Give Me A Week and I’ll Give You Small Blessings

This was the endless week!  A full week of back to school mornings with my son that followed an intense nonprofitable weekend at the Tiburon Festival.  All I can say is that I am thankful for my part time job teaching art in Sonoma and that I am looking forward to my regular pay checks! Another small blessing is that one of my painting students that I teach to has told several of her friends about me and they have arranged to take a one day workshop.   If they like it, they might take more.

Though the Tiburon Festival turned out to cost me more then I made, I am glad I did it.   It was my first  festival where I had to bring my own display system, set up and sell among other artists.   I lost a sale because I did not have a credit card machine and I learned that I need to create a more interesting display to pull people in (such as painting a demo).   I did get a lead from another artist about where to get good deal on a credit machine.

Part of this last week was spent setting up my classroom and this next week I start teaching and I start grad school.  Life is winding up!

    I loved seeing you – you look happy, pretty and full of life so there must be something about this dream of yours of going back to grad school that agrees with you.

    Have you considered doing farmers markets, they seem to do pretty well there. Just a thought.
    I LOVE that chicken.
