My 700 Prize!

If you've been reading this blog for long, you'll already know about the 100s prizes.  Every time I hit another 100 mark in my Etsy, my sweet family buys me a prize.  It really makes me feel so special and loved.  On Saturday, the Skunkboy Creatures Etsy shop hit 700!  Woo hoo!  Wanna see my prize?!

I know this totally makes me a girl, but it has sparkly keys! And it's pearloid! Swoon.
It's my favorite one ever!  Thanks, family.  :)

Thanks to all of you, too, for supporting me!  I can't believe it's 700 already. <3
xoxo Katie

You can see some of my other accordions here and here.

  4. I do play. :) I currently play a lady size, so this one will take a little adjusting to. It isn't my first full size, so it won't be too tough. :))

  6. So exciting! I just started learning the accordion in September, and I looove it. I also have a full size, and it can get heavy, but I wouldn't have it any other way. It's teal!

    A picture, if you're interested:

  17. Soo I definitely met you two years ago (and this year also) when you went to Strange Folk (I was a vendor there, Bunnies and Bows by Amy Rose), and freaked out because you and your precious daughter had Blythe dolls! And I feel so darn SILLY because I have heard of Skunkboy Creatures for forever and never actually checked out your blog until today - and I realized it was YOU! And now I am a wee bit star struck..even though it is several years later.

    So I just wanted to say how amazing your creatures are and how I have wanted one for ages and Lady the Owl may or may not be on my Christmas list..

    and I wish I was cool enough to play the accordion.

    the end! : )
