So today is your last chance to get 15% OFF any item in my Etsy store! You can find the coupon codes at the top right hand side of Gem Fatale's style blog and in this article on Jazzpad's blog. Happy shopping! Just in time for pay day.
Today I have the day off work and I have a lot to cram in. On Saturday I have to get up at 5am and hope my taxi turns up to take me to the station as I'm off to London at the crack of dawn to queue up outside Liberty alongside hundreds of other designer/makers to pitch my work to a panel in the hope they will want to stock it. I'm going through waves of fear and panic and brief waves of shrugging it off and not being too bothered. I think I'll feel very sick tomorrow night and won't be able to sleep!
It's a very slim chance that they will want to stock it but it's meant to be a positive experience so if anything I'm hoping to meet some interesting makers in the queue and get some good feedback that can help me develop my work further. You only get 3 minutes to make your pitch which worries me as it makes me think of old university presentations (which obviously went on a lot longer) but I was TERRIBLE at those as I always put my work down so it'll be quite a test to big myself up a bit.
Anyway, I'm off now to finish off a few pieces and practise my pitch to the wall! Cross all your fingers and toes for me!
