I haven't done this before because I was nervous. I have so many what if's that I just never did it or even did the work involved in getting my work out there.
I had been reading Shannon LeVart's posts about getting you work out there and I was still on my high of the Bead Trend September cover that I sent a quick e-mail over to the owner of the store. Then I had a panic attack. Then I e-mailed my friend Patty and freaked out.
All I could think is oh my gosh what have I done? What if she doesn't like my work? What is she does like my work? What am I getting myself into?
The owner e-mailed me back less than an hour later. She wanted to see more. Oh my gosh! I frEaKeD out, e-mailed Patty again, then I quickly (before I lost my nerve) e-mailed the owner a nice note saying when I would be available and went to bed.
Sunday morning started out normal, 5:45am up, church, Shop Rite, hubby made pancakes and eggs and turkey bacon, yum, while I check my e-mail.
Oh my GOsH, she wants to meet me and they open at 11am!
Much to my surprise my husband helped me pack up some 50+ pieces, I e-mailed Patty, and drove my daughter and I out to the store, 45 minutes away. I was sweating the whole way and e-mailing Patty. I met with the owners and I am thrilled to announce that as of this morning Wednesday, September 14th, my jewelry is now on display at Bliss Co-Op in Sugar Loaf, NY!
This is truly a dream come true for me and a step in the direction I know I was meant to take. I thank all of you, especially poor Patty, who have supported me and encouraged me and most important believed in me, mom, I couldn't have done it without my family and friends- both in person and online.
Watch out world- here I come!

Oh I almost forgot what do you think of my display? Be honest I can take it and it will help me tweak whatever needs work.
