So 3 days to go until showtime and today, at last, I got around to working out how to display all my cards on my fabulous printed boards. I basically took over any remaining space in the house to work out all the fixing and spacing.
I started with Christmas and straight away realised that the cards would have to use the red envelope as a frame, as the blue was just being lost in the background.
I had always intended to peg them on red and white spotty ribbon to keep with the dots and spots feel.
The postcards had to go on two boards so it was tricky to make sure once the boards are hung that they all line up with each other and I have no idea how tall the shell scheme is, so have allowed plenty of blank space at the bottom of the boards so cards are not hidden!
The actual greetings cards will be fixed once we get there as there are too many designs to string up but I did have a go at laying them out just to make sure I could fit them all in!
Tomorrow will not be as exciting - I have to clean the house, do the shopping and write out a list for my parents, who are kindly looking after the children for us whilst we are away.
So that is it for a week or so, I shall be keeping quiet! Thank you to you all for your interest and kind, reassuring comments through out the build up to the show. This is a huge step for us, so fingers crossed it all goes well!
