Sunday is off to a flying start!

Well, this morning I woke when hubby got out of bed. I was in the middle of a long and very vivid dream at the time, (and yes I do remember my dreams).
I rolled over and looked at the clock, it said 6.18am. I panicked and jumped out of bed and started rushing around. Then it suddenly dawned on me that my alarm had not gone off because it was Sunday NOT Monday and I had turned it off.
So, I'll get back into bed and check my emails.

Yesterday evening hubby took me to a local beach and we went to the little pub and had dinner. Sat outside in the last of the day's sunshine and watched the comings and goings. It was lovely.

So next Saturday I will be at the Ohau Market and I needed to make some more lavender bags and cards to sell. Above are some of the finished cards ready to package.  

Then I decided to make some coffee card wallets. I thought they might look a little different, I've never made them to sell before. What do you think? I use one all the time, they are great for your eftpos/credit cards too.

I haven't done a market for just over twelve months, I've missed them. I think I'll take some copies of my novel along too, may be I might sell one or two!

I got a lovely comment from Nancy on the last post. She has made a Snippet Roll and invited me over to see it. Of course it was gorgeous, but I knew it would be! If you want to visit Nancy's blog just click on the link. I have to say it was lovely of Nancy to credit where she got the idea, I really appreciate it. Snippet Rolls are infiltrating the world, but not many people credit it back to it's source. I'm guessing the wee SR's are a long way from home now.

Well, I really must get up now. Oh and if you were wondering what the dream was about - well I was living with a very elderly and forgetful aunt in a huge two story rambling house and I remembered that she had turned the bath on upstairs over an hour ago, and I was running to turn the water off. When I got to the bottom of the stairs there was water dripping from the ceiling and spilling down the stairway! The top floor was awash. And then I woke up. :)
What does it mean I wonder?

Enjoy your weekend!

You had a lovely end to Valentines Day Carole!
You've been busy making lots of pretties to take to market - They will all be gone in a flash.

What a bitter sweet moment to wake with a panic and the lay back and enjoy the error. Love the little wallets, so very cute indeed. Have a great day off my friend

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I appreciate your leaving a comment. so I jumped over here to view yours. Love the little wallets, you do nice work, I'll bet they all sell out.
Might your dream indicate you are feeling overwhelmed?

Hope it wasn't a Fifty Shades of Grey dream Carole!!!!
Love your cards and your coffee card holders are just adorable. Enjoy the rest of your day.

The little wallets are perfect! Cards, too. Hope they are very popular at the market- they should be. They'd make a great gift for people to pick up and have on hand. I rarely remember dreams, so analysis is not my strong suit! Thank you for sending visitors over to my blog. I'm working on two more of your Snippet Rolls- they are such fun!

Carole, I love your wallets! Will you be listing any on etsy?

Love all you are making! And, yes, definitely take your books along to sell! Great idea! Glad you had a lovely weekend and Valentine's Day. I always remember my dreams, too. It's a learned skill.... one I often hate. But I think it means your life is overflowing right now.... what is it overflowing with?
