Anyone reading my blog or following me on twitter can't have failed to notice my excitement when my meerkat trekkies went viral.
It took me a while, but eventually I worked out the trail and it led back to a lovely lady known as Dawno who sent the first article off to boing boing.
I found Dawno on twitter and set about learning a bit more about my new fairy godmother!
She has found a very specific niche to fill with her Etsy shop, Dawno.etsy.com. As she explains: "I have to wear a badge at work and the shoestring lanyards just don't look good with professional dress. So I decided to make my own jewelry style lanyards and other people wanted their own."
Despite (or maybe because of!) her full time job this busy lady also finds time for two blogs:
and a jewellery shop, this time on Artfire!
Dawno on twitter
Dawno on Artfire
Dawno on Etsy
I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to the lady who kick started the wave of publicity which took my meerkats into the spotlight, and ask wach of you who reads this to have a wander around her stores and blogs. Thank you Dawno!
