bobby boo boo

Did you know you can stab yourself with a bobby pin?

About a week and a half ago, I was making a batch of button bobbies for Mackey Blue when I managed to stab myself while pushing the button shank over the pin. It was a tight squeeze and the bobby went right into my finger causing blood to spurt. It is still sore. I think it's just bruised but, oh boy watch out for those innocent bobby pins.
Speaking of Mackey Blue, I wanted to let you know that sometimes things disappear off my Etsy shop to the store but, if someone is interested in an item that disappears they can email me and I can get it for them if it's still there or possibly make another. I am contemplating removing more off Etsy and moving it into the shop because I've only sold 4 items on Etsy and I am selling much better at the store. Thoughts? I think it makes sense to move it to the store. Do sales go crazy before the holidays over on Etsy? Any tips for improved sales?
Also, Mackey Blue was in the blog news recently and they did a little blurb on me too.

Hope everyone enjoys their weekends.

Yikes. Thanks for the warning; I never thought that bobbypins could be so dangerous.

Congratulations on getting mentioned in the blog news about Mackey Blue. From what I've noticed on Etsy it seems like a lot of people start shops their but then wind up going elsewhere to sell their stuff. You could always think of starting another blog with just the stuff that you're selling, not need to worry about a percentage of sales going to etsy and you can even mention your new URL on the etsy site to redirect people. It's great to hear your doing well with sales at the store
