What a terrific turnout for yesterday's first annual HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE. Thank you to all of those people who were able to attend and who brought lots of words of encouragement for my creative endeavors. A very special thanks to my incredible generous friend, Andrea, who opened her home to us and also provided great snacks. It was especially wonderful to touch base with people I haven't seen in a while.
I will be listing many new pieces this week in my Etsy shop-http://www.gemrose.etsy.com/ .I am also offering free shipping -just enter coupon code-HOLIDAY SHIP-at checkout. Give me a day or two- although I am officially still unemployed I need a day to gather myself after the weekend rush. I also have a couple of "working interviews this week in the dental world. Wish me luck!There were some people who responded that the date was not a good one for them although they would have liked to attend and I have had requests for another date in the near future to stop by and shop at my home. This is sounding pretty good to me although I am uncertain when might be good for the most people concerned. So leave me a comment and let me know whether a Friday night after work or a Saturday afternoon might work best for you. I will see what is better for most and post the date in the near future. Probably right after Thanksgiving, I am thinking.
Thanks for all the encouragement and support- both here and on Facebook. I miss many of you and it is so nice to hear that you miss me too. I am looking forward to lunches with my friends in the weeks ahead.
