Today is the day

I'm typing my post this morning to the sound of gently falling rain and praying that by 9:00 30 miles east of here I will not be hearing the same sound.
This is the day, ready or not. It's also time for me to reveal how close I came to my goal.



Yesterday my friend Debbie and I did our mock display in her living room.
In this first picture you can see the lamps that her husband Bernie makes. The baskets in front have string angels made by Debbie.

The rack in the back corner has glass etched mugs and her mug rugs

Down the other side is where all of my stuff is.
Now that I have my morning coffee in me it's time to go do a final check to make sure I haven't forgotten anything. If you listen real careful you might hear me chanting "Rain rain, go away. Come again another day"

Good luck Ann... hope you'll have a wonderful time and i am sure the rain will go away. You've achieved your goal!

FishHawk said...

Well, as much as I hate to admit it, you have done very well, and I am quite sure that you will sell out in no time flat. After all, who wouldn't want one of your treasures? In any event, it will be good to smell bacon frying again on Monday morning. (How was that, Duke?)

Tammy said...

Your display looks really good. Good luck to both of you. I hope you both have nothing to bring home.

Anne said...

You did a great job completing the goals you set for yourself.

With all the shows I've done I've never thought to do a practice set up at home....awesome!
We always know our space size but we always wait until we're there to decide how to set it all up. We spend an hour figuring out where we want our tables and shelves and then rush to display the product.
How weird that it's never occured to us to do a little preliminary planning! : (
