I'm so filled with gratitude, I can barely express it. I had a truly wonderful week. On Thursday, I came home from a playdate with my daughter to an Inbox filled with Etsy orders and blog comments. I wondered why I was suddenly getting so much attention and after a little investigating, I discovered that Danielle from Etsy pulled one of the articles I wrote for The Storque in 2008 and put it in her Etsy Success newsletter! The exposure was incredible for me and I can't thank her enough and Etsy enough for being so supportive of their sellers!
As the day wore on, I received many comments and emails from people thanking me for the tips I wrote. Some purchased my ebooks and took the time to tell me how grateful they were to me for sharing my knowledge. I am touched that these sweet people would take time out of their busy lives to tell someone they don't even know, that they appreciate them. Since many of you are working on your own too, I'm sure you understand how nice it is to get positive feedback. When I used to work out in an office, I would get reviews and comments that kept me going, but when you work from home you often wonder if anyone out there even notices you exist. I want to especially thank these kind people for their very kind words:
Jewels On Whim
SimaG Jewelry (Vote for her in the Martha Stewart Wedding Contest!)
Fashion Is My Muse
Tiges & Weince
Dreams by Machine
(I really do feel like I'm writing an Academy Award speech here and am terrified I left someone out. If I did I can't apologize enough. I'm so grateful to everyone that I'm a little overwhelmed.)
