I'm Big in Japan!

Okay, the title is a total exaggeration! But, I got you to look at my post!

Yesterday, after a stressful week, I received my first online wholesale order going to Tokyo. The customer has been shopping wholesale with many Etsy shops for years. I am so tickled she found my shop.

So, after confirming the order, I have been walking around the house singing Tom Waits song "I'm Big in Japan". Yes, I am a goof ball!

What a long week this has been. I am quitting smoking and bumping into stressful situations, which I won't bore you about. I have to say my honey, Mitchell is so kind. After a stressful day yesterday he took me out to dinner. It was really considerate of him.

I have been taking little puffs here and there. I am smoking a cig a day. I have conquered the smoke before bedtime. It is after meals that is hard. But, I am feeling good about my progress. This next week I must stop snagging little puffs. It will come.

The photo of the Amethyst necklace is a new design I created yesterday. I have a lot to do in order to restock my shop.

Have a great week end everyone!

Congrats on your international acclaim! (hey, hold that thought!) Your new piece is gorgeous. I must stop by your shop today and look around again. You are doing great with the quit smoking campaign too! Keep going.
