One of the best compliments I have ever recieved! :)

It is always great to hear back from someone after they have received their order... It is one the reasons why I really enjoy what I do- I love making a one-of-a-kind custom memento, and to hear back about how wonderful the item is or how it matches their child's room perfectly is the icing on top with a cherry! :)

I recently completed two growth charts for someone. She ordered one for her daughter and one for her friend's daughter. Literally about 5 minutes ago I received a message from her telling me how impressed she was with the growth charts and what a wonderful gift it made for her and her friend's daughter. I was so touched by her genuine message that I immediately wanted to share this story on my blog. :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you kbroch! Just as you stated in your message you made my whole month! You put the biggest smile on my face! :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

My growth chart *almost* made it to the front page of Etsy

My growth chart was chosen as an alternate by the Etsy admin for the front page of Etsy today at 11:00 am (EST). :) So my growth chart didn't actually make it to the front page (I think the alternates only make it on the list if one of the original 12 sells) but it was still a great feeling that the Etsy administration noticed my work and chose to feature it even as an alternate.

I was featured on the front page before though! Let me tell you how exciting it was! :) I missed it, but friends told me about it and I quickly found it though the craftcult archive. The same growth chart was selected to be in a fellow etsian's treasury (mujoyas) and the Etsy admin promoted it to the front page! YAY! Here is the list that landed me on the front page for the first time:
