WA-PAH!

I don't know why the title of this is "WA-PA!" I sorta just liked the way it sounded.
SO yesterday I got my first order from someone I completely don't know. Problem was--the tank she ordered runs a bit small so I had to go find a new one to put the same thing on. (well, not the SAME thing-- its really close--actually better). Not only did I make her a brand new hooty-owl tank, but I made another one in yellow to sell at the show, and a gray tank with a completely different applique that is totally awesome, AND a new tote! I'll have pictures to update everyone on tomorrow hopefully.

In other news, I signed up for my first semester of graduate classes last week and am STILL waiting on my advisor to approve the schedule. She's awesome... she sent me an e-mail today telling me that she doesn't have the GA schedule ready yet because she usually just waits until classes start for that. She threw in there that she knows it likely makes me crazy. The woman knows me well already.

And one more thing-- I was talking to a good friend last night who does education stuff for the Arts Council here in town and we got into a conversation about Craft fairs. she was trying to talk me into applying for Cider Days to have a booth and I confided in her that I was scared of being part of the "craft" population around here... you know... country-bumpkin crafty-ness? Lots of maroons and navy blues and whites and gigham? YUCK! I am fine with being thought of as a grandma-y-craftster, but not a "crafty person"... you know what I mean? There is such a difference between 'grandma' and 'crafty'

Of course I don't know why I call it "grandma-y" when I am nowhere close to even having my own children yet, let alone calling myself "grandma-y". I guess I just like fabrics that are "grandma-y..." ah, I digress again.
