Trying to officially start the Do It Your SELFies Costume Photo studio is so much fun!
Really. And for true.
Actually no. I'm tearing my hair out and stressing BIG TIME.
One reason is that my mom texted me yesterday (that would be mom of "Dad's Tighty-Whiteys Steal the Show" fame) I had the dates wrong in the newsletter I sent out to like a billion people, and media outlets.
Sigh. Thing is...before I sent it out I checked and rechecked (well, in my head anyway). But, I"m sure that media people, just like you, are smart and can figure out what date I mean, and cut me some slack because by the time I was checking and rechecking, my brain was mush from sitting in front of the computer screen for hours.
And you wouldn't BELIEVE the stuff I have! Mein Gott I have soooo much STUFF and costumes and SHOES...GOD..THE SHOES....
My main stress is, I suppose, the fear that I'll try to do all this promotion and no one will show up. You know, kinda like when you were little and you were afraid no one was going to show up to your birthday party? Or..ahem...was that just me? Seriously, I was always afraid of that.
Anyhooters, now I'm opening a really cool fun new business at my studio and I'm afraid no one will show up. This brings to mind, of course, our Good Friend Pope Pius II who threw and entire CRUSADE and no one showed up. And I thought no one showing up at my birthday parties would have been terrifyingly humiliating. But I digress...there I go with popes again (being the church scholar that I am. Really, I am. Published and all. Even given tours in St. Peter's Basilica and Papal Rome, but again, I digress).
So other than that fear, I'm trying to figure out how this will run smoothly as far as people checking in and out, where they put their clothes, where all the costumes are hung up so I can see the entire studio (lest some asshole decides they're going to try to flip upside-down on a pole), where can I put all the shoes, but how can I do this so I can break it down asap and put the costume room back together quickly for the parties that we do at the studio....
Don't get me wrong, owning your own business IS fun and rewarding, but sometimes it can just be SOOO overwhelming.
Well, on that note, I'm going to go eat some dark chocolate covered expresso beans. They're very tasty. And energizing. And they're "dark chocolate" which means they're completely healthy. And I got them at Trader Joe's, which means they're EXTRA healthy.
Tootles, and hope to see you all here at the Costume Studio!
