Open Studio Weekend recap

So now that my sister in-law’s wedding is over, I can finally get to my Open Studio Weekend review. I am so thankful for all of the visitors who braved the roads and weather to visit my studio! I had a great time. 🙂

I’m well-aware that there was no way my poor little yellow sign could possibly compete with a big orange sign and a pylon. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out this post.

By the way, the person who painted the other sign is awesome.

My husband and I are now referring to our street as Gallison Hole Road. I’m sure that I lost some folks at the bottom of my hill when they were greeted by the “Road Closed” sign, but I had a much better turnout than I had anticipated. I just found out that it will be at least two weeks until they repair the destroyed culvert. Argh.

Here’s a virtual tour of my studio as it was set up that weekend:

I am looking forward to participating in Vermont’s first (and hopefully annual) fall Open Studio Weekend! Mark your calendars for October 1 – 2, 2011 for some spectacular foliage and super-duper handmade books.
