That's a note to my nephews, not to myself. :)
My sister told me to not to get discouraged when I hadn't heard back from a potential client, but rather ask again. Silence isn't necessarily a no, it could be that the person is busy, forgot to write back, or lost the original request. So, having learning from past mistakes, I listened to my sister this time and wrote again to this person. This time, she did respond and said she's still very interested and looking to order 425 letters from me! This won't allow me to quit work and retire right away but it's a good start to hopefully something bigger. She's looking for alphabet letters like the ones below, but in bright colours. Good thing I picked up some hot pink colouring earlier because that's the sort of colours she's looking for.
In the meanwhile, I'm also working on putting together a presentation for the Vancouver Aquarium and Science World. With any luck, they'll want to support a little local company that has a good product to offer.
