As usual, everything is running last minute.
I am somehow always finishing things right up to the deadline.
Why, oh why!
Saturday I've invited over three hundred people into my teeny tiny home and studio.
I decided several months ago to host an open house / studio sale to try to move some inventory and get clients more aquainted with me and my work.
This seemed like a likely step for an emerging artist.
Two of my friends are catering it for me.
I was considering hiring a cleaning service, but decided to do it myself.
Invitations were mailed later than I would have liked.
Only 14 people have RSVP'd (half of them are artist friends - great for support, but not likely to buy).
I'm banking on the assumption that people don't like to RSVP and I called the event an open house.
I am somehow going to manage the following before Saturday:
- clean my house
- finish two new tiles
- finish a wedding cake portrait
- start a new saints painting
- make price labels for all of my work
- set up displays
- print more note cards
- take slides of my student's artwork
- follow up with customers
- mail out calendar orders
