i started the day at church--forgetting we were on the schedule to be the greeters for the 9:30 service. (make no mind that i do the scheduling!) i get into the sanctuary and realize i have no reading glasses--i was able to follow along only when i could place the book of common prayer on the pew in front of me. (it's rite 1 for lent--not as familiar to me.) great sermon.
after church we went to pick-up the trusty, but old, suburban (our most recent vehicle to visit don and jason--our favorite mechanics).
then to the shop to work on the display challenge. "challenge" is appropriate. they sent me the merchandise i'm allowed to use--none of it came from my existing vendors. at first, it didn't look like enough inventory to create a decent display, but when i started to try to put it all together, it was much more than i thought. i'm allowed to incorporate props, but no merchandise from other vendors. it's much more complicated than i anticipated--especially since it's so little variety with which to work. i wish i could show you pictures, but it's against the rules. suffice to say i look forward to sharing it with you as soon as i'm able. of course, if you come into the shop in the next few days, you'll see it. (hint, hint)
