Thank you... but i really don´t want a tummy bug :)

Sculpting is all about practice so just keep doing it and you will learn :)

I so understand your fears of tummy bugs though, when something important is coming up.

I put my family into quarrantine recently and would not let them come to see me until after the Stranglers gig I had booked to see. I was so looking forward to it - we see them every march when they tour and last year it was right when we were dealing with the social workers and everything and so couldn't relax and enjoy it.

This year I was determined NOT TO BE ILL for the concert! Even so, on the day of the concert - I am in the bathroom all day and feeling SO ill. i could Cry. In fact, I think I did a bit.

In the evening I was determined to go - and spent most of the time there feeling pretty lousy, but did at least make it through without any acicidents!

I felt so good the day before and the day after too - even doing  long bike rides and walks - probably just over exhausted myself.

So - pace yourself and don't allow yourself to run out of energy in the days before your event. Even if it is tempting to run around getting everything organised -

I will have some help when i´m organizing all the stuff that where sent ahead to Gothenburg. All in all about 40 kg och clay and books and.....

Also my dad is planning to feed me and my friend crab. I love seafood and i really miss how you can buy seafood at almost every corner in Gothenburg.

It is where i´m born and raised.  I´m doing really good here in a small northen town but sometimes i miss the ocean it self and all the good stuff coming from it.

When i´m visiting Gothenburg i can feel that i belong there. It is home. Maybe some day when nobody up here depends on me/us i will take my sweet hubby and move back home.  :)

For now i will visit and arrange Poly Camps there :D

At first I thought you had a friend crab, Karolina.  ;D

I'm pleased the plans are going well for your event.  I'm sure it will be a great success!  We live beside the sea, so I know what you mean.  It will be great going back home to Guthenburg. I've never been there, but we've always had Volvo cars - so that's the same thing.  ;D

Ha! Ha!  No, I don't have a friend crab, Karolina.  I do have a friend lobster called Lionel, but they're better eaten too.  ;D It'll be great in Guthenburg.  I love seafood too.  I'm sure it will be a great trip all round.  Be sure to report back on it all.  :)

Blimey!  We all need serious therapy, Emma.  A shrimp? :D

Karolina, we all have pet lobsters round here.  But then again, we're all mad round here. Lol.

I hope your poly camp has gone well.  I've been hoping it's been a roaring success.  :)

I recently had a dry spell. Nothing went the way I planned and I ended up with loads of scrap. In frustration I screwed it all up and for the sake of tidiness turned it into a rectangular block. I looked at it and thought 'let's just cut it,see what I've got'. What I got was a wonderful Natasha pendant that I decorated with a silk tassel. Dry spell over.
