Five years ago today, I posted my first apron for sale on Etsy! That can't be right, can it? Let me check again...
Yep. 2010. Five years! I was shocked that I lasted three months, so this seems like a pretty monumental milestone. This little business literally changed my life and it wouldn't be possible without the support and encouragement from all of you, my customers, blog readers, crafty community, friends and family. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!
For the last couple weeks, I've been mulling over how to best celebrate and was coming up with nothing. Honestly, I was on the verge of letting the day pass by unannounced. But then the most perfect thing just happened. I had to cut some extra length off a new product I'm working on (hint hint) and the leftover piece divided perfectly into five. Kismet.
So... to thank you all for five fabulous years of business, I'm giving away five special anniversary-edition trivets!
I had some serious fun with this, quilting each one with a unique pattern. And at 8x10", they 're the perfect size for whatever you need them to be. Big coaster, small placemat, pot holder, whatever you like. I think I might have to make another one for myself, actually.
