How Did Open Studio Go?

Drum roll please.....

Amazing, huh? I never thought I'd be able to show a clean studio on my blog! In fact, it was so clean one of the beaders on Sunday asked if the studio was always this clean.

I almost spit out my drink.

You're in on it with me - you've seen the pictures- you know the true story.

It's never this clean!

Sweet of her to make the comment, though.

Here's a quick photo of the beads and jewelry I set out for them:

Weird isn't it that so much work fits on a coffee table?

I bag the beads, label them for The Teen to take a photo and to have ready when someone makes a purchase off the website or Etsy. So hundreds of beads can fit into a little 8 by 10 inch tray. It's a little bit of a let down - seems it should take up more space because it takes up so much space in my life.


it still looks pretty in the little space


it was a quick clean up!


Here are a couple more pictures. The color is a bit different because The Teen had to close the blinds, it was just too much sun shining directly on the display.

It was alot of work to get things ready but it's made me want to do this more than once a year. I think there are alot of up sides and it'd be worth it.

What do you think are the "up sides" of hosting an Open Studio? I'll start with a couple of reasons, you add your own in the comments:

1. I don't have to pack all my beads up and travel to a show.

Now it's your turn....
