This is our set up for Friday night. From 5pm to 7:30pm is the patron show. Their patrons have first dibs on the pieces for sale. The Guardians of the Wood sold that night along with some of our other bowls. I thought it was a great night overall because everyone seemed really interested in listening to us describe what we do. We also saw some of our customers from last year that bought bowls for themselves and for gifts.
The pictures never showed the true depth of the color; the bowl really looked like the cosmos. I have also tried to re-create the colors in this bowl in two other smaller bowls and two plates but I can't. Don't know if it is because I used a different kiln, the weather was perfect and all the moons were in alignment or what, but it was PERFECT!!!! Which a customer agreed with. She bought the bowl on Saturday. I think that was the hardest thing I ever did was letting that bowl go and I know I am a little attached to things but come on now, I LOVED THAT BOWL! Mom kept asking me if I was alright and I said yes, but when I saw the customer leave the building with the bowl I almost chased her down asking for it back. I just keep telling myself the bowl went to a wonderful home. Yes, I know I am whacked!
So, that was our weekend. I took today off to recover and mom actually went to work. I think this morning I will work on making beads and unloading the car.
Pretty Things to sign up for the most awesomest Bead Soup Blog Party evah!!!!! I tried to sign up for it this morning, at 4:00am, but it wouldn't let me on the IPhone. So, I was good, I went back to sleep and then was over at mom's before 7:00am this morning signing up for it. This will be our third one and I can't wait to see who we will be partnered with. Lori does an amazing job of putting this on and I don't know how she does it. Lori is the BOMB!!!
