So wow, I totally forgot to publish the august newsletter, oops. I guess I was a bit busy, lol September has been very busy also, hence why it is being release a few days out. I am sure you all are busy as well. What with summer winding down and school days beginning. So much to do, such excitement! Our school was delayed a few days because of the heat and we loved it. Let summer last as long as possible! But it comes with days of catching up too. I sit here typing and all I want to do is go out and play at the beach, such a kid, right?
My August saw me doing two different stays in the Hyannis shanty program. My first was at the new overlook on Ocean and South street with two other fabulous ladies. The marvelous twins, Mary and Marilyn and I had a terrific time. It was a slow but successful week this first year and I look forward to doing it again next season. A few weeks later I did the Harbor Shanty with , Chris, Deb, Linda, Sue, Sarah and Laura and it was an amazing week! I had a very successful week that resulted in my getting many people to see my new keepsake pendant. I am so happy to have had the chance to get it out there for everyone to get excited about how beautiful it is. I am back in my studio getting it ready for release into another market as well and I am very hopeful that it will have a huge response. I met so many wonderful people that also asked about custom work. I look forward to hearing from them with their treasures to be custom wrapped in the near future.
My store items have changed a lot as I sold out of many pieces, and I did make quite a few new pieces while at the shanties. I will be updating my website as soon as possible with the new stock, but if you have any requests or questions about anything, please contact me, via my website or my etsy store. Of course as always never hesitate to ask about custom work either, I love ,love, love custom work!
I am not doing a fall class at Nauset at the present because the last classes didn't have enough enrollment and because I have other things going on, however, I am still available for personal lessons and/or one day events/parties of up to ten students if anyone wishes to book for a few hours class with me. For a party it is only $25-$30/person dependent on project and for personal lessons it ranges dependent on number of classes. So contact me for information if you are interested. It is a great ladies night, bridesmaid's get together, older teen party idea or even just a me time gift to yourself or someone else.
Well, I do have some fun planned among all the work as I hope you all do to. So remember to keep enjoying the days among the craziness and I will hopefully see you out there on the beach, in the class room or maybe on the dance floor some time!
I am an artist/small business owner and I wanted to share with you the struggles we face in this business and an inside view of what we are really thinking sometimes in our crazy, creative minds. As well as the usual stuff, ie newsletters and updates.
