Margotastic Saturday!

Saturday was such a fun day! I had the privilege to be part of Margot Potter's fan club by helping her and her family, Drew and Avalon at the new A.C. Moore in Manahawkin, NJ. She had a fun little jewelry making MITI and book signing. It was such a blast to watch customers come in and one of us saying hello and saying, "would you like to make something for free?" We were laughing at how people kind of freak out when you say hello to them and they almost immediately say no, but then when they realize thy're not being asked to perform brain surgery, they become interested. One woman said she did not make jewelry, but by the end of putting together the fun little fob of crystals and charms, she ended up buying two of Margot's books. That's what I call a success-making someone feel empowered to do something that they didn't expect they could do. I think that's why I am on the top of Miss Margot's fan club-and makes me empowered to keep pushing to the next level of getting myself "out there!" We then enjoyed a fun lunch on LBI and then home again.
This is one of my most favorite times of the year, except for allergies...I woke up all puffy and ooky....ick! Hopefully I'll be feeling better tomorrow...wishful thinking!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

It's not brain surgery? Hmm...

Anyway - I am sure I am not the only one who is absolutely thrilled that you were at A.C. Moore yesterday! Thanks again - and the check was in the mail 5 minutes after I talked to you!

Ed still thinks you should hand deliver! Of course, I do too.

Hi Robin!! So pleased you have a blog!!! And what a great day you had at AC Moore. I remember meeting Margot at CHA - she's fantabulous! I know nothing about beading - and so I would have loved to see both of you at AC Moore :)

Without you, it would have been impossible! You made it such fun. I adore you. I'm at the top of your fan club too, Missy.

Stay inside, it's ugly out there. Stupid ragweed and mold.

Thank you so much for the Webkinz! They went everywhere with us for the rest of the weekend! Avalon and I drove Drew nuts with the dancing duck!

Dear Robin: Hi! it is Jean Yates! You are very special to Margot, and I know she said you took all the photos for this special day! That was so nice of you! Also I like what you said about the woman getting interested and buying the books! That is why we all gotta get out there and teach and show what fun everything is!

have a good day! Take care!
