Fun Thing #2... I WON! Don't you love it when you win? I sure do. It doesn't matter what the prize is. Every win is like a little pat on the head from the Universe, saying, Good work! You go girl! In this case, it's a good prize, and that makes it even better. Zoe Nelson, of Zoe Nelson -- Artwear, put together a sort of "priming the pump" giveaway, in hopes of getting some prosperity flow going. Times are tough for many of us, and I can particularly empathize with Zoe, a fellow jewelry maker who's finding it hard to make a living in this stinkin' economy. I've always told my kids, if you need something, the first thing to do is to give something. Sometimes it gets the flow going, sometimes not, but it always makes you feel better. In Zoe's case, it seems to have worked. The prize is a lovely little necklace of the sort I'd never have the patience to make. It will come to me in a surprise color, and the best part is, Zoe got a nice fat order for some of these from a store she's been hoping would come through for her. We all win! Wonderful!
Coming up soon, like maybe tomorrow, I'll show you what it's like to work the night shift in a bead tent, and what I have to show for it... Stay tuned!
