We just had a weekend like no other! It started off pretty normal with a bath in a sunpuddle...
But it quickly changed when we sold earrings from our BeadedTail shop
to an incredibly talented author - Jacquelyn Mitchard! We were so shocked and excited that it took Mommy over an hour to find the words (and nerve) to email her our thank you! We asked if it was okay to tell our friends and fans
about her purchase and she was very gracious in letting us do so. She also said she was going to wear our earrings in the photo for her next book cover due out in 2017! How's that for exciting?
What makes this sale extra special is that we have been severely lacking in making beady goodies for our shop. We'd simply lost the spark. We used to help Mommy bead because it was her escape from a stressful job situation. Now she loves her new job and is so happy that she hasn't needed that escape. This particular sale has reminded us of the joy we get out of making jewelry and having others appreciate our work too! Plus, the reason we make jewelry is to contribute to animal charities and that is still important to us. So, what does all this mean? It means we spent yesterday afternoon making beady goodies!
Yes I am snoopervising with the eyes in the back of my head...
And Isabella is multi-tasking by inspecting while watching Birdie TV...
This package* reignited the spark that we so desperately needed!
Sometimes we need reminders of what brings us joy. We're grateful and excited beyond words for this sale for many reasons! Most importantly, we're glad the spark is back even if it means less nap time between taxes and beady goodies! It's worth it!
Have you been putting off doing something that brings you joy?
We hope you have a glorious day!
*We wrap every package and include a handwritten note for every sale because each of our customers are special to us whether they are famous or not!
