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.
