My family, and all the things they've taught me and protected me, and loved me. I love them and I love having a big (drama-filled) family. I'm sad I won't spend Thanksgiving with all of them, but I think one year doing it on our own will be okay!
My friends. Especially the ones I've made in the nail community, who have become such close, best friends for me. It's funny how something as simple as nail polish can open a world of similar interests, jokes, dislikes, and more. To think that I connected with someone enough to fly 1200 miles to Colorado to spend 4 days hanging out with her, is crazy! But it's awesome.
My Happy Hands Nail Polish customers, and everything they give me. You know I hit 1000 Etsy sales last week?! It's crazy to think that people have wanted over ONE THOUSAND bottles of polish that I MADE! I've lived my life jumping from hobby to hobby, never quite finding something I loved until now. It was a perfect storm of loving to paint my nails, and a love of glitter, and a need for a creative outlet.. and also to connect with people. I've gotten some funny, cute, sweet messages from you guys and made some awesome friends thanks to Happy Hands. And everytime I see my polishes on my favorite bloggers' nails, I have such a hand-flailing fan-girl moment! This is a crazy ride and I plan to be in it as long as you'll buy my polishes. To know that I am making something that someone else will *love* makes me so thankful that I took this risk.
