Happy New Year!

I wish you all the year you are hoping for!

I've had a fabulous 2008 and I'm really looking forward to 2009 because I've got lots of exciting plans and projects. I'll be letting you in on them over the next month but today I want to start with the news that it will be my 1st Etsyversary on January 11th. I have enjoyed having The Little Shop of Horus open over at Etsy so much! I've met some great people as a result (in particular all the lovelies in the DUST Team ) and have been so touched by people spending their hard earned money on something I've made. I am most proud to say I have some dedicated repeat customers. I feel honored.

So I plan to celebrate! I'll be having a very special sale on the day and for the following week - that should give us time to get together no matter what your time zone! I haven't finalised the details yet, but I do know that my repeat customers will get the biggest benefits. So if you've been thinking of buying something anyway and you do it before the 11th, you will qualify as a repeat customer come the celebration week!

In anticipation I've begun sprucing things up. I've got the new banner here and an even better one over at the shop. I've also got a new avatar over at Etsy but I'll be changing that again before the 11th as apparently it makes people think I sell stuff for kids! Not the look I'm after!
