WOOHOO!! 1000!!! and a Giveaway!!

As most of you know, I have been waiting for my 1000th item to be sold from my Etsy shop. Today it happened! Yay!!! I threw confetti and streamers and danced around the room.....well I danced, and if I had had confetti and streamers they would have been flying. I'm tickled pink!!

Let me introduce you to the customer of the day. Lulu is a return customer and oh my! what a delight. She and her sister Lisa pool their talents in their business called Coastal Sisters. They have an Etsy shop, CoastalSister.etsy.com, and their online store is, Coastal Sisters. They have all kinds of wonderful things from banners to items to decorate your home and beautiful jewelry. Lulu publishes a delightful blog, Coastal Sisters News. Pop over to Lulu's blog and see the beautiful necklace she made with one of my focals!

To celebrate and thank everyone for the encouragement you have given me and for my customers who have helped to put food in our mouths, I am having a giveaway! I would love to give something to everyone, but I just can't do that....so I am going to give three items. If you are one of the three chosen, you may pick anything from my shop or if there is something you would rather have that has already been sold I will try to make what you desire. All you have to do is just leave a comment on this post and your name will be put in the hat. PLEASE make sure I have a way to get a hold of you. Names will be drawn around 6:00 pm Illinois time on Tuesday, September 1st. Good grief, September!, where did the summer go??

blessings, ZG
