Open House Reflections

This is the most recent photo of my booth. Unfortunately, although I did bring my camera, I failed to take any photos at my Open House this past Saturday. Can you believe it?

The Open House went well. I am actually pretty proud of myself for putting it together. I have had them at my home in the past, but this was much more of a production, really. More people, too.

I also am proud of my self for speaking in front of a group. Truth be told, I didn't really have that many people to speak to, but I definitely could not have even done that a year ago. Not that I am shy at all, but I am just a little scared of speaking in public. Actually, I now feel like I am over it.

I am so happy and thankful to those of you who did come out and support me. I think the longest trip winner goes to my Aunt Sue (a/k/a Aunt Suzie, lol) who came all the way from Hughesville her friends for the Open House. My mom also came from Hughesville to help me. I could not have done the Open House without her and Jim. I couldn't have physically done it or emotionally done it!

I think that this was even more valuable as a learning experience, and I am sure I will be sharing what I have learned in the future. Right now I am still recovering! LOL

And also getting ready for the B.B. Bellezza Virtual Open House coming up on July 19th, 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. Right now my Etsy Shop is still on vacation while I get my stand sorted back out again, but I plan to have it up and going by Wednesday and there will be many new things on Sunday right before and during the Virtual Open House!

Glad you gave a talk. It was interesting learning about how you made all your pieces.

Looks wonderful! It's funny, but when you're talking about something that you're passionate about, it's just like talking to best friends. Much easier. Glad you realized that. Your display is so beautiful that I'm sure people were eager to hear about it.
