Yesterday was a typical Saturday in Georgia in June, by that I mean it was beyond sweltering hot. In fact while at the ball field I was seriously thinking had I had an egg I'd have fried it up on my leg for lunch! Yep. After the game we baseball Mom's decided sitting poolside was in order for the afternoon, while baseball Dad's decided the golfing green was calling their name. I love being poolside. The dynamics between the kids in the pool is just hilarious. I remember playing sharks and minnows as a child as well, and although they still play that, a new favorite is "star". Not sure the rules on that. Anyhoo, I am rambling. Inbox happiness is what I'm here to tell you about this afternoon. So while poolside adding freckles to my face, something tugged at me to check my email. I know, kind of rude, but nonetheless I did. And guess what? Three email happies!!
1st email opened: ETSY notification of item SOLD! Yipee. It's the painting above that I had only listed that morning. Super excited. And it's my first painting sold on Etsy. (BTW I squealed "I sold a painting" so loudly that several people looked like I was insane.
2nd email opened: Was from a blog reader who had been experiencing some of the same issues with her 8 year old daughter I had mentioned in a previous post with our Mailey. She thanked me for speaking with her briefly on the phone...in a very personal way which made my heart very full. :)
3rd email: A new store wants to know if I wholesale my jewelry. Now, I have to clarify something. I love everywhere I sell my work....2 galleries and 2 stores. But they are all on consignment basis. Which means they display and sell it for me, but I only get paid once the item sells. Which I am VERY fortunate to have these opportunities. By offering to wholesale however, I get money upfront and they sell it for what they want. And that's a really big step for me. And one I've been toying with. And I am leaping into the door with joy!
So, have you had any inbox happiness lately? Please share!
