Me and my Markets...

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Some of you may have seen that I haven't been around at too many of the markets lately, or maybe you haven't noticed — well if you didn't, I have been taking a bit of a back seat from all the markets that I do. It was getting a little bit crazy with a market nearly every weekend!

I have decided that I will endeavour to do Kraftbomb each month and scatter into the mix the occasional other market when I can, and to keep things interesting of course! Kraftbomb has always been a great market for me and it works well with finding sitters to look after my Gracie.

Those of you that know me, know I'm a one parent wonder, so I have been using all my baby sitting time to work at markets and am having little (if any) time to myself. I think I just need to look after myself a little better and give me a bit of 'me' time.

With the Auckland Craft Collective and at the moment, putting in 9 hour days into the Auckland Art & Craft Fair plus working as a freelance Graphic Designer by day and being Mum to Gracie, I need to find a way that I can still work on Bam Bam Creative — as this is my gig, and I do absolutely love what I do, and I want to keep loving it — so the markets had to give a little!

Anyway, enough about that, I just wanted to let you know what was happening round my place — this weekend I'm going to be at Mary's Market in Freemans Bay, so take the time to come along as it would be great to see you (details in the side bar).

Chat soon lovelies xx

Just for some eye candy from around Grey Lynn...

So you are human! :-D
I'm glad you've decided to take some quality time - if anyone deserves it - it's you!

Wow! Busy busy. Good on you for looking after you - so important. I reckon the best thing you can do in business is keep it fun. Good on ya for putting so much in.
