In the Studio: Preparing

If there was a word of the week for all of the things happening here at Kat Goldin Designs HQ - it would be "preparation".  While a day doesn't go by without one deadline or another, I have used the remainder of my time to look slightly further ahead.  I have been determined that I am not going to hit the Christmas rush in an ill-prepared mess that has characterised the last 2 years. Helping to keep my mind very focused is the fact that the manuscript for book 2 is due on the 31st of December AND that I will be running a stall and workshops at the Glasgow Country Living Christmas Fair. Oh and The Crochet Project Issue 2, Blogtacular, Capturing Childhood and 3 little children. Oh yes, preparation  (and hired help) IS the only thing that is going to get us through.

Which is totally fine as this is the bit I like best.  The planning and plotting.  The dreaming and scheming.  I also love ordering supplies and it has been so fun picking out new packaging and materials for the kits. I have made various lists and charts and spreadsheets.  The rest of my house is a disaster, but at least  my lists are organised!!

Of course the 700 crochet hooks I ordered need a place to go and this gorgeous gentleman's wardrobe will be perfect. I just need to decide what will go in the "pyjamas" shelf.

But don't worry, despite my drive to be more organised - normal craziness continues whether I want it to or not.
