This past weekend I participated in the Somerville Open Studios. To say it was a success would be an understatement! I am happy and humbled at how well Salvage Love did. I sold almost everything I had made and already have some custom order requests. It was such a fun event to be a part of and I am so glad I did it and look forward to the next event!
Many Thanks to the following people:
To my parents, for putting up with my insanity for the week leading up to the event. To my Mom, for helping me clean my disaster of an apartment/workspace to make it presentable. To my Dad, growing up with you as such an amazing artist has inspired me in countless ways. Thank you for all of your help, inspiration and for giving me something to strive for. And, of course, for being the best Dad anyone could ever have.
To all of my friends, new and old, who stopped by to show your support. It meant a lot to have all of your support.
To my friends and family who are far away who couldn’t be there, your words of encouragement always help me.
To my best friend Amber, for being there, for running errands, for nourishment and emotional support and most importantly, always being able to read my mind and making me laugh.
And last but not least, to my wonderful boyfriend Robert who has pushed me to follow my passions and to not give up. You kept me sane throughout this whole process. You helped in every way from prepping to setting up, to taking orders, to ushering people, to being my camera man, my assistant and my right hand man. I would have not be able to do any of this without you and I appreciate you more than you know.
I am one very lucky girl.
