So MAN's birthday is in June. I've conspired with some friends to have it at their house as a combo birthday (his wife's is the day prior) and that it will be 80s themed. MAN loves his 80s. I am on the hunt for a black, 80's skinny tie ... do any of you guys have one in the closet you'd like to part with?
Tax return arrived yesterday. I've allowed $50 to spend on myself - no holds barred - but I cant decide what to spend it on. A handbag of holding (Think Geek), a pedicure (its been so darn long), or maybe a pair of summer sandals...so much to choose from. Are you spending any of your refund on yourself?
I think I mucked up. I listed a bead in a 24 hour auction early this morning ... not a peep yet. I was sorta hoping it would go quick so I could list another (and so I'd have a little cash for the gas tank). I'm looking forward to figuing out what sells on the FB auction page - clearly I'm not there yet.
And bead show numbers are in...just shy of $800. Well below the rule that your table fee should be 10% of your take but I'm not complaining, not even a little. It's extra cash, and honestly it's fun to do. I'm getting my own little fan club of repeats ... So awesome!
I have another bead show this weekend (probably the last until fall). Last show I was worried about filling an 8' table, this time I'm wondering how I'll fit it all in 2.5'. The lady I split the table with invited a third person ... finger's crossed the promoter gives us another table (heavy on the GIVE)
For Valentine's MAN let the next Andrew Zimmern Quarterly package ship rather than cancel as planned. Oh am I glad he did! The theme is Asian cooking and the recipe is for a sauce called Aji Yaki. Of note in the box is Bluegrass Soy Sauce ... Something I've wanted to try since I learned of it on AZ's show!
Somehow between now and Tuesday next week I have to: finish MANs taxes (easy peasy - not a big deal), make beads for show (not many), make and photo beads for tutorial, write tutorial, deliver beads to studio for show (oh and make jewelry out of them first), attend a baby shower (prolly shop on the way - hah!) and 10 other forgotten things
