Today, I am honored and thrilled to learn that Martha Stewart and her talented staff at marthastewart.com have selected me as their Doer of the Week! To be recognized by someone who has fully inspired and motivated me to realize my dreams is most amazing to say the least! Martha's passion for Halloween in particular gave me hope to pursue my niche in all things October 31st, and I am so happy for the support and interest from so many fans who admire my holiday designs today! And, how very exciting it is to receive the seal of approval from Martha Stewart ~ oh my, I am pinching myself! :) Thanks also to my fellow artist friends, Kristen Beason and Kitty Forseth for urging me to be an entrant in Martha's Dreamers into Doers Contest. Along the way, I joined their online community of Dreamers into Doers, met many clever entrepreneurs and the rest is history! I am one of 10 finalists for this special newsletter series contest, and there will be a public vote later this month, so stay tuned! Below is an excerpt from Martha's e-newsletter that went out today! ENJOY!
