Marketing Gal's first speech

I have been creating masterpieces for clients "behind the scenes" so to speak over the last few years and have always been able to dodge the public speaking arena. That was, until this past weekend. The Bucksport chamber's annual dinner has always been a favorite outing of mine, except this time around I was one of the speakers. Was I going to vomit on my shoes, pass out or worse swear? (For those who know me well, know I have quite a potty mouth in times of stress--well, okay, just about on any occasion.) My speech was brief, and to the point and I managed to even throw my trademark "rock on!" into it somehow. In the end, my nervousness disappeared, I knew my subject well and I had some killer heels on, it was all good. Thanks to those of you who wished me well and congratulated me after it was over.
In the end I was asked to create the poster for the
Bucksport Bay Festival again this year. Hooray! I'm already brainstorming ideas.

Sharing Knowledge

I was able to help a friend and fellow business leader set up her blog yesterday. Alicia Neises of Silks & Tapestries has begun blogging and it's very cool. Be sure to check out her postings here. Helping Alicia is a great part of what being a business in this small community is all about. If you have a bit more knowledge in one area, super, share it!
While you're surfing along head on over to Carol Metthe's blog:
Bittersweet Gift Shop,
I hear she's advertising a sale.
I'm currently playing phone tag with a potential client that has a very exciting new product in need of marketing--I won't give up, we'll connect some way, some how!!

My recent correspondence with Kristen Andresen, former ShopGirl now awesome MaineMaven star has inspired me to take better care of my blog, ere go, my business. If you haven't checked out her new site, please do--it's incredible. Maine is absolutely lucky to have such a talented and creative lady working her magic for all us shop-a-holics.
MargaretsCards has added a new line of gift box note cards produced by Grammie Kat, another talented local gal. The cards are available exclusively at BookStacks, 71 Main Street, Bucksport for $10 each. The hand crafted boxes include 6-3x3 note cards w/coordinating envelopes and are simply adorable! Grammie Kat's current lines include Spring and Baby cards--please check them out.
Also, I must give a shout out to Lisa of Silkweeds, 191 E Main St., Searsport and her latest addition of hand-crafted, Maine Made felt purses by: Maine Pursenalities (and more) by Denise. These handbags are truly one of a kind and are so stylish and on trend. Stop by and say hi to Lisa and see what else she has going on--can we say FUDGE?!

Wonderfully Busy Days!

Wow! October has been a whirlwind and it's not even half over. So many events, so little time. Let's see, The Historical Society House Tour was held yesterday. The report from coordinator, Dawn Elaine Danforth was all who attended had a great time. The society plans to repeat the tour next year and will have the houses on the route locked down by mid-spring allowing for lots of planning time.
I took MargaretsCards note cards and prints along with Carol
Metthe of Bittersweet Gift Shop'sBookStack's Maine selection of books to Oktoberfest in South West Harbor yesterday (Oct. 10). The crowd was more of a jewelry buying, beer drinking, country music dancing crowd so I packed up early and came home to share the afternoon with my family--a fine choice I felt!
Upcoming events: My Open House, Thursday, Oct. 16 from 4:30-7 at the Alamo Theatre on Main Street in
heavenly blueberry muffins and Andy of Bucksport. Food, wine, movie shorts--a fun time to be sure!
Silkweeds' Open House is Nov. 7 from 5-9 p.m.!
Mark your calendars, because it's almost here. There will be free giveaways, door prizes, refreshments and plenty of holiday cheer. Come join the fun! Good Food, Good Friends and Good Times.
