Things to do List

I have been trying to get some egg gourds ready for the Easter season. I have two sets in my etsy shop and one set of smaller egg gourds on the work bench ready to be dyed. The work is slow because of all of the tiny detail in each egg.
I am so excited! I got my first batch of advertising bookmarks last night. My loving husband made them for me and they look great! Now I just need to make a holder for them and see if I can set them out at the library. Pretty blue tassels and all. :)
I also need to look into getting a banner made before I do any shows. I would like to have my logo on it but that my put the price way too high. I want it to look sharp so I fit in with the rest of the SHOWME TEAM.
I may be out of business if I don't get some supplies. The gourds we bought last fall still have a long way to go before they are dry enough to use. I am running out of gourds and some mean person keeps outbidding me on EBay! I only have 5 full size, hard shell, gourds left and I still need to make at least one more basket before Easter.
Enough for today- I better get busy.

I went to my first ShowMe Etsy meeting last night at J Buck's in Clayton. The food was good and the company was great! The group consisted of about 16 creative minds all working at top speed. You could almost see the rays of energy streaking around the table. There were never less than three discussions going on. It was a learning experience that's for sure.
