Wow, I went MIA for a little while, but I’m back!
It’s been a hectic couple of months. I’m somewhat taking my business in a different direction. While I’m still creating and designing my own jewelry, I’m also getting more into jewelry supplies, as well as graphics & designs for crafts/scrapbooking.
I’ve created a website for everything I offer. Which is why there has been nothing new produced lately, but that’s soon going to be changing. It took a lot to get everything up and running but I’m very excited about it! So please check out my website and see what I’ve been up to. 🙂
So recently I was contacted through my Etsy shop by someone who had bought one of my ‘hope anchors the soul’ keychains. They were from Las Vegas and they said they were starting a new company and the acronym would be hope. They still had a lot of finalizing to do with the actual deciding of the name but if they chose to go with that one, they wanted three keychains with “hope” in all caps. She said she would get back to me in two days to let me know.
When I’m contacted like that, I normally hold my breath, especially when it’s something I really want but I don’t want to get my hopes up. Then I try to just block it out of my brain until the time limit is up.
Sure enough, two days later (well, it might have been three but hey, who’s counting right?) I received an email saying they were good to go with the name and they still wanted the keychains. I was ecstatic! I love doing custom work and special requests, and it was even more exciting that it was going to Las Vegas. I may never have had the chance to go there but I’ll be there in spirit!
I can only hope with these small opportunities that have been popping up that they start to eventually lead to even bigger opportunities. It’s amazing how my little business has grown in the last year and a half. Granted, I’m not a millionaire by any means, but it’s exciting when I know I’m on my way to getting my name out there more and more!
