A Haphazard Mish-Mosh of Arbitrary Madness

That, or “this is going to be a whole bunch of random stuff that has nothing in common other than it is all what is going on in my world right now which is sometimes inconsequential but always all over the place”. Guess that title would be a little too long so I’m happy with the one I went with instead. So then let’s get on with the jumbled mess I call my daily world.

First and foremost this is the last time I’ll be pimping to get as many people as possible out to the FUMC Craft Fair in Melrose tomorrow. 645 Main St 9:00 - 1:00.

All my bags

Are packed

I’m ready to go!

Now that the sales will commence and the production of all those upcycled fabrics lessens, we can finally get our house back together. It is going to seem like we have so much space in our teeny apartment and the quilt-like layer of tiny threads all over the carpet will succumb to the vacuum on Sunday during football. Yee-haw!

Recently Charmaine posted a link to a really fun site where I spent some time “yearbooking” myself into a bunch of different time periods. It made me chuckle to see myself in these different eras but what was really funny is that the 1990 photo is scarily too close to my actual yearbook picture from 1991.

How much hairspray would this take?

I always wondered what I would look like with an afro.

To bang or not to bang?

See what I mean? Talk about hairspray, ugh.

Tomorrow Matt is going to hit the road and start acquiring a trunk load of pallets so we can start construction on our entertainment center. It is going to be a whole lot of fun to watch this thing come together. Nothing like acquiring material for free to create an enormous piece of furniture. I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed that it comes out nice because he already has plans to build a bunch of other functional furniture pieces using this free stock of lumber. That should keep him out of trouble for the entire winter and then he and B can bond over manly things like sawdust and planers while S and I bond over shaking our heads at the guys but enjoying the fruits of their labor.

Your bags are beautiful - good luck with the sale! I can't sew a straight line. Really! I keep thinking I should get a sewing machine and learn to sew, but it would probably end up in the corner (along with my treadmill). The yearbook pics are hilarious... I'm going there to see what I used to look like! I'll be waiting for updates on the entertainment center!

The 1960 picture is an absolute hoot!

Congratulations on your first show. I'm glad you felt confident and that it turned out to be a positive experience. I'm sure sales would have been even better if the economy was better.

My show went well. I had a great time socially with the other vendors, was asked to be on the jury committee for this show for next year, and sales were pretty good. I went in with a hopeful sales range and managed to hit the low range number. As I said above, in a better economy, perhaps I would have hit the high range, or better, but I'm happy with what I sold (just wish my Etsy sales would pick up a bit).

Love the yearbook photos! LOL. The 1960 photo is great! I especially love the gum in your mouth. Was that yours or added to the photos as well? The 1980 photo is pretty close.

I'll keep my fingers crossed about the entertainment center, but I'm sure it'll be fabulous. Be sure to post a photo when it's done.

Thanks for filling me in -- and you're welcome. :)
