We had our first open studio Saturday this past weekend... it was great. Not super busy, but we were just super happy to be there & open!! Wendy & I were there for the day... Christmas music, spiced apple cider, cookies & brownies & plenty of people stopping by. 

We'll be there again this coming Saturday, December 21st, from noon - 4pm. There will be lots of other artists in the building who will be open as well. Stop on by! 

Here are some pictures....
First of all, I made these temporary 2-sided sandwich boards to put @ the top of the stairs on our floor & also just outside our door in the hallway...
The space as you walk in the door... Krista's work is right up front on the table & on the wall, mine is on the far right wall & on the counter of the cabinet. 
This is Wendy's space just as you come in the door... she found this great cabinet & changed out the knobs to HER awesome glass knobs, that she specializes in.

I posted in early November about the new (ad)venture that me & Wendy Mosman are joining Krista Stensrud in. Well... here we go!!

I hope you local (twin cities) folks will join me, Wendy & Krista to kick off our first open studio event in the Northrup King Building this Saturday, December 14th from noon - 4pm. Studio #264. 

You can come check out the fabulous studio & gallery space (which we'll be tweaking a bit at the beginning of the year), watch us do some glass beadmaking demos & see the wonderful items we have available. Krista makes beautiful jewelry, Wendy makes some wonderful jewelry as well, but is also focusing on beautiful glass cabinet knobs & lamp finials. I will have plenty of jewelry, as well as glass handled utensils & serving pieces, wine bottle stoppers, plus my cute little kaleidoscopes. Perfect time for some last minute Christmas shopping!! Many of the other artist studios will be open as well. Noon - 4pm. The address is the Northrup King Building, 1500 Jackson Street, NE., Minneapolis 55413 & our studio is #264. The sign above the door will still say KRISTA MINA. 

We will also be open Saturday the 21st for open studio as well.
