Ok my biggest Treat of the week was to meet Duff Goldman of Ace of Cakes and get him to sign his book, Ace of Cakes: Inside the World of Charm City Cakes. I was so thrilled that this made number 1 on my list of spontaneous smile sparkers. I actually treated myself to purchasing his book and on the same day found myself at the head of the line waiting for good ole' Duff to come forward and sign the book after being featured as a noon day speaker at a conference I attended.
Here are some of my other spontaneous smile sparkers this week:
1) Meeting Duff Goldman of Ace of Cakes 2) Drinking my favorite starbucks drink. 3) Completing an art doll. 4) Listening to a song by The Beatles! 5) Receiving a compliment for my work 6) Getting a nationally known doll collector to purchase my work. 7) Hearing my husband say "I love you" 8) Watching my cat "Paka" try to "talk" to me 9) Spending time in the art studio and working on my new projects. 10) Watching the Yankees and Phillies move to the World Series.
I treat myself every day to a Starbucks coffee usually a chai or mocha. It is a little thing but it means a lot to me. Also, if I see a book, a CD or something I want to have I will try to purchase it.
I don't require much for treating. Even a hug a day will do as a treat for me.
I am an emerging self taught doll artist who is learning how to improve my craft. I started doll making 3 years ago and stopped due to entrepreneurial pursuits. Now with the help of my mentor Francine Haskins, I am beginning the craft again with much more vigor and interest. Please share this journey with me.
