First sale yesterday!!!! Yay!!!!

Funny story - I haven't listed anything on my site in a while because of just 'life' getting in the way then I hurt my back pretty badly when I was delivering a wedding cake.  So, I made it a goal this week to get my next project done and listed since my other stuff wasn't selling.  Yesterday (Saturday) I started out the day gathering my things, going to my friend's house who lives 1/2 hr away so I could use her 4 yr old daughter as my model.  Well, I got there right after there was a mild skirmish in her household (I found out later) and the atmosphere was quite tense and I could tell.  But, I had an agenda!!  And the 4 yr old seemed cooperative.  Well, after we had to scrounge around for batteries for the camera because mine died, I tried to take pics of her but the mom and sister kept "helping" and the pics turned out horribly!  I think I did get one I can use.  So, I get to the studio where I do some of my work and the goal was to trim up the items and get the pictures taken.  In the midst of getting my area set up, I dropped the camera!!!!  The batteries fell out and it seems that the color isn't working as well.  I think I killed it.  I took pictures anyway.  Sooooo....I get home to get the listings on etsy (no internet yet at the studio),downloaded my pics from the camera and on to photobucket but my laptop won't show the pictures!!!!!  AAHHH!!!  I restarted, clicked, pushed, prayed, contemplated getting a hammer then just decided to try another day.

During the frustrating picture search, I was in the etsy chat room, hoping to get some comaradery and just to get a bit of relief from the day.  I never did get my new items listed!  But, while in the chat room, someone (in the chat room) bought one of my original items!!!!  heehee.  I think that's funny.

craftinator, your story totally made me laugh. Sounds like something that would happen to me! Smiley

ok . . . can i get a drumroll . . . i just made my 100th sale!!!!!  I'm super excited (not least of all cause the boyfriend and I are going out for a swanky dinner to celebrate!)  I'm so in love w/ Etsy right now . . . when i first opened my shop in February I thought I'd sell a handful of things at most, but the response to my jewelry and purses (and neckwarmers!) has been so overwhelming and gratifying.  And best of all, I've managed to save every cent I've made from my Etsy sales and that money is going towards the dream wedding in Wales that my boy and I are planning Smiley  Its going to be extra special knowing that my crafting skills are paying for something so special!

yippeeee!!!!! Smiley
