The Start of something Lovely... Cracker Jax

I woke up Monday morning with a spring in my step!
I had a fun meeting planned with the girls at Cracker Jax in Dekalb, Il. and I could hardly wait to get there!
I put on my "professional" pants {and accessorized with some Lis Dunn Designs:}
I made sure that I had all of the necessary product and documents for our meeting and off I went.

There is something a bit scary, humbling and intimidating about being the one to market your own items.
I love people so I don't have a problem with that aspect, but when it comes to raving about the things that I have made with my own hands, that is not quite as natural.  On one hand it seems almost narcissitic, but I have come to realize that if I don't love what I have made, why should anyone else? AND, you know what, I DO love the things that I make and I love that I am able to live this dream!
Sooooo, I prayed and I went in there with joy and confidence and you know what... they  loved my items too!!
If you are in the Northern Illinois area, you can now find Lis Dunn Designs at Cracker Jax!

***I will be heading back there in December and I WILL bring my camera to show you some photos!
This place is AMAZING!  I walked in there and it was like Christmas morning.  I almost forgot that I was there for a meeting.  I was greeted with a barage of sparkling eye candy... my eyes lit up and I was smiling from ear to ear!
