This is the day
After a month full of preparation for the event,
I arrive at this moment, at 7 am,
ready to welcome my guest in front of my booth.

Woke up this morning at 4am 
after two nights in a row
couldn't get a proper sleep,
getting the display ready,
and now,
from 7 am till night,
it feels like everything moves slower.
Must be lacking oxygen supply to the brain.
I cannot think.
I just be there.

I am very fortunate one to get visited by
many of friends, families and some of
my blog readers that I even never met before!
Some friends are especially made the trip
from Jakarta to visit. Oh my.
I am a fortunate one.

Sorry to you which I completely forgot to take
picture with, or had no change,
because this was what happen in my booth,
after that sweet calm moment at 7am,
all through the day till night at 8pm
when we finally closed.
This was how it looks like.

The crowd were unbelievable.
The sun was simply too shiny.
I was getting help at 2 pm
from a cold, really cold,
ice coffee brought by such a good friend
who couldn't even get inside,
she just waving her hand outside my booth.
(Oh,thank you, dear!)

Many things were sold out.
Owl bags. Owl pencil case.
Comic pencil case-I brought 100 of them.Gee.
Thanks God.
Thank you all
for heart-ing my handmade stuff.
I am sending you more love back today.

When I tried to juggling all things
that left behind while I was preparing this event
back into the normal track this week,
I will try my best to upload
some things that still can be bought online
to my website,
as soon as me and my programer have spare time.
*Spare time,huh? Nice word.

I am really appreciated your patience
and please do visit soon.

Hugs from my giant owl
