...And Things Were Going So Well

Well, after several posts of awesome news...I have some bad news. I applied for a craft show in Atlanta, GA called the Indie Craft Experience, but I just got word today that I didn't get in....sad face. *sniffle*

It's all good though...I will keep applying to craft shows and one of them will recognize my talent! (This is optimistic Diana writing now...hehe) Guess I need to work on my photography skills and descriptions of my products and business.

Anyways....quotes always make me feel better, so here's one that I think is fitting of the news today:

"That's what learning is, after all: not whether we lose the game, but how we lose and how we've changed because of it, and what we take away from it that we never had before, to apply to other games. Losing, in a curious way, is winning."
- Richard Bach

So, to all you guys out there who are working towards fulfilling your dreams....remember to make the best out of your down times. In every experience, even the bad ones, you grow as a person and learn something new. Keep fighting and keep dreaming!

DCL Jewelry now at Boutique Jonquille

DCL is moving north! I've been doing tons of research, looking for hip, new boutiques to carry my latest jewelry designs. Recently, a new boutique has decided to start selling my jewelry...yay! I sent several designs to Boutique Jonquille, located in New York, NY this weekend. Their web site says, "Boutique Jonquille started out of a passion to bring tasteful and elegant accessories to women in an industry crowded with mass produced and ordinary."

Inside shot of the boutique - cute, huh?

A couple designs the boutique requested are one-offs, so those will now only be available via their web site or their brick and mortar store...unless I can get some more beads to remake them, but many of my beads/components are limited edition or one-of-a-kind. For designs that are marked "sold" on the web site, check the description area to see if a boutique has the item for purchase (if no boutique carries the item you desire, please contact me about designing something similar - I love doing custom work). Here are a couple designs that Boutique Jonquille will be carrying:

Aquatic Aquamarine

Limu Moui



Live in NY? Boutique Jonquille will be selling some of my designs at art & craft shows (see their web site for details). Or, just stop by their boutique:

Quote - Dreams

I found an awesome quote when I was at Barnes & Noble a few weeks ago (I should have posted it sooner...sorry!). It was on one of those mini-notebooks in one of those little "impulse buy stands" near the registers. Anywho, here's the quote:

"The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream"
~James Allen

This is so true for so many people. I'm sure a lot of your best ideas started out as mere dreams. Maybe these ideas were dreams for a short time...maybe longer...maybe they still are. At some point, you decide to see where you can go with your dream! Hey, if you have a dream that's close to your heart today, you should go for it! Maybe start out with small steps and ease your way to success! ;-)

One of my dreams is to be a famous jewelry that my designs are at Maddi's Gallery, I am (hopefully) taking a step in the right direction!
