Talk about growing up. I just realized how to use the “face” thing in iPhoto and so I’ve been taking a walk down memory lane. Again. How did this happen? Crazy but so fun. To top it off I was looking at my old blog to find a date for a photo and seven years ago today I wrote:
Still I found myself pondering over the age old question ” What is it you really want? How do you measure success?” I don’t know. Success frightens me. I seem to pull back anytime something really starts to work. Yup, when I mastered those chicken littles at Kentucky Fried, I had to quit. I was afraid of getting promoted to drive thru. Story of my life. Well, Matilda Jane Trunk Shows are really taken off. I am overwhelmed by the response. It scare me to death. But this time I am sticking it out. I am not going to let fear take over. So wish me luck in this new endeavor. When I read stories about how people make it big, all I can think of is “They must’ve been really scared.”
You see that pic in the left hand bottom corner? That was our first “online call-in” art fair. I’m smiling huge right now cuz that was probably the craziest day we ever had. Never in my life had I picked up a phone and not heard a ring tone. There was always someone on the other end. You guys called from all over the place. Yes, it was chaotic but it was a blast.
I know you are all bummed about Art Fair being cancelled for this year. I am still bummed. Unexplainable. Sam, the Platinum Team and I have been working hard. We’re doing are best to get you an online art fair (aka a HUGE massive Platinum upload) and some other fun side events to go along. We’ll keep you posted.
Next week Joe and I are going to see this lovely lady! I can hardly wait to experience Kitale and the kids with Joe. There are 2 other boys going. The reaction will be beyond spectacular I am certain. And If you haven’t ordered this dress yet, now is the time!! Matilda Jane is donating $30 form every dress sold to The Mighty Acorn Foundation. And those kids so need every bit they can get.
