Just Get On With It…

I’m a really good sleeper, no trouble falling or staying asleep.  So WTH is going on? It may surprise those who know me that last week I awoke at 5am, was out of bed and in my home office by 6…again I say WTH?!

My brain is on full speed; making lists, designing bracelets, pondering school assignments and counting the days for each deadline. Why now, I’ve always had deadlines, always had lots on the go, what’s different?

It’s The Market, my first Etsy Market is on May 5, and I’m a little overwhelmed by the process of getting ready: I have no idea how much stock I need, definitely more than I have but how much more?  I have to learn how to use the Square Reader (so folks can pay with plastic). And, what about displays for earrings, bracelets, cards? What about price tags, descriptions?

Thank goodness for Goodwill, stand-up CD racks ($8.00 for 2) are perfect for earrings. Michaels had a 50% off sale so the bracelet stand was affordable. That’s two things off the list.

But I don’t think 34 bracelets, 37 pairs of earrings and 131 cards are enough! Assuming I sell some…oh man, that’s  the other thing…what if no-one buys anything! Maybe I can slip a bystander a few bucks and have them loudly exclaim how wonderful the products are? That’ll work, right?

Deep breath…okay.

Sitting here freaking out isn’t going to get the work done. Where are my beads!

Wish me luck.

 

P.S. Thanks to Folksy Blog for all the advice.
