Congrats to you myrosiedog! Well-deserved and very nice that you have been recognized for all your efforts and interest!
buglover: Congrats to your hubby as manager too! That sounds like you are now in a good position for the future!
My little good news is that I got asked by a very prestigeous event planner here in the City if I was available to facepaint at a bat mitzvah in the spring. This would be my first pro gig here. I checked her website and she only organizes premier events such as the Queen's visit, big charity events, and very nice private affairs. A lady who was in the same bodypainting course forwarded my name to her. That was so nice. I love Karma. It's not until May, so I still have to see if the client goes for it. I also recommended my sweetie as a caricaturist. He is usually a hit at bar mitzvahs and mat mitzvahs.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed. It will be nice to make a little money and make a good business connection.
