Cash and carry jewels with a heap of possibilties
I should have blogged about this two days ago. But it took me that long to recover from all the excitement of being at the Atlanta gift show and meeting one of my favorite artists and bloggers, Kelly Rae Roberts. It was literally a spur of the moment change in plans to go. Thanks to my friend Suzanne, my other friend Tiffin and I were in at the last minute. Being 7 months pregnant and running thru the temporary jewelry area of the cash and carry section and then huffing it to another building to wait in line was a little like an Olympic event. Once we were in line outside Demdaco's permanent showroom I was so excited to meet Kelly Rae.
She was there signing wall canvases and promoting her inspirational line of paintings, ornaments, and wall plaques. I was so excited to meet her. She was as lovely in person as she is in her wonderful blog posts. I know it was seconds of conversation but you can tell she is where she is for a reason. So fantastic to have met an indie artist that has made it doing exactly what she loves to do. It gives me inspiration that it is very possible to be a full time artist and be successful at it. Put it into the universe and believe in possibilities:) I don't think I would be where I am today if it were not for believing in possibilities with so many things in my life right now. What a great whirlwind of an evening.
