What a crafter looks like!

If you've ever done a craft show, then you know what I mean. We crafters get pretty stressed out when it's down to the last couple days before a show.
Well, I'm not getting ready for a show (yet), but I am getting ready for my Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday. I'm doing my best to make as much inventory as I can and still be sane. ;)
Then, I get ready for my first show of the year which is only two weeks away. I'll be doing the Garden Jubilee show in Hendersonville, NC for the first time. It's a two day show and just over an hour away, so it will be an exhausting weekend. My store in Burnsville will be open thanks to my friend Judi, and I also need to leave some inventory there since it's Memorial Day weekend.
Sooooo, I think this picture pretty much sums it up.
If you're in Burnsville Saturday, or Hendersonville on Memorial Day weekend, stop by and say howdy!
Don't look for this lady in the picture though. I'll be 52 on Tuesday, so I'm MUCH younger than her. :)

LOL.. I admit I get stressed before my shows, gee I'll be 53 so I may be getting closer to looking like that..LOL. I always have a dumb dream right before shows that I don't have enough inventory. Do you have that one too?

I have had that same look! I need to post that on my craft table for everytime that I think that I need to do "just one show" Thanks for the reminder!

Yes, great illustration...
I feel this way too...end of the school year. Finals, projects, grades, fines, check in books, clean classrooms, etc. etc.!
Take care ~Natalie

Best of luck with your two big productions! Love your graphic, and Drink Green Tea and not caffeine till the end of the weekend.


Oh Boy...that is how I used to look years ago when I first started in the craft/art shows. Love the graphic !! What a "hoot."

Rosalie said...

Love the graphic and I sure do experience that feeling more often than I would like to admit.

But what would we do without all that excitment and that lovely crafter look? (I am not that old either)

Lots of Luck with your show and store!!!

I remember looking JUST like her many a day! (Except I have teeth!) lol Wish I was going to be there for the Hendersonville show. My hubbie's family lives there. Hope you do well! ~~Annie
