Last weekend I worked like a fiend.
I finished up 16 prints and mounted them on painted canvases and then sealed them and took them to work.
I hung several in each exam room and I have even more up front at the reception desk.
I also worked on painting paper mâché pumpkins. I finished up three so far and also took them into the clinic to sell.
I went out to my booth and it's sold down and I need to replenish it.
I picked up my check while there.
It's my second one. I made rent, paid their commission fee and had a small amount left to buy some art markers.
Slowly my house is emptying out and each month I've been able to pick up some art supplies.
I'm sure some people would say that the amount of time and energy spent, isn't worth it but it's working for me.
To be able to get rid of stuff and have a few dollars to buy art stuff.
While out at the mall where my booth is, they told me that next month, on Saturday November 21st, is the big Open House.
I guess everyone gets their booths in super shape and they make goodies to give away to customers up front.
Yep, a real social deal.
I usually just scurry in to work on my booth and leave. I'm polite, say a quick greeting but I keep walking.
I notice other vendors stop and socialize at the front counter.
I just want to empty my house and make a few bucks.
But I'll make some sugar cookies and put my booth number in frosting on top.
I can do it, be social I mean.
I don't want to but, I will.
Other stuff... I got my dot.com and secured my art name for a shop on Etsy.
I'll share more when I have more to show.
THEN.... A LOT is going on at my day job.
The one girl that was such a problem is gone. I won't go into it here. At least not right now, but I took care of that situation and I also came up with a new plan for work.
My co-workers LOVED the idea and Doc grudgingly went along with it.
It involves much more responsibility and more hours and in the LONG run it will be for the best.
I won't bore you with the details right now either because this post is getting overly long again!
And finally, I need to get the front part of my fence up before it gets COLD.
I'm thinking it needs to be this weekend because the forecast is warm and sunny and THAT kind of weather is for sure not to last.
So right now I've got more balls spinning in the air than ever.
But I actually feel OK about it all!
Really I do! because eventually it will all fall into place...
And don't worry!
I will have the calendar and cards very soon too!
Wish me luck and I'll "see" ya when I see ya!
