Craft 2.0 - A whirlwind trip

Craft 2.0 was on Saturday. This is my story.

I had a hectic week at work finishing up with being on an amazing but intense course for the last two days of the week. This meant I had to be finished packing and making for Craft 2.0 by Wednesday - I made it but it was full on.

I headed straight from my course, which was based north of Auckland, and headed to the airport. Thank goodness I was a little early and I was able to sit down and breathe and have a wine. I thought that was a nice start to my trip.

I arrived into Wellington to a lovely clear but very cool night - my winter coat really came into its own!!

I met up with Cat who had arrived earlier in the day, and we had a gossip and then hit the hay ready for the next day.

Setting up in the morning is a bit of a blur - coffee came about 45 minutes into the set up courtesy of our lovely stall assistant and my friend Leyla. 

Once the doors open we were all go. It was a busy day for us, but having someone to help us on our stall meant we could have a bit of a wander and a look around. Last Craft 2.0 I couldn't leave my stall for even a second so it was nice to have the chance.

There were some amazing stalls - I came away with a colouring book from Lovely Sweet William and some small photographic images from Susannah Tucker and a lovely pillow for my son from Tea Pea. I could have bought so much more and I still might!

The plaited necklaces from Gottahave were so nearly in my clutches - They are my next purchase for sure.

The end of the day came pretty quickly and we packed up ready to make my 5pm flight.

I wish I had been able to take more time in Wellington - its a city I find really interesting. Next time I have promised myself a slow journey instead of a whirlwind one.

Thanks to Cat for being my road trip buddy and thanks to Leyla for her help. 

Sue and crew - THANK YOU for putting on a classy and well organised event. It is always a pleasure.

That's me on the right- I was surprised hence the odd expression!
