Nine Days.

Till Handmade Parade and do you think I'm ready? Not so much. There are piles of fabric, thread, paper, buttons everywhere. I work well under pressure and the pressure is on. I have notebooks, picture frames, keepsake boxes, Mothers Day brooches, little lovelies dolls and so much more to finish. Not to mention make some homemade munchies and spiffy up the backyard...
In. Nine. Days.

Do I have a prayer?

Well I'm glad I'm not the only one who isn't prepared... I've got a lot to do before next Saturday.

And thanks for the reminder about the munchies!

Always doing things just alike aren't we. I think we will be just fine at about 11 a.m. on May 5.

Can't wait to meet you all and Claire, it's going to be amazing. Your house (from what I could see from the remodel pics) is going to be in great shape! Don't know what your backyard looks like, but I'm sure it'll be beautiful! YAY, HP!

Hey, Chick, I saved the green and red pitchers for you. I need your address to mail them to you. I only had 50 cents each on them so we can just swap if you want. Email me to talk about it -ok?

I'm not ready either :( I have been working sooo hard... and if they puppy would potty train a little better... I'd get a lot more done... instead of puppy hunting all the time! Everyone wear your best duds and do your hair... cause I'm taking a ton of pics this weekend!
