Making something simple like these earrings or the Folio pieces that I add resin decoration to are fine. Those are pretty cut and dried. Not much concentration needed. But finding images and "found objects" for the Altars and Folios on demand? - YUK!
Now if I had a huge stock of lovely ephemera and interesting bits of flotsam and jetsom - it might be a different story. But since that's not the case - I'm taking a cue from Miss Doris Day while prepping for my show this weekend. Que Sera, Sera! What will be, will be. I have enough to make a nice, full display and a few pieces to hold back for when something sells. Not as much as some vendors will be bringing, I'm sure. But I have so many more un assembled components in my stash, that I'll have no problem getting ready for the next show (if I decide to do one).
Now I'm moving on to the business side of things. Taking pictures of everything to make into a thumbnail contact sheet with prices so that when someone else is manning the booth as I take a little break, they'll know what to charge if tag gets lost. Ordering three big photos to put on a screen that I'm bringing as a prop. Buying tissue paper and bags. Seeing if I have enough charge slips. All the boring necessities. I do hope to see some of you lovely Los Angeleans in the audience at the show. You can download a "get in free" ticket here.
