No time to panic...

It's the home stretch before a show... usually I have more of the week preceding to work on getting stuff ready, but I wasn't so lucky this time. How is it that I feel busier since I QUIT my dayjob?! Oh, right, I have weekends again, and am so slackerly as to take them!

Got more prints matted, and more prints printed, and am now feverishly printing mousepads and contemplating magnets and stickers. Plenty of bookmarks leftover, and I've got more clearance prints to mat at the parents house. I'll check in to the show this evening with a load of the big, awkward stuff - tables and stands and such. Need to figure out what I can hang on their backdrop, and whether I'll want the big pegboard display... it's a pain to move, but makes really nice hanging space.

Wanted to have at least a few of the pocket dream journals to sell - we'll see if I manage that or not. Ahhghh! Just feeling very headless chicken at the moment.

Oh! And I'll have ears to sell at the show! A local lady named Melissa makes the most darling ears, and I'll have them available.

Heh. Broke my Epson 4000 paper tray lid. Dropped it on the ground and cracked it in two spots, plus knocked off two more important bits and knocked all the components apart. DOH! It sits on top, sort of, for now, but doesn't stretch like it should, or allow the tray to come out like it should. Could kick myself... shouldn't have put it at an angle where it could fall. I'll have to investigate and see if I can get a replacement part.

It is cruel, cruel, CRUEL to get inspiration when I'm this busy...
