Got the box of canvases for the Melissa Shirley trunk show today. Hooray!!
However, the public doesn't realize what that box symbolizes. First, I have to unpack the canvases; check them off the invoice; and then price them. Then, I carry them to the shop (of course, I had to do everything I mentioned before at home, because this is the season and today I waited on customers--even more hoorays!). All this while preparing dinner for my Darling Husband. Tonight it was shish-kebob with rice pilaf. I love it because it gives me an opportunity to chop and vent my frustrations (take that, Mrs. I don't like that color!). I chop and assemble the pilaf and kebobs and he grills after he has stapled price tags on the canvases. Marvelous division of labor.
The good/bad part of a trunk show like one from Melissa Shirley is that there are so many canvases that it is not humanly possible to check off and price them in one evening--so tomorrow night we will be having chicken on the grill for dinner so I can play a cameo with the vegetables and finish pricing and checking everything off. Then Thursday I get to climb around the shop and hang the canvases. If you're in the area, please come in and admire my handiwork and Melissa's artistry. The show officially starts Saturday--lights, camera, action!!
