Perhaps a list is in order today…..
-I’m done working at the store for 4 days in a row. Christmas is a crazy time in retail. But I must say most of the store’s customers were in good spirits and patient. And I enjoyed talking to the customers and hearing all the positive comments about our store….Art Is In Market. So many said simply, but truthfully….”I LOVE THIS STORE”.
-All of the customers were so happy to be buying art from local peoples, and supporting our local economy. This trend is more than a fad. A growing societal conscience, a new loyalty to each other. Prices were value oriented, but surely not as “cheap” as products from China. This year, I noticed that price did not matter quite so much.
-I have a cold….occupational hazard, didn’t use enough hand sanitizer!
-Today is a catch up day….last minute wrapping, grocery shopping, and cooking. Today I’d love to get some cards out….they will be late, but at least they will arrive to wish some greetings.
-As a gift to myself, I managed to finish up some pieces of art to hang in our home. They are a result from a class I took with my friend, and gifted artist and screen printing diva—Lynn Krawczyk, Fibra artysta.
I took the class back in October, it was all about collage, paint and screen printing. So much fun! And to come away with several pieces that I like is a testament to an excellent teacher and a benefit of being prepared for the class with the right “stuff” to use as a focal point.
