What a Mess!!

I think this post is more for myself than anyone else. Get yourself together! I've been trying to work after work in the evenings and it hasn't gone so well this week. I have my weekend cut out for me... I've got three shows coming up ( 'tis the season!) and I have to get a bunch of the smaller items done. I procrastinate because I love making the specialty items and spending time on those. But my mentor -oh so long ago taught me to always have smaller things at your table because they are actually the things that pay for at least the expense of renting the space. She was right. I can go all day sometimes and not sell any larger items, but if I sell enuf smaller ones, I at least feel like I broke even..
It's been a rough week, but hopefully I can put on the super mom cape this weekend and get crackin! I probably have enough items as it is, but I always have this idea that my booth should be stuffed and I should have more in the car in case I need it. It's not usually about the cash, but I hate when people come back towards the end of a show and say "aawww I was coming back for...." It's that disgusting need to please everyone :o)
Don't point out how ugly that room is. It's last on the list for renovating. That wall paper is hideous and I've already ripped it off one and a half walls. (Kinda made it worse) I cover up one wall with done dollies so I don't have to look at it.
I've got a whole tub full of misc ornaments, legs and pieces that need to be stuffed. When the boy was younger he used to like doing some of that. Nowadays he wants to be paid for it!

If only I could get HER to get up and do something while I'm away making the bacon.....
That's OK Doo, you just rest.
Well now I am on my own official record of holding myself accountable. Let's see how this all looks on Sunday. I'm off to the real job... then groceries... then I have to stop for a few craft supplies.... then it's pumpkin carving night...oh my, it's looking bleak for today! Doxie- get up and DO something!
Happy Friday!
