Well, this week has been superbusy in the ways of the BlytheCon. After a bit of shopping for gobs of envelopes, a ginormous stamp pad, and having many many copies run off I set off to get the tickets ready to mail out.
It was quite an undertaking.
I sillily thought I'd get it done in one night. It took about 2 1/2 days, really. My gorgeous boyfriend helped out by adding the return address to 150+ envelopes (I did the rest while he was at work making money such that we can eat and things). I tried to use my prettiest penmanship to write out all the addresses. There were cramped hands. There was a weirdly swollen thumb. I don't understand how professional calligraphers manage.
After all the envelopes were ready I sorted them into piles: UK and everywhere else. I stuffed! And then I stamped. Remember the awesome stamp I got a while back?
It has now been put to use. Well to use, at that!
Today I took them to the post office. I cost a lot more than I expected. I had not transferred enough from the BCUK account to my own. I owe myself a rather large chunk of change! (oops).
I also booked the after party. Details will be shared closer to the date, but I think it's gonna be faaaaabulous. Cocktails! Food! An exclusive, and so pretty, venue!
Next up: bonding with the stamp again and getting the goodie bags started.
4 weeks from today. I can't wait!
