Thank You! and Studio Photos

Sigh.... It makes me feel so good to hear all your positive good wishes for my new adventure in the studio. Thank you all soooooo much. I received many responses to my newsletter that do not get shared on my blog. Some folks I haven't talked to in a while and that is so nice. :) I'm sure smiling!

Here are a few more photos that Gene took with his iPhone yesterday. He put up the other set of glass shelves and will put up my rain gutter shelves tomorrow.

The back wall, looking over my work table and desk.

The window, again.

The small shelf on top of the bookshelf.

The "newest" shelf.

The large shelf.

I didn't go to the studio yesterday. I stayed home washed clothes, listened to the Longhorns baseball game. That was good, they won 8 - 0 so swept the Aggies. I also did my newsletter. Gene went to the studio and put together the new shelf. He made the stands for them and fastened them to the wall so they won't tip over. They look so nice. Thanks again to Lea! She is such a sharing and good person.

I have to get the cash box and change. I was there Saturday and sold 2 small tiles to a pair of sisters. One from Midland and one from Houston that meet in the middle to see each other. So cool. But it was like being in South America. I had no change and the bank wasn't open. I went to the drugstore and bought a coke to get change. Not nice, but necessary. Ha. Luckily they didn't mind and I had the first sale/s in the gallery. :) In South America when the stores had no small change they would give you pieces of hard candy!

Today I'm off to see about the credit card machine, cash box, and hopefully sketch and paint. Woohoo!!
