I'm going to tell you a little story about a stressed out crafter....
It was Friday and I was sitting on my mothers couch in the Bay Area when I opened up a conversation on Etsy from Daniellexo, from admin. She said Etsy was to be featured on the Martha Stewart Show and they were interested in a set of my accordion books in consideration for the episode. Oh holy goodness Yay, right?
It was total elation until I read they wanted the books Monday, three days from that very moment, where I was sitting, out of town, on my moms couch. The one and only best thing that could ever happen to a crafter and I was NOT home to send the items off. If there was ever a time to PANIC that was the very moment. I am, however, incredibly lucky because my good friend & shop assistant extraordinaire Lea kindly agreed (after a smidge of begging and pleading) to go to my home, pack up the items and ship them off, overnight express. I immediately called the producer (yeah, that's a number I'll be keeping) to let her know I was having items sent and that she could reach me by phone or telegram or flying mule if needed. After a few days of nail biting it was confirmed that the items arrived in perfect condition and just now confirmed that although they won't be mentioned by name they will be ON THE TABLE during the episode, on Martha Stewart's table, on her show, while she talks to Etsy president Rob Kalin, on the Martha Stewart show. Martha. Stewart.
Ps it airs friday the 29th. Martha Stewart Show. (ahem) If I can get a download of the segment I'll show it off for ya, here.
