Fame!!! No fortune ....yet

Ages ago I had a foray into the world of promotion at a thing called Image Loft it was fun at the time but I didn't think anything would come of it and I couldn't really afford the monthly fee to keep it going. I was featured in their orange crush summer promotion and started to realise maybe people out there might actually like my stuff.
I sold the featured orange striped cushion to a lovely girl in Guernsey. Somehow it's always more exciting when a complete stranger buys one of my cushions. She emailed to say thanks when she received the cushion and said she'd bought it after seeing it in their local GBG magazine. Seems that Image Loft was working behind the scenes after all. Here's a picture of the said cushion (click on it & you'll see it a bit bigger)

After this small success, I wrote a press release and put it up on Image Loft too and some more came of that. Now with a head grown newly large, I sent an email to the Norfolk Magazine They emailed a polite letter saying thank you we'll keep you in mind for forthcoming editions...(Don't call us, we'll call you). Then last Thursday they rang and said could they borrow 6 or 7 cushions for a photo shoot for the January edition...It works, it works. Now all I have to do is get my Conde Naste connections working!!!
