God is SO good and I am delighted! (Back from GHEA convention)

Hello friends!
Thank you so much for all your encouraging comments on my previous post! I am so thankful for the Lord's blessing on my jewelry sales today... I was so thrilled with how much of my jewelry sold! Praise God! I estimate that I sold about three/fifths of my jewelry, which was more than I expected! Yay!
I met some very sweet fellow bloggers, and actually at one point I had three different sets of people in my booth who had all previously seen my blog! :D

I met Madison from Madison's Musings, (which was delightful!!) Jess from Dixie farm girl, (She was so nice!) Saw Mckenzie's parents again, (They were very friendly) socialized pleasantly with Earwen for the second time, saw my good friends Joanna and Allison, and met a dear girl who found me through Aspiring Homemaker! It was a downright blogfest! :D
Here are my lovely mother and I in front of half of our booth... the Mai Thai coffee half! Mama was manning that side of the booth while I was busily selling my jewelry on the other half.
(BTW, that shadow behind my back is my hair - it's so long I can sit on it)
While you have a moment, quickly bop over to Mai Thai to learn more about this amazing product! (We've supported this ministry for seven years and we love them!)
And here's my jewelry. :) My creations.
And me, at my post.... in front of our 'buy three, get one free' banner...
And me again... here you can see more of the booth...
I had such a wonderful day - but now I'm ready to curl up in a cozy dark corner and just rest for a while. :)


  1. Hi Julia!

    I'm glad that you sold a lot of jewelry at your convention! Your jewelry is so pretty! I noticed that your booth was next to the Character First booth. My dad's boss at work wrote Character First!

    Have a great day!

  7. Hello Julia! =)
    It was *so* good getting to meet you! I have been looking forward to it ever since I found out you were going!
    Congrats on selling so much jewelry! Although, I'm not surprised. It was all so pretty! I wanted to buy everything you had! And by the way, I'm absolutely loving the bracelet I bought. =) And I'm going to put it on my blog post, like I promised! lol
    Anyway, hopefully we'll be able to meet again sometime. =)
    God bless!


  8. It was SO fun seeing you!!
    And I LOVE the earrings I bought, they're gorgeous!!!!

  9. Hi Julia,

    I love my earrings! :>) I wore the pink pair this morning. My mom enjoyed getting to meet your mom. I was glad they were friendly! Ha Ha, just kidding! :>) You have quite the little set up. Looks very professional! I am glad you posted pictures because I was disappointed that I didn't get to see it. I am glad you did so well.

    Now that our moms met maybe we can actually get together! :>)
