Pulling my hair out…

Well, not literally, but close to it. I’m trying to get ready for a show coming up on the 26th and it’s raining non-stop. Started raining this past weekend and shows no sign of stopping until this coming Sun/Mon at least. There goes the power bill because the dehumidifier and AC come into play now.

This is also “new” for me in that it is only a 6 foot table set up not a full 10×10 space and I’m focusing only on my resin jewelry. I’ve never done a show with one “item” only. There are a range of products within what I do with resin, but that is the focus. I’m used to having a range of items available from jewelry to origami art to sewn items. This just feels odd to me and a bit nerve wracking putting all my eggs in one basket. I’ll either do well or I’ll be a total and complete flop.

I’m also getting down to the nitty gritty and worrying if I have enough product on hand, do I have time to pour more of this or that, what do I need more of, getting my display set, getting supplies gathered (remember that move I’m packing for? yeah, I’ve had to dig stuff back out of boxes!) and just wrapping it all up. 

Somehow it always seems to come together but at this stage it never feels like it will. It always feels like I’m going to forget something, drop some ball I’m juggling, have some sort of snafu I just did not see coming. This to shall pass. 

I will try to post some photos soon for a sneak peak preview of what will be available at the show! One woman show ya know…

“Oh the places you’ll go…”

What a strange and wondrous journey this life has been and I have plenty ahead of me! Never in a million years as a little bare footed girl playing on a dirt road did I think I would go, see, and do all I have thus far in life and I am thankful for all of it and thirst for more. Like many I have come to realize that in order to do more I need to downsize and simplify my life. Whew, what a job ahead! (especially if you know me and all I have accumulated in the past 10 or so years! LOL)

So, join me on my journey to downsize my home, learn to live more simply, figure out how to downsize my arts – the largest challenge – and come along on my travels and adventures too.
