Well I must say that I have thoroughly enjoyed taking 3 wonderful weeks away from the shop. True I spent the first week finishing up orders and Christmas presents and I spent the last week curled up on the couch with a pretty bad cold, but all in all it was a wonderful vacation!
I got to spend time with my family and friends and that is what’s important during the holidays right?
I was just complaining that I had absolutely nothing to write about. I’m just blank. Drained from the cold. Nothing exciting in life other than cold and snow.
Then the events of today transpired …
It’s a normal Saturday – my husband’s birthday actually. Happy Birthday sweetie!!!! I was just getting ready to bake him a cake and I thought I’d check my email. Look at that an order! Exciting yes, but who knew what that order could do for my day??
In the “comments to seller” section it said “Love the gray merino wool cable knit hat! Saw it on the Lucky Magazine blog. Thanks!”
Lucky Magazine????? What??? As in the fashion magazine??? You know the one that is published and sold on news stands everywhere??? Back up the truck!
Lo and behold I went to their blog and there I was!!! I don’t think the model is actually wearing my hat exactly, but it looks like my hat and more importantly it’s my hat that’s pictured below and is linked to my little Etsy shop!!!
Woah!!! I have no idea how it got there or how they found me, but they did! This is so surreal to me! I’m just a girl that knits. A girl that sits in her comfy chair, watches the Today show and Rachael Ray and knits most of the day away. I don’t put a lot of money into marketing. I’m active in the Etsy community and I have some great friends and relatives that talk me up around town, but other than that I’m just a simple girl with knitting needles and a love of yarn. Who knew?
We’ll have to see what comes of this, but I’m hoping this isn’t the end!!
Until the next time …
