On a normal day, I check my email… Oh about a hundred times a day. I know, addicted. I’ll work on that!
My phone lately, has been the bearer of good news lately. Yesterday, the fun whimsical store in Park Rapids “What Not” called and they are almost out of my jewelry and need me to restock. 🙂 Yahoo, can’t tell you what an honor that is!
This morning, I get a call from Ryan from The RiverBats baseball organization. He asked if Sawyer was available to sing the National Anthem! TONIGHT! He is so excited! Wahoooo!
Today, I checked my email… And I received an email that is a forward from Ryan with the subject New Artist Bio… And I thought…”Cool, they need info on Sawyer for tonight”
When I opened the email up, I realized it was from Demdaco!!! WOW! It was a heartstopper! They are requesting my Artist Bio! I have to admit that I kind of choked up! I think it is the first time in the whole process that it hit me that not only is it a dream, but it is a reslity!!! “My work is going to be sold Nationwide!”
Can someone please pinch me?
(this is a necklace I made last week… A bit whimsical, might be one if my fav’s!)
I also received an update recently from Demdaco…
They received the samples replicated from my jewelry. They were overjoyed with the work and were thankful that there were tags on my originals because in her words “they nailed it!” and you couldn’t tell them apart! The manufacturer they are using also manufactures the jewelry for Big Sky Carvers (a company owned by Demdaco) (www.bigskycarvers.com click on big sky silver…awesome jewelry!)
Demdaco will be reviewing the samples in the next two weeks and will be making the final buy. At that point I get to review the samples and approve. My line will be an immediate ship line (soooooo coooooool!) meaning, in January when it is released to the wholesale market, the jewelry will ship immediately and be sold nationwide right away!?! A bonus of that is that, my royalties will start right away too! Can’t argue with that! Hope it sells! And she said the line is going to be priced very reasonably!
I truly have tears of thanks, honor, amazement! I am so thankful for all of my amazing family, friends and clients for supporting my art & my dreams! You guys are amazing!!!
🙂 thanks & have a great day! Kris
