I finished up last minute things in my studio today and it is about ready for business! Gerry and I cleaned up the yard and put up lights and the wreaths on the house and it is looking quite festive around here! I love this sign. It was a prop for a show I did in Charlotte called Pump Boys and Dinettes. If the show ever comes around where you are, go see it. Such a great musical. My first show as a designer and still my favorite.
I love my little studio when it is all clean and decorated for the studio tour. You should all come and see it! These little barns want a new home :)
I woke up to an email from my friend Deb Harris saying that my barn was in the newspaper, advertising the tour, so the day was off to a great start. Then I had two emails for orders, and one email for an order yesterday. So sitting home on the sofa with my laptop brought me more business in two days than I did all three days at the CDCG. Go figure. Next year I may bloody well stay home all year and sell online! My signs are ready to put out for the tour, just follow the red triangles to number 25.
It was nice to ship out some stars and ornaments today and these are on hold for two lovely ladies that requested that I hold some things for them. See you Saturday girls!
I am going to a documentary film at Fearrington tonight called The Weaverly Path. It's about an 83 year old weaver. The film will be in the Fearrington barn, which I love and about a weaver, which I also love, so I think my day will end as nicely as it started. Now this is more like it. Self Care as my wise friend Shannon put it
xo PS: I have added a new shop now tab and a buy button to see how this works. This offer is through propay and all I had to do was paste the html, easy peasy, check it out! If it works, this is my future selling venue, no shows... woo hoo.
