WOO HOO! I sold my first two pieces on etsy today!! That totally made my day. I was worried that maybe folks just thought my stuff was ugly, and none of my friends would admit it. I guess it still might be ugly, but someone out there likes it. YAY!
And if that weren't enough to make me have a good day, I received delivery of the 475 Czech glass faceted sparkly beads I bought on eBay. A bunch of different colors, and all shiny! Oh, the things I'm gonna make.
I also received the beads Asha brought me all the way from Guatemala - lots of interesting stuff there too, in lots of different colors and textures. I'll be busy this weekend, that's for sure.
So you'd think that was a pretty amazing day, all in all. But wait, there's more!
I got my bonus check from Microsoft. Now, I had expected to get about $50 since I had announced I was leaving before the bonus discussions were finished. In truth, I hadn't expected anything at all, but my manager assured me I was entitled to my bonus since I worked at M$ through the end of the fiscal year. So really, anything would have been great.
I almost fell over when I opened that envelope today. It was a *real* bonus. And that was for working part time. Crazy. So things are good here. How are y'all doing??
