Ms Sleepyhead

I've just passed pregnancy Week 10 and am now into Week 11. As I crossed from 10th - 11th week, I have been hit with intense tiredness.

By 9pm my eyelids start drooping and by 10pm I'm usually fast asleep.

What this means is that I effectively don't have any spare time at all between work, dinner and sleep! How sad.

One thing that excites me now though, is that I have been asked to make earrings to sell and raise funds for charity! It is part of my organisation's yearly fund raising activities. I was told I could claim the cost of raw materials, but I decided I would donate those as well, since I still have quite a lot of materials left (although I already have been giving some away!).

I have about 4 weeks to prepare for this. My eyelids would have to be kept up to make say, 2-4 pairs a day? I hope I can do it!

xrhapsodizingx: Oh wow, I am so amazed and touched that you actually remember the names of those creations! Thank you dear :) I cringe a little now when I look at how awful my photography was at my old site =P For this charity thing though, I'll likely only make simpler earrings coz I need to do quantity.

imp: Hehehe, I won't call them that though! Good idea, I'll post once I have a couple of good shots.

nuttyjas: Hehehe. They will be simple ones lah. Me no time to do intricate, unique ones. Have to achieve quantity for the fair!

josiah n faith: Hahaha, good thing I haven't actually slept in any meetings yet. But it is such a ragdoll feeling in the evening. Quite frustrating for me though because I am used to packing in lots of stuff in my schedule =P

Hello! I blog-hopped over, saw your post and wondered if you'd like to have additional metal/bead components for your (charity) crafting?

ziling: Thanks for your vote of confidence. They're going to simple ones k!

riendel: Hey! I remember you. You used to be a neishus customer too right? You're making pretty things yourself now :) Thanks for offering stuff - I still have a ton lying around though and am unlikely to need more. My colleagues were shocked when they saw what I have =P

tiffany: Thanks dear - I will. The body just shuts down when I am tired these days. No longer can I force myself awake the way I used to anymore. It is just not possible! heh
