Meet Fiona, a dear friend's cat who lives in Pacific Grove. She's a mere five pounds and a real spitfire. Typical for an Abysinnian. I miss her! She's quite difficult to photograph because she's all over the place, but this day she was being flirtatious and I happened to be ready! I think she makes a nice model for my print.
Now, about my comfort zone! Yesterday KJ posted some marketing advice, and even though I already have the booklet she used examples from, I felt like she was aiming the advice at me personally.
When she visited me in December just before Christmas, I took her to one of my most favorite shops. The shopkeeps are a delightful husband and wife creative force. I never want to leave once I step inside. Well, KJ has been bugging me to introduce my wares because she thought my art would be a good fit there. I hate doing that!
But yesterday I printed four cards that I thought would reflect the good taste of the shop, walked in, apologized for cold-calling and walked out with a huge order and new friends!
Please have a look around at Grasmere. You won't want to leave!
Here's another bonus to this meeting. Beth, the wife of the team is also a well known area dog trainer who has been looking for someone with pet nursing skills to help with some of her clients! I hope to be working with her to help animals soon.
It was serendipity yesterday.
Thank you KJ, and also to Peter and Beth and their sweet Rhodesian Ridgeback greeter, Mattie.♥
