thank you!



thank you! i was certainly not expecting the kind of responses i received from yesterday's post. thank you all for having my back. i also appreciate the abundant use of the term 'a-hole' in both the comments and messages you wrote. that and 'butthole bun' made me actually laugh out loud.

i was able to make five more of the aqua and blue-green tough ruffles totes, and just listed them in my shop. i apologize for the lack of notice, and will go back to announcing updates in advance after today.

I am so inspired by your work and am very happy that I just discovered it (apparently I'm the last!). The bags are beautiful.

Katie katie, I've been trying to stalk your blog to see when you will have new bags, but apparently, I'm not stalking hard enough! I keep missing them. It's exciting that your shop is so overwhelmingly successful! Good job!

Rebecca said...

i love a mix between unscheduled updates and scheduled ones. gives some of us more of a chance :) you're awesome hank! (p.s. i love the purse pictures with the dog in them. more dog pictures!)

These totes are spectacular, katie.

and for everyone wondering, there are some tricks to snagging a bag.

1) watch the blog and be online when they're posted.

2) know which bag you want before they're posted and don't hesitate when checking out on etsy.

3) refresh refresh refresh.

4) make sure you're logged into etsy beforehand.

All these tips have made it possible for me to get a bag before and helped during your last seven-bag update :) Quickness counts!

And I'm so excited about my coral shoulderbag! thank you for being amazing, katie! madebyhank rocks! and i agree with Rebecca...more doggie pictures!

Kim said...

I have yet to snag a bag but I am so intrigued by your hard work, upbeat nature, and your humor and honesty!!! I love reading your blog, and I am completely hooked! Your Awesome!!!

katie,

i love your stuff...all the hard work that you put into each item, whether it is a small zipper pouch or a bag, is so evident. even the way you package your items! all your thank you cards are HANDWRITTEN.

thank you for gracing us with your tough ruffles.

I just read your post from yesterday and you nailed the whole problem on the head..."A sense of Entitlement" seems to be becoming an epidemic. I think I use the word every second day in explaining why someone offends me...
Katie you obviously work all the time...I often wonder if you have an army of trained monkeys? You are a machine. You are amazing! Keep up the the awesome work. You deserve goodness...The best.
Congrats on your continuing "sold" outedness!

I hope there is some way to block those jerks from ever getting one of your creations! ;)

Hank! Can i volunteer to be your online customer service representative? i am well versed in douchey customer behavior...from smacking down obnoxious facebook fans, to convincing some whacko that our faux fur trim is not secretly made of 3rd world dog fur..next time you get a nasty email, send it my way. i've found that when you send a polite, prompt response miss nastypants changes her tune. Sign me up!

I really hope things are looking better now :)

Btw I love your dog and cat posts too!

janice said...

don't let the mean people get to you...your bags are awesome! I'm sorry I keep missing the ones you list on Etsy, I check every day but it's easy to see why they disappear so fast. Hopefully you will be able to take special orders at some point from your loyal followers like me! keep sewing!

Kimberley said...

It's so sad that there are mean people like that.
I still haven't been able to snag a bag but mostly I just hate myself for not paying more attention to your blog. T^T

katie i just caught up on your blog and i will be happy to offer up my ass-kicking skills on any douchey loser who thinks they can be mean to you. they are not living in the spirit of other madebyhank fans i've talked to in the past. that's why karma is keeping them from snagging a bag. keep doing what you do and know that i've got your back, girl! <3

R said...

OMG! I always read your blog and when i want some of your bags... THEY R GOOONE! What is the mistery Katie??? I know! Your work is beautiful!

Keep doing what you do.
We love u.

(sorry, if my english is terrible!)

Mandolin said...

I was wondering if you make all of your bags yourself or if you have an assistant? I haven't been following your blog for very long so I'm not sure if you have already answered this question before. Just wondering! Thanks!
