Day One -- Over!

Well, it was a pretty good day, Open-Studios-wise.  I had about 50 lovely people come through the exhibit, I got to have very nice conversations about my work (with folks who were very complimentary), and I sold a few things besides.  What could be bad?

I had the intention of taking pictures of all the activity but somehow forgot about that today -- I'll try to get a picture of the admiring crowds tomorrow :)

Here's what the dining room looked like this morning:

Pictures on all the walls, of course - and here is the decoration I made -- a pink pumpkin (!) with Peeps -- 

So now I can relax and enjoy tomorrow.  It's actually kind of quiet most of the time, and then people show up.  My favorites:  the six ladies who showed up together and exclaimed over my new floor as soon as they were in the door!  They liked the pictures, too.

Hope everyone's doing well --

Oh good for you...this sounds like fun, but also a little nerve wracking. I am going to do this late in November with another friend who makes jewelry. Hope today is wonderful!!

Thanks, ladies, and Deanna, once you get rolling, it's fine. It's just the anticipation that's difficult -- I had eight potential parking spots staked out (parking is difficult here, so I talked to my neighbors), but I don't think there were ever more than two cars here at one time. But better safe than sorry, I guess --
