Two Milestones in one day!

Sunday, November 22nd 2009 is not exactly a date that will live in infamy, but it will always be a blip on the radar of Candy Calamity history.

First, I posted my 182nd photo in my craft 365 journey - that means I'm halfway to the finish line! On January 1st 2009, when I started taking a 'picture a day' celebrating the role of handcrafts in my life I never imagined the kind of things that would pop up. I knew I would never make it to 365 in one year, but my goal was to finish within two years - so I feel like I'm on pace.

Second of all, I made it to over 100 items listed in my etsy shop. This is a pretty big deal for me. When I was setting up my business goals for 2009 I was still struggling to keep 2 pages worth listed online, but I knew I needed to be more consistent for my business to grow. With any luck my number will fall below 100 again as I get more holiday sales but that's a problem I'd be happy to have.

To celebrate I'm running a giveaway contest on my facebook fan page. If you want a chance to win leave a comment on the fan page wall before Tuesday at 11:59.


  1. Congratulations on your accomplishments! You have inspired me to be more diligent in reaching my goals!

  2. Thanks Annette, for some of my bigger goals I write them on paper and keep the paper where I can see it every day - it sounds cheesy, but I think it works
