Finishing details

 I finished up some final details in my studio yesterday and I am ready to get this party started!
Gerry helped me pull a huge vine out of a tree and I wound it around the rafters and added white Christmas lights and it looks enchanted. I'm going to keep these up, it makes the studio so cozy and warm. My mom sent me the sweetest email, I thought I would share it, I don't think she would mind:

You are sooo====original!  It looks so pretty.  You make me cry.  Wish I could share it with you.  Who but you would think of pulling a vine out of a tree and making it look so good.  Your hard work will pay off.  Tell Gerry I am so thankful that he helps my baby!!!!! Mom

I didn't always get these kind of notes, and it felt so good. Finally she is happy with someone, and can pass that on to me!

All I need is a little snow to make this a perfect setting, and maybe a wood stove in the studio. My studio is tiny, and sometimes I envy the artists that have large studios, but it suits me well. It feels so warm and welcoming when I go down in the mornings and I look forward to walking through the door. I have worked so hard for the past two years to get here, and every step was worth it!
My friend Susan sent out to her friends and customers these heart chakra yantras announcing her show, so I put mine in the studio for good energy. I think it's working already:) If you can't get to Chatham for the tour, Hillsborough has the artwalk tonight and Susan will be at the Starlight Gallery. So much going on from now until Christmas, I'll never make it around to see all of the artists that are having shows.
Come on over to Chatham County tomorrow and see me, you don't have to buy, just come by and say hello!!!!

Scott Garrett said...

... I'm on my way!

Hope it goes well and good homes are found for those pots. I love that studio, it looks about the perfect size... although i wouldn't say no to a larger space either.

last Christmas i had jeff string white lights in the rafters of our gallery... it was so much work (and we loved the look) that we decided to leave them and keep them on year round. they make me think of twinkling stars.

Hey Laura, I know, this has really made me miss my days as a designer. I was telling Gerry that I should just contract out to decorate artist studios haha!
Scott, come on over, it's not that far! This is really a perfect size studio for me.
Michele, I can just see those lights in your space, I know it's charming. I think it looks like little stars in my studio too!
