Things that make my day

A while back, I sold this brooch, Soaring Wyvern. It was the only brooch I'd ever made. I listed it on Etsy with only one image, and I didn't even have it sorted into a category -- and it sold anyway. Yesterday, the buyer posted her "Best of Ets" blog post and gave me and the Wyvern a glowing review. I've been walking on air ever since. There's nothing quite like a happy customer to make my day, especially when they've purchased something that I wasn't sure would sell.

Ever since Soaring Wyvern sold, I've been thinking that I should make more brooches -- so that's my goal for after I finish my BFAC project. If there's a particular color or style of brooch you'd like to see me make, please leave a comment here or go over to my Facebook fan page and join the Brooch discussion I've just started.

As for today's Daily Special, it's the Automatic Ankle Accelerator! Only $25 for a gorgeous steampunk anklet.


  1. The pictured piece is beautiful - love it!

  2. Thank you! I have another of those cabs in green -- not sure if I'll put it in a brooch or a necklace.

  3. Oh, how cool that she really likes it!

  4. Yeah! It's always so nice when a buyer is that happy with their purchase :)

  5. Wow! No wonder it sold, it's beautiful.

    By the way, I nominated you for the Honest Scrap Award:
