give-away / goal!

I can't believe I'm nearly at 3000 sales in my Etsy shop!  I know if I tallied my off-Etsy special orders to the mix, I'd be well over that figure, but hitting 3000 on Etsy alone will be super-exciting.  Unfortuantely, I don't have much stock at the moment, so I'm doing two things to help nudge me over the edge this month. 

1.  Give-away!  FIVE lucky shoppers (from 4/15-4/21) will receive a free surprise batt in their order, and ONE extra-lucky shopper will receive a 4-month Batt Club subscription!  All you need to do in order to enter this give-away is type "batty" in the message-to-seller box at check-out.  The reason I'm having anyone type anything at all is because some people don't care for extras in their orders.

2.  I'm having a wee update tonight.  Sadly, I don't have too much new to post, but there are quite a few one-of-a-kind batt sets, which adds a bit of excitement to the shop.  I love drumming unique sets- it gives me a chance to experiment with color and texture without committing a whopping 12+ oz. to a multiple-quantity listing. 

here's a few of the sets:
While I'm not counting on it, it would be really swell to hit my goal of 3000 sales by my birthday (which is tomorrow). 



I'm lapsing into my old habit of not posting very frequently.  Oops.  I had big plans for March, but nothing seemed to work out right- my wool order arrived two weeks late, Ingrid was a sad fussy baby, we had a roof leak in our bedroom, etc.

Each month (thankfully) feels like a fresh start, however, and April is feeling deliciously fresh.  Seriously, could this Easter Sunday be any more beautiful?  I had put together an Easter basket for Ingrid, complete with teething rings, rattles, and a new sleeper- and at the last minute, kindly decided not to make her search the house for it.  haha!  After we washed off her new toys, I hung laundry in the sunshine and we all went over to my parents' house to dye eggs and eat dinner.

I hope everyone is enjoying the weather (if they have this lovely sunny stuff that we have!)
