1 day to halloween, 2 days to art show, 3 days to curling up with the oh so lovely vampire book , breaking dawn

art? well ... not actually painting .... 
but i got nearly 80 canvases ready for my saturday show ...
made sure they were all signed, had painted edges, had writing on the backs .... 
then i made an inventory sheet ... with pictures ... since my titles are a bit quirky and repetitive, i don't really know what anything is called ... but i can keep track with a little pic of the art ... so that i can come home after the fest and keep my records of what has sold up to date .....
i loaded, with child labor, all the art into the car .... also loaded in the big metal grids that make up my booth walls .... 
i figured out the three extra paintings i had ... they were on my blog, but i'd never loaded them on my flickr site .... i use flickr as a catalog .... it dates when things were painted ..... if i'm looking for a particular painting i can find it in the appropriate set (like flowers, fruit, mona) ..... so ... these three canvases that showed up with no record of them .... i had to pour through the zillion and seven photos i have on iphoto .... and there they were .... and now they are on flickr ... and filed away appropriately ... you can see them here ... where i blogged them but apparently didn't remember to flickr them ... you might remember them ... i clearly did not .... 
tomorrow: 
-go to the bank, for change for the fest
-go to the grocery store for a post halloween breakfast (we have a bunch of spend the nighters)
-gather my art show stuff (pens,signs, receipts, duct tape, advil, mints....you know, the vital stuff)
-clean my house for a swarm of halloween dinner visitors... and spend the nighters .... 
-at 3, go set up my booth
-be home by 5.30 for dinner and halloween ghoul prep 

i'll try and blog tomorrow night so you can see what my booth looks like pre show .... if i don't have time to set it all the way up in my short window of time, i'll go in early saturday to finish ..... 

tra la la .... busy, busy, busy .... happy, happy, happy .... 

so ... new subject .... what are you passing out to trick or treaters? i usually buy something i don't love so i won't bet so tempted ..... this year i got smarties and a tootsie assortment ...neither a fave of mine .... both adored by my kiddos... though, i do adore the dots in the tootsie pack...but my fave? .... i love twizzlers .. hopefully i'll score a few from the kids when they get home tomorrow! 

happy halloween ....

as I sit and type, I know that you are there selling tons-o-art! how amazing and cool is that?!? can't wait to see pics and hear about the event ...

...ps I don't think I ever mentioned, but I've been reading the series, too ... I've actually been trying to hold off till Breaking Dawn comes out in paperback ... can you say "self-imposed-torture"?!? I might just break down and see if it's at the library ... :)
