Fun Weekend

On Saturday and Sunday I participated in the Arlington Open Studios, a local event held within the old Gibbs Junior High School.

This building is divided and rented to several organizations including the Arlington Center for the Arts, the organizers of the open studios event.

My booth or shop or space was located in the gymnasium. I had a nice corner directly opposite the entrance to the room.

These first three shots are of my booth as I set it up Saturday.

Following the helpful advice of my neighbors on either side, I did change the set up quite a bit on Sunday, but sadly forgot to take additional pictures.

Thank you to all of my customers, and friends and family who came by to give moral support. Sales are great, but words of encouragement, from strangers as well as those I know, are just as important.

And thanks to Peggy Hodge for her wonderful custom cut matting, you can see my TTV images in them in the middle of the table here. Look for these images soon to be in my Etsy shop!

Here are a couple of my brand new necklaces which sold this weekend, look for some of the others to be posted soon in my shop!

Thanks to everyone for making it a very special weekend!

Peace to all,
