I feel so loved!

When I first started selling on Etsy last October I was constantly checking to see who "hearted me". It was such a thrill to watch that number go up, and I spent a lot of time looking at the profiles and shops of the people who hearted me (something I had time for back then because I had so few sales!)

I just realized today that for the past few months I've forgotten all about hearts, so I took a peek this afternoon... and 2,001 people heart me!

So I sent a message to the 2,000th person who hearted me, letting her know that I'd like to send her a free gift. And then I realized that what I'd like to do for my 1,000th sale is just play it by ear. There will definitely be some sort of refund/free shipping/free gift or some combination of those things, but I'm just going to wait to see what the order is and figure it out then.

But I will take trammie81's suggestion and offer FREE SHIPPING (free in the US, discounted for international orders) to my blog readers between now and my 1,000th item sold (I'm currently 18 items away!) Just mention this offer when you place your order, and I'll send you a refund through PayPal for the shipping charges. And thank you again for the comments & emails - I really appreciate it!

UPDATE: I've reached 1,000 sales and the free shipping offer has ended. But please let me know how you found my shop, and I'll include a free gift with your order!

My name is Angelina and I live in Argentina. I just wanted to tell you that I came across your incredible work a couple of months ago on Etsy. I fell in love with it at fist sight! I think it was on Etsy also that I found your blog and started reading it...I couldn't stop. I went all the way back to 2007. The only purpose of this comment is to tell you that I think you are incredibly talented ( I am sure you know that!!)and that browsing through your blog and admiring your work has been a very inspiring experience. I am also trying to start my little company and seeing you succeed at it, surely helps. Congratulations once again!!!

Congratulations - wow what a great milestone. I just went to your shop and saw that I was one of your hearts a while back :o).

I started selling in March and recently went over the 300 hearts and realized it had been a while since I checked. I too was constantly checking hearts and getting to know my hearters in the beginning.

Your work is just beautiful and your blog is wonderful to read. So nice to meet you!
