The CUHK Handicraft Fair

It has been 2 years since I participated in a craft fair.  This one on past Sat. seemed less exhausting, perhaps due to it being only one day and with shorter opening hours.

The exhaustion actually came from the preparation work which included designing and launching a website, designing and printing 120 different postcards, and some QA work to make sure the 120 different QR codes on the postcards link correctly to the website.  Everything seemed simple as an idea, but execution was a lot more difficult and time-consuming.

I was rather stressed last week running up to the fair.  Even days after the fair, I’m still having nightmares and waking up in the middle of the night with headaches.

It’s a bit silly how a little craft fair can raise havoc to my body, I had thrived through much more stressful situations!?  Have my body and spirit fallen weak?  I think I’ll take some time off work this week to let my body rest and recover.
