I Met Some Really Great Ladies Tonight…
I went to the Heart Link meeting in Leander tonight and met some really wonderful ladies. I was a little worried about going at first. I’ve been going non-stop and am feeling a bit drained from pushing myself with shows and volunteering for the school lately. So when I walked into Keri’s house, I was feeling rather wilted, not very animated or out going.
I’ve known the hostess, Keri Byer, also founder of Austin Fairy Godmother Foundation, for a few years now. And I met her friend Janis Jones who is helping her with Project Bling. Keri’s always a gracious and awesome person. And I met new people tonight as well. Luckily, there was some awesome turkey chili from My Fit Foods for dinner. That gave me some stamina and perked me up a bit.
I talked with Trish Beach for awhile about marketing and specifically marketing for artist types. ‘Cuz it is different. I’ve seen her site before, I know she’s helped Keri a lot and the two times I’ve seen her, she’s impressed me. I’ve been looking for another bridge type, and I think she might be a good choice. What I mean is someone who can be of both the creative mentality, as well as business mentality. I prefer to walk the tight rope. I was also really drawn to Sally Whitehouse’s microderma mitt body scrubs made from floss silk. I’m thinking I need one.
I also got to show off my hooks and talk about crochet, which was great as always. And Keri bought my hat. Like literally, it was my hat. The one I made at the Crochet Liberation Front Conference at Cama Beach. “I’ve been wearing it the last month,” I said. “So, do you have cooties?” she replies. I’m glad she will enjoy it. I’ll have to make another.
I’m still processing all the information people presented and I need to get to bed since I’m chaperoning a middle school field trip at 7am. So I’ll have to share more later. But it was a nice night.
