Big News!

As you know from my previous post I have been working on signs, signs, and more signs.
You have read about my favorite store in Ventura many times (Garden Memories). Barbara the owner saw a little sign that I made in one of my daughter's wedding photos.
It said Thank You, in brown glitter. She asked me to make some for her shop. I was thrilled to do it. I also made some really cute cones.

So all last week I was worried about, would she like the signs? Would she really want them for her store? Would she even like the cones? I brought them into the store yesterday. I thought maybe she would take a couple of each to try them out, but she took all I had. About 13 signs and 6 cones. I left them with her, went to eat lunch with my husband. When we came back, she had Incorporated them in her shop and they looked beautiful. I was so excited to see my art in an actual store.

Today I have started making more. When I finish these I will try to remember to take more pictures.

If you want to see Barbara's website, it's www.gardenmemoriesgifts.com.

Hope you are all having a great Monday!!

Rosemary, I'm excited for you!
I know how much you love to make things and now you have a new reason to do so.
Your signs are very pretty, so I can see why she asked for them to begin with.

Those are very nice signs. The beautiful writing is what makes them so special. I like the simplicity of them.
