Welcome to my Open House! Here is a (somewhat "virtual" tour!) Looking in the front door, then moving around the space in a counter clockwise direction. Enjoy!
As I mentioned in my last post, I have been in a mode of frustration lately--trying to work through some ideas in new mediums and processes. So going into preparations for the Open House was definitely an uphill journey. AND all at the last minute (of course!)
The weather forecast was terrible. It stormed all day Saturday & I worked on getting set up til late Saturday nite. The wind blew ferociously all night and Joey (big scairdy dog) kept climbing in bed with me, stepping on me & hogging the space & the covers. So no sleep for either of us
I got up early Sunday morning to resume my setup, and then the power went out, which stalled me for awhile. I went over to the bakery to get some coffee (they had a generator) and that got me going again. Miraculously, the power returned about 10:30 and the rain stopped just in time for the Open House. Yay!
I managed to pull things together, and was just returning from the store with some plastic cups when the first guests arrived. It was nonstop after that.
I was very happy with the turnout, and some people I hadn't seen in a long time came, which was lovely. And the enthusiasm for my work and for the new space was just wonderful!!! It catapulted me out of that space of frustration and I am ready to jump back into work again!!!
