JOY!  Outrageous amounts of joy!

This morning Mr. AV had a meeting with the director of an artist co-op.  Before he left the house, I stuffed some of my handmade felted pieces in his pockets, with the directions of, "If it's appropriate for conversation, will you show these to them?  If not, it's cool."

He returned this afternoon with a gallery-space and gift shop contract.  They LOVE it.  They don't have anyone exhibiting anything close to what I do, and they're chomping for pieces for their shop.  They loved the purse... and have asked for 10-15 more, bigger if possible.  And they suggest I raise my prices.

Woo-hoo!

*disco-dances*

(Now all I've got to do is make 10-15 more purses...)

*Dances with you*

I'm so excited. I've no idea where I'm going to find the time for this, but I'm so excited that I don't care.

I sent them that purple clutch bag with the puffy flowers you liked in the picture I sent you. I also sent some pendants and pins. Woo-hoo!

~squeee~ with you! :)

I remember seeing one of your gorgeous little owls a little while back.

More is good!

Yep! The little owl was just a flirtation with making figures. Usually I do pins, necklaces, bags.

Thank you mw!

Awesome, babe. How cool is that? Do you have any pics of your pieces that you could post?

*taps foot impatiently* Well, I'm waiting.

BTW, did you get that little package I sent?

Date: 28 April 2010 11:50 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] apollinav.livejournal.com
Why yes, I did. Didn't I tell you about it? I'm sure you heard the SQUEE from four states away. *pets Crooksy*

He may have a face only a mother could love, but he's got all the attitude a gal can adore.

I'm working on a chain for it. And a little something to send you in return.

Have you thought about a satin cord or ribbon for a more romantic look? Although Crooksy and romantic are words that seem to be mutually exclusive.

I'm working a tri-string of leather thong, antiqued chain, and satin ribbon. Picspam forthcoming as soon as I can find the connector thingie for the digicam.

<3 you!

Ooo, that will be the best of everything. Can't wait to see Crookshanks nestled in your bosom.

you, too!

Woot! Congratulations! BTW, did Mr AV get what he wanted for himself at the meeting?

We'll see. They were going to pass his resume on to another art director who's looking for a professional fundraiser (what he does). So, hopefully this will work out for the both of us.

On the flip side, Hubby has now taken a keen interest in what I'm doing and no longer looks at it as pointless. Amazing how 'assigned monetary value' suddenly confers respect.

I know! I know! *crows loudly* Thank you Slogic, I'm so excited. This is going to be so much fun. *pointedly ignores how much work this is going to be*

YAY for you! And I'll ask Dad about the alpaca wool. He isn't doing a lot with them these days-- a few other farm friends are keeping them for stud and so forth-- but I know he still has access to them. I'll ask when they're doing a shearing.

No worries, and no timeline on it either. It was just a '...hey... there's a thought...' sort of thought. I've never worked with alpaca, but I'd be itching to get my hands on some of it, even if it's unprocessed, to try.

Right now I'm buying cleaned,carded, and dyed wool. But ideally, I'd get to the point where I'm doing all that myself (get the straightjacket ready for me). It's a lot of work, (including the portion that notes : 'remove pesky, stuck-on feces') but I think it would be more authentic.

The sheep wool I'm buying is affordable. 3lbs for $20, but I know alpaca is more.

I'm SOOO happy for you, babe! Can't wait to see pictures, both of what you're making and maybe them displayed in the store? *hopes*

Pictures *grumbles* That would involve finding the damned cord thingie. I'll see what I can do. <3 Thanks love.

Awesome! Congrats! Looking forward to some pics. ;) Hey - maybe you'll sell enough to fund Infinitus???? *looks hopeful*

While that would be absolutely awesome, I'm not holding my breath. I'll settle for some small, steady sales. Something's got to pay for this hobby.
