we arrived home monday afternoon after a nice weekend in houston. the show this weekend was hands down the best show i've ever done. we came home with several empty bins and i'm wondering if i have enough work for our home sale after thanksgiving, guess i'll have to make some more! thank you so much to all the people who came out and supported us, it was nice to meet new folks and travel to a new town to show my work.
i was worried about this show because of all the financial doom i hear about on npr, but it didn't seem to effect this show. although we only sold two large pieces(imagine the volume of mugs, cups and bowls one must sell to have a killer show, guess i know whats first up on the making list) we saw several painters with originals and expensive sculpture going out the door so i think this show was good for everyone which i find very encouraging. we have had to raise some of our prices this year and while i always cringe because i'm worried people will think they're too high we didn't have a single person complain about the pricing, which might be a first.
i've been wanting to set up a way to sell on my website but have never had the time to build it so within the next couple of weeks i'll be putting some stuff on etsy until i can get the site going.
i cancelled my classes today because i'm feeling a little under the weather, so i'm going to go home and rest a bit. i'm leaving friday to go help my father redo their master bath as a surprise for my mother so i'll be gone for a few days.
