the Handmade Market come down . . .

Greetings all,
Thanks for all the best wishes for the Saturday Handmade Market, you're all so sweet, especially to follow up with emails & asking if i was in a post-market-coma as no blog post yet.  Yes, tired but truth is, i leant my camera memory stick to Tania McCartney (who is responsible for these images which i stole from the Handmade blog) & i haven't downloaded my own yet!!  We like to share at Handmade!! 
Here is a quick whip around from the day, starting with my smaller-than-usual-cosy-managable stall, Danielle Kathleen, Little Slave, Retro Mummy & SchmooksI went into this market remarkably calm & with my heavy work load of late (Shop Handmade, Posie on line, Edna&AliceMay wholesale & all those children of mine) i decided to be more craft enabler with fabric, buttons, badges & cards.  Gosh it lifted the pressure, i thoroughly enjoyed the day, even went to the bathroom TWICE & took my middle daughter who came home with her 3rd Allana C giraffe & enjoyed cupcakes, pop corn, chatting to designers . . . it was glorious weather & with a lighter Winter crowd than the regular 10 000 market goers, it was fabulous & another success!!

Thanks again for all those who came along, sent well wishes, are supplying Shop Handmade, working on a submissions for Handmade Living & just all round loving supporters of the Handmade movement.  I'm having a ball & will be dragged kicking & screaming from Canberra at the end of the year.  My husband is teasing me about coming back to Canberra soon, i just kind of want to skip the leaving bit!! 
If you missed the Market - come to the Shop, it's busier than ever, over 100 designers in Shop & new stock arriving daily!!
Want some gorgeous knitting needles & craft goodies, don't miss the G I V E A W A Y in the last post.  Winner to be announced on Thursday.  Love Posie
