Still in shock

I got a call a couple hours ago.  I am still in shock that she had the nerve to ask me to have a jewelry party for her catalog company.  She knows I make and sell jewelry.  What would my friends think if I invited them to a jewelry party and the jewelry wasn't mine??  What WAS she thinking?????  Is my jewelry not good enough?? I just can't believe it.

from my daughter's collection

My daughter and I both like to collect inspirational sayings.  She posted this on my facebook timeline for me and it really hit home.  Dedicated to all the creative people out there.

"You may not be a Picasso or Mozart but you don't have to be. Just create to create. Create to remind yourself you're still alive. Make stuff to inspire others to make something too. Create to learn a bit more about yourself." -- Frederick Terral

Ready or not!

Canopy and tables all set up and started putting up my displays-- Tomorrow is the big day--- Show opens at 9 am.  Park opens at 6 am-- guess who has to be there at 6 to make sure we get everthing set up.  I am going to try to brong my camera so I can get a few pictures.  Wish me luck! And if you are in the Tucson area tomorrow or Sunday, you better come say hello!

Not enough hours in a day!!! only 1 room cleaned for Thanksgiving company and only 1 pendant and a few pairs of earrings done.... Starting to wonder if I will make it.  Need to kick it in high gear tomorrow!!  At least have menu planned and groceries bought.  Biig turkey taking up bottom shelf of my fridge starting the thawing process.  We can do this!!

Full steam ahead!

Church parking lot sale done (cool and many events going on). Not a good sale, but still good advertising.  Now it is on to PUSH to get as much done as possible for the Arts festival! Tablecloths to make, signs to make, more business cards to print, packing and cleaning, and of course, make as much as I can! Wish me luck! I also need to do a thorough cleaning on my house to prep it for Thanksgiving dinner.  Made my shopping list last night.  I think I will send hubby out to get it this afternoon.  That will give me a bit of quiet time to sew.  My sewing machine is on the desk, in an alcove right off the living room where he will be blasting some game or show if he is home. I also need to inventory my Christmas gifts made and purchased to figure out what I have left to do/buy.  I might be able to get most of the rest of it done at the festival this weekend if I can get hubby to cover the booth for a bit.

In a frazzle--- in a frazzle..... church parking lot sale Saturday and my biggest art fair ever next Saturday and Sunday.... Add to that stress at the full time job.....Can I get everything done?? I have lost my motivation..... and the weather is making my fibro worse so not sleeping well and in higher than normal pain.  Pray things work out.

Off to w@rk, then???

Back from my much needed long weekend without beading--- Webpage up and blog officially running so can't say without work.  Off to the job that pays my insurances, etc. (5-2) then...? Probably sewing my new tablecloths. I lucked out and found 2 more "mamaowl" panels. After all, the only show I try to watch every week is on tonight- not pre-empted by the elections. So sewing in the living room it is so I can watch Jethro, Dinozo, Abby, and crew  :)  Oh, and getting swap box 1 out and P2P swap holiday colors out on my BeadSwapUSA exchanges... Have a great day everyone!

saving the dates!

This will be my first Blog Hop!! Looking forward to it!

waking up to kitty licks

My sister's cat, Natasha, has decided she likes me.  I woke up this morning to her sleeping between my feet.  When I kicked the first foot loose of the covers, she proceeded to wash it. Same with foot #2. I then bent down to move her so I could get out of bed and got my face washed.  What a warm and welcoming wake up!  Now on to "helping" my sister get my webpage up.  Good thing she knows what she is doing- I am lost, lol

trying to clear my head

Even though I should be prepping for the big show, I am taking a small sabattical--- I am visiting with one of my sisters whom I haven't seen in 2 years.  I needed it! I am burnt out.  The job is getting to be too much and trying to do the jewelry on top, my fibro is in full gear.  Hoping this short 4 days will help recharge,  Wish me luck!

Prepping for a show when too busy

Ok, everyone says I should have a blog-- but I hate writing.  Things never come out like I want.  But i will give it a try.  I have the biggest (and most expensive) show I have ever done coming up in less than a month.  How do I get anything done for it?  By the time I get home from work and shovel a path through my disaster called a house, I am too pooped to pop. I am trying to force myself to do 1 item per day. oh well, it will at least mean I have lots of earrings, lol. They are the quickest things I can do.  I have a Church ride today so won't have a lot of time today either.  when I get home from that, I am going to pick up one of my ufo's(un-finished objects) and finish it for the show- then I need to straighten some in the studio.  I have creators block created by the chaos in there right now. Maybe I will have enough time to straighten it enough to actuall be able to get things done without having to spend half my time searching for something I know I have.  Wish me luck!
