Two celebrations.

One is that I just had my 100th sale on Etsy.  That doesn't count doll shows or art fairs, but given how scary it was to open a doll store, and how sure I was that I was wasting my time for the first several months, I'm kinda tickled about it.  Granted--a whole lot of those sales were Walnut Ink and Rabbit Patterns, but I'll celebrate.  What is is about hitting a benchmark of 100 that feels like such an accomplishment?  Why is 99 not terrific, or 103? 

The second is not really a celebration, just a silly little rag doll on Ebay.  She's the first of the Linen Sisters, very simple and homey. I was ready for another auction...because even when it doesn't go the way I want, it's still exciting to put one up.  I don't go to Vegas, don't play poker or by lottery tickets...so maybe a doll auction is as much gambling as I can stand.  


Hope your week is FABULOUS!
