can't slow my brain down enough to write a proper coherent post so here are some points for ya:
• tomorrow is the big day, the first of three i'll be selling my wares at the magnolia square tiny & small event at brighton town hall. in case you can't read the miniscule type above, the market runs from noon until 9pm thursday, 10am until 5pm friday and 10am until 4pm saturday. there are lots of lovely wares there besides mine (you can check out the full list of vendors here) and some of the best damn cupcakes i've ever tasted (i highly recommend the chocolate mud and the carrot cake ones) so come on over for a browse.
• onegirl designwrks was featured on the LMNOP blog today! in case you haven't heard of it, LMNOP is a free quarterly pdf magazine aimed at stylish parents and kids. the photography is always stunning and the products shown are always beyond gorgeous so i'm quite, quite pleased to be featured on their blog. you check out the post on me here.
• for some crazy reason i decided to design a new product just days before a big market. crazy? yes. yes, i am. introducing, the new baby oobees...
complete with their own reversible quilt and wee pillow, all cozy in a coordinating drawstring pouch. these are crazy fun to make and, at about 17cm tall (7") are also the smallest softie i've ever attempted. i was only able to make five sets for the market but i will be making more for the esty shop update next month. i'm considering offering this set as a pattern as well, it would be a great beginner project and a cute gift, i think.
• and one more pic, here are the special edition winter oobees all decked out in their patchwork scarves...
i love them. only five of these cuties available too but i might make more around christmas for the north american winter.
okay that's it for me tonight - wish me luck getting all the last minute details finished, like writing notes about mae for the nanny (oh yes, in case anyone was wondering how i solved my child care dilemma, i ended up hiring a great nanny that a friend recommended for the next couple of days. she is lovely and mae digs her so i'm feeling good about it), setting up my stall tomorrow and selling lots of goods at the market!!
