Good morning! I'm dropping by this morning to let you guys know that I just kicked off a sale in my Vol.25 etsy shop. You'll have to enter a code this time though. I was using a 3rd party app to bulk edit the pricing and titles of all my listings for sales. But then for some reason etsy put a stop to that 3rd party app. I haven't found anything that will allow me to bulk edit the prices of my prints since I have variations (sizes and prices) associated with each print listing. So, unfortunately you'll have to use a code... but I guess as long as you still receive your discount we should be good right? ;)
The reason for this offer- I'm celebrating 7,000 sales! I'm just 6 orders away! Super exciting stuff. I know I've said this before on the blog- but when I opened my etsy shop, I had no intentions on it taking off the way it has. I'm so incredibly thankful for everyone who has supported me along the way.
This shop feels somewhat like a 3rd child to me. I opened Vol.25 when I was expecting with Journey. She just turned 7 on Sunday. Through her I have a visual walking reminder of just how long this shop of mine has been a part of our lives. It has definitely helped us through some rough patches over the years. My licensing agent found me through etsy, and that has also lead to some pretty exciting opportunities!
So, in closing I just want to say Thank you to all my past and future customers! When I first opened my shop, the hardest part was putting myself out there and wondering if anyone would even want to to buy my art. It can be a very scary thing to open yourself up and allow yourself to be vulnerable. I'm so glad I did though, and that the support was there. I still remember who my first customer was! It was the lovely Jenna Lou. :) The amazing thing with buying handmade, is that you never really know just how much it means to the seller. It is much more personal and you actually have an affect on their lives. Pretty stinkin' cool! :)
Okay, I'm gonna leave you to browse my shop, cause I know your just dying to jump on over there right? ;) It is a quarter to 8 and I'm going to teach Trinity how to make no'atmeal. We are still following the primal way of eating, and I can't imagine wanting to go back to the SAD (standard american Diet) lifestyle we were on. I haven't had a migraine since going Primal. So, I've been migraine free for almost 6 months. I also never knew I had any sort of an intolerance to gluten, but I feel so much better since I've cut it out of my life. I really should do a more in depth post on just how this has affected our life. Just because I am so happy to have found it and wish I would have gotten on board sooner. There have been some big changes and adjustments but really it was so much easier than I thought it would be. We arent even buying organic meat, I mean sure it would be awesome if we could afford to, but that just isnt simply going to happen anytime soon. :) I like that Mark Sisson encourages you to make it work as best you can. The benefits are still SO great. But anyhow- if anyone is interested in me posting paleo and primal recipes we've tried and loved, or sharing more info I would be happy to do so...just don't want to bore you guys! :)
