In the midst of preparing for Renegade Austin and wrapping up the school year at my day job, I realized this week that my Leaves of Glass shop is hurtling towards its 2,000th sale. Looking back on the last three years, I can’t believe how much has changed, and the ways my life has been enriched by the opportunities I’ve had and the people I’ve met. I was chatting a couple of days ago with the customer who was my 1,000th sale, back in July of 2008 – it feels like that just happened. I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to do something I love this much. That I’m also able to share it with amazing customers and gifted fellow designers is icing on the cake.
To celebrate this milestone, I dreamed up a surprise package for the customer who will be my 2,000th sale. Lucky number 2000 will get to choose two pairs of earrings from my Leaves of Glass shop, and will also receive a surprise bonus – and my gratitude for sharing this mile marker with me!
Heartfelt thanks to my delightful customers – so many of you have become dear friends, as well. I would never be able to keep doing this without you, and you make it so much fun.
With grit, sparkle and affection, Kateri
