Thank you! You have helped turn my tiny art hobby business into a real part-time job! My business has grown so much since the summer show and it will continue to grow more after this winter show I’m sure. And while it’s great to make money, more than that I am enjoying what that really means: the opportunity to spend more time doing what I love to do – make pottery and share color and design ideas with my customers. Thanks for all the hard work you put in, we appreciate it!
