Overwhelmed with Gratitude

I'm using (stealing) my dear friend Sandee's format for her blog.  Her blog is In the Hills of North Carolina. She has become a wonderful friend and a HUGE supporter thoughout this journey. Thank you Sandee!

Definition of GRATITUDE

: the state of being grateful : thankfulness
I am so grateful to everyone who came out to support me on March 16th! We had a great day and I met so many friendly peeps. I hope you all enjoyed the make n' takes. I totally bought way too much salt water taffy sooooo.... We'll have a candy dish in the studio for months.
Again, No pictures, No announcements, No classes, Just Plain THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.
Truth and Trust!

An Awesome Beginning!

Hi Friends! Old and New!
This morning I'm reflecting on what a wonderful day I had. The store opened and I really did have people waiting at the door. How exciting is that? I can't thank my family and friends enough for being there to support me. I could never have done this without all of them! Rick, Barie, Marla, Mike, Kathryn, Nick, Dena, Jan,Gwenda, Paula, Ted, Jim, Chris, Linda, Lori, Barbie, Mom (who was so sick she couldn't come), Donnie, and everyone else who came and visited.
Those of you who are local. We started Friday off with a segment of Good Day Sacramento and Julissa Ortiz. She was so much fun AND a crafter. We had a blast and you can watch the segments here and here and here

My Crafty friends Marla and Dena who got up at the crack of dawn. Ok, Dena doesn't think she's a crafter but look at her tiles!
Jan and her beautiful Quilling
Paula... Having an awesome time!!!!

Our Camera Man Scott, who was sooooo into the craftiness (NOT)!


I'll post more pics from the Grand Opening tonight...... I have to go to work! :)

If you're in the area......

Come on down for a visit. I'll have the coffee on and donuts waiting. Ok, Maybe I'm not starting off so healthy with the donuts but I'm sure I'll need the sugar high!
 I finished (with the help of my friends and family) cleaning and shining everything and guess what I forgot? An "Open" sign. Kinda need that huh? That's the beauty of having a studio, I'll make one when I get there. Here's a few pics of the Barn. Thank you all for your support!

The register area needs a bit of work


My Dear Friend Janet made this for me. Beautiful!

So Far Behind....

in posting and I'm sorry. Holy C....... This has been a ride! I'll try to catch up and not spend a ton of time writing (so you don't have to read). Most everything in the store is "used" except the tables and chairs in the studio area. I visited a retail outlet store and picked up some great items but, they had to be painted...... Ok, I love the spray gun, took me about 4 hours to spray these items.

These are in the store now and full of merchandise. More pics to come.... I gotta catch up!
BTW....I'm overwhelmed by everyone's support. It's been amazing how many people are excited about my adventure. I love my friends, family, co-workers (yes, I have a full time job) and total strangers who say "Go For It!"
I appreciate all of you!!!!!!!!!! I swear I do! The "Barn" will be open this weekend March 9th!
