Making Tails Wag One Bead At A Time!

We're here today because the current EtsyBloggers blog carnival is for Mommy to post about her recent accomplishments. Well, our mommy doesn't like tooting her own horn so we're going to tell you some of her accomplishments on her behalf.

As many of you know, our mommy makes and sells beaded jewelry on Etsy in her BeadedTail shop. Well, last month a purchase by Delilah from The Monkeys was her 125th sale! We think this is a great accomplishment! She gets just as excited with each sale as she did with the first sale way back in March 2008. Thanks Delilah for helping her hit this milestone!
Since Mommy started making and selling jewelry on Etsy, she's contributed $1,200 from her BeadedTail sales to animal and human charities. Contributing to charity was the reason she opened her shop so we're thankful to her customers for helping her help charities!
In addition to being a member of the EtsyBloggers, she's also a member of the Etsy Angels which is another wonderful team that has fundraisers every other month in which they donate a portion of their sales to team member's chosen charity. Well, last month the charity was one that Mommy chose - Chintimini Wildlife Rehab Center. At the end of the month, the Etsy Angels had 171 sales and raised $311.10 for Chintimini! We are all very thankful for each Angel who participated!

We are glad to have this chance to toot Mommy's horn since normally the only tootin' around our house is done by Sadie!
Hope you have a great Thursday!
