{THANK YOU}LinkOne last thank you to all of the artists and sellers who were part of Shop Live last night. I've received so many wonderful comments and I know it wouldn't have been such a success without your participation! Thank you for sponsoring my Shop Live event and twittering and/or posting about it on your own blogs.

Participants, you guys were the nicest ever! Thanks for coming and I hope most of you found some sweet deals! I know I definitely did my share of shopping yesterday - can't wait until they all arrive! Twitter/online buddies - I'm so sorry if I missed some of you, it was very difficult to see the left panel while I was describing the products. I would've loved to give everyone a shout-out!

Thank you Jena, Julie, Kathryn, Amy, Holly, Ez, Melis (and I'm sure there are more people to thank) for posting and twittering about the event yesterday. Thanks for helping me get the word out ladies you guys are the best support system a girl could ask for!! ETSY - Danielle and Alison, thank you SO much for asking me to be a part of such a dynamic feature. I had so much fun and would do it again in a heart beat!! Virtual labs are the coolest things, I'm such a fan of that application - it's pure genius, please pass on some love to the app developers, they rock!!
