Working toward a show

Boy, when you don't have any art fairs for 6 months you forget about that last minute push before a show. You've had all this time, you should be ready and waiting when the show finally arrives - right? All kinds of shiny, new stuff just waiting to be put out in the freshly done jewelry cases. You're all ready to go.

Except that I just remembered that I wanted to put new paper on the backs of the cases before shows started this year. And the box I carry case parts in needs cleaning out and the parts spiffed. My chair needs a touch-up paint job. I needed to cut and frost more plexi pieces and paint more blocks.

Yikes! Now I remember all the things I wanted to get done before shows started up again. That's the good news. The bad is that I'm out of time, the van gets packed tomorrow! If it isn't already done, it's probably not going to happen. I'm in the midst of frantically making the jewelry I haven't been making for the last 6 months... When will I learn...

I have a clock in my studio that says:
"If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would get done."

oh me. You have my sympathy. It is so hard to motivate without that deadline noose. Best wishes this weekend.
