Sneaky plans and clever tricks...

I've been painting with acrylics since Christmas.  Have gifted six paintings to friends, and friends of friends.  I wandered into the local children's bookstore with Aidan one day....just so happened to have the Owl and Pussycat with me, and asked if they would be interested in selling them.

The first thing the owner asked was if I had a card.

Added that to the to-do list.

I took his card and gave him my e-mail address.  Thanked him.  Left.  Didn't really think I'd hear back.

One week later owner of said store e-mailed to say they would love to sell them.  The nursery-rhyme-inspired ones.

Not a rejection. 


To-do list just got bigger.
