Shows, Shows, and more Shows!!

me setting up a show (with 5-layers of clothes-I was cold!!)
I've got 2-shows down and only 4-more to go!!  This last show was VERY difficult.  I actually run that show so I'm responsible for all the preparations as well as the break down.  It was 5-days of overtime, physical labor (with help of course) and lots & lots of issues with vendors.  Once you've had to manage vendors you try to be a better vendor yourself!!  And it was actually 2-shows in 1---we had the Trade Days for 3-days and the Community Garage sale for 1-day during Trade Days.  We had a total of about 135 vendors!!  I do love doing that show, but it is very tiring.  I am getting ready for the next one which is only on Sat. and then a restful day on Sunday!!  Whew--I'm getting tired just writing this!  Anyway, I'll post pictures as I can--God Bless all and any who read this.  Pat, A Remade Life

Tending to Business!

Well, life doesn't stand still around my house!  The next few months are very busy--here's a little peek at my schedule:
          * Winnie Trade Days - March 11th - 13th
          * Humble Trade Days - March 18th - 20th
          * The Woodlands G-Sale - March 26th
          * Good Oil Days Festival - April 2nd
          * Winnie Trade Days - April 8th - 10th
          * Humble Trade Days - April 15th - 17th

All of this and I have a full-time job!!! Whew!! I'm tired just thinking about it.  It doesn't leave much time for my art and crafting, but I will manage to sneak it in every once in a while---after all, my crafting helps me to keep sane!!!   God Bless all and any who read this,   Pat - A Remade Life
