Thank the Stars for Etsy!!

I'm so grateful for it. I've recently made my FIRST SALE to a wonderful person named Tyler; we're past associates on eduFire. Annnnd today I received the earrings I purchased from BelladonnaBeads. Not only did I get an amazing deal on them, but Shelley, the owner, was so kind enough to also send along a free gift of the rainbow candy earrings I'd been interested in prior to the sale. (A lot of links in this post, I know, lol.)

Absolutely gorgeous, the both of them! They'll look great in my ears when I can put them in. I recommend her to any jewelry fan ten times over, and I'll be back there again around the holidays for sure.

I'm still not sure what to do. So much great stuff is going on, I feel like I should give back, but I honestly can't find anything decent. Custom art isn't as popular as accessories and whatnot. Hm.. I'll figure it out soon, you guys, I promise.

Not a problem. Always glad to help out a fellow artist. I've always looked at your pieces and wanted some ever since I saw them. Now that I had the money I finally could get one.

Congratulations on your first sale! I hope you have many, many more. :)

Those earrings are lovely. That was super nice of her to send you a free gift. There are so many wonderful people on Etsy. I'm so glad I made the switch from Ebay.

Tyler, you are such a kind person. It warms my heart that there are people out there outside of friends and family who appreciate my work; it's encouraging. Thank you so, so much.

Thanks Cindy! Your giveaway is amazing! I bet your shop has gotten lots of attention for it. Congrats. :) [I haven't entered simply because I don't want to take that dress away from someone who could actually fit in it. And I've won quite a bit lately. Lovely dress, though!]

Yay! Your first sale!!!! That is the best feeling ever! It is a good thing it is to someone you know, you can pick their brain about the packaging and the preocess in general. (My first sale was to my Mom!) you will get the elated feeling all over again when you make your first "stranger" sale! YAY! Congrats!!!

Laura said...

Cindy, forgive me, it's been a long day: to what are you hinting? I've posted pics of some. (Forgive my slowness please!) :x
