After a long weekend of fun socializing (and the inevitable realizing I'm too old for that much energy exertion) I decided to take a day to recuperate! I somehow managed to sleep in way past when I think "sleeping in" should involve (which is okay since I've been fighting off the flu for the last while) and once I got up and was rested I was ready to tackle the day!
Hooray for productivity right? Well...wrong. Instead I spent the afternoon/evening inside cleaning and all my other plans were damped (literally) by a day long rain storm! Why is it that my days off always have bad weather? Oh well - it did end with a wonderful rainbow! Check out the view from our front yard:
Isn't it brilliant? I love how eerie the streets looked with the super dark rain clouds and bright sun off the houses. I was much too close to the rainbow to get it all on one picture, but you can see some of the outer double rainbow action in there too! How nice!
I spent the rest of the evening planning out a whole slew of fun craft projects to prepare me for the craft show season (I'm hoping to get into the Artisan's Square show this summer at the farmer's market in town)! I figure I'll pump myself up with a bunch of small, fun, lower and mid priced items to really stock up my table and then work on some of the more tedious (and what I usually find kind of annoying when I'm pressured) projects later on when there is less stress to make them! Sounds like a plan right? Oh - and not to worry - I'll be sure to show you my crafts as I get working on them. What do you think I should work on for the farmer's market craft scene this year? Do you think I'll get in? Anyone else do busy weekly shows out there with tips for me? Hmm...I better get to work...
