Friends and strangers have come out in droves. Every since I appeared on CNBC’s Donny Deutsch’s The Big Idea show, wonderful things have been happening for me both professionally and personally.
Dozen of complete strangers how come forward to be tested to see if they could be a kidney donor to Marielle and save her life. I am humbled and also reminded the world is a good place.
Our blogging community is something else. Eileen, Patty, Daria, Lady M™ and many other friends in the sewing community have posted on their blogs. Thanks girls! And to think, we almost got a kidney from Patty.
Got my booth assignment for ENK Children’s Club. Downtown Joey will make it’s Debut at Booth #7902. At first I got nervous when I learned my booth was in the 7,000 range. But to my absolute amazement…it’s right at the first entrance, second booth!!!
And that’s only the first section. There are 4 or 5 other sections after that!!! OMG…I think I’m going to faint! This is AWESOME! I’ll surely get a lot of traffic as I’m right near the main door! I am BEYOND EXCITED!!!
Ran into Manhattan yesterday morning to pick-up my salesman’s samples which will be used at the trade show. They can out terrific. It’s amazing to see my designs come to fruition…two years in the making!
This morning we’re off to the children’s hospital in Philadelphia. They are going to FINALLY begin mixing my sister’s and Marielle’s blood and also will do some tissue matching. Not sure how soon we’ll get the results back. I surely hope they match!!! Ok everyone…keep your fingers crossed!
After that, we’re stopping at Carrie’s (aka emersonsmom) to drop off the samples for photos! Yeah Carrie! She once again came to my rescue…I know she will do Downtown Joey just right. She’s got a gift with that camera of hers. I don’t know what I’d do without her. Yes, her skills ROCK, but she is truly a friend through thick and thin…my inner circle. I am blessed!
