I was sneak attacked...

...and it feels goood!

The story so far...

I woke up this morning and it is a most horrible day! Never ending rain and a howling wind. Thinking nothing exciting can ever happen on a day like this I roll over and hope if I wake up a bit later the rain might have stopped...

It didn't... So I turned on my computer and watched the new Dirk Gently show on the iplayer, hoping it would be as good as the Hitch hikers TV but fearing it may be as disappointing as the film version, I settled down to watch it and not think about Frogged stuff. I had only made a few sales in the last month : (

After watching the show (I look forward to seeing where they go with it) its time to face the music and check etsy...

... That's strange... I knew I had more items in my shop than that, I wonder what has happened...

5 sales... WOW!

I was sneak attacked. What is that you ask? A lovely team on Etsy make it their mission to help us newbies get a kick start to their shop.

It's a way to support independent artisans who are trying to sell their wares online. Two days a week at an appointed time, an Etsy shop with few or no sales is announced. As many people as possible then buy items from that shop, resulting in a frenzy of surprise business to the unsuspecting shop!

So I braved the weather with a smile on my face and ran to the Post Office will my orders!

I was featured on their blog Handmade movement  and even got a mention here Sandi's T's.

Not bad for a rainy Tuesday! I think this calls for the world's best baked potatoes for dinner tonight, but more about that later.

  4. The best baked potato -
    Use this machine
    to slice it into a spiral with a hole in the middle, fill with stuffing of choice (garlic and butter or cheese) plug ends with bits of the removed core and bake to prefection!

    Like these but stuffed in the middle
