There's a little planned community in Florida
called Seaside Beach.
It got a lot of attention several years ago,
right after in was built.
You may remember "The Truman Show"
a film staring Jim Carrey that was filmed there.
It was named one of the best beaches in the world
by Leisure Magazine in 2012.
Each house in this idyllic town
is unique and special. Many of them are owned
by year round residents, others can be rented for a price.
If you are like me, a day trip there would be more friendly to your purse.
The shopping there has its own flavor as well.
Gift shops, book stores, galleries and such.
That's where I come in.
The Newbill Collection by the sea
is a small gallery owned and operated by
Annette Newbell Trujillo.
I sent three pieces of my work
for her consideration a couple of weeks back.
I've just got the word that she has accepted
them for a ninety day trial.
I'm so excited, but nervous!
I'm sending her six more pieces.
This is one of them, I call it
"Heaven is a Beach".
"My Happy Place"
"In The Garden"
I'm sending three more as well,
two of them are brand new.
I was so excited when I got the news
that I forgot to take pictures of them before
I packed them up to ship.
This is such a great opportunity for me.
I can't wait to see how it develops.
I won't be quitting my day job just yet,
but I will be spending a little more time
at my crafting table which is fine by me.
I'll let you know how it goes.
