The Salesman Story...Part 2!

     Soooo...hubby went to one of the 'large' formal wear shops in our area yesterday...I won't tell you the name of it yet,  just in case it doesn't turn out to be anything! :-)) But hubby was all dressed in his best suit, face-to-face with another well-dressed gentleman all 'dappered-out' in a suit himself! 
      Hubby was wearing one of my boutonnieres, which immediately caught the gentleman's attention. :-) Then he pulled out the little blue box with the other boutonnieres and lapel pins of mine in it, and it was ON!!!!... ^_^ ...conversation and sales pitching I mean. :-) I'll tell you what happened in a minute...^_^...first let me show you the set of custom brooches I finished!...

      3...3...and 3!! :-) ...

      These are designated, but if you want a set for yourself you know where to find me! ^_^ At Wuglyees!!

     Oh Yeah!...there were a couple of items from Etsy that I really liked on my normal 'browse through' this morning too! ^_^ ...

       Okay, now that I have sufficiently dragged you all along!... ^_^ ...back to my salesman story!...

      ...After showing the well dressed gentleman my boutonnieres and lapel pins, the man said: "You've got a great idea there!!...The only problem is that we're not a franchise. In other words, our shop can't individually decide to add new items to our business...We're a corporation, and all decisions have to come down from the corporate office...But I think your items are good enough to give the office a call!...Here's the number."
      Then he handed hubby a business card with the name of the person to contact, with the phone number, email, and website address!!! ^_^) Woohoo!!!!...I was soooooo excited!!! :-] ... This morning I'm scared to death!!!! O_O What can I say. I'm crazy! Ha! Ha!
      Hubby is gonna act as my salesman/secretary today and call the corporate office......*gulp!*...Just saying the words 'corporate office' makes me nervous and has my stomach trying to do cartwheels!!! O_O
    Okay....confession...I don't trust very easily. And the idea of trusting a 'corporate office' to treat my idea with respect and not try to rake me over the coals and steal my idea...?!!!...I don't trust it AT ALL!!! O_O ...*gulp!*...Hubby keeps assuring me that not being business savvy will be alright...and not knowing 'business lingo' is not gonna be that much of a detriment to me....etc....
      I said to hubby: "Suppose they ask me what my 'business model' is?" O_O ... Hubby said: "Then you just tell them!".....I said: "Uhhhhh....I don't even know what 'business model' means!!!! I just heard it somewhere!!!!!!" O_O ...Hubby said: "I think it's got something to do with your slogan: 'Where nothing is wasted--not even the ugly!' " ... I said: "Are you sure?! O_O" ... "Nah! But I think so.".... O_O Aarghhhhhh!!!........I think we're in trouble folks!!! LOL...To be continued! ^_^ Have a good day, Everybody! :-)


Frustration, excitement,
Great anger, Pure joy!
Deep sadness, elation,
intent to annoy.

Loving, disgusted,
triumphant, afraid.
Affection considered,
uneasiness weighed.

Cheerful, proud,
optimistic, dispair.
Euphoric, in anguish,
gloom hanging there.

Emotions experienced,
the good and the bad.
Without feeling, sincerely,
what life have you had?!

You need hope and peace,
kindness and love.
An unemotional life is
Not much to speak of.


  1. Wow!! That sounds really promising!!
    I'm really excited to hear what happens!!

    1. Hey!!!...Why did you remove your comment?!!...I read it, but didn't have time to respond. I ended up on the phone! O_O Now I can't say what I was gonna say! ^_^

    2. Sorry Wugs. I was thinking that it wasn't very encouraging. So I decided I'd take the chance that you hadn't read it yet. So.....what were you going to say? :D

    3. ^_^ need trying to delete them once they're up. All comments go straight to my email as soon as the "publish" button is hit! LOL...Anyway, I was just gonna say that I didn't know that about your relative. How exciting!! :-] And I know that people steal ideas. I'm not that worried about my crochet flowers though. Maybe they can make crochet flowers, but they can't make crochet flowers with all of the love flowing from them like mine have! ^_^ I do wonderful love threads with these fingers! ^_^

  2. Hang in there! It it's meant to work out, it will! Thanks for including my tiger eye beads in your line up! You got some impressive work listed!

    1. Judy, it was my pleasure to share your beautiful beads!! :-] And thanks for the encouragement too! ♥

  3. I love the colours of your boutonnieres. They look very summery.
    I hope that new business opportunity is a hit. I can just see you making more beautiful flowers.

    1. Thanks, Jo! :-) I'll let you know how it goes!...Have a good rest of the day!
