Well I just give up with trying to get my blog photos to show up on Facebook. Today there will be no photos. I don't think. We'll see.
My new canopy finally arrived. Not that it took a long time, but I've been meaning to order one for a long time now and just never did until recently. I wish the snow would melt so I could put it up in the back yard ~ Husby thinks we could clear out our rumpus room and set it up there, but that just seems wrong. I should probably check it out somehow to make sure everything is included in the box and that there are no tears or other flaws. Of course I got it from a reputable source so I'm sure it's wonderful. The fact is I'm just eager to see how much easier it is to put up compared to my old canopy, which was a hand-me-down from another hardcore art/craft show circuit person.

The other good thing that happened was the Midwest Art Fair publication arrived. I know I get all excited about that every year and have probably written a post about it each time I get a copy. But it's so much fun! It's a great source for crafters and artists to find events and festivals at which to show off their wares and also fun for the art/craft show enthusiast who likes to shop at venues such as parks and historic buildings rather than icky strip malls. I've been looking through it whenever I can sneak a moment from the duties of my day job. The 2011 Events page of this blog will be filling up soon if all goes well.

Still another good thing that happened is I finally got my tookus down to the bank to talk to the guy about what I need to do to accept credit cards at all those events and festivals I'm going to apply to. Most of my items are under $20, but you people out there don't walk around with cash anymore ~ you've got that dang debit card thing going. Unless I have some kind of terminal to process those cards I won't get your business. So tuck that card into your back pocket when you come to see me in person. More than likely I'll be able to process it by then.
The last, but certainly not least good thing that happened ~ my Etsy shop is open. I know, you heard about that before, but I'm still kind of excited about it. For those of you new to this blog, I've had an Etsy shop for a long time, but decided to change it up and move to a different location (from AuntieBOnline to AuntieBsWax). One of the latest items listed is this:

There you have it. Gratitude for four things today. If you're grateful, you're happy.
Oh, and about those pictures? You can see them here, but you probably won't be able to seem them on my Facebook status updates because I'm such a drutz (a word used by my German grandma meaning numbskull). Oh well.
