Birthdays, and Scrunchies, and Turkey oh my!

The other day was the boyfriend's birthday. He doesn't really like to make a big deal about it, but I love birthdays, so it's kind of a battle of wills between us. I got him presents which made him mad that I got them for him but happy because he loved them...I got him cake which he said I shouldn't have, but ate it with relish (meaning he enjoyed it, not with pickles)...the one thing I didn't do (because I kind of got lazy) was give him a pie in the face which is apparently what you do to a clown on his next year, he better watch out.

I listed a grey beaded scrunchie last night. It's the same as the pink one only grey. I still have a finished headband to list, but last night I was too tired to measure it...I don't have a big house or anything, but the few feet to the laundry room to grab the tape measure just seemed waaaay too far.

In Turkey news?:

I must have been featured on a Turkish blog. Yesterday I was getting a ton of hits (over 100) and I couldn't figure out where they were coming from. I wasn't featured anywhere and I wasn't in a treasury. Well, this morning when I checked my google analytics, there was this blog that I could see that all the hits were coming from. I didn't understand the language, nor did I even see a picture of anything I'd made.

So then I looked at the map to see where all this activity was coming from, and lo and behold, there was like 95 hits from Turkey! Though around Thanksgiving I do profess my love of Turkey, I haven't really tried to focus any of my advertising on the country cool is that?

I then looked at content by title and discovered that it was my Lime Green Tank with Gold Accent...Wow! The web is really an amazing thing.


  1. How funny and great news! I got featured on a Turkish blog before and it brought in hundreds of views! Way to go.

  2. I realy like the way you make these lovely scunchies.

  3. The internet is amazing! It's wonderful that someone halfway around the world appreciates your work - congrats!
