What a great compliment I received the other day. I hope you don’t mind if I share it with you. I received a short buzz in my pocket and I knew that it meant it was coming from my Etsy store. Usually when that happens it is someone who just favorited one of my items in the store, or they just placed an order.
But this time as I opened it up, I was welcomed with a notice that I was featured in a blog entitled “13 unique items for Halloween (all from small business owners).”
This is very exciting to me as it shows that my name is getting out there and people are starting to take notice. It featured one of my apothecary cabinets with a link to my store. Just as I had received the notice I clicked on the post to see what it was about. It featured 12 other very fun and cute items from other artists and I got a little tingly when I scrolled through and saw my item.
Right then, I clicked on the link to my store and immediately there were 30 other people that had just entered my store also. How cool is that!
I have to admit that some days I get so excited and busy that I can’t see straight, other days I wonder if it is all worth it. However, when things like this happen, it gives me all the hope in the world to continue on and have fun doing it.
Dealing in Halloween has been a wonderfully, strange experience. I continually meet the funnest, craziest, weirdest, and sometimes creepiest people I have ever met in my life, and yet they have all been the nicest most genuine people I have ever had the opportunity to get to know and to be able to call them my friends.
I find it a great compliment to not only include my stuff in this list, but to also classify it as unique. That is how my wife has described me ever since we met. I hope it was meant as a compliment!
It just boils down to this. I love Halloween and everything about it makes me smile. So why wouldn’t I want to celebrate it all year long?

Thank you Steph, and Happy Halloween
