Hi all! Whew, what a year it's been already! I wanted to tell you my biggest news!
I made my first sale! :) It was right before the new year. I have made a Facebook fan page for my bracelets if you would like to "like" it, the link is here! It was so exciting and I made her bracelet in record time. I love that I'm getting faster and better at making them. Also, I'm thinking about offering different colors with the green ribbon charm. I'm planning on making some variation of red or pink bracelets for Valentine's Day.
This past weekend was quite busy! On Saturday, I had my first rehearsal with Miss Solano. I had a ton of fun and I learned SO much! That's what I love about this organization, you're always learning. Sarah and Gabino are so warm and welcoming, I felt right at home. It was a little nerve-wracking to practice walking, but I think we were all a little nervous. The girls were very friendly as well, so that calmed my nerves a little.
On Sunday, I moved back up to school in the morning and then went to the Miss Sonoma County rehearsals. It was a long day! At the rehearsals, I saw a few familiar faces and met a few new girls. The walking this time was not scary because I already knew it. On a side note, I sang my new talent song for a few friends and it is so amazing to see how nervous I was singing my NEW talent song for them, compared to singing my OLD talent song for them. I guess I need to practice a little. :) After walking rehearsals, we drove over to Mary's house, the girls enjoyed an always delicious dinner and then started interview practice. Unfortunately, I had to leave early for my job, but I was excited to see my coworkers, too.
After that, it's just been a busy, busy week in CSA training. Today I am volunteering at the Alameda Food Bank with my entire staff. I am looking forward to a day of service and fun! :)
