Highlights From the Open Studio

Been meaning to show you a few highlights of the June Open Studio and now it's the end of summer already! If you missed the last one, we're now looking forward to the next Open Studio set for the weekend of October 9, 10, 11, 2015, so mark your calendar and join the newsletter for a friendly date and time reminder.

For this event we repainted the studio to give it a brand new updated look. Erica painted the floor a rich dark gray, then repainted a few tired looking display tables a fresh bright white. We picked up a fun black and white polka dot rug and a couple of hanging lights from IKEA, put out all the latest new art and filled in with fresh flowers from the studio flower garden.

Colorful flowers from the studio and artwork throw pillows too!

Then we sat back and welcomed visitors to the three day open studio tour..


A big thank you to everyone who stopped by! You made our weekend special, you know that don't you? xox

I've been having so much fun over on Instagram making new friends and posting one piece of art, mostly from my sketchbook, every day for 100 days in a row rain or shine! I also can't resist posting photos of our farm, so you'll see what my life is like behind the scenes.. Come follow along right here
