I'm part of the steering group this year and helping to coordinate the event over at the studios, plus getting my own work done. It's a bit manic for me at the moment and the 3 weeks off ill didn't help.
This Sunday just gone I helped with setting up the preview for work that's part of the postcard auction. Artists taking part submit a piece of work and it's sold as part of an auction to benefit next years Open Studios.
The whole steering group worked hard and we got it all done in less time than I had expected. Why can't teamwork always be that good?
I'm also taking part in and helping to organize a craft fair next weekend as part of The Craft Hub.
An amazing amount of work has gone into pulling it off and I'm very proud to be part of this organizing team together with Pippa, Lucy and Hannah and how we've worked together to make it happen and give local crafters and small businesses the opportunity to showcase and sell their work.
Somewhere I'm hoping to have to to eat and sleep as well, which would be FABulous.
