This is my last week before I start selling my bags and stuff at the VivoCity Christmas baazar. Over the weekend, I started packing and prize tagging. I wanted to start early because this is the part which I dread the most. Amazingly I do not have that many items made despite starting making my stock pretty early this year. Oh yes, I remember now. I procrastinated a lot and did not go into production mode until sometime in November.
This week I will take it easy and try to adjust my sleeping pattern. The kids and I have been living a crazy lifestyle. We sleep at 3 or 4am and wake up after noon. Then we behave like zombies until it's night and we spring to life again. I'm starting to feel a little sick - a small cough, a sorethroat, sneezing fits, the kind of stuff you don't want to have when you need to be out 12hours or so for 9 days.
I have made a gift stocking. It's large. I think I could put my head in. It's going to be my Christmas decoration. It is also for sale. I hope someone buys it because it's no use to me after Christmas. I bought the fabric from Spotlight. The panels came in the shape of a stocking. How convenient! I added a few embroidery details, some wadding and sewed it up. I dug up a Santa's hat which is for my girl. She wore it last year. I hope her head hasn't grown bigger.
I haven't thought about how I'll spend my time at VivoCity during the hours when there aren't any customers. I bought a box of cereals and that's about it. What was I thinking? I should get some novels and honestly, I don't want to do anything that requires a lot of effort. On the other hand, I don't want to find myself nodding off.
I'm starting to feel I'm too old to be doing this craft market thing. It's tiring and not that rewarding. 9 days is a long time to be out everyday for 12 hours. Anyway, I hope it stops raining soon. It's been raining every single day in Singapore since November. Enough already.
I hope to make one last bag by Friday. One with polka dots!
