Chaos in Crafting

When I am getting ready for a craft show it is like a tornado hit the craft zone!
Things half painted, partially painted, some hanging on the walls, some inventoried, most not...I hate the paper work of inventory.
Basically CHAOS!
I have tried to enlist the help of the kids but as good as they are at helping around the house they do not enjoy doing inventory either.  So it is up to me.
So this is how the craft zone looks and my goal today is to finish up the art that is ready to be priced, inventory the lot, finish the frames that need to be painted, then start finishing up the 7 I have base coated! 
If I had workers that would do the inventory, cut and sand wood, base coat, did I mention do the inventory, set up...I would be so happy or would I?
Being the perfectionist type AA personality I would probably undo everything that was done and start again.
Maybe it is a good thing I am almost a one man show.
I do have to give my husband and dad credit for cutting wood and making frames for me.  These are things I don't necessarily know how or want to do.
Then my poor victimized husband helps me set up at shows.  Lucky for me because he has a good idea about arranging and displaying!
Thanks guys!!
My next show will be Simple Treasures in Farmington.  It always comes faster then I think and there is always so much more that I wanted done.  But I do have a bit of time.....
Enjoy your day!


  1. Hmmmm, if that is chaos looks like then what I have going on doesn't even have a name! I guess mine would be chaos on steroids... :-) I finally have to clean when I can't start another project because I cannot see the table or floor for that matter. It looks like you are very organized! Good luck in your selling venture.


  2. Hi Barb....oh no!!!!! It will all be fine....good luck at the sale...Blessings Francine.

  3. WOW! So many wonderful creations - you have been busy! Good luck at the show Barb - ENJOY! ~*~Lisa

  4. It's a lot of work but I know you love it! And just think of all the happiness you spread all around! It's so much fun to shop at craft shows and get something special like the things you make! So much better than anything we can buy in a store! Enjoy your weekend!

  5. Your chaos looks pretty darned organized to me!! Good luck with the show! Your items are AWESOME and I hope you sell out of each and every one!

  6. Okay, that is the neatest tornado of chaos I've ever seen.
