Please come see me tomorrow at the Univ. Street Fair

Tomorrow is the big day! My first festival!

I'm a little worried about Jer. He's decided not to sleep again until tonight so he can be ready to leave at 5:30am tomorrow. That means he got home from the late shift at 2am and stayed awake, and plans to stay in that state through this evening. When I left this morning he was drinking coffee.

I'm excited and a little nervous, but I've done everything I can think of to get ready. It will be a huge learning opportunity and I just want to have as much fun with it as I can.

Last night I made table signs with the prices listed, I added product info sheets to my nine 18x24 mats (13x19 prints inside). I packed a bin full of 8x10 prints in 11x14 mats and 5x7 prints in 8x10 mats. Still need to pack the 4x6 prints in 8x10 mats and note cards. Bookmarks can stay in their cardboard box.

I did not unpack the awning or organize my canopy stuff. It's pretty well organized anyway. I called American Express this morning for some merchant info and yesterday I got the "bank" to make change with -- in the event that cash is still king.

I bought a small hobby kit from Walgreens that included pliers and a couple of screwdrivers. I bought heavy duty paper clips and duct tape. I grouped more stuff together, including my table cloths and print bins. I still only have 1 chair, so Jer and I will have to take turns sitting. I plan to stand most of the time anyway. He will probably be exhausted.

I don't know if I've done enough, but I feel as if I've done as well as I could under the circumstances.
