Back at Saturday Market and egg mess

signcloseup

Today was my first day back to selling at the Eugene Saturday Market this selling season. I had been trying to come up with a good design for a banner to have printed for our booth for years now but just never had the computer skills or a good idea of what to put on it. And then it hit me-make it out of wire! Nick was doubtful at first but after I made the lettering out of aluminum he did an excellent job sanding and painting the wooden board and painstakingly drilled tiny holes and thread thin gauge aluminum wire around the letters to attach the words to the sign. He then super glued the little tied wire bits in the back and had to admit in the end that it looked pretty good.

The weather was perfect and sales were  respectable for a long hard days work.

Yesterday I pulled off the supermom egg dying evening. That Star Wars egg dying kit was somewhat of a let down .The “tattoos” for the eggs sucked. After looking it up online I found a slew of pissed off parents who had a new reason to hate Lucas for allowing the “Star Wars” franchise to be associated with this piece of crap product.But the kids still had fun.

And Max made a most excellent mess. Yes, he is pouring egg dye. Yes, it did spill all over him, the table, the floor and and the chair.

He did come up with some nifty effects.
