OMG!!! Oh my gosh!!! Does autosuggestion work!

I have tried for the past 4 years to get someone at the Abita Brewery in Abita Springs to look at the Louisiana ornaments I have created, but to no avail.

Six weeks ago a friend of mine sent me an event facebook post about the Brewery having their first Fall Festival and they were looking for vendors.

I submitted their form, sent them pictures and waited for 2 weeks before they sent an email telling me that I could be a vendor in their event.

This was what I had been waiting for.  I know would have an opportunity to show the gift shop manager what I had created on paper that which I just knew would sell at the Brewery.

It was two weeks before the show, so I decided to create a model of my favorite brew, Abite Amber. It came out fantastic!

Now, all I had to do was to find the manager of the gift shop.

On the day of the Fall Festival, I prayed all they way there that this would happen.

I set up my tent, put out my ornaments and wouldn't you know it, but Jennifer, the lady in charge of the Fall Festival was the person I needed to talk to about the beer bottle ornament. She loved it!

At the end show, we agreed to get together after January to see what other designs I could come up with, but that's not all.

This past Sunday, I received a message from Jennifer telling me that she had gotten the CFO's name for the Christmas ornament trade and that she would like to buy my Abita Amber beer bottle ornament.

Sometimes, it takes a while to get that autosuggestion thing going, but, if you believe.....it's all there for you.
