Is it time to party?

1500 likers on facebook. That's a milestone, right? With all of the new facebook changes, failing to show up in news feeds and now having to promote posts, I'm really not sure any more. I want it to be a milestone because  I've kind of been looking forward to it for a while, but is it? Should I be concentrating more on how many likes individual posts get or should I work out when I have sold my 500th doll or something? There is probably some complex mathematical formula I could use to figure it all out, but unfortunately my job titles have included "lawyer", "mother", "dollmaker" and even "bakery assistant", but not "mathematician", so I'm stuck with those easily quantifiable figures to use as my guide.

I'm generally not a "liker-counter", but 1500 seemed like an important one to me, so lately I have been keeping my eye on that magic number which seems to go up and down like the tides. I hit the 1500 mark sometime during the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day, which also coincided with the Tout Mon Amour Auction and giveaway and while it went up and down a few times, it's currently at 1540, so I am somewhat confident that it will stay above 1500, at least for long enough to celebrate!

Now, along with the 1500 likers, there are a couple of special dates coming up this month, so I thought instead of just one day, or even one week, I would have a little 1500 liker celebration extravaganza (try saying that 3 times fast!). There'll be specials, prizes and games throughout the extravaganza and due to the whole facebook not allowing that kind of thing, most of them will be conducted right here, so make sure you stay tuned!

To start with, my hand-made store is in sale mode. 1500 likers = 15% off storewide. The sale commences at 10am today (June 4) and ends at midnight on June 19. Why June 19 I hear you say? Well, because that's one of the "special days" - my birthday! The 15% off counts on all items currently in store and anything I add between now and the end of the sale will go on sale as well, so favourite the shop, subscribe to the blog, like me on facebook, or tie a piece of string around your finger to remind you to keep checking!

In addition to the sale, I'll be having a giveaway which I will let you know more about this Saturday, June 9, which also happens to be my gorgeous little monkey, Maia's 3rd birthday, another "special day". Isn't she cute?

And... a games night with prizes - date to be advised! So.... who's in? :)
