A Magazine Wants My Buttons!
I got an email yesterday from a Knitting Magazine (I'll name it later if this actually happens). They wanted a picture of my buttons for their magazine. They were going to put a picture of them and my web address on their recommendations page! How cool is that. I would imagine that IF they use the pictures that it will be a few months down the road but you can bet I'll be watching that magazine for my button images and if they do actually use them I'll be sure to buy a few issues. It's so exciting how these things can come about by having a product out there on the web and I think a huge part of this is having a site on Etsy. Etsy is becoming so popular these days and there seems to be a fresh feeling to the site these days. There seems to be a more positive outlook in the forums. It may be that their new/old CEO is back and he seems to be bringing a positive outlook with him. I also watched a Wayne Dwyer show on my local PBS channel this weekend - The Power of Intention. It basically said if you want something you have to intend for it to happen. For me this means you have to do the things to make it happen. Since the New Year began I've been focusing more on my buttons and to a lesser extent my jewelry. Exciting things have happened already this year. In addition to the magazine wanting my pictures I also have my buttons in a local store here in Ontario. I have been asked in the past to do wholesale orders for brick and mortar stores but have turned them down. This time I decided to go for it and put my buttons in an actual physical store. I always thought that I didn't have time. I'm going to play it by ear and see how it goes. I also just did a big button order for someone for their wedding. They are going to use the buttons for wedding favours/favors. How honoured I am for my buttons to be a part of such a special day in someones life! How cool is that.
