I made a sale!

No one told me how incredibly exciting it would be to have people actually pay real money for stuff you make with your own two hands!

Today I made my first two sales! Someone is in the process of ordering "Jane," and my cousin, Highmaintenancemom, bought "Celia" today. The package pictured above is Celia all set to be shipped to her new home.

This also officially makes Highmaintenancemom the best cousin ever.

I love how Etsy has this great feature on the shop's site where you can see what items have been sold (it's to the right-hand side, under "hazeldesigns' other items").

I feel a little like a parent sending kids off to college for the first time. I'm sending my babies out into the big, wide world, anxiously hoping someone will like them enough to take them home with them (er...wait...that's not a parent, that's actually more like a pimp.)

Nevertheless...you go, babies!

I was happy to buy a beautiful necklace you made!! And I love that proceeds of the sale right now go to the American Institute for Cancer Research. Can't wait to get my pretty package in the mail!!

HMM, I'm glad you liked the idea of donating to a charity - I thought it would be a good way to do something good at the same time :)
