So a few months ago I had posted about wanting to be a vendor at a place called RetroGameCon, well guess what….I’m actually going to be a vendor for it this year!
I am beyond excited about being able to be a part of the event. I already put in my application, submitted photos of my work, and got approved. Then I went and paid my vendor fee, so now I am all set on that part. I squealed like a school girl when I got the email that my application was accepted.
The event is being held on November 14, 2015 in Syracuse @ one of the buildings that is located on the NYS fairgrounds property. The place is about 2.5 hours away from me, so I am hoping to get money aside to get a hotel for the weekend, cause I have to be there at like 8am to set up and be ready by 9am for the VIP to have early access.
I have so much stuff to make and get ready and have less that 2 months to complete. I know I can get it done, but I just keep trying to put myself down, why? I don’t know I guess it’s just me. I’m planning on making some pillows, dice bags, magnets and some other stuff. I don’t want to have too much but at the same time have too little. I am nervous and excited about the event coming up. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do and finally get to!
If you’re curious about RetroGameCon click HERE and head over to their site and check it out. It looks like it’s going to be a great time, and so far it looks like I’m going to be a unique vendor. If you do go, come find “KreativeMumma” and check out the geeky inspired items :-)
This post is well over due, but hey family time always comes first :-) My little man started 1st grade on September 9, 2015, I am still in shock that my little man is old enough for the first grade. It’s like what happened to that little baby boy, it seems like yesterday I was seeing him for the first time, while half conscious from being under anesthesia. This year we were going to homeschool T, but he really wanted to go back to public school, so we let him, we didn’t want to do something he wasn’t going to be happy with.
So far it’s been 9 days since he has started school and have had no issues (yet). Last year we had problems with him being bullied, and hoping we don’t have that this year. Seems like everyone gets along in class and on the bus it’s gotten a lot better. We’ve made it thru our first spelling test and he got a 100% on it, which he was excited about and already had picture day, now they are celebrating homecoming week already.
Let’s hope the rest of the school year continues to go as smooth as it is already, but things happen so you never know lol. How has your child(ren) been liking school this year?
For T’s birthday I wanted to make him a blanket, but something different than what he already has. I decided to crochet a blanket, boy did I not realize how much of a pain it would be. It took me about 3-4 months to make the blanket, only because I would start on it, then stop for a while and go back to it. To be honest I finished it only 12 hours before T’s birthday party, but it was all worth it!
When T ripped off the wrapping paper and seen it, I knew I did a great job and that he was in love with his blanket. Will I ever make a blanket like that again? Probably not, unless we have another child, it’s just too much time consuming and can be stressful. I am just glad that T loves the blanket, seeing his reaction made all the stress it caused me to go away. I made him something he’ll love and cherish.
