Phew! What a wonderful whirl wind…
Thought we would pop in to share our very first ever real-world public appearance at the Mt Barker Waldorf School Spring Fair with you:
The days before were a flurry of bunting making and seed bag scenting ….
… then the day was upon us. Oh the hefting, packing, list-checking and silly giggling! There was slight hiccup with stall location – seems a whole bunch of us were ‘re-located’ to a different area away from the main craft stalls, resulting in a bit of confusion and jostling for a good spot. Still, we were soon setting up our wares, and marvelling at the way it all came together in the flap of a tablecloth…
Our newsletter sign up form and postcards (these were such a big hit we will have them available in the shop soon!)
More of our Snuggly Seed Bags making their debut.
Megan feeling pretty chuffed (although unsure just where to put her hands for a natural looking pose, and so ending up looking rather robotic)…
… and Ali looking equally chuffed (and far more comfortable).
While it was just a little stall at a fair, the day meant so much more to us both. It was the culmination of almost two years of scheming, dreaming, and planning, of taking a little idea and a wonderful friendship, and nurturing both into something fun and exciting and rewarding. Through the pregnancies, nappies, sleep deprivation, tears, laughs, mistakes and oh so many cups of tea, we have grown our little creative baby into something we are really proud of. We dared to take it from our sewing rooms to the world at large to share it with you all, and that feels really good. Hooray!
Megan & Ali
