|Newest abandoned find- must return in spring|
So since we (I) last spoke- seriously I am getting light headed, I have to grab my foods- I have done a lot of the things. Oh yeah, that is much better- a small stack of pringles does not cut it for lunch... First off today I - after weeks of quite the rigamarole and a lot of angst and indecision and such- took some framed photos up to Fanatical Fish in Butternut. This has been in the works for over 2 years I believe, but it took me retiring before I could manage to make it happen. And I understand why- trying to decide what to print, where to get it framed, which cards I wanted to produce for selling (a whole additional story), finding all the bits and pieces and ordering and managing and of course I am taking more photos and going on adventures.... and I have turned into a squirrel apparently and am distracted by shiny things and moving objects. My brain exhausts me. I spend a lot of time chasing my tail me thinks.
I had school down to a science. I was semi organized, had a badillion lessons in my head for ages 4-18, could manage 30 children all doing something different, with art supplies and interruptions. But trying to do things in a way that is appropriate for a little side-hustle business is WAY beyond my ability. Snap decisions- I got that covered. Thought out plans and income management..... gurl (or boy) please.... I have more photos to take. But fortunately I talk to anyone who will listen to me about it and I have good advisors in my life. One of them has called me a squirrel more than once lately but I'm good with that. It makes me smile.

After delivering my prints this morning, I decided that having an abandoned building calendar to sell at the Butternut Community Christmas thing (veering off onto another tangent) along with my cards would be a great idea. So I began making that when I got home and that is NEVER fast, plus I need to have all 3 of my calendars done by Sunday because there is a 50% off sale and that needs to happen. SO I stopped everything after the first calendar was ordered and got myself something to eat and wrote this craziness out.

Then I think about how probably I should get a website and update the facebook business page I have with photos and then I am thinking maybe I should go play a computer game even though I have a ton of other things I need to do.
Nothing happens fast in the photography world apparently, especially when you live no where near anything that can assist you in having a finished product. Oh well, I finally had the framing issue come together, I have the calendar ordered and I plan to work on the other calendars tomorrow. Pop open that bottle of white that is in my fridge. Edit tonight. Oh wait, I better reverse that order. Put the cards into their little sleeves and such.
If you want a calendar, and some people have wanted them before- message or email me. I have an abandoned building one and I will put together an artsy one if people are interested. Because I enjoy torturing myself apparently. If you want to go to Butternut for their little Christmas thing- that is Saturday, 12/7 from 10 - 2. I will be at Fanatical Fish with my little card table of cards. Isn't that a nice symmetry?
Otherwise I want you to get out there and find the joy in your life! Because I feel like mine is getting more joyful again, now that the horror that was the beginning of this year has faded a little. And I am planning already a few joyful events in 2020! YAY! #bringit
