Wow...I'm totally exhausted!

I've just returned home from a VERY full day! Me and a friend of mine went to a Pride festival about two hours from where I live and set up a vendor booth for the day. We sold my t-shirts, wristbands, teddybears, pride type gifts, etc. Not only did we sell shirts that I had pre-made, but I also did shirts on the spot from out of my catalog (same designs as on my website). This entailed standing over a very hot t-shirt heat press all day and making shirts.

We left my house at 8:00 this morning and I just walked back in the door at 10:30 pm. We got lost both going to the festival and returning home... I have been on the GRAND TOUR of every small, back-road country, little town in Oblivion (which are in no short supply around here). For goodness sakes, at one point we passed through a little town where an actual amish horse and buggy were tied up outside of a convience store :)

All in all, it was a good day. We were busy from start to finish with barely enough time to stop and use the restroom or grab a bite to eat. But, the we made some good pocket money and came home about 70 shirts lighter. Plus, got to listen to a bit of live entertainment thoughout the day and gather a few leads on new wholesale customers.

I'm rambling! And, I need to go take a shower...I smell like a billy goat :) Sorry I didn't even have time to snap any pictures for sharing. More details to come tomorrow.

Are you implying that a Billy Goat is something that you wouldn't especially want to smell like? LOL

Billy Goats are cuddly. In a "get your horn out of my side" sorta way...

Nice place you have here! I don't know how I haven't been here before!
