As a freelancer, sometimes I do a little work for someone and I never hear back from them. Human nature being what it is, I am then convinced that they hate me and my work. A couple months ago, I did a handful of beaded pieces for Plaid. They gave me about a two minute deadline. Well, two days, really, but that is a super short deadline to ask someone to meet. But, I dug in and met it. I mailed my pieces in, they sent me a check, but they never communicated if I met their objectives or I completely failed... Nothing. Not one word.

So, imagine my surprise when I was wandering through Jo-Ann's tonight and saw this header to a new line of lampwork beads from Plaid. The bracelet on the left and the bracelet on the right are projects that I made them. Guess they liked them alright!

Use your Vitamin C and be surprised!

Hi Kim,
Congratulations you are nationwide. Now when I see the poster above the Plaid beads I will say "I blog with the creater of these pieces!"

Congrats, Kim! That is huge accomplishment. I will definitely be on the lookout for your work when I'm in JoAnn's next...can't wait to see these ads in person!
