I know a few people that have this desk from IKEA the pull out section is great for that bit extra space. I have my table top ironing board on it here. As well as a big pile of fabric, interfacing templates and I am even reading Rachel's blog at the same time!!! Multi task Queen :D

So far I seem to be coping almost too well with all the prep, that is until I get to the part that I've been putting off for ages and that is writing a Press Release!! Yikes. I have no idea what to write, even though I have scoured the Internet for tips and ideas......still not getting any inspiration :( Anyone out there got any experience of writing one?
I'm hoping to order some bits from Moo tomorrow, then there will be a mass production line to assemble my promo items. Don't worry I will be posting a pic of these so that you can see.
Oh and still looking for anyone that wants to join the Big Swap.

Maybe I will get round to organising my own swap after Easter something a little less complicated and fun? It was back to the day job today, Boo!!!! And it was eventful as ever......on the up side I did finish all of my samples at the weekend :D all that is left to do is my little additions to the bags and my paperwork (the less creative bit, but just as important).

Monday morning, enjoyed a lie in with a cup of tea. C went to the bank and was due at the doctors shortly after. I jumped in the shower and then dried my hair. I was then called by what I thought was Chris but it wasn't, it was the nurse from the surgery calling from his phone. He'd passed out and they were that concerned they'd called an ambulance. I rushed to the doctors and went in the ambulance. We spent all day in the hospital waiting for various tests and xrays to be done. And after words like, really slow arresting heart rate, pace maker and more tests we were allowed to take him home.
He is resting and not stressing (like he normally does) and has to go back for some more tests next week. Just pleased that he's home and OK. I have to admit I have pampered him profusely today, mainly out of sheer relief. Its amazing how you react in a crisis, I think I was running totally on adrenalin yesterday.......40 seconds and I was in the car and on my way.
He's apologised about 100 times that he took a day of my plan away.....as if I was even bothered about that. Sometimes I don't think he realises how important he is to me!!!
Very!! I'm off for a cuddle :D

Surprisingly there were a lot of things completed (from the previous list) which could be crossed off. I then used the 'huge list' to write a To Do list in my note book, I carry this everywhere with me which is a good reminder of what is next. There was a feeling of calm once I realised that 'THE' list was not actually as bad as I had been winding myself up to thinking it was.
There are still some samples to complete but I am over a third of the way there. Initial ideas for all my literature is complete just need to get onto Moo.com and get it ordered. Struggling to write a press release at the moment so if anyone has any tips or a good website I can look at I'd really appreciate it. I booked my hotel for the days of the trade fair last night, its a lovely chain of hotels and they have Wi-fi so I'll be set. All the display stuff Chris is taking care of.....he has all the details so I'm excited to see what he comes up with (obviously guided in the right (my) direction by me!!) :D
I think that just about covers everything.....so feeling calm and organised I'm off to tackle the next item on my list.

Nothing better than sitting with a cup of tea, the cat on my lap and my sewing tray beside me. Ahhhh the perfect way to end another stressful day (Oh sewing how I love thee!!) :D
