great day wednesday, tuesday...not so good

Tuesday...
Having returned from an exhausting weekend at market and a family gathering in Florida I was greeted Tuesday with the news that I missed a terrific professional opportunity. I was so bummed but a rebound was in my future so boot straps up I made some calls sent some emails and decided to take control. I have figured there are a lot of people that have no talent but are great at marketing and a lot of people that have amazing talent and are terrible at marketing. I am going to be more aggressive about marketing myself and my shop from now on.



Wednesday...
I started the day with a new attitude. I spent much of the morning printing out images for my portfolio. I met a lovely customer and chatted with her at length about many topics. And then to my surprise and delight Amy Zurker, the guru of Shop SCAD, and Katie Runnels, artist extraordinaire, came for visit. I haven't seen Katie in ages but I keep up with her through her blog. These gals have more talent than most people have in their pinkie toe. I really never get to see Amy except for an occasional visit at the store or at a social event but everytime we chat I think to myself, we should be friends. Katie was dropping off new pieces at shop SCAD so get over there and check them out.

That evening...
As if Wednesday couldn't get any better Amy and Josh Lind joined my family for dinner at our house. Amy, a former @home shop girl and successful painter is now living in San Francisco with her husband Josh a talented film producer/maker (Dandy Dwarves fame). William was the ring bearer in their wedding and he still calls her Amy Hahn. In fact, all week he kept saying "when are Amy Hahn and the boy coming to our house." Very cute. Thankfully, after a lot of tickles, playing with cars and tossing balls he was calling him Josh. So happy I got to share an evening with them catching up.
