one whole year

When my husband decided that starting an Etsy shop and selling my jewelry was a good idea, I thought he was crazy, but I was kind of excited. And when I made my first sale, I couldn't believe it. I was a little disappointed that my first buyer was my aunt (she's the best), but my second order was for custom earrings for a customer I didn't know. That was an incredible feeling. Scary, but so awesome.

 That order made me so nervous, but she loved them, and I started to be more confident in myself.
I am currently at 47 sales, but those sales are for 50 items! This doesn't include my great friends that purchase from me in person. I cannot believe what my little hobby has turned into.

Thank you to everyone who has supported me especially my husband!

it's give away time!

Ah-hem. Maybe I should dust this thing off a little. Looks like it's been a while since I've been here. Oooops.

November is shaping up to be a really great month. I have made several custom orders, and had a few sales from my shop. The best part? A lot of these sales are the result of other sales. I love referrals! Thanks to everyone for that.
This month my jewelry has also been featured by other Etsy sellers in their hand-picked treasuries. It's such a good feeling when someone picks my jewelry to be in their treasury. Here are the links:

And then, some exciting news. My Facebook page hit 200 "likes"! Woo Hoo! As promised, I am having a give away to celebrate. Here are the details:
Anyone who leaves a comment on  My Facebook page from November 15, to November 19 will be entered into a drawing. The name picked will receive a $20 gift certificate for my shop! That's it. Easy right?

More exciting stuff to come very soon.
