So it turns out that it’s the meetings that make the world go around. This week is a whirlwind of Sock Summit meetings. Steph and I are meeting with everyone remotely associated with anything we do Summitwise.  So far we’ve charmed and worried the folks at the convention center. It was the sheep that did it for them this time.  We’ve challenged DWA to look come up with some more creative ways to showcase while having fun, not killing our feet, being environmentally friendly and again not hurting our feet. All while staying within our budget. 

I love this part of the process the brainstorming ( I know a little scary) and dreaming of possibilities.  It’s a very different process this time because we don’t have to sell any of these people on us. They get it, well most of it anyway, And even if they don’t there is the proof of what they saw with their own eyes and experienced and now they are really willing to work with us to help us manifest our vision.  A refreshing change that I have to say if I’m being completely honest has me just a little worried.  I think it’s about having the wall taken down.  When you’re constantly pushing against a something and then the wall is taken down or maybe even just come loose. Well it’s just a little disconcerting.

It’s a good change and one both Steph and I have been working towards. I’m sure my unease will pass. I just hope I still get to negotiate. I love the spice trader aspect of all of this so much. I know it should worry me but it doesn’t.

Today we start the day with our legal team and move on to the accounting and the books.  While they are still a few brain cells left we’ll head to the filemaker folks in the afternoon.  Luckily ( wicked planning on my part0 we end the day with our graphic team. 

Hey Steph have you seen my sock?

  1. Goats, too. Little pygoras. And bunnies. Bunnies would make me so happy, I would giggle the whole time.

    OK… maybe I will giggle the whole time anyway. Chances are pretty good.

    But… bunnies… grin

  2. Yes I think Bunnies would be good! Such exciting news, I can hardly wait till next year. Know that all your hard “negotiations” are much appreciated.

    i’m (o.k., only a little) embarrassed to admit how often i fantasize about an east coast sock summit…and fervently wishing…the whole nine yards…first evening star, blowing on dandelions gone to seed…blowing out candles…etc, etc…

  7. Sounds like you have the makings for another great Sock Summit!

    Last time I saw your sock it was hanging out with your walkie talkie but maybe with the keys, dear Watson.  wink)

    Love the spice trader comment. I think perhaps you were both pirates in a past life. Cornelia Funnke wrote a great picture book about women pirates and I think you might have been in it. smile

    I love the idea of Stephanie and Tina as a pirates!  Maybe as “Long Tail Cast on Silver” and “Captain Tina Sparrow”?

    Maybe a theme for next year’s Sock Camp?

    I might have to start knitting an eye patch…….

  10. Can’t wait for Sock Summit next year. And you two are old hands at it now. I’m with you that it’s no fun without a little “spice trading”.

    What about a few Alpacas? Along with the sheep and the bunnies?

    Hope you are well!
