Does this look like the desk for the general manager of a major regional theatre? It is! Every day is full of paper...budgets, accounts to be reconciled, bills to be paid, contracts to be drafted, finalized and fully executed.
Anyone got any great organizing tips?

Ok, so I like the IDEA of pumpkin carving. I don't like cleaning out the guts. I get bored before my pumpkin is clean. I also have grand ideas for carving, and the carving skills of an eight year old. (I don't have great knife skills in the kitchen either. It's a wonder I have all my fingers.)
Isn't she cute? (Pumpkin has to be a girl...look at the hairdoo!) I carved it all myself. The eyes are even similar sizes!
And she has a big mama friend. Jes' pumpkin was equally suprised.

Her 16 year old daughter is in need of a kidney transplant, and they haven't been able to find a donor match. Please check out her blog, and spread the word.

Great vendors, funky venue, delicious baked goods (I couldn't resist Jillian's rice krispie squares) and my best event sales to date!
Unfortunately, my camera ended up with very little battery (I didn't check it on Friday night, and didn't bother charging the camera) so I don't have lots of great photos.
I was across from a great vendor, Girl Called Ric. I fell in love with her vintage halloween inspired dolls. Check them out!
I did get a pic of my latest idea for displaying blankets. I sold a few...maybe it was the new display! (ok, probably not...work with me here)
There's rumor there may also be a holiday show at this venue...I'm there!

No longer does one need to settle for plain green Wellies. J Crew has these pink polka dot ones on sale.
These red floral ones from Boden are my favorite. I wonder if I can justify purchasing them? It's supposed to still be raining tomorrow...

Look for these aprons (and more) coming soon to my etsy shop.

Here's what I learned:
1) EZ Up tents ROCK!
My birthday present was a very practical, and totally awesome EZ Up tent.
2) You need a buddy for outside shows.
While the EZ Up tent is awesome, it still takes two people to get it out of the carying case and up and ready to go. Not to mention the extra volume of EVERYTHING one brings to decorate a 10x10 space is a lot to load and unload. The flaw in this is that all the stuff leaves no room for your buddy in the car. At least not if you expect to see out of any window while you're driving.
3) The CT Etsy Team Rocks!
This one I already knew, but Sunday reinforced our strengths as a team. Every vendor was super friendly and helped each other unload, figure out where to set up on the lawn and helped each other get tents up and secure.
4) Be sure to set up your tent so you can take advantage of the shade it provides.
We started out the day wondering if we were going to see any sun, but by lunchtime the sun was out in full force. I set my table up too far in the back of the tent, so my chair was outside the canopy of the tent. Which meant I had nowhere to hide when the sun started to burn my pale shoulders.
5) I'd do it all again.
Despite the chaos, being buddyless and the crazy weather, I'd do it all again.
Isn't the tent awesome?

This Sunday, I'm participating in an indie craft show with some of my CT Etsy Teammates. Check out the video our fearless team leader made...
(someday i'll figure out how to embed the video, tonight, we're luck it's a clickable link!)
