a thank you, an apology, and a giveaway walk in to a bar...

wow--! those bags went super fast, thanks everyone.

you may have noticed that i was only able to list eight new shoulder bags. due to some technical difficulties (and one of the most frustrating days i have had in a while), the rest will have to wait until tomorrow. there are a handful more, and i will try to announce a more specific time on here before i list them.

i would like to also offer a few apologies. first, it has taken me an especially long time to make my way through the insanity that has become my inbox, so i am sorry that it has taken my up to one week in some cases to get back to some of you. i assure you i am trying my very best to keep my shop stocked and keep up with internet communications, while still maintaining some level of sanity and finding a few minutes here and there to spend some much needed time with friends.

i promise to make the time to respond to each of you in the next day or two. please do not take my delayed response as a lack of gratitude or an abundance of rudeness. it is simply the trouble with the world that there are only so many hours in each day. and unfortunately i have no way of changing that. if it has been a while and you have not heard from me, please try to contact me again. as any etsy seller will tell you, etsy conversations can get a bit confusing and disorganized when you receive such a high volume of them.

i assure you all that i am very sincerely grateful to be where i am and do what i do and have the support and encouragement from all of you.

thank you for liking the things that i make, and thank you for taking the time to read my words.

i will be posting photos and details for the upcoming thank-you-for-being-awesome giveaway. because, well, i want to thank you all for being awesome.

marianne and i took a small field trip to a nearby park to take some photos today. here are some of the funtimes we had.

I love your bags. I normally only buy super cheap thrift (as in under $10.) It takes something special for me to pay more. But I would definitely buy one or more of your bags if they didn't sell out so fast.

Great setting for pics! I like the zombie-esque purse picture.

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my blogger.com site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
