Yesterday was a good day

I received an email from a young woman who is opening a shop which will feature local artists. She asked if I would like to sell my cards there, so I'm waiting for more information from her. I decided to take a little drive to see her shop and brought my cards with, just in case. Well, it turns out that they are still fixing up the new shop and it was closed.

My dear hubby decided that he wanted to go into a completely different neighborhood to have some crawfish thing for lunch...and what did I see? Another shop (swanky part of town-ohh laa laa) that is called Village ARTisans.

I am not comfortable going outside of my comfort zone, and I've never done anything like this before, but I marched in with my cards and introduced myself to the owner. Long story short, I will be selling my cards there as soon as I can finish them! Wow. I wasn't at all sure of myself and when I saw the quality of the work in the store, I almost turned away.

See I told you, I'm learning something new everyday.

Have a wonderful Sunday.



  1. Good morning! Becky. A lovely post and I have done the same thing too. Nerve racking to say the least but when they say yes oh my! Your legs turn to jelly and you can't write the order to save your life! Ha Ha!Well done!
    best wishes Lindsey aka bluecricket.

  2. Congratulations! What a brave thing to do. I'm the same way and know it takes a lot to just walk in. Your product told the story and it proved that you can do this successfully.

  3. Way to go Becky, I just found your blog in the etsy forums, so stopping by to cheer you on and wishing you much success!
