Exhibition - tick.
So sorry for my long absence...who would have known how much goes into an exhibition, and the recovery required after?! Seriously, I take my hat off to the wonderful event planners of our world - Hail oh Organised Ones!
I am not sure how many variations of 'focused' behaviour exist, but I predominantly fall into the basket labelled 'Bossy focused person with exact idea of what they want'. That is what I was like right up to the day of the exhibition. Actually, until the night before.Thank you God for Gin and Tonic, really, thank you. And for patient husbands. And understanding friends who don't respond in terror to maniacal behaviour and emails. And for obsessive prior organisation, four incredible, focused and patient women who helped me set up - phew - and a lovely hubby who became 'runner'. Because, truly, I moved from the above basket to the one labelled 'Stands wide-eyed and provides unintelligible responses'.
Anyhoo...it was a great night! I actually didn't want to leave at the end. The place looked ridiculously incredible - it did. I mean it. Wait till I get the photos to prove it (thank God also for fellow bloggers who remember their cameras when you don't!) - you too will agree that it was bloody amazing!!
To top it off, Cigana did a great job of the food (see below and drool in envy) and we had three handsome young guys making and delivering coffee! And they cleared up afterwards with their lovely mama.
So, check out the photos below .Mark remembered to take some photos so we got five which I have tried to turn into as many as I can with my tricky skills. And for the amazing people in my blackboard heart above, thank you thank you thank you. Arohanui. Especially to Dee - the most amazing graphic designer who created my business cards (which are the BS logo above). And the poster to the exhibition - I will be putting that in the next post. Dee's work rocks my world, Whoop whoop!
I will write up my tips for the adventurous-hearted when I post the rest of the photos of this most auspicious event! Thanks for reading. x
