Wednesday, All costumes are here!

     The final costume order came in last night so I think we are safe on that front.  I finished the scarecrow yesterday and I am almost done with the Tin Man.  I have a ton of things to pack and take to the truck as the shop now looks like a tornado hit it!  So the first thing I am going to do this morning is get that back to organized.  I have several little pairs of tap shoes to paint and glitter and 4 baby bonnets to cover and then I am going to try to cut out the two witches this afternoon.

     I do have some things that I need to sew for the shop also.  I teach at 5 but want to be at the studio at 4:30 to try and get rid of more costumes, the less mess on Saturday the better.  Hubs almost has the scenery done, just a few more leg stands.  Slowly but surely it will all get done.

   My mom wants to come for the recital, so I am not sure when I will go get her and that has the schedule up in the air. I am anxious for her to get here as she can be a big help. I need to run to Joanns this morning not looking forward to that, but I have a few customers coming and I have to avoid their arrivals.

     I also have another Wedding dress coming in this afternoon, work, work, I am blessed with work.  I am still trying to lower expenses here, but it is tough, gas really takes a bite and so does medications.  We were also hit by repair bills and small doctor bills this last month which added up to over $300.00.  Some of these were only $15.00 but still I was shocked by all the little things that we needed repaired.  This is what happens when you get old and your body and house start to fall apart at the same time.

     I am off to see you know who (not the bathroom)

Have a great and productive day!




  1. I was listening to Pandora at work, and Judy Garland's Over The Rainbow came on. I thought of you. :)

  2. You are running away from the customers arriving??

  3. Yeah that is what I do I avoid my customers. No I really meant need to avoid missing them and I did.

  4. the Wizard!! Sounds like the shop is one BUSY place!! But also sounds like you have things under control. :)
