The Countdown

It's begun...a week from today I will be loading up and heading to Hernando, MS, for a craft fair. My goal this whole time has been 100 tassels, several bookmarks (that I haven't even told you about), and some of my little tissue paper decorations as fillers. I have to admit, I'm nervous. Excited, yes, but nervous.

Can I get all of this done? I have 68 tassels made. Oh, I wish I could show you all of them. They are so pretty. I'm not just tooting my own horn. The thought that I could acutally create something as pretty as these things amazes me. Look at this penquin!

Trust me, he is SO much cuter in person! The whole time I worked on him I kept thinking, "Oh, man, this is gonna be so cute!" And I was right! He's going to be so hard to let go.

In fact, a lot of them are like that. How can I sell my babies? Huh, you stick some cash in my face and watch how fast I can say, "Buh-bye!"

I'm nervous about all the other "little" things that have to be done before then, too. My display is not finished yet, I haven't made up price tags, I haven't gotten the bags I'll put the buyer's stuff in, haven't done a lot of things. I have a lot to get done in a week. If Sound Man and I make it without getting a divorce, we can make it through anything. I'm just kidding. He puts up with so much of my yuck it's unbelieveable.

So, this next week my blogging and commenting may be sporadic at best. Just know that I'm here in spirit, and will be back after the 16th with bells on. What does that even mean?
