Keeping Busy!

Found an event for Saturday. It's a doggie adoption event, and as long as we have good weather, we should get a good turnout. Hoping to be able to make a couple of puppy cakes for this - puppy wee pads, treats, toys, ribbons. Think they'd do well. I'll also do some diaper and towel cakes to show and have a sign that I do custom orders. Plus my animals, Uppercase, Greeting cakes. I think I'll do a couple more journal jars and some s'mores jars. Maybe a couple of seasoning mixes, too. I may have some pet treat in a jar recipes I can do. Hmmm. Going to have to look into that one. Not sure I have enough time to do some bath bombs and bath bomb cupcakes. I'd like to do a couple of pet beds, but will need to get fabric and a couple other things first. Lost my thought on what else wanted to do! lol Yep, if I don't do a list, I totally lose what I wanted to do!
Jim's been busy on the weekends, and needs my truck. I'm just doing some last minute bookings for shows since I don't know when he'll need to use my truck and when I can get to a show. No problem since I don't make much right now at the shows. I can use the time to list on webstore and make some stuff for upcoming shows. I know one of the good ones is coming up in August, plus I got info on some car shows where I'd like to set up. Just have to keep football in mind when I book shows! It's not only the games, we have other events like feeding them before games, making sandwiches for them for game days and other things we do for the boys. I'm going to try to do all I can since it'll be his last year (*sniff, sniff...SOB*). I think after the holidays, instead of booking like mad for spring, I'll take time to do some consignment and online sales. The spring shows just haven't been profitable for me (or most people I've been talking to). Plus I'll be in the final countdown for moving, so I'll be doing the last bits of decluttering and packing things and all that goes with a distance move.
I'm trying to keep up on my facebook page (ShelszooSuperstores), and have 150 fans so far. Will have to look into doing a give away soon! Maybe a Greeting Cake for this one. Don't have many things from UL I could use since I've been doing quite a few events that want donations of what I sell. The last raffle blitz rally wiped out my supply of expressions. Hoping to add to them this month with the Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal. Add a couple of display items and get stuff I can use for the raffle blitzes.
