I think it went well!……. and a mini black friday/cyber monday sale

Well, I am happy to report that my first home/studio show and sale went well.  I’m grateful to everyone who came – either to cheer me on or to buy a piece!  I also had a nice shout out in the Niagara Artist’s Centre e-newsletter, which was completely unexpected.

I was too nervous on Saturday morning to take any pictures of the set up and too hungry Sunday night…. so, here is a photo of the case I had by the front door of the fine jewellery and examples of custom work:

I particularly like it against the red wall! There are some crazy reflections going on in that acrylic box (it wasn't like that on the weekend, I promise!)


On a side note, I thought I would participate in the “Black Friday/Cyber Monday” craze!  I know I’m not American, but there’s nothing like jumping on the bandwagon – eh!?  Anyway, I’ll be working away in the etsy shop today to put selected items on sale.  Specifically, it will is items $30 and under will have free shipping (which can be quite a large percentage depending on the price!).

So, on that note – I’ve got to get busy!

All the best,

  1. I’m so happy to hear that your first home/studio show and sale went well. I can imagine it was a LOT of work and somewhat anxiety provoking. : ) Here’s to many more!

    • Athletic scholarships can be renewed by the university on an annual basis, it is up to the discretion of the university. Ben Ol&12s#8no7;s case is not remotely similiar to this situation. BYU wanted Ben to return to BYU, they had a scholarship for him, he simply chose to go somewhere else. If you don’t think that athletic programs will bend over backwards to accommodate football or basketball players then you have your head in the sand.

  2. Congrats, Valerie! Your first show – how exciting! So glad it went well for you. Now maybe take a day off to re-energize…

  3. Love the red wall, your display looks great! And the rough stone wall in the background there, so nice to peek into your home :) Good to hear it went well!
    And yes, bandwagons are for jumping!! Happy sales! :)
