Getting ready

I browsed through The Star’s newspaper today (11/11/2009). And came across the writeup on ParenThot’s Family Day. Read closer and I saw this…
Ok. So my name’s appeared in the newspaper today. Time for tension to kick in! Reality check. Have I done all that are needed to be done for this event? Let’s see….
Ethan has been very cooperative. He gets up in the morning and the first thing he does is to reproduce most of his origami and art ‘n’ craft works to be displayed there on the event day.
My boy, the busy crafter.
My ladybug factory.
People say ladybug brings good luck. I’ll be making hundreds of these (painstakingly handmade by me and me only :P) to be given away to visitors* to my booth (wish me luck!).
But that’s where my ‘work solo’ strategy ends as I can’t go through all these alone. The first thing I did when I received the invitation for the demo was to get help from this dude. Come to think of it, I did not give him a chance to say NO. Sorry Julie, can I ‘borrow’ him for a little while, please? Thank you so much Julie. You’re the BEST!
Thank goodness for him, all my technical woes are solved. I don’t think I KNOW I won’t be able to make it without his help.
