17 Days and Counting

Yesterday I talked about living without a clock, and even though I think I would love that, right now I am obsessed with clock and calendar watching. My very first craft show is now 17 days away and I still have a lot to get done. I don't waste a minute either! I'm not laying in bed in the morning for that extra five or ten minutes because I can use that time to put labels or prices tags on completed items or I can band coasters into sets, or glue the backs on light switch covers. No amount of matter how small...goes to waste!

Crazy? Yep, but it's necessary. It is such a good thing that I love this stuff and that I am so excited about the craft show or I would be a mess. My workshop is a disaster and that does bother me a bit, but I am working on so many different things. Some of the things I make require drying time and some don't, so I'm constantly jumping back and forth between things. I have boxes of finished things and stacks of things that still need to do be done! It's really pretty funny to be honest with you.

The next time I do a show, I will be better prepared. I just heard about this one late, ended up on the waiting list, had no idea if I would be accepted and didn't start working on things until I was. If I'm going to continually do shows, I will always be working on increasing my inventory. I now have cute labels designed, nice business cards, a canopy and display pieces. That will save a tremendous amount of time!

So, yep...I am busy. Am I stressed? Nope. I'm as calm as can be, and I mean that. Will I get everything done? I really have no idea, but I will have plenty of awesome things to fill my little 10 by 10 space. If I don't get it all done is it the end of the world? Nope. It will all work out just always does.

You have a such a great attitude that how can it help but go well? It's going to be a HUGE success, and I can't wait to read about all the things you sold.

Glad to hear all the prep isn't stressing you out. Your happy demeanor will attract people to your booth -- I know I'm always drawn in to see "happy crafts."
