well, this is exciting, isn't it? luckily my sleepless nights of worrying about no sales was unfounded thank goodness. the nicest thing is all the amazing comments and conversations i''ve had - people are so nice. i've managed to reply to all the convos at etsy, but if you left a comment on my last post, a massive, massive thankyou for all your good wishes...if i wasn't such a hard nosed business woman, i may have shed a tear*** i'm feeling particularly smug because i didn't panic with my orders, i was very organised and took them one at a time, and i've managed to send off a load yesterday and the rest will go today. i can now package with my eyes closed. having said that, i'm knackered, and i don't know how the really massive sellers manage at this pace everyday. i've loved every minute of it though! always loved the limelight, me.

oh, off topic completely, i spoke to my brother the other day and he told me to stop swearing on my blog. now, if i was 10 or something i might pay attention to big brother, but the truth is, i'm 34. so if i want to swear, i bloody well will.

***ha! regular readers of my nonsense know i cry *really* easily

I just found your blog! I've been a fan of your work for a while and am so glad to find your blog- definitely adding you to my list of of people to see on my own blog. Congrats on the Featured Seller spot on Etsy! I don't know how you kept it a secret...I would have been bouncing around peeing on myself with excitement, just like a cocker spaniel!

Congrats on all your sales success!
I like that you swear- actually makes me smile. I wish I could allow myself... I get all whazzed out about it on my blog and edit constantly, which is something I DON'T seem to do enough when I'm face to face with someone. Another cheer for your being honest with us!
