It happened again!
The Rose Bowl suddenly snuck up on me and I was (wait for it!) UNPREPARED!
So I ran around like a crazy person finishing up tons of projects while – never one to focus on just one aspect of my life at a time – simultaneously closing the run of the play I was in.
Planning? I don’ t need no stinking planning!
I decided to make use of the natural outside light rather than trying to stage something indoors but I think all I managed to do was make it look like they had just escaped and were making a run for it.
Keeping with my Frenchy theme I had some solid oak chairs that I had purchased for a song a very long time ago. In my homage to Miss Mustard Seed I had splurged on some French Grain Sack material and gave a shot at that vintagy, frenchy, shabby, look (apparently the chairs also made a break for it).
Some vintage Halloween goodness,
And I was all set.
The people showed up!
Nobody bought anything!
I went from September being my best month ever to October being my worst month ever. Ugh.
I understand markets are unpredictable (hello my 401K) but sheesh!
Ah well. Onward!
At least Etsy sales have been robust and now, when I suddenly realize in early November that, “oh my god the Rose Bowl is next week!” I won’t have to do much!
(that would be the lemonade-I-made-from-lemons-half- filling-my-glass perspective)
