No rest for the wicked i guess-pic heavy

Post by ladysinaz on Fri Nov 30, 2012 11:41 am

It's been a little touch of chaos around here lately.. got my business cards.. started getting likes on my fb page. I figured it would be slow.. BAM too much to do now

So i had mentioned that i was trying out a spot at this local market that is opening up.
It's neat in that it is open all week, but the vendors are not required to be there all the time. You have you table set up with your price codes on the products and there is one cash register that takes all payments.
As you can imagine, for a service industry like ours, a little problematic. I work my day job all week..and can only attend to paint on the weekends when i am not booked.

I thought i was all clever and decided to do up products that could be sold during the week when i couldn't be there.. Henna'd candles Smile i can't tell you the number of times i have burned myself Embarassed



Grand opening is tomorrow, i'm not anywhere near ready and i have a party to do tonight.

Here is how bare and pathetic my booth looks thus far







Last weekend i was all pumped to try and set something up. at 9am i get a phone call that wakes me up ( i have no children, there is no need of me being up at the naughty word crack of dawn on the weekends Wink )

It was a semi frantic call from a business who's face painter bailed on them at the last minute ( she had to go to the hospital b/c she injured herself i think)
I would like to thank X-facion, who they called first and was already booked, so she passed on my info cheers

With one eye open and nothing prepped.. lets giver a go.. after having to reschedule a meeting i had to see about getting advertising in a local bowling alley and potentially be added into their b-day party deals. Did i mention that i am tired? lol!

i keep thinking that once this weekend is done, things will settle down.. what are the chances that is just wishfull thinking?

On a less stressful note.. check out stuff..
So vista print is da bomb.. got this for $10 over the weekend

Along with some $7 banners and gift cards and other randomness

If that is not fun enough..

Lookit the obnoxious amount of glitter i got today.. and this in only show some of it geek
