Today is a special day.

I just made my 300th sale on Etsy. It may not be much in light of other Etsy sellers, and the number is spread over several years, but for me it's a milestone. I'm very fortunate that people like my creations enough to buy them; I'm very fortunate to freelance for magazines that value my work.

It's not easy to earn your living this way, and I'm indebted to those who encouraged me and propelled me forward. Whatever the difficulties, however, it's worth it for me.

So my Grand Prize 300 goes to Montreal and my dear Zita. I've had the pleasure of meeting her in person, and hope to again at Easter, when I will present her with something special.

THANK YOU to each and every one of you, past, present and to come!


  1. Congratulations on your milestone. Wishing you every success in the future.

  2. I was having lunch with Tricia Scott today and she mentioned that she had bought an art quilt from you. It was so fun to hear your name come up and we were both purchasers of your beautiful art. Congratulations on 300!!! Here's to 300 more in your near future. ♥

  3. Oh my gosh, how lucky can I be?!! Congrats on your 300th Etsy sale and making a living through your art, Colette. Really looking forward to seeing you again at Easter in T.O...

  4. Congratulations. Thank you for sharing your amazing talents with us.

  5. Here's to the next 300 sales Colette. I look at the pieces I've bought from you every day and never get tired of them.

  6. Colette! I am so proud of you and excited for you! This is wonderful news! I hope to be as successful! You ROCK, CoCo!


    P.S. I was sorting through some sentimental memorabilia and found a whole bunch of posties from you from our PCF days. I love it...cuz I can say, I knew her when.....

    Sending you lots of love.

    Ms. Java!
