:::100 SALES:::

YYYYEEEEEEEE HHHAAAAWWWWW I hit 100 sales (doin' the cabbage patch)!!!! This is exciting! I started listing stuff in my shop in November 2008 and I never thought I would reach 100 sales! Go figure that the last 3 sales were to someone in Kuwait.... WTF! I thought it was a scam at first but... It seems pretty legit. That will be the farthest and randomest place my headbands have traveled. Juan actually has been to Kuwait. That is where the ship dropped them off and then they took helicopters into Iraq. SCARY!!! HE says it smells like shit LITERALLY there.... EEWWW... Other then it smelling like shit its actually a really rich country despite how small it is... So I am just picturing a wonderful girl like Jasmine from Aladdin wearing my headbands. (not literally jasmine but you know... can a girl dream?) Is that weird that I want to see who everyone looks like. I would LOVE if everyone who bought my stuff took pictures of them wearing it. It makes me happy inside. The few that have were ssssoooo stinkin' cute!
Anyways here are a few new items in the Shop

Lavender Lilac Dupioni Silk Rosette Flower On Patent Leather Headband

This one is by far my favorite the red is so bright and beautiful! I loved working with it!

Then I listed one of my most popular... The red rose! But this one is a dark red and I think I might even like it better then the super bright one!

SO yeah thats it. I am starting to make a little more fancier things and I love it! Fun times! Maybe I am a fool for being so excited about 100 sales but this all started out just on a whim and then it turned out to a mini business! I'm thinking of doing a giveaway but I am not sure what I want to give away.... What do u think????

Congrats that is fabulous. I was reading a Spring 2009 trend report looking for hair cut ideas and I saw that the next big thing is headbands and hair clips with height, tres Francois mon ami! Sounds right up your alley.

I got the glasses off of Etsy! I just did a search for cateye glasses. Unfortunately, they snapped in half a few days later, thanks to the crack the seller forgot to mention on the nose bridge. I found another pair, they are a bit different though. We'll see how those look when I go pick them up.
