Hello, faithful readers! :) I am sorry (again!) that I have been away for so long.
David (the bf) returned from Mexico (far away from the swine flu!) last week so we have been very busy!
In other news, last week I called in to my favorite radio show, Ron & Fez (noon-3, XM 202). It seems that one of the staff members, "East Side" Dave MacDonald, didn't see the point in giving his wife (a pregnant mom of a 1 year old) a Mother's Day gift (!). His reasoning, it seems, is that she's not *his* mom and the kids can give her gifts and cards when they get a bit older. So I called in, mentioned that I have an Etsy shop and would love to *donate* a Mother's Day gift for his wife :)
The another staff member contacted me later, got all of my info and told me to expect an email from Dave. Dave thanked me for the offer of a gift and gave me the address.
Long ago, when I started my Etsy shop, I did jewelry. So I picked one of the (imho) beautiful and funky necklaces that I had created, boxed it in a repurposed Altoid tin (so he wouldn't have to wrap the gift) and sent it along :)
I mentioned in my cover letter that I also do baby clothes and plan to send along a baby gift once the baby is born.
I was promised a mention for my Etsy store. I am SO excited :)
I have relisted a group of my cigar boxes (because I mentioned them in the original call) and jewelry (because that is what I sent along). I can't wait to see what happens!
I'll keep you posted :D
