It started when I woke up this morning and checked my e-mail first thing (as I'm sure all Etsyists do) and found that I had my first sale to a complete stranger! It was one of my favorites, the "Just Do It" Qubicle Quilt that I made when JenniferJo was waffling about starting to make art. I love the colors, the beading, and the quote, so I'm over the hill with happiness that it found the right home. The buyer even wrote a message to say that she was going to hang it in her sewing room/studio to help inspire her. Perfect!
So great news #2 is that Travelous just got his second message from someone who heard him on Sirius Satellite Radio. He got a message from a producer a couple of months ago asking if they could play some of his comedy on Jamie Foxx's new show The Foxxhole. Since this kind of thing doesn't always pan out, I think we both kind of forgot about it. We don't have Sirius (or a radio now for that matter), so we haven't been able to hear it ourselves, but it was certainly great news!
Great news #3 wasn't so much news as it was a new idea... for me... for my Etsy shop. I spent most of today working on a project with Boo so she would have a gift to give to her teacher tomorrow for the last day of school. It gave me a GREAT idea for another item to round out my store, which gives me a kind of electric excited feeling. So lots in store, and of course there will be more here as I figure it out a bit better. Woo Hoo!
So until tomorrow...
