I did it!

I met my 2007 goal of selling my 200th item by January 1st, 2008. I sold it last night.

It's my pink zoo coin purse:

Super exciting! It's one of my favorites. I'm shipping it out first thing tomorrow morning.

So I don't know if I mentioned it, but last year I decided to give handmade gifts to my extended family. I made something like 160 white chocolate cranberry cookies. I baked for 2 days straight and rushed to the Post Office to priority mail them so that they'd still be good by the time they got to my aunts, uncles and cousins.

I was all ready to do this again when I realized I didn't want to stress so much about it. I thought I'd maybe make peppermint bark instead.

So I went to Michael's craft store to buy some supplies and art kits for children and saw that their white chocolate chips were on sale. Score! I also picked up 50 of those little candy cellophane baggies w/ ties.

So today I have to go out and purchase a million candycanes. For the Operation Santa presents, for stocking stuffers for my immediate family & friends and lbs and lbs of them to crush and make peppermint bark out of.

It's sleeting something hardcore right now, and the thought of going out is really not appealing, but I must. Time to get bundled up! I will take pics for a blog later. =)

<3 Always!
