I just got back from todays’ show in Nashua, NH and have another one tomorrow. We did the gauntlet back and forth cause we are only 2 hours from home, but poor Zippy was home all day, hopefully NOT pee-ing on the floor LOL A big round of thank you’s to all my customer, new and repeat!!! You have no idea what that meaans to me…HUGS to you all!
I had a very disturbing moment today though. I had a customer today who had bought 2 kits from me at the Portland, ME show. She bought an Ice Bracelet KIt and a Fringe Earrings Kit. She informed me she just got a newsletter from ‘Beads On The Kennebec’ for their summer class schedule and someone is teaching my Ice Bracelet in Augusta, ME. Needless to say, I couldn’t wait til I got home to check their link, which I have had posted on this blog for a very long time!!!! Bev, one of the awesome ladies who runs Bead Fiesta, could not wait until I got home though and went and used the hotel public computer to see for herself. She was amazed and angry and when I saw the printout of the pic, even though it is a pretty crummy photo, I find that I am kind of stunned. I have been busting my ass to make a go of things for myself and my babe has allowed me to stay home while we suffered financially so I could make a go of this. I finally designed something that was selling like crazy and made me proud. I had finally found a tiny slice of reward and pride. I would like you all to look at the pic and tell me if I am wrong. I am including both her pic and mine.
This is mine, which I posted back here:
Not to mention, I had sold one of these last year and had posted it in Starving Artists Forum and on Deviant Art…LAST YEAR!
Here is hers:
Now you all tell me???
