WOYWW - Surtex Prep

I am in marathon mode for my upcoming show. I run a booth at a licensing show every year in the month of May and every single year it hits my like a mack truck, being carried on a freight train.

I am printing more than a hundred sheets of double sided matte 13x19" paper for portfolio presentations.  So ink is as important as blood would be to me, if I could print in it.

To my left, I have the essentials.

I'll be here all week, folks ;)

In happy of happiest news. I woke up to the gift of Beastie Boys BRAND NEW ALBUM. It showed up in my inbox along with a note of hilarity from the boy this morning. Bless the boy, bless him for knowing what my workdesk needed to be hearing tonight.

Run by Julia's because she's the one who really knows how to whip a workdesk into shape.

I can relate to how you measure wealth. Ink is very precious to me, and I totally understand how all that printing can put a BIG dent in your pocket. Happy WOYWW from # 6 this week.

Lordy, what a scarey grown up thing to be doing! I know why you leave it to last minute though - you may have late designs to add that will make all the difference, I mean, really you have no choice. Am still deeply impressed that you drink water by choice. Ugh.

Interesting selection of essentials !!

Your picture with the high lights and notes is a riot. Love your post.

Elizabeth said...

Love your pictures are so funny and I can so relate to how you measure your wealth - ink cartridges for my printer cost a fortune. Nothing stronger than water to keep you going - that's smart :) Have a great week once this crisis is over. Elizabeth x #38

Very nice post! Sounds like you are very busy getting ready for the upcoming show. Isn't ink horribly expensive right now. It went up $6 a cartridge last week here. The manager said it was shipping cost increased. Thanks for sharing. Vickie aka okienurse #36
