Carrying On

Oh boy. I can’t even describe the kinds of busy things have been over here. Suffice it to say: SO BUSY. Busy enough that fewer than 6 hours of sleep a night has been the norm. Busy enough that I haven’t seen the floor of my office or the surface of my kitchen table (things everywhere!) in days. Busy enough that I’ve become a well-oiled (mwahahaha, see what I did there?!) lotion-making machine.


Preliminary booth setup.

There have been 15 batches of lotion made this week, and 150 lip balms last week. There has been a brief-yet-wonderous appearance on the Yarn Harlot’s blog. There have been last-minute, rush orders of cardboard cupcake stands placed. There have been emergency trips to Michael’s and JoAnn’s. There maaaaaay have been some tears and a little tantrum due to exhaustion and frustration (but we’ll move right on past all that). There will yet be extremely-last-minute crafting of signs and display information… but I’m still hoping for an early bedtime.

This show will happen, and it will be wonderful, rain be damned. If you’re in New England, take a little trip over to Bristol to check out the Rhode Island Sheep & Fiber Festival at Coggeshall Historic Farm tomorrow (Saturday, May 17th). The rain should clear up around noon and I promise it will be awesome. Plus, you’ll get to smell all my lotion scents in person! (Which would be worth the drive, I swear.)

There will be no Inspiration Saturday post this week as I’ll be working my tail off vending. Wish me luck! 🙂

  1. It makes me feel a little better knowing that I’m not the only one who can lose it when stress gets too high. I’m glad you’ve made it over that speed bump.
