Sunday Update/Important Announcements

What a weekend. Exhausted following my recitals and all the preparation that went into them, I didn't accomplish half of what I hoped to today. All I really wanted to do was write. But my 15 year old foiled my plans to attend a write-in in Smyrna this morning; then I got distracted by several things at home, so I added only about 3000 words to my revision instead of the planned 6000.

But I also spent a couple of hours working on an online marketing course I am taking in the hopes of boosting my handcrafted jewelry business; inspired, I added some Fourth of July items to my Etsy store and several rows to the scarf I am knitting. Later, I met a friend at the mall for coffee and conversation and found the hot pink shoes I have been craving for months now.

That wasn't the only good fortune I had today, though. This afternoon, I spent a few minutes lying the sun, and while I was stretched out in my lounge chair, minding my own business, two dandelion seeds drifting through the summer air landed directly on top of me.

Not only that, but when I was walking back to my car at the mall, shopping bag firmly in hand, I found a penny lying on the ground.

I happen to be a big believer in making wishes on dandelion seeds and lucky pennies, so I more excited than ever about what the future might have in store for me.

But since I have never been one to sit back and wait for good things to happen, I want to tell you about a couple of things I have going on right now.

First, I am blogging over at Petit Fours and Hot Tamales on Monday. Stop by and leave a comment there and you will be entered in a drawing to win a pair of millefiori earrings handcrafted by yours truly. The deadline is midnight on Monday.

Second, Monday is the blog launch of Writers LiPP, the joint project of my wonderful friend/critique partner Lindy Chaffin Start and myself. Follow us and leave a comment there and you will be entered in a drawing to win an authographed copy of Suz Brockmann's Kiss and Tell and a Writers LiPP t-shirt. The deadline is midnight on Tuesday.

Finally, leave a comment at the end of this post and you will be entered in a drawing to win a ten-dollar Amazon gift certificate. The deadline is midnight on Monday.

See you in the blogosphere!

So many lucky things all on one day! I can't wait to see what comes of it!

S.M., I was thinking maybe I should buy a lottery ticket. Or take a quick trip to Las Vegas! ;-)

How funny--I just bought some millefiore beads the other day to do a necklace! Great minds think alike.
Will have to check out the other, because I love Suzanne Brockman and I just downloaded the Kindle software to my PC in anticipation of eventually getting an eReader. Much success in your marketing course and keep the ideas and positive vibes coming--the best way to make our world better!

Pam Asberry said...

Thanks for all your support, Julee! Just curious: which eReader are you thinking about getting?

Ok, this is really strange. I have an Etsy shop where I have some eggshell ornaments and jewelry. And I also posted a picture on my blog a few weeks ago of some awesome shoes I bought. We must be kindred spirits! LOL

It sounds like things are going your way! :0)

Awesome shoes, by the way.

Pam Asberry said...

Wow, Lauralynn! We really ARE kindred spirits. I will check out your blog and your Etsy store soon. Thank you for stopping by and commenting!
