Note to Lois the Lurker ... Thanks for your congratulatory email. I responded but your server bounced my message. I am delighted that everything is going well and hope that all the other problems are as happily resolved.

That's great!!
Isn't it fun to sell what you've made with your own hand? No feeling quite ilke it.

Erin Kuhns said...

That is FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!!! I'm so thrilled for you! Yipppeeeeee!!!

Oma said...

Thanks, Barbara and Erin.

It still feels a little unreal to me. I am delighted of course ... but I can't imagine that more will sell ... it's just a fluke, I am sure.

Do other people feel that way, I wonder?

Barbara Carlson said...

Yes. After every sale. Even after 34 years. And a sale doesn't "count" if it is a friend who buys...and over the years many, many of our buyers have become friends.
But it is what keeps the work sharp.

Oma said...

That is exciting!

That's wonderful! I'm not surprised that they sold. I'm loving the chairs.

Did they sell through the store? I'm glad they worked out better terms with you. One of my major pet peeves is that artists never make what they are worth and there's still people trying to take more money from them.

Anyway... Congratulations!

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Irish Girl ... Yes ... through the store with the fairer terms.

The frog pond chair being what was once the ugly orange one?

Oma said...

Tamarak: Thank you ... and Yes ... and it was the one I was having nightmares about as soon as I put it into the shop ... you know the kind ... it's not good enough ... I should add things to make it more interesting or sand down some areas that are still rough ... that kind of thing.
