ONE HUNDRED



while i was out running errands this morning, i sold my one hundredth etsy bag!

so george burns and i decided to celebrate!

actually, that is george burns at 100, and me at probably 9. in third grade, i think. wearing hot pink shiny leggings in all my jazz hands glory.

what i really did to celebrate was make some yummy black bean soup and got right back to work!

as promised, i will make something extra special today to send to one lucky madebyhank blog reader. just leave a comment on this post any time between now and september 3rd and i will i randomly select a winner using random.org. if you do not have a blog, make sure that you leave contact info with your comment so that can let you know if you win!

i will keep you posted about the something special. i need to work on filling some orders and then i can set to work creating something splendid for one of you lucky readers.

thank you everyone!

Oh Katie! I so hope that the random odds are in my favour! I would love for a special, secret treat to end up in my mailbox! Will you let us all know who the lucky winner is? Pictures too, of course! I'm crossing my fingers and toes, but definitely not my nose! Congrats on 100! and I'm sure you'll see another 100 before you know it! You're still such a young etsy pup :)

Hi! I came here to ask you about a custom order and look what I found! A random drawing post. Please count me in.
Congratulations on your 100th order. I can see why you are so successful. I would love to see your bags in person. They look expertly detailed. Can we talk about a custom bag? No rush... ;-)

Congratulations Katie! You're the best thing on Etsy, so please give yourself a gift as well as us fans. Until Sept 3, I'll be dreaming of getting the extra-special bag that will no doubt become a collectors' item someday;)
