Monday, Monday...

Happy Monday! Or happy for me at least! Had another great quilt show weekend, made decent sales, and have a lot of interest in custom jewelry, so here's hoping the interest turns into orders! I was also approached and asked to join a quilt show next year as a vendor on my own! Scary to think about, but a year to get prepared!

I've also been spending a lot of time brainstorming on my shop promotion as my sales have slowed dramatically. I've come up with a daily business checklist that I'm hoping will help me to be sure to get my promotion done as well as some extra promotion for teammates and threadmates.

Couple of quick reminders before we get to the BESTeam feature for the week: First, don't forget to enter the LaughingFridge art Magnet giveaway!

These fun and funky magnets will brighten up even the dullest of days when you pass by your fridge!

And second, don't forget to take advantage of the free shipping in my shop right now! I have my whole first page dedicated to red, white, and blue for Memorial Day and 4th of July. Order today and I'll ship tomorrow to get your goodies in time for Memorial Day!

And now let's get to the feature! Welcome to Anne of October54Gallery! Anne's shop is full of amazing photography to accent any room in your home!

This photo is my absolute favorite from October54Gallery. Even amidst the hustle and bustle of New York City, Anne captures this scene and shows a peaceful and calm park to relax in!

Another favorite, I certainly wish I was on a bench by the water instead of being stuck in an office today!

I'm also a huge fan of the flower photography, especially with the special effects that were used to create a more artful photo.
Be sure to check out October54Gallery for yourself and cruise through the great prints for sale! You can also find Anne on her blog at
