Posted on Oct 10, 2011

My sis turned 40 at the end of September.

  Today I am headed to the Mixer Match event organized by I Heart Art: Portland.  I know I’ve talked a lot about this event in the past and I think I’m ready.  I have my rings in a display that is very portable, business cards and a wholesale sheet to hand out to folks.  I’ve been practicing my elevator pitch and taking deep breaths to keep calm about this exciting adventure.   I’m as prepared as I can be,...
