1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse
I am at our local library with Gabriel. As always, while he is in his mom-free preschool story time class, I bolt to the adult section to see what's new & exciting in the world of fashion and jewelry. As I'm browsing the shelves, I see the title "1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse". I immediately pull it off the shelf and begin flipping through it to see if I know any of the artists that made it into the book. You see, I submitted some of my own work back in January '09, however, when I never heard anything I assumed my work was passed over. Boy was I wrong! Much to my surprise, not one, but TWO pieces of MerCurios jewelry were included amidst the ranks of those amazing artists. WOW! A few days later, and I'm still wrapping my head around the entire experience.
This amazing event couldn't have come at a better time as I'm pitching to Bendels on Friday & the press can only help! Speaking of my presentation, I ordered new jewelry trays, black velvet liners and a carry bag on Tuesday and received everything on Thursday. I've already begun laying out the collection to see where I need to fill gaps. New business cards from MOO, complete with pictures are on their way! I'm looking forward to their arrival on Monday.
There is still a lot to do and the ball is rolling in the right direction, so I'm stoked to say the least.
