My First Display!

I am so excited to be setting up a display in a local retail shop! I worked on this display all through the Thanksgiving weekend and for being my first effort, I think it turned out quite well! It was just what I had pictured in my head. My family looked at me quite quizically when I was trying to explain my idea of using steel piping and plywood, but once it was done, I think they all liked it. I almost want to just keep it here in my house, but I guess I wouldn't sell anything that way :) Hopefully the shop owner will like my idea as much as I do!

Here it is!

This has GOT to be the smallest studio ever! I got tired of my stuff inhabiting almost the entire dining room table in our house, so I off I went in search of a space to turn into a studio. It was either the office closet, or a dark, cold corner of our basement. So, I chose the closet, which is only about 32" wide by 24" deep. My husband thought I was crazy, and I wasn't sure it would work, but it did! Of course, someday I hope to outgrow it, but for now it will function just fine...and we will actually be able to eat at the dining room table again!

My First "Live" Sale

I had the opportunity to have a table at the local retail shop Victorian Trading Company last weekend. It did not cost me anything to set up a table and I sold six items in about five hours of time, so I thought it went pretty well. Of course after I left I went to another sale and spent half of what I earned.

I am currently working on creating the "smallest" studio ever! 
I'll post a photo of it once it's completed and you'll see what I mean. :)

It was my daughter Sophia's first Halloween to actually trick or treat. We went to the mall. Good thing we got there early! By the time we left it was packed! I made a Thomas the Train costume for her. She LOVES Thomas! Okay, back to work.
