Street Party Auction 2011

Nervous? - Yes!

Freaked out? - Yes!

Talking myself into going through with it? - Yes!

Wondering if there will only be 3 people there? - Yes!

Telling myself that the glass is half full - Yes!

Making the most of the moment, knowing that this can be a practise run for the next one, and knowing that I am helping our neighbours in QLD? - Yes! 

Do I need a drink? - YES, YES, YES!!!!

*gulp*  There is one hour to go to our street party auction.  
Say a little prayer for me - please.

Some cards to sell for $2.00 each.

The basket of bookmarks and cards all with envelopes and individually wrapped.

Notelet packs of 10 post cards and 10 envelopes.  Hope to sell for $3.00 per packet.

Crochet scarf from a Ravelry pattern, with choccies.

Movie pack, 2 adult movie tickets and munchies.

Various kid packs.

We also have donations of wines, a choccie gift pack, a picnic backpack set and a lovely romantic/pamper gift basket.  Oh and I also have two vouchers for school book covering.  

Well Joyce, there is only one way to find out, and that is to chin up and get out there girl.  

I think I need to read my post from yesterday and breath. . . . . 

Thanks so much for stopping by my place today.  

Have a lovely afternoon at your place.

Thank you, thank you, thank you again for your encouragement and faith. lol You know quite honestly, I don't think I would have done this auction had I not had a blog. Sounds weird, however, it't not - really. I am more confident in myself, I feel like I have so much more to offer and I have only tipped the iceberg here. Reading others blogs, their dreams, their wishes for their kids, how they see the world and their dreams for the future of our world. I am constantly inspired and warmed by what I read, so thank you again for your friendship.
