What's Up Wednesday? Oh So Many Things!
Once again I have failed to do my blog review. Today I have a really good reason. My Grandmother-In-Law had to be moved into a full care retirement community last Wednesday. Monday we moved a lot of things over the border (couch, washer/dryer, storage) from Bellingham to our place. Yesterday I spent the whole day helping my Mother-in-Law to clean and organize the place. It was great getting new things but I'd trade it all to not have Nan in a full care facility. She's doing great though, and she needs the added care. I am completely wiped out after these two days... I even canceled my tickets to the "Parent's Bloggers Unite" tonight. (#pbuyvr in case you want to know what I'm talking about on Twitter). I'm sad that I can't make the event but I have so much to do this week!
What I'm Reading
Ads and websites to see what Swap Meets, Christmas Fairs, and Craft fairs are out there
What I'm Writing/Drawing
Still adding a lot to my Etsy shop. Feeling the pressure now, because I have a ton of things to get printed and some of those aren't ready to be printed yet. My first show is on the 20th and I need business cards, illustration prints, poster, greeting cards, small coloring books and maybe a few more of the big coloring books. The only things that aren't ready for print are the greeting cards, so that will be my big rush job this week. I'm also working hard at booking some of these shows so I know what I'm doing when. I will be posting shows under a new section of my webpage ( http://daniduckart.weebly.com/) in the next coupe of days. I just got accepted for Christmas in Cloverdale December 6&7th!

What Else I've Been Up To
He was so good at his GG's when we were moving and cleaning out her apartment Monday & Tuesday!
Working Out/Being Healthy
I've been doing a TON of cleaning. This counts, doesn't it?
Computer is fixed. All is well with the world again. Trying to set up an account with Square so I can take credit cards. It's been a failed attempt so far. I hope I can fix this soon.
