Last weekend was great... and busy... but great!
I was preparing my livingroom for the concert and Pop-Up Gallery for days. For the Gallery I wanted all personal belongings out of sight (which is a lot! And you'll only find out when you start cleaning out things) so it wouldn't distract from Megan's, Annet's and my handmade stuff. So... open cabinets were covered with lace and makeshift doors, I dusted the windowsills for a change, removed Bruinis (our floor cowhide), Marjolein and I installed her lamps and window frameworks - which was very nice to work a bit together again. (I really miss our workshop Werkpost, since I crave for collaboration).
We had 25 guests who'd come to listen to 'Port of Call' (Pieter van Vliet: singer songwriter, age 21! He's a real talent!) and Serbian duo 'Mesta'. Afterwards there was a jam session with Pieter, Jaap (neighbor, friend and organizer of this concert) and my husband Albert.
A complete make over in the living, we've never had such a nice shop! Visitors who had attended the concert and turned up the day after were all surprised by the different look of the living.
Annet and Megan turn out to be excellent cake bakers: carrotcake, chocolate cake with vanilla icing, muffins, apple pie.... yummie! Our visitors enjoyed Annet's Attention-tea and the sweets. Our products were scrutinized and well sold.We have plans to keep on doing Pop-Up Galleries. So if you have a nice living, hall or big barn or some other more or less empty space (shop/office); please contact one of us. We are open to community and collaboration in arts.
