Studio Grand Opening, Door Prize winners, Proof of the maddness, and generalized chaos :)

I promised this blog yesterday, but if you would have been present for my day yesterday, you wouldn't have wanted to blog either. :) To generalize this week, it has been utter madness, and it's madness I am VERY HAPPY is happening at MY STUDIO (SMILING!), but madness none the less!

The Grand Opening was SENSATIONAL!! I was so excited when the first 2 people showed up, and then I blinked and there were 20 people, and then I blinked again, and I felt like I was at a concert! Standing room only! :) It was wonderful, and I wanted to talk to everyone, so photos are minimal, but I can give you a little taste of the day...

Jamie,
CONGRATULATIONS on your new studio! We are so happy for you! I posted a different note and it's in cyberspace someplace. Owning your own business is such an accomplishment and can be very rewarding!! We wish you nothinig but the best in all that you set out to do! You'll do a great job. You're great with people and a hoot....not sure where you get that from! Must be from your mom...your dad is a grump! HA!

Seriously, best of luck and thank you so much for the gift certificate. I was excited when I got it in the mail! We want to get a picture of the five of us with the Harley....we'll have to get something scheduled sometime!

Loved the C'view cheering section! What cute kids they are! :)

Best of luck in all that you do! Keep that office girl in line and that make-up girl in line too!

The Bowen's
