First Sale of 2010

Yeah, trying to get to bed at a reasonable hour last night? Fail. Time flies when you're reading blogs.

Onto more joyful news...::happy dance!:: I got my first sale of 2010 today, after weeks (WEEKS!) of not selling anything. The buyer purchased one of my trademark items- the origami dress embellishment (a set of 12). This situation was a good reminder that even though it's been a while since my last sale, I must continue to push forward. An inactive shop is not an excuse to be inactive myself.

I went to spin class tonight, even though I was feeling less than enthusiastic to go. Who really wants to go outside when I have a perfectly warm home? Anyway, the instructor tonight played my Black Eyed Peas, so it was worth it. There was a new spinner that had the bike next to me. I thought she mentioned that it was her first spin class ever at the gym, so I was impressed that she kept up with the class and didn't appear to slow down one bit. Kudos.

I used Caardvark's sketch from January 1, 2010 as inspiration for today's Valentine's Day card. I also used this opportunity to break out an Inkadinkado stamp set that I bought myself for Christmas, specifically the Spring Blossom clear stamp set. 130 pieces for $7.50, what a deal!

Card Specs:
Paper: My Mind's Eye, Bloom & Grow
Ink: StazOn in Jet Black and Blazing Red
Stamp: Inkadinkado (flower vine), Studio G (sentiment)
Punch: Fiskars Scalloped Sentiment border punch

Song of the day: "Cry For You"- September. I usually hear this song during my Monday night spin classes, but it came up when I was listening to Last.fm at work today.

Now off to package up the order for the post office tomorrow. byE for now!
