Yesterday was my daughter’s 6th birthday and just after we returned from a wild trip to Chili’s (by request) for her birthday dinner, I found a peculiar email in my inbox. The title read “Casting –Macy’s Million Dollar Makeover.” Of course, this piqued my curiosity and on I read. It was from a casting producer who came upon my jewelry at Homegrown Decatur and evidently appreciated it enough to reach out to me and invite me to apply for the Macy’s Million Dollar Makeover. How freakin cool is that?! As much as I’d like to convince myself that I could do without a makeover, the sad fact is, I could really, and I mean REALLY, use one. Scraggly hair in need of a cut, an extra 15 L-to tha-Bs that I could stand to lose, a pedicure, a new wardrobe…..oooooh, a new wardrobe….. What I really can’t do without though is the chance to win a MILLION DOLLARS. What?! A MILLION DOLLARS! I filled out their application via facebook and was told to email the casting producer once I did so. This was done last night at 9:30pm. And since then I have been twiddling my impatient little thumbs waiting for what comes next. Zzzzing! I’m excited. Ahh, the magic of Macy’s.
It’s so exciting to wake up in the morning, check your inbox and find a lovely note from a total stranger saying they have featured something you made on their super cool blog. It’s the type of thing that can make a person’s day. So, I decided to share this awesome design blog by Jeannette Gibson with all of you! She’s got a fresh writing style and the blog itself is very visually appealing. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I do! Here’s a picture of the earrings that she featured:
