WOOOO HOOOO!!! My 150th Sale on Etsy!!!!

When I started selling my whimsies on Etsy, I had no expectations. I opened the little shop at the urging of my family and friends, mainly just to prove to myself and to them that I could do it! I had a sad "el cheapo" digital camera and absolutely no idea how to go about setting up for successful photographs but I decided that I would give it my best shot.

I have been totally shocked at the response to Apple Tree Cottage. I sold my 150th piece today and I want to CELEBRATE!!!!! This is a milestone for me ... what fun it is to putter around in my little craft space, spending my days doing what I love best. I am living a charmed life and I love it! Thanks to all of you who have encouraged me as my blogging family. You have been super!
