Halloween is Approaching

So Halloween is my favourite holiday of the year. And it is fast approaching. Have been trying to get many things done. Still haven't gotten around to finishing setting up my ArtFire account, have the bio done and most of the other basics. Now I need to get some items on their to sell. Then I need to get an Etsy account up and running. Many small steps will eventually get me there. I'm hoping.
So here is one of my latest embroidery projects aka procrastination tools. I think she is pretty cute. Now I have to decide what to do with her from here.

Getting Caught Up(HA!)

Well I have been trying to get caught up with everything. I think I may be getting close but that changes moment to moment. Have the new space pretty well all set up, have a few people signed up for workshops, but more would be nice. Patience is a virtue(that is the saying I think).
Have also been working on giving the building a face lift. Holly and I were both busy yesterday morning. She fixed broken concrete and painted the awning. I cleaned the front foyer and painted some walls. Now to see what the landlord thinks of our efforts.
Perhaps one of my errands today should be to take some pictures of the revamps and a street view of the store. I shall add it to my list.
Sorry there are no pictures today.

What's Up

So we have been busy getting the new shop up and running. I will be offering a variety of workshops and have many of the things I make for sale. This weekend was the local Scarecrow Festival so I thought what is better then making a store scarecrow. I think she turned out pretty amazing it only took Holly and I a full afternoon.
We have been painting walls, hanging displays, designing business cards and other propaganda. All in all it has been a busy three weeks since we signed the papers for the space. Now here's hoping we get some students for the classes offered.

The window display has been a work in progress. Trying to get samples of all the available workshops done and displayed at the shop and pictures posted to the website. Work is never done.
On top of all this I managed to pinch a nerve in my shoulder which has slowed down production a bit. But I think we have approximately half of the class samples done now. SO we are getting there. Need to do pictures of everything on Monday hopefully.
