I always dance around the room, grinning like an idiot, when I sell something I’ve made. I’m always elated – and humbled – that someone likes my work enough to BUY it. There is no higher compliment, in my world.
Today, though, I had a really FUN sale! :0)
I received an email that I had sold an extra large hand painted tote bag through Etsy. There were 4 tote designs available in that item, so I wrote my customer to find out which tote she wanted.
She wrote back promptly, saying that she wanted the “Glittering Dragonflies” tote.
When I discovered WHY she liked that one, I was THRILLED!
“I just published my first book, entitled Dog Days and Dragonflies, and I plan to use your gorgeous tote to carry books and other materials related to the book to places where I might get to talk about the book or sell copies.”
WOW! I immediately went to Amazon to look for the book by Chrissie Anderson Peters.
The cover illustration is by Beth Jorgensen.
I can’t tell you how thrilled I am that a new author with her brand new FIRST book will be carrying the tote bag that I painted when she goes to talk about her book, or for book signings, etc. :0)
I just downloaded the Kindle version of it, so I can’t give you a review yet. I’ll start it as soon as I finish the book I’m reading now, and then will tell you what I think.
Right now, I’m walking about 3 inches off the ground, still grinning!
