Haven't posted in weeks. We have a "new" (actually used---our version of new) computer tower and we are still working the bugs out. We are trying to switch things over which has pretty much gone smoothly, just very slowly. Hopefully, we will put our old one at the store and I will finally have internet access at the store. It has been 2 years there without a computer. I know sometimes not having technology around makes things better. I paint all day. But, unfortunately, I need to work on my website and so on and then I have to do all that work when I get home. I spend so much time on the computer at home that I need to be doing that at work.
Well getting ready for Mothers Day already. We have opted out of our usual April and May shows due to rising fees at the shows. We will be doing a show at the end of May but that is it. Don't understand why fees are going up when sales are going down. I know the schools are probably trying to make up the loss somehow but charging the crafters more does not make sense to me. If anything, they should not charge the public admission and then they would get more people, sell more food, have higher 50/50s etc. I have only done 2 shows so far this season when I normally do 10 to 15.
