Sales were slow but I do see it as an accomplishment

I had two shows to get through this month... two shows on consecutive weekends... eight months pregnant... in the rain. Yep. Both weekends were wet too. I sold about half of what I was counting on while shivering in the rain. I got through it. I didn't cry about it (much).

I did make a couple of promising business contacts. Schmitt music out of O'Fallon is selling a bunch of my guitar straps.
I also made a deal with a shop in Mascoutah called Kindred Spiritz. Jana has a box full of my stuff to display and sell.

I don't regret busting ass to get ready for these shows. My booth really did look nice.

Baby shower mania

I can't believe how much people love to buy baby stuff. This works out for me because I started with a basket of stuffed animals and now my dining room is full. Joe and I are finally able to work on the baby's room this week. He is nailing down loose paneling as I type. After that I get to dust, tape and paint. Maybe I can get all of this stuff out of my dining room this weekend and move it upstairs. That is... if we don't have that pesky labor thing get in the way.
