Long time no post...

I can't believe it. Chloe will be turning 1 next Saturday! My baby isn't a baby anymore. :( We're planning a mini birthday party for her. Just my parents, and maybe the grandparents. I've made her a lot of her birthday presents. I made her a turtle, beaver, fox, and raccoon. I also bought a plush deer on etsy a while ago. I'm making chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting. She's going to have an awesome birthday.

Well, my Etsy shop has really taken off this month. So far this month I've sold 60 items (pending payment for one item) But 38 of those items are from the wholesale order. I have about 10 more items to make and I will be doing with the wholesale order of 73 items! Phew!!

I'm up to 536 sales in my Etsy shop. I'm tempted to make another goal. With the holiday season fast approaching, I'm wondering if I can reach 600 sales by the end of the year. Hmmmm.....

Luckily Chloe is happy playing on the floor with her toys, and the cats. So I still have a little time during the day to crochet. She takes a hour and a half nap (sometimes 2 hours) in the afternoon. Plus she sleeps 8pm-8am almost every night. I'm so happy I have a baby that sleeps during the night.

Chloe is starting to stand on her own, and has even took one or two steps!! Wow!! She will be walking soon!!

I DID IT!!!!!!

As of 12:30pm yesterday, I have reached my 500 sales goal for the year!!!!

And I still have 2 and a half months left in the year!!



I will probably wait until the new year to set another goal.
Hmmm... What should it be? 600? 700?? Maybe 800??

In other news, Etsy is allowing you to change your shop name, only once. And after some thought I've decided to change my Etsy shop name. Don't worry it's nothing to drastic. I'm changing it to 72stitches, instead of seventytwostitches. I'm hoping that with this name change, it will be easier for people to find me, and remember me. We'll see how it goes!
