Well, I have my first show under my belt and I must say it felt good. I received a lot of great feedback which is fantastic. I left with my ego very much in tact, even perhaps a bit distended. To those of you who purchased pots and have now found your way to this blog, again I thank you, much obliged. To the rest of you, well, let's just say there's more where that came from.
Now comes the fun part of unloading all those bins and organizing the flotsam. The hubs was right about the event being a learning experience. I have all kinds of little notes about what I would do differently next time. Better labeling comes to mind. One customer asked if I had more little blue bowls and life would have been much easier if I didn't then have to proceed to unwrap anything that was a bowl shape in my overflow bin. Also, silverpixels suggested I have things in sets and, well, that was good advice. I tried to group things by color, but that still wasn't quite it. I love that nothing in my cabinets match but I might be in the minority of people who feel that way. I think when most people contemplate a collection of dishes that aren't part of a set they think 'college apartment' rather than 'eclectic fun'. I do drink out of Smurf glasses, but I assure you it is by choice not by necessity.
Next up is to get a few things under 'Buy some pots' and there is also a charity event to prepare for called the Souper Bowl to which I donate several bowls every year. However these things will have to wait as tonight I need to switch hats and prepare for an evening of nursing. Although, you wouldn't catch me dead in a nurse's cap. But if you do, I implore you, please take it off!
I like to throw things.
