Craft 2.0. I dragged Lee to it, since I had no one else to go with. It was nice to see Evie and Jarratt there after all, and I received a head from them, who is now in my spare room wearing my Mickey Mouse ears. I also got became a “Friend of Craft 2.0” and got a free necklace and a couple of badges, and hopefully future amazing deals for being a friend. I bought the last ever issue of World Sweet World and resisted the cupcakes.
At Craft 2.0 I bought another super beautiful one of a kind notebook. This lady, whose brand is Ruby in the dust re-binds old Little Golden Books with printer’s offcuts to make sturdy, super thick books. She happened to have “Sly Little Bear and other stories” which is one that I had when I was a kid. The stories are simple moral tales about little bears that learn that its good to take baths, listen to mother and be themselves. I ❤ it. I might have to do a blog entry on my lovely gorgeous notebooks that are too good to use soon. I have stationery-o-philes reading don't I? You'd like that.
So much stuff is on at the moment that it's really fun just to be living in Wellington! In addition to the previously mentioned mannequins (which are awesome, rewarding careful viewing and repeat visits and playing out a murder mystery!) I have been to a circus show this week (The Navigators) and seen Audrey Niffenegger speak. Town is buzzing with tourists and locals, the weather is stunning (if cold in the mornings and after dark) and well, it’s awesome. Yay home city!
