"The Pitch"

Boy do I hate pitching myself. Don't we all, but on the other hand I try to tell people to go out with confidence  and tell others about themselves .Try your best to  push yourself to succeed no matter how hard  it  may be to do so .  Practice self confidence as  it is very becoming. We women must do this  and try especially hard   if  we are artist who tend to be a bit shy by nature  . It is also nice to support each other by spreading the word about others we know and what they do . It helps us all as women to  network and   succeed . So here I go practicing what I preach .Here is an  image of  my newsletter for the coming year which I just sent out   this A.M . I made it on my soft ware  I -Works in" Pages" .  I also  just signed up with Terri Brush to do a duo 3 day retreat at the  Urban Barn In Escondido Ca Jan 21, 22 23 we will each teach  3 classes in 3 days with  meals included .   I am doing" memories of the Heart " , "Just Bee" and "Hanging Around" I fun mix of many of my techniques. Here is the link to see more detail.http://www.juliehaymaker.com/site/Classes.html

                                                     Hanging Around

I know what you are saying- it's hard to say "this is what I love, this is what I do, and (eek) I'm good at it". Have a great time- I'm on the east coast and just can't get away with my three kiddos but am looking at Virginia. Have a great time!
