FISH-A-LICIOUS


Something Fishy is going on here! Yes, I finally finished my fish handbag and I named it FISH-A-Licious which I thought was brilliant (heehee at how I entertain myself). This was my second offering for the Bags2riches contest.
It was quite the ordeal in thinking about how I would make a purse look like a fish. I don't even want to go into the "why" of that project. Let's just say it is art honey and go with it. I can't explain why my brain works the way it does....I just go with it and that seems to work best for me. I'm sure that someone will like it in this world. I once read a quote somewhere (don't remember exactly how it went) that said essentially that for every piece of art, there is someone in this world that will love it. So, hope that person finds this! LOL
On another note, the book proposal was rejected by PUBLISHER NUMBER ONE. Now let me first say that while I don't enjoy blogs that are dark and negative and moody, I do appreciate when people share their real life experiences. That being said, I just want to tell you that it did make me sad for a moment (ok a whole evening). I did question myself and my talents. I am not one to stay down for long. The next morning, my best friend called me and she said the most wonderful thing. She said, "it took John Grisham 150 proposals to get published". It just made me remember that when you want something you have to be persistent and persevere. I'm moving on to PUBLISHER NUMBER TWO. I will be working on my plan this weekend. I will never give up on my dreams no matter what anyone tells me. Also, remember this.....
THAT WHICH DOES NOT KILL YOU MAKES YOU STRONGER!!!

I love your purse and I agree, it will happen. As far as District 9, if you like Sci-Fi, you must see it. It is realistic and gritty and I loved it!

First...love the purse. Like REALLY love the purse...for real!
Second, my first response as I read your publisher woes was "Are you kiddin? That was only one!" There are sooo many reasons to say no. One might just be the financial timing for THAT day! I would stay persistant and if you had received an OK the first time out, I would immediately drive down and by a lottery ticket!
