100th Etsy Sale!!!

Yesterday I reached my 100th Etsy sale! I was so excited and just had to celebrate, so my Hubby and I went to Olive Garden to celebrate! Mmmmmm Alfredo boat...I've missed you so!

Anyways! Here's what I've been up to lately! Most of September was a waste. I don't know, maybe I was worn out from preparing for that first show. So September was pretty much a loss. What a lazy bum! October was a bit better. I had several custom orders, but it always seemed as soon as I was just finishing those, I'd get more! So I didn't make as much new stuff for the show I did over Halloween weekend, which was Long Beach Comic-con. It was a pretty fun show, and we did get a lot of sales! Here's my little table setup!

It's kind of interesting going to these shows because the accepted price range is always different. Here it seemed almost no one wanted to spend over $15, with a few exceptions. While my larger dragons were constantly complimented, I only sold 3 large dragons. I sold a TON of charms though!

Some of the things I made exclusively for the con were these Dice Dragons. While I didn't sell many at the show, they have been selling surprisingly well on my etsy shop! Hurray!

There are couple more dice dragons in my etsy shop.

Now that the Halloween show is over I can start working on Christmas stuff! I've had several requests to start making some cute Christmas earrings, so that's where I will start! I'm also starting to take custom ornament orders for anyone interested. Get on the list quick! It's filling up!

Another interesting thing that I've finally come to realize, is that my "muse", is nocturnal! Basically this means I work best at all hours of the night. My bedtime lately has been anywhere from 3AM to 6AM! I've tried for years to try to make myself be a morning person, and no matter how hard I've tried, no matter when I go to sleep, it was just never meant to be! So I've finally given in, and I've become so much more productive! Only problem is it can get awfully quiet and lonesome sometimes. But at least that horrible duck outside isn't yelling it's head off, driving me insane! Yep. We have a horrible duck. And I'm not the only one who thinks so. Everyone in the complex I've talked to hates that horrible duck. How can such a loud, obnoxious sound come out of such a small creature???

Anyways, everyone is tired of me ranting about the duck. It's just a constant source of irritation for me! We don't have barking dogs in this complex, instead we have DUCKS. Ugh.

Anyways, I have work to do! I've got to try to blog more regularly, and try to keep up on everyone elses blogs...

Woot! 100th sale!
