I’ve been listing items on etsy today, with more to come!
The Blue Genie Art Bazaar was good for me, thank you all so much for your support! I sold most of what I had there. I wish I’d been able to make more, but I’ve been out of production due to lightning striking my studio. I’m totally serious, lightning struck my studio. The wiring isn’t quite fixed yet so no overhead light or outlets working. I have to say I feel really very lucky there wasn’t a fire, no one was hurt (my kids were terrified!) and the damage is just around the studio. Ironically I had been working on some pieces with lightning bolt appliques before the storm. Hmm…
I had some surge protectors, not very good ones (a friend gave me one of these Tripp Lite Isobar Surge Protectors after the incident). It was a pretty direct hit (see the photo of the metal roof there on the left, and the scorchy light switch near the point of entry) and I did lose a color laser printer and a wireless base station.
I had just enough hang tags for the stock I had, and display stuff already printed out. And fortunately all my sewing machines and my favorite shop lamp are ok, I can run them with extension cords until the wiring and the lights are fixed up. January is always a good time to refocus and set some goals, now that I’ve recovered from the holiday busy season, and I have some purging and organizing and cleaning to do before I can hunker down in the studio.
Happy New Year!
