Close Call

Last week, Etsy temporarily suspended many shops on Etsy, including mine, because we clicked on a link in an email that looked as if Etsy had sent the email.  Because of that indiscretion on my part, the shop closed down for 2 days during a SALE.  After many emails back and forth with Etsy about reactivating my account, I finally got my shop back.

However, I had to manually go back to every listing and change the titles and pictures because the shop closed down during an Etsy on Sale run sale, which prevented the site from cleaning up my shop from the sale. 

But, everything is back to normal in the shop, so I'm happy and relieved. I really thought my shop was going to be permanently closed which caused a bit of a panic the first day.  I guess I really do love what I do. In the mean time, I will be bringing in some new pretties (shown below) and the shop will be on sale for the rest of 2012! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  And a happy holidays to those who don't celebrate Christmas!

Here's a sneak peek into what's coming in the next couple of days:

I will be announcing the giveaway winner tonight and sharing the last giveaway of 2012!
