so, the lemonade fair was a bust. the only non-family member i sold to was a lady who came in and bought three of my little frames for her brother who grows vegetables. i had a lot of people who took my card, so hopefully that will help. a lot of my problem was the fact that st cloud is a working town and not many people are out to buy. the second was presentation. i need to get together a place where i can hang the pictures. lord knows i certainly have enough inventory now. *sigh*
jane and i drove the 12 hours to west lafayette, IN, to help liz and doug get sort of settled in their new place. their place is huge!! as soon as jane has her pictures up, i’ll link to it or something. we also took pictures of random signs and billboards on the way down and the way back (mostly in wisconsin). did you know the deer signs in WI have demented deer on them? the deer actually has four legs and two antlers on it! (next time you’re out driving, take a look at the deer signs. the deer have two legs and one antler.)
we went to chicago, where the tax is around 10.5%!! nuts! we ordered pizza, drinks, and an appetizer and the tax was nearly $4.00, we couldn’t figure it out til we found out how high the tax was. so we had really good pizza. the place is one of the oldest in the area, and the booth was CRAMPED. OMG. my boobs were sitting on the table. but, the pizza was awesome and filling. nummy! we also spent about 3-4 hours at ikea, where they did NOT have my favorite kitchen. i was so disappointed. that kitchen makes me so happy.
i ended up driving through chicago on the way there, and it was like driving in the cities, but a little more cramped. there was massive road construction, which was annoying, but i got through it and that’s all that mattered. doug drove in chicago the next day when we went downtown and stuff, and let’s just say i’m glad it was him and not me!!
so, that was about it. other than that, i’m just sitting here hanging out. if anyone want to buy some art, let me know. i have plenty!!
