Busy doesn't describe it adequately, but it is self-inflicted, and therefore I can't really complain about it.
It all started more than six months ago when I realized that I double-booked myself for this weekend. At first it didn't seem like a bad idea, since one show started on Friday and the other on Saturday. But, that was then, and I was now left to deal with the consequences.
My weekend officially started on Thursday, when I drove to Lyndhurst Castle to set up for the Fall Crafts at Lyndhurst. I decided to take a space in the large tent, as to avoid needing two tents, but that didn't work out well on two fronts: I still needed a frame to set up the space, and the big tents at Lyndhurst are set-back, all the way in the back, and the traffic is considerably less. At least that's what we saw today, Friday. Hopefully, it will improve during the weekend.
After I finished setting up Lyndhurst, and left my partner there, I had to find another tent. My good friend Heather, from The Sewing Loft, was gracious enough to let me borrow hers. After 2 hours in accident traffic, I was at Anderson Park, setting up for Fine Art and Crafts at Anderson Park. This felt good, because it was right in our backyard, and because the press we received last week in The Montclair Times. Tiring, nonetheless.
See you on the flip side.
