100 Sales!!!

So i finally did it!! It was a bit over my original goal of 6 months from my first ever sale but that doesnt make me any less pleased!! I must admit the last couple of sales before 100 felt like the longest hardest wait ive have ever felt!! I guess its like that old saying "watched pot never boils", the main problem being that I was literally watching my computer waiting for a sale, not creating new things or promoting just watching!! I seriously dont know how to help my own cause do I?????

Im not sure what to make my next Goal, I wanted to average a sale a day in the year since my first sale but Im not sure that is very achievable, that means i have to sell 263 (i have now sold 102 things) in 5 months. Im gonna keep positive though because you never know what might happen!!

Well my 100th pair were this pair:

I absolutely love this pair and really wanted to be able to make more but the supplier i brought the beautiful wooden buttons from is no where to be found anymore :( I was sooo disappointed!! So if anyone knows where I can get similar wooden buttons please let me know!

As I always do when I list a new item I rearranged my shop so that it is surrounded my items that are similar colours, while doing this I found that i have a new love for all things yellow/citron/mustard!!! Check out the few other items I found while indulging in this fab colour:

Yellow Harris No More Bag

Mustard Felt Flower Clip

Reclaimed Mustache Mug

Dandelion Necklace

Dandelion Original Limited Edition Print

Polopolo Large Tissue Box Cover


  1. Congratulations!! That's amazing! What a milestone. Here's to another 100.

  2. Congratulations. Wishing you 1,000 more.

  3. CONGRATS!!!! I am LOVING your Kimono style in Michael Miller fabric! SO STINKIN' cute! I just love finding sites where ordinary people are doing extra ordinary things with their wonderful talents! I am wondering if you and your business would be interested in sponsoring a review and possibly a giveaway on my blog,

    I have this blog to find fantastic products for me, my family & friends, and also to help out fellow entrepreneurs. My blog targets other mothers and wives who are searching for the best. Once a product is sent to me, I begin my review and enjoy providing an honest opinion on what features I love and sometimes, if applicable, where I feel a product may need some improvement. I have found that a review receives more traffic when it is accompanied with a giveaway. I always require, as the mandatory entry into a giveaway, that my readers view the sponsor's site and then tell me what their favorite product is. This guarantees my sponsor that their site is receiving traffic and that their products are being viewed. This also helps "Boost" Business for the sponsor!

    Here are a few comments from past sponsors:

    Gina was such a PLEASURE to work with! She communicated really well with me. Whenever I had questions, she would email me back immediately!! This was my first experience doing a "giveaway" and I wasn't sure what to expect. It turned out to be an EXCELLENT experience for me! I experienced a lot of activity during the week of the review and giveaway. I also received a large order as well! Thank you so much Gina for your wonderful personality and doing such a fantastic job! I look forward to all your new giveaways each week and I know I'll be back to GIVEAWAY more in the near future at DANG GINA GIVES blog!!

    I have just loved working with Gina and the Dang Gina site. She has been such a joy to converse with through email. She is so willing to give of her time and talents so that businesses all around can get the word out about their company and product, plus who doesn't love a good giveaway! I highly recommend donating services and or product for the Dang Gina giveaway blog. I have now used her for two of my businesses.

    If you would like any more information, please let me know. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.



  4. Thanks everybody!! I would definately be super excited with a 1000 more Ren!! Ha Ha!!
