It's been a week

 Let's start with the show last weekend. It was actually pretty good. There were not as many vendors as I thought there would be but it was a decent turnout. Did a bit of business, made back my booth fee anyway. And I got to see a couple of Swissys, Ruckus and Gilly. It was so, so good to see some Swissys. I miss my Bella so badly. I love Maverick, but Bella was something special. I think we will be getting a Swissy in the next few years and I think it will be the only dog. Hopefully we can get it at the beginning of summer and be able to spend some time with it and train it before we have to leave it alone. Whatever, it will work out one way or the other. 

So today I'm in full getting ready for the next show mode. That is tomorrow. I got a lot of things to engrave and need someway to display them. So I think that means a trip to At Home today. I made something but I don't know.... I want things to look nice. Weird I know. I'm making things and hoping people will buy them but I don't want to use things I've made to display stuff. I get the contradictions. 

I've said this before and I'll say it again, I need to spend time on my social media during the week. I have fully come to accept that cutting and painting is generally out of the question after work. I'm too tired and if I worked out it's pretty late. So that is out. But every night I spend at least an hour on my iPad or computer playing games. I could spend that time lining up my social media. Facebook has a planner so I can schedule posts in advance and not have to do them every night, but I just need to do it. I also need to work on my email list. I have to build that up and get some people on it. At the fair last weekend I completely ignored my email sign up. I just spaced it. So tomorrow that is my focus. 

Yeah, so it's all about getting ready for tomorrow today. I'm excited and hopefully this will be a good show.

Faced my fears

 So I mentioned that I had gotten some of the cups I ordered. They are Stanley dupes and have gold plating under the powder coating, so when...
