Today was the first day that I spent working in the museum by myself. It’s not near as daunting as it sounds. I work in a historical home, so you never feel too overwhelmed. I also got my first paycheck from them today too so that was fantastic. Things are going a lot more smoothly than I thought they would be with this whole non-stop work schedule thing. I feel like I’ve reached a manageable balance, which is kind of surprising. Granted, I’m only 2 weeks in with 8 more to go, so maybe I should see how I feel by the end of October.
I was able to get a couple of outfit shots and general photos of the museum today before I opened. I over estimated my travel time and ended up at work an hour early, so I had some free time.

I figured out the problem I’m having with my camera is the self-timer. When I don’t use it the photos come out perfect, even in low light. When I do use it they are just awful. Hopefully I’ll be able to figure out some sort of balance between the two.
Oh, it’s that time of year again to start signing up for craft shows. I’m getting really excited about the whole prospect of it this year. I had a blast last year and I’d really like to make some money for ALS research. My grandmother’s birthday is January 10th and I wanted to make a $500 donation in her name, so I really need to get going! I feel like it’s a pretty attainable goal with selling toys, pillow, and accessories around the holidays. Last year I got about half of that from one of the craft shows I did with just jewelry, so fingers crossed this year is a little better.
