If you invite them will they come???

Christmas Card Design
"A White Christmas"
I finally got my brave on! This Sunday, for the first time, I am hosting an Open House to show and sell my art and cards. I have been preparing for weeks building inventory: creating, printing, cutting, adhering, labeling, packaging, more labeling, mat cutting, picture framing, canvas stretching,...I have fluctuated from sheer elation to "what the heck" was I thinking?!?! There's something about relishing in the anticipation and excited nervousness of planning such an event. . A thumping heart and jumping stomach add to a heightened sense of focus. I wonder, "if they are invited, will they come?" But mostly I have enjoyed a GREAT experience prepping for this show. I have had a lot of fun!!! Fun creating! Fun preparing! Fun learning! Fun inviting! I am looking very forward to welcoming friends into my home and sharing my passion with them!
