Wow!

Well, last night I made my 150th sale on Etsy, a monkey of course. I'm so excited about hitting this milestone. I feel very blessed to have come across Etsy and been able to sell my little creations there. I've made so many great friends and learned a lot. What a treat it is to do what I love every day as well. It's a lot more work than a "regular" job, but a lot more fulfilling. Thanks for all the support on my blog and in my shop too. Thank goodness I came up with those Gadget Monkeys, lol.

And to celebrate my good fortune, I want to tell you about Pledge Handmade. I can't really put it into words well enough, but basically, it's a pledge to buy handmade for the holidays. Etsy and 8 of their friends have started a consortium to encourage people to buy handmade this Christmas. I think it's a great idea! You can go to the website and make the pledge yourself, then get a cool badge for your blog to encourage others. Support your fellow crafter this holiday season and buy handmade.

Congrats on hitting 150! I'm hoping to have my own gadget monkey soon. It's just a matter of waiting for it as a gift or getting it for myself :)

Yeah!!! Congrats on reaching 150! Your gadget monkeys and all the other beautifully sewn items you make--I'll bet you double that in no time!

I just pledged the handmade Christmas today too--but I've been doing that for years, lol, it's about time for the rest of the world to follow suit! '
