Preparations, Love and a special Birthday!

As seems to be the way of late, my poor blog has been unkempt as I wade through what seems to be a fabric bomb that has exploded in my workroom!!
My prep for the next two, that's right TWO almost back-to-back markets, has been smooth so far. I actually have a handle on them.
Now I know what I am in for, I feel relaxed, and all I have to do is a little bit of printing and some clay work and I am done, ready to go.
I have a small headache kit prepared too...just in case after the last episode.
...even my stall layout is sorted!

I found this gorgeous pic of Jane from Life On Planet Baby blog fame, perusing my Marley & Lockyer stall at the last Boutique Markets in Hobart.
I adore this shot that market owner, Rachael took.
A wonderful snippet of the day.

 So, first up I will be here, the Boutique Markets in the lovely Hobart and then,
12 days later at Niche-All Wrapped Up, for their wonderful Christmas market in our home city of creating covers, clay tags, jewelry as well as some wonderful, exclusive Christmas pieces has been my main priority at the moment.

On another note, my dear Dad, who is here with us from N.S.W, turned 71 today!!!!
Halloween is always special to us, not for the normal celebrations, but because it my Dad's day.
It has been wonderful having him here and I got to spend LOADS of time with him today, just Dad and I.....I loved it.

Here he is with me on our Wedding day.
I adore this shot.
Love you Dad xxx
