A few of months ago Jennifer Woodall, a producer from local TV "Show Me St. Louis" saw my first efforts at the pet bowl business on Etsy. I had made those listings inactive before Jennifer contacted me about using those as a segment on the show. The format offered by Etsy didn't allow me a way to offer all the options in a cohesive way, so I ventured into the DIY website realm. However, I was "discovered" by Jennifer there. The show is about local businesses and what they offer. There's a little background discussed and the process that goes into their product or service. So it's an awesome way to promote locally. So after I commited to doing the show, Jennifer gave me an assignment of creating a couple more types of bowls for pets to show a variety within the discussion. I did a little homework and added two new models ( with a third coming soon) to my original model. One is for long eared dogs that keeps their ears out of the bowls and the other is for dogs that inhale their food. These can be seen here. I would like to thank Jennifer for the opportunity to promote my business and I'm going to drop a link to her personalized sterling silver jewelry business that she does during her free time here. Thanks Jennifer!
So my sales for the holidays weren't where I needed them to be but on Christmas Eve, I checked my email to see that I'd gotten a PayPal payment and it was one of my trompe l'oeil teapots that had sold. Awesome! I then looked to see who purchased it and it was The Kamm Teapot Foundation. I thought that was pretty cool until I Googled the name and found out they had the worlds largest teapot collection. I was and still am floored that my work will mingle with work that is centuries older than me. Too cool! This surely motivates me to create more and gives me belief in working hard pays off. Thanks Mr. Sonny Kamm, you took some of the scrooge out of my holiday.
