wholesale happiness!

i am still jumping up and down in excitement from some big news i received yesterday: i landed my first wholesale account! :D

i've got to whip up 20 'green day' earring sets and 20 'the dawn is still dark' earring sets for starters. if those sell really well, then i anticipate a larger second order with maybe some magnet sets and pendant necklaces added on :).

omg omg omg. okay, calm down, melissa! but seriously, after feeling discouraged for several weeks, this was the best news i could hope to get. now maybe i'll have the courage to ask a few shops in downtown marble falls (where there are several cute boutiques) if they're interested in doing wholesale with me, as well :). putting together this first order will be a good indicator on how long making a wholesale order will take me, so i can know how many wholesale accounts i can take on at once.

i'm so excited :D.

in other news, something small, cute, and sad came in the mail the other day:

my etsy friend kieu held a contest on her blog recently, and i ended up winning this little robot charm! isn't he the cutest? kieu is putting the final touches on these, i think, before she lists them in her shop, but after that, you'll be able to have one, too :). thanks, kieu! he's my 'product (red)' ipod nano's new best friend, haha.

speaking of contests, i will be launching one tomorrow, so be sure to check back here for the details! i can tell you right now that the winner will receive a $15 gift certificate towards anything in my shop. depending on how many people participate, there might be runner-up prizes, too ;).

have a happy tuesday, everyone! i'm off to read a whole bunch of 17th century english poetry (not for fun, let me assure you: i have class tonight).
