A Day I Won't Forget

Last Wednesday, February 12, when I woke up, I knew it was going to be a day I wouldn't soon forget. And it wasn't because the weather forecast was calling for freezing rain and ice accumulations. No. I was awakened at 6:00 AM because my daughter was having contractions. She was in labor and had been for 5 hours! I was soon going to be a Grandmother!!! Whoa, the day had finally arrived....

Well, we got her to the Birthing Center before the roads froze and then went back home to await the news.  I went about my morning as usual. Signed onto the internet to check my mail, checked my Etsy shop stats and Facebook. And.... What was that!!! A picture of one of MY items on the Polymer Clay Daily Facebook page!!!! What!!!

OH MY GOSH!!! One of my secret dreams had come true!!! I was the featured artist that day!

Just as I was excitedly calling my husband to "LOOK!!!" the power flickered out!  And it didn't come back on for 15 hours..... No internet, no heat, no land line and a cell phone with a battery about to die. What a long day it was....waiting....patiently waiting.....But by mid-afternoon we received the news. My husband and I were the grandparents of a healthy baby girl.

And as for my 15 minutes of fame, well my Facebook fans grew throughout the day, my Etsy shop had record views, I sold a couple of items and all in all I felt like I was a star. So although the weather was less than ideal and I felt cut off from the rest of the world, it turned out to be a fantastic day!!!

This is the item that was featured in honor of Valentine's Day
