3 sleeps to go...

Well it's only three days till we leave for Perth. I am beyond excited and my head is swimming with day dreams about what I might get up to while I am there. I will of course be visiting every op-shop I know and hopefully stumble across a few new ones.  I am looking forward to pints with friends and cuddles with my family.

Before I leave I still have a huge day and night of sewing/photographing/wrapping/shipping a stack of orders. I am still confident that I will get all orders shipped, but this weekend I have achieved much less than I had hoped due to this lurgy that is hanging around our home.

I have been on instagram. I have been using it to snap photo's for ages but I am only just realising its full potential. Making new acquaintances and finding awesome talent. It is the perfect behaviour for laying on the couch feeling sorry for yourself - guaranteed to make you feel better.

I have other exciting news - I have just invested in my first DSLR. I am having it delivered to my mum's house, and hopefully it will be there by the time I get to town. I can't promise that my photo's will be instantly amazing, but I plan to spend the time I am away getting mighty friendly with my new piece of equipment...

I have just downed an evening coffee - that means it's time to get down to business and finish these dresses.

Have a fabulous evening.
