WOW - a day filled with GREAT karma!


Yesterday was such a day!

Around 11 a.m. UK time I looked at Etsy's front page and saw this:



Such a treat! Alyanna is a fantastic curator, so I'd had my fingers crossed since I first saw the treasury. Sure enough, during the afternoon my little tiger was sold, and I'm just off to the post office to send him to Austria. Hes taking a little friend with him too!




But that wasn't all. During the afternoon my twitter followers passed the 600 threshold! Only a few weeks ago I was saying I'd *never* use twitter, it was sooo boring - then I realised that of course I didn't HAVE to follow people who only tweeted adverts for their shop - and I'm hooked! Find me at http://twitter.com/NiftyKnits

But that *still* wasn't all.

Later that evening I found a picture attachment in an email, from someone I wasn't even sure I'd met. Fellow Folksy seller Amanda from SnowflakeUnique had fallen in love with my meerkats and created me this picture from one of her own photos, taken at Amsterdam Zoo.



Isn't it brilliant? I'm hoping my good luck will stick with me for the rest of today at least, because I have a job interview at lunch time and then I'm taking my knits to a Craft Fair. Just in case you're in Kent I'll tell you it's in Wingham Primary School, from 6pm - 8 pm.

Passing on good karma is great for the soul, so if you have a chance to stop in at Amanda's shop, SnowflakeUnique even if it's just to say "HI", I'd apreciate it :-)

Just to keep up to date :-)
the interview went well (I think!) and I actually enjoyed it (though my hands wer shaking when I did the computer test, LOL, it's not like I'm used to using a computer at all) and I took just over £40 profit after stall fees - not too bad!
