  3. Hiya!! Just found you through WeLoveIndie :) My birthday is friday the second and we've just finished redoing our entire home in mid cent modern, so what a present that grouping of goodies would be. My success story is that I've been fighting severe rheumatoid arthritis for 21 years and I'm still sewing, quilting,knitting, crafting etc. I've slowly made all the window treatments, quilts, pillows etc. for the makeover. Its been a slow process but I'm plugging away. I had to throw in the towel on upholstery but I did try! Love your blog. kimberj kim.jameyson@gmail.com arthurndi.blogspot.com

    The vintage tin is really gorgeous and the also the fabrics. My sister-in-law brought one cute tea leaves tin from UK and it was so cute. And also remind me of my childhood when everything came in tin package, from biscuit to baby powder..:D

    My milestone..umm..when I sold my 1st wrap skirt in Etsy only after few days listing it..:D

    Fabulous giveaway...and till then I'll keep my fingers crossed *_^

  33. Congrats for your etsy shop anniversary, all the best for the coming 3rd year.

    My milestone when I joined swap-bot.com and one of my partners asked whether I have etsy shop or not because she's interested and want to buy my dragon plush. For me it's a reason to start having my crafting shop :)
