they are delicious!)

Creature Feature

In case you didn't know, my otters were featured in a gift guide
on the Etsy Blogs!  Which led to 15 orders in the last 2 days, more than I've ever had
in such a short period of time.  I am extremely proud of this, as you can probably imagine.
It's definitely great motivation to keep making new things. (a boost that I very much needed)

I feel like good things have been happening in the past few days, in addition to
the feature, my wedding dress came in, we celebrated the bf's birthday last weekend,
and I received my state tax refund today.  2012 is so exciting already!
