I'm sure everyone has those weeks where you feel like as soon as you finish one task, you have to quickly move onto the next task, knowing that there are even more tasks on the "things to do" list as soon as you finish that one... that was my week last week. Many of my preparations were for a joint effort between Anja and I for an "at home party" featuring handmade items made with American patchwork fabric. What I really like about doing a "show" in a home is that the atmosphere seems to be more personal, friendly, and cozy than a public event... you get more of a chance to really have a relaxed kind of interaction with people. Anja had organized a variety of other artists to participate in the evening and delectable cookies and sweets with a cup of hot tea or coffee was enough to bring everyone into the holiday mood.
I just thought I would share a few photos from our "event" before this week starts to pick up. With the list that is on my desk right now, I have the feeling that I might have two consecutive weeks of pure busyness... but isn't is always that way this time of year?
So are you pretty relaxed this time of year or is your list of "things to do" as long as a childs Christmas wish list?
