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!
