Zen, Tape and Spirit of Macgyver

Thursday morning, and just a few minutes to spare before I blast out the door for DAY ONE of Originals Spring Craft Sale. It was the usual sprint to the finish to get as much new work ready as possible, and then the absolute bedlam of packing up the trailer and setting up the show. The display always looks pretty passable by the time it's assembled and the work hung...but I admit the process is lacking in ZEN. We never seem to do the same lay out twice. My ever loyal and suffering hubby seems to channel the spirit of MacGyver, to somehow build the display and hang as many pieces as possible. And all this without a swiss army knife! And yesterday, we had even managed to forget the duct tape!

But this is it, the show must go on and will go on!

Heather, thank you! Thanks for the good wishes regarding the show. And yes, you should try one. It's good to leave the studio and get out with other artisans and make the odd sale too! :)
