A little while back I received an email from @Crystal Miller of Southern Minnesota Magazine. She was interested in featuring my wine glass charms in the upcoming Venus Edition. I checked the website out of curiousity today and Voila ! I have been included - btw I am doing a little happy dance in my chair as I type ! The theme of the feature is Personalise your Party ! One for the Hostess with the Mostest !


  1. That is so good that you were included as a feature, well done to you and hope it makes you heaps of future sales :)

  2. Yay! Doesn't that look great? Well done!
