Yesterday the online orders started coming in. “Oh, wow, we’re having a great day,” I thought. Then they kept on coming and the reality of it set in… “HOLY CRAP, I HAVE TO FILL THESE ORDERS NOW!” So I slept in the workshop again. Notice my little nesting area; between two heaters that were blasting just to cut the chill of the night. I fell asleep to Family Guy on Hulu.
Luckily I already purchased a tooth brush and toothpaste from my last overnight stay.
Had to give a Mommy shout-out. This is me and my Momma, Jean. I love this photo! She called to check on me many times last night to make sure I was ok. And right now she is taking a break from her own work as a General Contractor to help me with tagging T-shirts. We weren’t expecting this kinda response at our shows this year, but we are all very happy.
It’s because of my Mom, and other great women in my life, that I am drawn to very strong women. I don’t like too much fru-fru, and I love independence and intelligence. My babysitters when I was growing up were whatever trade worker she sat me next to at one of her construction sites. It could have been next to a plumber with a blowtorch or a electrician working on a circuit breaker.
Much love to Mom today! Without her influence I wouldn’t be braving my own course or even know how to use half the tools I work with on a daily basis.
