Chloe Pink Re"Coming-Out" Party

Hi. My name is Sharna Fulton and I'm a cartoonist. In 2007, I finally pursued my lifelong dream of creating Chloe Pink, a 32 piece greeting card line for the National Stationery Show in New York City. (Chloe Pink is also the name of the main cartoon woman/girl character who deals with the daily pitfalls of life with her dog, Pete.)

With just enough interest from the head comedy writer at a major greeting card company to get my hopes up, but zero sales, I tried the next thing that came to mind. Thanks to help from a talented wordsmith and Cause Marketing professional, Joe Waters, I tried to find a nonprofit who could use Chloe as a spokesgirl for their cause. I tried for a few months, but got no bites and so I stopped trying. (Definitely not something Chloe would ever do!)

So, I put Pete and Chloe in a drawer and walked away from my dreams. A year later, enters Carol. She and I met at a party in my neighborhood and we became friends instantly. She's a retired school teacher, mother, grandmother and one of the strongest, most independent women I've ever met. Carol now sings for her livelihood and believes in following one's heart.

Thanks to Carol, Pete and Chloe are back in my life. Tomorrow, Carol's throwing a coming out party for the three of us and inviting her family and friends. Actually, it's really a celebration of being a girl or a woman. That's what Chloe Pink is all about. Which reminds me...What are YOUR dreams? What makes YOU happy? I'm opening up the conversation right now. Chloe, Pete, Carol and I want to know.

  1. Testing. Oof. Oof. Oof. Love, Pete.

  2. Heh! Way to go, Chloe! Can't wait for launch party tomorrow at my house: 2868 Forest Court at 1:00.

  3. Good luck in chasing and catching your dream! It's tough work, but it can work out.
