Jewelry in Art Show, was hit and miss on reviews. A couple pieces I should have left, while my copper tree ornaments and hair sticks got praises. In end I did well for I got 4 sales at minimum bids, covering my costs with some profit.

is to have an Author write you into their book or short story. I was the only person there in the audience that had been Tuckerized.
