I'm getting a little nervous because I have 6 shows on the calender for July. Being a 'one man band' it's a lot of pressure to get the work done. It seems although I work all week just to replenish the stock I sold the weekend before.

I am kind of glad it's raining outside. Makes me not feel so bad for missing out on a beautiful summer day and I save an hour by not having to walk the dogs. Maybe I actually WILL catch up on work today!

The thing that I am most concerned about is the All Good Music Festival that I was accepted to. It is a HUGE foot in the door to this and other music festivals and it is right up my alley since I got my start selling my necklaces at music concerts. Thing is, I don't know what to expect as far as foot traffic and sales. I have never done a show of this caliber before. Am I going to sell $2000 in merch in the 3 days or $10,000? If it's closer to the latter then I am not even close with what I have made in stock! Will the 4 shows I have before All Good deplete my stock before I can make enough for that weekend? What supplies will I need for that weekend that I don't already have? Extension cords, lights, fire extinguisher, new signs, more business cards? (...and the list goes on and on) Will all this stuff fit in my little Honda Fit?. Oy, it's too much too think about. (although I was up from 1:45 am to 4am doing just that)

I'll try not to let this photo from last year's All Good freak me out too much ;)
Time to get my spoon on! Wish me luck!!
