Emma McCleary’s house. It’s my little treat before the school holidays and a whole lot of intensive parenting begin! Emma is a great host and we always have a good time.

Emma co-runs the Craft Country Fair in Greytown (this Saturday, 10-3,Town Hall)  and both she and I are having stalls there on Saturday. There will be lots of great sellers, who make beautiful, handmade art and craft. I know the selection of sellers is very particular, so the items available will be the most original and interesting…

You can read all about the fair on their website HERE.

Emma did a great post about the fair HERE.

Emma made cool montages on flickr of all the sellers. Mine is HERE. Emma’s is HERE. All the other sellers are over there on flickr, too – have a look around!

If you are in the Wairarapa, do come! Or come over from Wellington and have a day out – there are lots of fabulous shops and cafes in Greytown, Carterton and Martinborough, too. Plenty to make it a great day trip.

I’m selling softies, collaged cards, brooches, bunting and……my book – which is not strictly handmade, but Emma said I could!

Doe-see-doe, and swing your partner! Yeehaa!
