Rochester City Lights

Yesterday Kevin, Kyle, Sara and I drove up to Rochester to view their city lights display. It's pretty cool, they have lights coating the entire building fronts down main street. So yeah it was fun. Lights are pretty, and it put me in the holiday spirit.

We then went to the Rochester Brewing Co (I think that's the name) and enjoyed a nice meal and some beers with an awesome coupon Kyle found online. Yay for being thrifty!

Other than that yesterday at work was miserable. I decided to take it upon myself to take physical inventory of our artwork which hasn't been done in I don't know how long. And I decided we need to have good pictures of all this work. Let me put this in a perspective. We have over a thousand pieces of artwork. I don't know what I'm getting myself into, but it is something that has to absolutely be done. So my first thing is, take pictures of everything and write down the info in a notebook. Then edit photos and save them under their SKU's and organize them in our HD. Then print off images of each piece and make a backup cd of the jpegs, these print offs I am then putting in binders so that clients can look at work that may be in storage. Then filing begins. Wipe out inventory in computers and input new physical noted inventory. Organize consignment sheets and redo hand written inventory sheets. File away stuff under current and previous... Oh and also get a handle on the art that is out on loan.

So yeah can you see why I have been looking frazzled. After this we are transferring our email and then I have to work on the website... then start promotional crap for our January sale. The next month is going to be tough.

Oh and get this, tomorrow is MY 200TH POST (on this blog)! Nothing special planned but a look back to why, what, when about my blogging experiences.


12 Days of Christmas
I am starting this on the 26th, so if you guys want to involve yourselves please do so!! Email me ( your pictures! You don't have to do everyday but I'd love to see your posts. I will be posting my inspired pictures in the evening of that day (around 10pm) so you have until then to send me your pic to be in that days post.

SO again here is the concept.

Create an outfit or look inspired by the 12 Days of Christmas. Here are the days for each gift.
December 26th, a Partridge in a Pear Tree
December 27th, Two Turtle Doves
December 28th, Three French Hens
December 29th, Four Calling Birds
December 30th, Five Gold Rings
December 31st, Six geese a laying
January 1s, Seven swans a swimming
January 2nd,  Eight maids a milking
January 3rd, Nine ladies dancing
January 4th, Ten lords a leaping
January 5th, Eleven pipers piping
January 6th, Twelve drummers drumming

Then I think I'm going to do a special post on January 7th or 8th because I think I'm going to try to have a 12th night party! We will see!!
