Mateel Arts & Music Report

Success! A good time was had by all, and sales couldn't have been much better. Woot! I can always count on my SoHum peoples to come through. Really fun to see everyone... thanks to everybody who visited my little booth over the weekend!

The weather turned out great, even too hot for me. A tiny bit of drizzle, but mostly it was sticky humid. The sun did come out here and there, so we were able to achieve that good summer festival feeling. I was about as close to the stage as one could get. I love being by the stage, but being SO close it was pretty loud even for me. Especially at breakdown time when the metal band played. Kinda hurt my head.

I had a few hiccups with my girl party/helper plan. Sigh. But hey, I gave it a shot. Anyway... I did have some friends hang out for a bit, had enough help to do some shopping on Sunday which was a luxury. I was on my own for setup and tear down and that was a little rough. But the crazy sales, cool neighbors and friendly customers kept my attitude in check. 

I also scored some sweet Mermaid booty... in the form of a handmade bead necklace from my neighbors, and the coveted Carnival Girl pendant. Woohoo! A few years back I got a couple of her pendants for my two best friends and regretted not getting one for myself. So now I have one and the world is right again.  I also picked up a few items for a certain bff who is turning 40 tomorrow, but they're top secret. OH and the pan flute with Andean music CD was left in my booth by a customer. So, I'm thinking of making a 'pile of stuff left in my booth' raffle prize for the wedding. I already have a Gold Beach wine glass, who knows what else I can score by then?

So now I am recovering and making to-do lists for the Tour. Also, I suddenly have a bunch of inquiries for orders... I think a day spent updating my web site could be a good way to go. Onward!

It was so fun to get to hang with you for just a little bit. I LOVE my sweet mermaid cap and get tons of compliments when I wear it. Good luck with the tour. Can't wait to hear all about it.

Ditto Kristi, I was just going to tell you the same about my necklace. I have been wearing it every day! It was fun to see you as well, sorry if I talked your ear off. Ha. Over tired and over stimulated makes a goofy combo for me.
