So here goes...

Hello there everyone! It's nearly midnight, I'm about to go to sleep and I'm already nervous because I know this post won't have any pictures, but I felt the need to write it anyway.

Tomorrow is a weirdly important day for me. Paisley and Rae, my floundering craft business is officially launching with my first ever stall. It feels quite appropriate that it should be over the Jubilee weekend as I've been feeling so patriotic recently.

It will be the first time anyone other than my family have seen the things of been making, the first time I will learn if they are actually any good or not. It will also be the first time I will get an idea of whether or not I could realistically do something crafty for a living; I'm not kidding myself that I will ever be able to make and sell enough to support a family, but I would love to have a shop, selling my own work and that of other crafts people, I could have coffee and cake mornings, children's craft parties and run special needs craft courses like the ones I used to work in while I was at uni. Guest tutors could come in to run specialist classes, and I might even open a little coffee shop next door, with bacon and brie sandwiches and brownies and tea in a teapot.

Maybe it's all just a pipe dream. I guess I'll wait and see....
