Jumping Through Hoops!


Am I jumping through hoops you ask?

Can you say Alley-Oop!
 
Between Blogger continuing to be a real PITA challenge, upcoming events, and life throwing a few unexpected curve balls in the direction of the Casita de Trash...I'd say I'm the star of this Dog And Pony Side-Show!

Watch me pull a rabbit outta my hat!


I'm busy gathering the best crap quality merchandise I can for my space and I know all the vendors at Winnie & Tulula's are doing the same.  We had such a great time last year (think cake and champagne) and this year's promises to be just as much fun!


The original Paper Cowgirls Art Retreat is coming up in June as well.  This year I'm pickled tink to be included on Vendor Night!  'Course this means more work for moi and I'm knee deep and up to my armpits in alligators, digging in boxes for things I've been hoarding saving for just the right occasion...and I do believe this is the market place for my treasures!  I'm excited, but a little overwhelmed.  I've never done a one-day-down-and-dirty event before, but hopefully a smile and my wares will carry me through!



 I know I promised y'all a prom, but failed to deliver.  Trust me...it takes a lot for me to bypass a party, but on top of everything that's going on in my life right now...I just couldn't pull it off.  I promise y'all up and down to make it up in the future...pinkie swear!

In the meantime, I'll be out of the picture and off the computer until sometime towards the end of June.  I hate it, but when you get to be my age...you gotta learn to compromise!  Even Superman has his Kryptonite...mine just happens to be SADD!



I promise I'll be back...even if the last hoop I jump through is on fire!

(Happy Birthday SweetT...one day late!)


(Thank you April and Shawn for my beautiful birthday cake!)

I am so out of your inner circle. But I do love the way you talk. I remember Junk and Disorderly from last year. I thot the name brilliant then. It HAD to have come from you. And if NOT it is so you anyway. Good luck with the exhausting projects. I don't volunteer for much myself these days.

Have fun with all your projects and have Cat Daddy drive so you can snag a nap in between locations!

I love that Junque and Disorderly! I may have to snatch that for my "sale de garage'" whatdaya think? :-) Looking forward to hearing more trash talk when you have time. I have been MIA more often than not as well, so I get it.

Hugs,
Judy

Slow down sista, breathe deeply, and last but most important pray.

Hi my sweet
Sounds like we have the same life!
Wishing you a fantastic show... sell it all!
I am in WA now and it is hard for me to post as my daughter's wireless is sloooooow. I have to go to Starbucks and post... but we are getting things ready and then it is up to Spokane for FC. I still don't know what I am doing for display!
But it will come together, it always does. My ride here was gorgeous and the Lord and I had a fabulous time.
Take it easy and many blessings today

Give all my crafty buddies a big hug, and a big one from me to you, too!

Busy girl! Wishing you success in all of this craziness. Also a VERY belated Happy Birthday! What a crummy friend I am, missing a big one. Don't catch your backside on fire jumping through those hoops girl! Wish I could jump on a plane and fly on down.

Rebecca said...

Hey Girl
I am so jealous... I mean envious... I mean glad for you, to be a vendor at Paper Cowgirls. I want to be there! But I am here... a loooong way away- I feel like I am on the other side of the world! Oh wait I am...
Happy Memorial Day!
Blessings

Now how on earth am I supposed to man my own vendor table when I'll be wanting to spend the evening knee deep in your stuff??? Can't wait to see what you bring!
