I made it back to the Bellaire Art Fair Sunday, only 1 hr. to set up. I unloaded all my stuff, and sopping wet stuff,grrr... and layed everything out to dry! I needed all day to go through everything and find out what got damaged and I was surprised that everything was in pretty good shape, especially my 3d pieces that got soaked, didn't get ruined once they dried out, but I would not recommend my pieces to survive a thunderstorm,(I was lucky) but they are definately durable to moisture!
My friend and fellow Etsy pal, Diane (http://dsullivancr2.Etsy.com) turned up and helped me get up my tent, thank God for her! She had brought a few of her precious items & also set up her tent. I never had the chance to even mosey on over to see her for the rest of the day.
Everything kept blowing over due to the wind and also I was sorting out all my things. It was a gorgeous day though. Some of the things that I use to hold up my prints got pretty messed up, oh well, I used them that day anyway as customers kept coming up & those pieces kept falling down & I kept putting them back up and then they'd fall down again.....I finally got finished setting up & it was time to go home! What? Geez. Oh well..."Happy Face...Happy Thoughts! Tra la la!"
Anyway, I actually did pretty good with my sales, considering! Then, Diane helped me load all my stuff and helped me with my tent!!! What a sweetheart!!!
Then everybody had driven away and I got in my jeep and my car wouldn't start....No problem...... "Happy Face...Happy Thoughts! Tra la la!" Compared to Saturday, nothing could have bothered me. I mean nothing like my car not starting. What's the big deal? I called Diane as she just left & neither one of us knew how to jump a car.. exactly. I then called my Dad & he came right over. And he didn't know how to open his hood, and I couldn't figure it out either. "Happy Face...Happy Thoughts! Tra la la!"
Well all of a sudden an angel appeared disguised as a young man and helped us. My car started right up and wallah!!! I be headin' home to my ranch in a concrete building!
All is well now, except for me. I kinda, well I really couldn't move this morning when I woke up. Felt like an 18 wheeler ran over me. I had bruises, blisters, & ant bites all over me. So what did I do today? Stayed in bed the entire day and slept. I'm feeling a bit better now, and decided to visit my computer before crawling into bed again.
