the show is HUGE and amazing! we arrived a bit early for the signing, so we headed to the cash and carry section of the temporary jewelry vendors and well, got a bit carried away. i have had my eye on a pearl and rhinestone black and white bib necklace from a local store for a while now which sells for $198. the first booth i went to had an almost exact version for $17.75, seriously, it was fate.
after shopping a bit more, we headed up to the demdaco permanent stores where the signing was going on. we had to wait in line for a bit and then it was our turn to meet her. i have mentioned this before, but kelly rae was one of my first customers on my etsy shop and i can often catch a glimpse of one of my shades on her blog posts. she is as genuine in person as you think she is from reading her blog. i just love her! her story makes you believe that it really does happen,you really can make a living being in artist. and that good does come around as long as your heart is in it!
believe in possibility... that's my motto for the new year :)
