The Day of the Great Newses

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...

I'm so proud of you, you work hard at your art and deserve a break. The thunder may intimidate you with its boom but you shouldn't be afraid of it, its the silent lightning that should put the fear in you. Did you see where 5 teens got struck by the lightning just up the block from us, we heard all the sirens and figured someone was out in the storm, Have you ever heard of anyone being struck by thunder?

Oh yes Mother Dearest, that's quite the point you make there. Now everyone can see where I get my optimism!
