Oh... the last couple of months have been pretty slow for me. But on the bright side... I am so close to hitting 100 sales... I'm sitting at 95 sales and 395 hearts, so I will be hitting some milestones soon. yay. I tried to get my hubby to buy 5 things from me off my site, but he said no! Why buy the cow, when you can get the milk for free..right!

I had a strange thing happen with my new tote I listed yesterday??? The counters actually went down... I'm glad to hear that the counters were having problems and my vision is no messed up... I was starting to doubt myself.

Sooo I woke up this morning checked my etsy shop and what did I find? MANY MANY fewer items! I was like HOLY CRAP I SOLD 18 items over night!? But noooo items had expired!

D'oh! I'm such a dork.  Roll Eyes

I'm working on relisting them through out the day and next week.

same thing happened with me...I wish I would have sold them instead!

that coat is so cute... just wondering, did you make the pattern up yourself or is it a purchased one... if so which? I would love to make a coat like this for my daughter when she is older... or at least when she can stand  Grin

great job.

thanks ellanade and gothmom for your opinions... it really is difficult to know what everyone wants... I do agree that there is a gap in the man bag department. My hubby wants me to make laptop bags with REALLY good padding. Most of the laptop bags out there don't use really good padding, which is important when you are carrying your favorite laptop around... I'm thinking on that one. I have to get better at doing zippers... sigh...

ok... back to the sewing machine.

I think it's incredibly stupid of people to be annoyed if you're at the PO mailing things. Sure, I guess if they're in a hurry they may feel stressed, but YOU aren't the reason they're feeling rushed! If they're so damn busy, they should go when the PO is dead... around 3pm here. If you don't have time to wait in a line, don't go on your 30 minute lunch break, moron!

Ha ha... that's what I think...

Anyhoo... I mailed off all my packages today... took my sweet ass time doing it too, and had a lovely chat with my postal girl... I <3 my postal girl... I should craft her something... hummm

anyhoo... mine are all out and sent.

Beag... I LOVE those mirrors... they are stunning. I can't believe you cut those by hand. I don't think I would have had the patience.  I have about 10 of those mirrors in my basement, I had big plans for them but haven't gotten around to it. I keep trying to get my husband to do some paintings on them... maybe he will sometime soon.

I also love the new ring you posted.

Hello everyone. Congrats to those with recent sales. I just sold a pair of catnip toys for $5.
I can't remember who was talking about someone messaging them on etsy and wanting to buy in large quantities from them? It may be a total scam, read this new post by one of the moderators: http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=5060421

This was actually an immediate and malicious thing ..not somebody messaging people about requests for large amounts.  A person went into the shops of a few very specific people who were regulars in the forums and bought out dozens of their things under a fake name (I believe it was "don'tf#[email protected]) just to cause them trouble.  There have also been a few cases of top sellers having "stalkers" who do this to them regularly, particularly when their items show up on the front page, and I know one person who received actual threats in the mail - like the regular mail.  It's really a bummer ( Angry) but in no way related to requests for lots of things, since no payment is ever discussed or made.  Can you believe some people?!?

*edit - also, admins have figured out who the person is, and are going to press charges.  Woohoo!!*

my jaw drpped when i read this...that is SO wrong...what is wrong with people. Huh

I live in my craft room... well pretty much anyways. Thats why its a disaster Wink It's the smallest room in the house and its used all day. My laptop is beside my sewing machine (actually hooked up to it) so I am constantly on craftster and etsy... I'm such an addict. My poor neglected daughter  Wink just kidding, I always have time for snugglin' with her.

I am all done my ipod holders... I made them all yesterday plus 8 more for my shop...yay! Now I'm just waiting to send them out.
