happy day!

I logged into Etsy yesterday, more out of habit than anything. I thought my little eyes deceived me—lo and behold, I had made a sale! A very nice girl from the Cincinnati area will soon be the proud owner of my "Dessa Dreamcatcher" necklace.

The first thing I did was stare at the receipt screen. What do I do? All that planning and work I had done, and I hadn't thought about how you actually handle a transaction! So I called up my friend, a fellow seller on Etsy, and she told me all I pretty much had to do was package that sucker up!

So I wrapped it in finery, threw in a little something special, and headed on over to the post office. Then I waited in line for a good 15 minutes. And now that merry little package is on its way. I've never even shipped anything before! It was a week of firsts.

Here's the necklace that got away.
