Mia Rose tending her display at the Arlington Fair
I was accepted as an artist at the Arlington County Fair. Although traffic was slow it turned out well. I donated $74 to Heifer international which brings my fundraising total to $1,625 so far! While I was exhibiting at the fair, I met a woman who said that she manages the Patch online newspapers in this area and she wanted to have our local Patch write a feature article about me! How cool is that? Yesterday the editor of the Rose Hill Patch called to interview me and my mom for the article. I am excited to see it.
I’m busy learning and practicing new techniques and am planning to introduce my new line with lots of brand new designs in about a month. Check back for pictures!
I’m still looking for venues to do fundraising shows, so if you know of a coffee shop or salon or other place that might be good for a show, please leave a comment below or email me. And if you happen to own a location that would be good for me to do I show I would love to hear from you!
If you have any questions you can leave a comment below or email me.
I am an 16 year old jewelry designer, gymnast and student with a passion for helping others... I also love reading, animals, drawing and spending time with my friends. I recently recovered from a very serious foot injury called a lisfranc dislocation/fracture in "record time" check out my www.gymnastlisfranc.com blog for that story.
Since December 2009, I have been selling my handcrafted jewelry designs and have donated at least 25% of my sales to Heifer International to help fight world hunger. To date, I have donated more than $1,600 to help families in need around the world!
I love being able to help other children who don't have enough food to eat or enough money to go to school. I hope that you will check back here regularly to see my latest designs and consider purchasing any pieces that speak to you. I am also always on the lookout for venues to show my designs in person. I am especially looking for solo shows at places like coffee shops or the home of a friend or family member. If you have suggestions or would like to host a show for me, please e-mail.
