A Good Day

So, I woke up this morning with a total case of the blahs, because being the fly by the seat of my pants kinda gal that I am, I still had to finish doing my taxes. Ick.

So, I put on a pot of coffee, and while it was perking, I logged onto etsy. Where I saw this
 I could hardly believe my eyes. One of my Happy Little Pin Cushions was on the front page! I was so excited! My day was already getting better!

I received the sweetest message from an etsy shopper that made me feel really good about my items. And I also received a message from a magazine editor requesting one of my items. So I scooted upstairs to the sewing room to get it ready to take to the FedEx office. Um, can you say even MORE excited???  Another convo is making me think that my little shop is about to go in a completely unexpected direction.

And then in my "snail mail", I received the sweetest letter from someone who received one of my pincushions as a gift. I cannot believe that a complete stranger would take time out her day to send me such a sweet note!

So I think that tax day 2012 wasn't so bad after all...except for the check writing part :)
