A few weeks ago, I held an open house to show and sell my work. It was a good turnout and I am so grateful for those that came and supported my art. I truly have the most wonderful friends and family. A special thank you to Cheryl, Rochelle, Michelle and Sarah for helping with setting up, baking, wrapping, taking the money and generally just being amazing friends! I must also thank my father in law for making me a beautiful easel out of birch to hold my ornaments and necklaces. Thanks ‘Big’ Neil!
The Saturday was extremely busy which was wonderful, however, Sunday was slow so next year I will be going back to just having a one day event. I was trying to save money (and the environment) and not do paper invitations and really focus on email and social media to spread the word. After comparing the number of people that came to the number I was hoping for, I think theres alot to be said for paper…something to think about for next year.
I have taken a few boxes of pottery into the Silver Bridge Gallery as well as posting a few items to my etsy shop. If you were unable to attend my open house, please visit the gallery or etsy if you were interested in taking a look. When I was in the Silver Bridge Gallery last week, they did have a few of my snowflake ornaments left…
Here are a few photos from my open house.
….. and a special thank you to Joel for living in a house of complete disarray for a few weeks during set up and take down xo
