Let the Holidays Begin!

This past weekend I had a very successful open house to show and sell my wares. I had a wonderful turnout and lots of helping hands to make the day go smoothly. I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who helped in preparations for the open house and to thank everyone that came out to support me. Thank you to all my friends and family who donated their time, food and moral support. Thank you thank you thank you!!! A special Thank you for Sophia who hung the candy canes perfectly!!!!!!

For the past few months, I have been working feverishly to try and get what I thought would be enough stock for the show. I am now left with empty tables, a cold, dozens of orders and now what feels like laryngitis. I’m feeling like a week on a beach with a book is in order, however, I must get back to filling those orders…..tomorrow.

I absolutely loved getting feedback from everyone and I am pleased that there were so many happy customers! It was great to go to work today and hear everyone chatting about their purchases and hearing comments “oohh, I was going to buy that one” or “I got one of those too, I love it”. It really is a wonderful feeling to make something that someone is going to love and use everyday. I truly feel honoured to have my work in someones home.

  1. Hi Carmen,
    Congratulations on your very successful open house. Your work is lovely, and I want you to know that the vase of flowers is now happily perched in my kitchen. When we arrived home on Sunday night I put together a light dinner of candied salmon, cheese, and crackers and the tray worked perfectly and looked magnificent. I see both of these in the picture on your website. I hope you now have a little time to rest and get over your cold. I told Miranda about the salad bowl shortage and she was just glad that the response to your pottery has been so positive. She is quite willing to wait until you’ve had a chance to get back to your wheel, but she wanted you to know that there is no rush at all. Take care.

    Love,
    Aunt Nette
