Article in the Local Newspaper
In advertising for my studio sale, I emailed a submission to the local paper's calendar. To my surprise, a couple of days later, one of their staff writers phoned me to see if they could do a feature on me and my work. I was so flabbergasted when she called that I think I responded to her statement, "We'd like to write an article about you." with "Really, are you sure?" Luckily for me, she went ahead and wrote it anyway.

Studio Sale
On Saturday, I hosted a Open Studio/Holiday Sale at my house. It went really well and was oh-so-nice to do a sale without leaving the comfort of my own home. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy fairs and festivals a couple times a year, but this was a surprising delight to find that when someone was not here, I could go back upstairs or out in my lab and work on other things. Below are some photos of the show.

I "borrowed" furniture from all over the house for the set-up downstairs.

Most of the artwork was courtesy of my two-year old daughter and my 22 year old brother who is a fabulous painter. The paintings in the picture above are drips and splashes from my daughter.

This is a close-up of the center table.
I definitely will be doing a similar sale next year. The only thing I'm planning on doing differently is having it a little earlier in the month of December. A lot of the people who dropped by seemed a little stressed running around trying to get stuff ready for Christmas.

Holiday Sale and Open Studio

I'm hosting my first ever open house and sale next weekend. For advertising, I created postcards, printed them, and spent all of tonight getting them addressed and ready to send out. Because I've never done a sale like this before, I'm interested to see how it all goes. I've attached a pic of my postcard below. I'll be spending this week cleaning out my studio and house and making sure everything has price tags.
