... about a week and a bit ago I set up my Furrytailes of Adventure exhibition at my local library
It had been booked a couple of months before, and for some probably easily explained reasoning, which escapes me entirely, I did what comes naturally to me ...
... I left it till the last minute to prepare!
the night before the start I grabbed some hares, a few stories I stuck on old book pages (a story on a story ~ pourquoi non??), my old advertising postcard bookmarks from last years exhibition (just changed the date and year ~ why not?)
and tumbled them into the cabinets
along with some great new kissing hare posters I had made to advertise my shop, plus my new mugs and postcards
anyway, it took less than an hour to set up, and that included polishing all that endless expanse of glass, inside and out, and wiping down the shelves, ripping some slithers of paper to line the shelves and ...
setting the beasties up on their state of the art display platforms
(em, I left that to the last minute as I couldn't imagine what on earth to support them with, so I raided my cupboard and pulled out all my packaging / shoe boxes that I ship my orders out in)
and voila! a nice homely display of friendly hares and squirrels and stories
My exhibition will be on until some time in the beginning of May - I lost my piece of paper with the dates on it, so next time I go to the library I shall check their booking folder.
I think it is at least a full week anyway
so if you are in Edinburgh, Scotland and wish to spend a relaxing time that brings a smile, then do stop by for a read and look
it's at Portobello Library, just off the main road in Portobello, which is a short car or bus ride (or bike ride) from Edinburgh city centre
Leaving things to the last minute always bring the most innovative ideas (in my opinion - but then again, I do that alot, so I should know!)
and my pair of Norwegian snowflake and polar bear gloves look perfect holding up baby hare Velvet and baby hare Clipper
would be nice to see you there, so if you'd like to say hi, send me an etsy convo and I shall turn up there too (on time!)
what a palaver! flying by the seat of her pa... p.. ...
I don't know why Annette just didn't let the hares set themselves up - they get away with mu... mu... what's that word? in here ....
.... anyway, better not stir the... the... rats! what's that word? my mind escapes me?
aaauuuhhh yaaaawwwwwnnn, ...chuup..chuup,
ZZZzzzzzz... *shouldn't have eaten that piece of paper she left on the ground ...* *note to self - visit library to borrow a dictionary to spruce up on my vocab* ...zzzzzz
