Shameless Self Promotion...

C'mon, you know you've been dying to see some pictures of the shop... You can admit it.

I give you photos of First Friday - March 2011 at 'The Palette & The Page':

Hooray, a customer walks in:
Our sandwich board helps people find us because we're still lacking the funds for decent signage... But isn't is cute!

On this First Friday we featured a local winery by hosting a wine tasting. That's wine, in a box, I personally don't like wine but I'm told by the connoisseurs, Terrapin Winery makes a damn fine wine:
Guests mingle in the front area of the shop:
It really looks a lot better in real life, but yours truly creates the window displays:
Guests and Artists mingle in our Main Gallery room. On this night we were featuring the works of Painter Edwin Friend and Wood Turner Jim Dalton.

Unfortunately, I got busy before I was able to take pictures of our musicians, Joe Paulus on Guitar and Mike Wolfe on Violin.

Are we a class act or what?

I am Ringo

When it comes to music groups the greatest of all time has to be 'The Beatles'*

January 4th, I started a business with 5 other women. We're all in this together, each bringing our strengths in order to build a phenomenal business. But I really gotta be honest here and say two of these women, Lynn & Patti are the real rock stars. In fact, Lynn & Patti are the John Lennon & Paul McCartney of the business.

Instead of rhyming lyrics, Lynn performs bookkeeping magic, handling ALL of the sales figures, making sure the artists get paid, the bills get paid and working desperately hard to keep us flush, or something close to it.

For all the work Lynn does with the money, Patti works an equal amount of magic by managing not only all of our printed business materials and our website and mail lists but also works as a liaison for all of our artists and potential artists.

As for me, I'm Ringo. I struggle to keep the beat.
And every once in a while I compose something like this:

And like my blog posts... Here's something COMPLETELY random...
Paul McCartney makes Mashed Potatoes:

*I'm not going to even entertain an argument on this topic because it's fact, an absolute fact!
