That's pretty cool! It's not exactly immortalized, but it'll last well, the customer's whole life!

Today I met with a local shop owner, who picked out some of my inventory (purses, wallets, baby bonnets) that she liked, to sell in her store!  That was a big one for me!  The next big one will be getting paid for it.  lol 

For my from-home handsewn wares business:  In the last couple of weeks, I've gone to a craft fair, set up a website, dealt with a "real" store (i.e. not run out of my sewing room!) and made my first two sales!  They were both to family, but it excited me nonetheless!!

That was my big problem dealing with a gallery. We have/had a contract for her to pay monthly. Last year she didn't pay until the end of the year. I think she had to for taxes. Hopefully your experience will be better. Great job on all that exciting stuff!

I just wanted to share my exciting news with everyone. I am going to be appearing on The Martha Show and teaching her how to silkscreen. Then we're making one of my paper stencil prints and talking about my collection of hand screened bags. I hope some of you get a chance to check it out! Feb 11th, 2009. Thanks,
Michelle

That is just fabulous!  You can bet I'll be glued to my tv to see you!  Do you have a website where we can get a "sneak peak" of your bags?  You have to spill the goods gf.. how did they find you?  We want details!  lol
Congrats!!!

Hey! Thanks for all the support. I'll be bringing my brand new bags with me there but you can check out my current collection at http://www.michellesaintonge.com. The show will have a lot to do with my blog which is all about teaching home based crafters how to screen print and I'll be launching the blog there as well. My blog ishttp://www.printcutsew.com. I'll post a reminder near the date in case anyone wants to tune in. Smiley)
