O is for...
O is for OMG!!! I 'tried' to do a craft show today but the wind was blowing 12 to 20 miles an hour with gusts up to 35. My tent kept blowing across the parking lot until I got the weights attached but the wind was determined to show me who was boss. I tried setting up my displays but a strong gust would hit and blow everything over. I had to fish my dolls out of the bushes twice and when it happened the third time I declared the wind the undefeated champion and gave up. My poor dolls were in a piles all over my tables and it looked like a war zone. The other vendors were struggling too. Even the vendors who had heavier crafts and merchandise had their tables blown over and some had breakage. Anyway, I apologized to the event coordinator and packed my tent and left. She had asked if I could just lay the dolls flat on the table, which looked terrible but just as she was making that suggestion, two of my dolls got caught in a gust of wind and blew into the booth next door. I told her that I couldn't sell anything that wouldn't stay on the tables. I packed up my girls and went home. OMG what a day.
O is also for more of my dolls, ONDINE and OLIVIA and yes, all of my dolls are hand made by me.
Good night all.
