Hit & Run Updates

Sorry it's been awhile. Loads happening around the Y and Z camp. Please excuse the hit & run nature of this update but I wanted to at least give you all a clue as to what is going on.

1. Bought a house!!!! It's perfect for us. Went from looking for a place to rent to buying in one month flat [surprise!]. The paperwork for that was Kah-RAY-Zeeeeeeeeee! Now in the midst of packing and moving.

2. The lovely Connie of Sogni e Sorrisi honored my blog with the Sunshine Award:


These blog awards really make me happy. I need to pass the award to some deserving blogs but I'll have to do that when I have a bit more time.

3. My shops are temporarily closed due to our move. I was lucky to score great space for my studio and won't reopen the shops until the new studio is set up. My best estimate is July or August.

4. Foxy Monster made it to the Etsy FRONT PAGE!!!!!!! Holy Smokes it was exciting! The Fly Home necklace was the lucky item selected.


It was on the front page on March 30, 2010 at 4 pm EST (1 pm PST) for a whole 20 minutes of massive views and hearts until it was sold. It was crazy to see how much traffic it generated. I now accomplished that goal I thought was so far off. Now I just need to repeat and repeat and repeat and repeat and....

Here's a Craft Cult screenshot of the front page. It sold out before I could capture it myself.



A BIG thank you to RomanticArt for creating the lovely treasury that included my necklace.

5. I am in full house brain mode. That is practically all I can think about. It's so exciting!!!

I hope you are all well and I will catch up with you all in the future. Please excuse my absence while I get lost in designing and setting up our new home :)
