Let's start with today.
While I was still lying in bed this morning, I checked my email on the ol' Blackberry and I found I had 12 new comments here at Gypsy in Jasper. At first I was like, "What the what?! I haven't even posted yet today." But then I realized why! The lovely and talented and absolutely hilarious Elycia featured me on her blog today. Queue happy dance! Like honest to god, I jumped out of bed, ran out of the bedroom and did a little jig where Ian couldn't hear/see me.
It was something a little like this, but without the candle stick or the splits:
Anyway, Elycia is like totally my favourite, so now you know why I woke up happy today. But that's not where the weekend happiness ends. You know the craft fair I've been talking about all week, well it finally happened and I managed to sell a dozen hair clips in just a few hours.
|(The fair was held in the arena because it was pouring rain outside. It was so cold in the building that I had to get Ian to bring me my vintage old man sweater and my alpaca scarf!)|
|It's so nice having a model. Ian had all of the old ladies stopping in for a chat and a gander. Isn't he handsome?|
The best part of the fair was seeing the kids picking out a hair clip and immediately clipping them in their hair. It's so much better than selling them online and not knowing who is receiving them. There was one girl, who couldn't have been older than three, who colour coordinated her hair clip to her jacket! Oh my goodness, she was adorable. She was wearing this super stylish light pink raincoat with white accents, so she chose a white hair clip with a pink button. LOVE IT! I wish I had a photo of her with the clip in her little blonde ringlets. I might hate kids, but this one was damn cute!
The other great thing about yesterday was that I managed to triple the size of my in-progress afghan. I'm so stoked. My goal is to finish it before June 23, so that I can sit on it while I watch Sam Roberts and Dan Mangan perform at Music in the Park.
I hope you-all had a happy dance worthy weekend as well. What did you get up to?
