Wow, wow, wow

I had no idea it had been so long since I had blogged. I kind of forget about my blog. Not intentionally mind you. But with social media, I have a tendency to forget that this little blog is sitting over here and being neglected. Plus a lot of time I have no clue what to write on my blog because my days are pretty much all the same. I don't want to use my blog to become whiny and complain about my everyday life - which would be very easy for me to do. And like so many people - I have a pretty hum-drum life - work, jewelry, eat, bed, rinse, repeat.

That being said - I do have something pretty major to report. Practically since the day I started making jewelry, I have dreamed of being able to be successful enough to have my own little business. Last night, I got an offer by a couple of jeweler friends to put my jewelry in their fine jewelry store. This is a fantastic opportunity - one I cannot pass up - and one that I cannot believe that I am lucky enough to have at this point. The folks that own this business have a store front, but their business is pretty much by appointment only. This makes the risk of theft nearly non-existent - which is a huge plus for me. They are regulars of the restaurant that I work in - and they are some of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of knowing. I cannot really put into words how excited that I am about this chance - because quite honestly - this could be something huge for me. This may be the opportunity I have been looking for my business to become something more than just a pipe dream. The other thing that was pretty cool? It was pretty exciting to see how enthusiastic they were about my work. I had been a little afraid to show them my work - because they create fine jewelry - and well - I sell my stuff at craft shows.




All of this has made me terribly excited - I hardly slept last night. But it has also made me unexpectedly tearful - partially happy tears, but also some sad ones as well. I wish my parents were here to share in my success - especially my Dad. He would have been SOOOOOOOOO excited for me. I know that they know - but still I would like to be able to actually TELL them. =)

Enough on that for now - but I will leave you with my thanks and love - and some pictures of some new items not yet listed in my store.

One thing about opportunities is that if you don't grab them when they come by you generally miss out altogether. So grab on tight and enjoy the ride. Well done!
