3000 Sales and More

                                                           Pins available in Etsy Shop

Hey Hey,

I had just finished tucking my boys in bed last night and I clicked on my phone to check my e-mail. I had an Etsy order for four items. I just knew it had to be the one. I made my 3000th sale in Etsy....woot woot. If your an Etsy shop owner you are well aware of that number. Back in the fall, I remember I was getting close and then I was thinking I wonder if I could hit 3000 before the end of the year. So I made it my goal. It's funny how making goals really does help you get there. I should really make some more. :)

My boys always take snapshots of their phone screens, so I had them take one of mine.

Around here, we traveled to Indiana to see both sides of the family over Thanksgiving. It was a nice little break. I always put my lights up before Thanksgiving that way I can light them right when I get home. We lost a lot of strands this year so I am feeling like my display is a bit small this year. I have tried and tried to take a picture but I live down a hill and you just can't take a good photo.

Now on to the inside of my house....uh....we don't have our tree yet. I can't believe it. There have been sick kids, meetings, grocery shopping, orders, etc. which so far means no tree. Maybe this weekend. I will admit, she's the reason I'm dragging my feet. She eats everything, this tree will be too much for her to handle.

I try to negotiate for a table top tree or an artificial but my boys are not standing for any of it. This is going to be a disaster.

Striped Ornament in Etsy Shop

This post is turning into lots of random information....I'm going to keep going. :) I am not quite ready to start baking but when I do I have a couple of recipes picked out that I cannot wait to try this year. I'm going to try these and these. Yummmm

Since I'm going totally random with this post, my son is allergic to wheat so a lot of my baking is gluten free these days. I use this flour and everything tastes exactly like it did with the regular flour. We started doing gluten free last year and I remember feeling very overwhelmed about choices, how to make food taste good and normal. This flour is your ticket, hope it helps some of you out there.

On tap today is finishing up some glazing, I've got lots of little holiday orders that are going in the kiln today. And then tomorrow, fabric collections eight and nine(can you believe it?) are getting painted. It's funny to say that because number five, Extraordinary World JUST came out. You gotta work so far ahead in this design world that I've become a part of.

Alrighty, I could keep typing but I really need to get glazing.....

Have a great day,

  1. Congrats on reaching 3000 sales!! I just placed an order after seeing that cute ornament in your post :o)

    1. Thank you Terry! I just packed it up and put it in the mailbox.

  2. Woot! What a great milestone! I just checked and the last order I had put me over the 500 sales in my shop. I am going to do something special for that lovely lady as a surprise! Happy decking of the halls. Remember to slow down and appreciate the true meaning and beauty of this season of Advent. Enjoy the day! Erin

    1. Good for you Erin! You haven't been on Etsy that long. You go girl!

  3. ennifer,
    Etsy congratulations! Now onto wheat.
    For most people it is not just the gluten, wheat is the "poison". With wheat issues in your household I strongly recommend Dr. William Davis (he is a cardiologist we found four years ago after my husbands heart attack at age 53). Through research, observation,and study of his patients he uncovered the disabling attributes of wheat and two years ago published the book "Wheat Belly". This has been life-changing and life-saving for thousands of people. For more insight check out the Wheat Belly Blog ( and WheatBelly Facebook ( pages. Dr. Davis is going to be on Dr. Oz tomorrow December 3 (although I have no idea of how it will be edited) so if you have the time, tape the show.
    Love Your designs best wishes for a fabulous Holiday Season,

    1. Thanks Claudia,

      We have seen huge differences in my son since he stopped eating wheat and corn. I'll check the website out.
