Mashable-d, Megacon, upcoming stuff

Wed Feb 29, 2012, 10:32 AM

So things got very very crazy right before Megacon when my 8bit LOVE necklace made Mashable. O_O I was on a supply run to Jacksonville at the time and couldn't believe how fast the orders were coming in! Trying to manage from my phone was difficult; I made more sales than I usually do in a month in less than 48 hours, and the majority were international. I've never been up until 2:30AM just packing orders before! It was total insanity. It was great though, especially the customers who got back to me about how it was their first Etsy order and how their SO got it for Valentine's and loved it. I don't quite understand Mashable but let me say a big THANKS here to the editor who not only chose my necklace to include but had it as the thumbnail for the article.

Megacon went well too! Aside from nearly getting run over on International Drive but what's life without some danger. It's always the best when you can talk to people face to face. It makes all the late nights worth it! You can read a bit and see some pics here on my Tumblr. I'm still playing catchup on photos of new stuff, so keep an eye out here and I'll also be posting Etsy links when applicable.

My next event as of now is C2E2 April 13-15 in Chicago, which is now official! I'm in Booth 657, and I'll be working up a special C2E2 exclusive.

I made a business contact at Megacon that, if it pans out, is a pretty big deal. But I'm keeping it completely secret until it either goes somewhere or doesn't. Please keep your fingers crossed for me though!

I keep finding myself here when looking at plushies and such, so I thought I'd finally stop a moment and leave a comment. Really great work on them, and such original designs! I bet I'll be back here again soon enough :D
