So, last night, for those of you not on twitter, I reached 1000 cushion sales on etsy. Yep 1000. I always wanted to make it to 1000 and last night I finally did. I was helped over the line by lovely Carley who  bought number 998,  and Cindy who bought 999 and 1000. Thank you ever so much. I was determined not to go to bed last night until I did it! It was another ray of much needed sunshine and it has made me feel a lot less weighed down by the heavy blankets. So to celebrate... hold on wait, keep reading....

I also have some new ones to show you.

I have talked about being hangry before. Hunger + Anger= Hangry. You know when you get cranky when your blood sugars drop? It is one of my favourite words.....

 I thought other people might like it too...

And type- I love typography... do you love type? AND IF YOU BUY THIS ONE YOU GET A GIFT A REALLY GOOD ONE LOOK HERE!!!

and Stockholm

And Sicily

 and Finland...

And now something for you.  To celebrate my 1000th sale I am having a sale. Until the 7th November ( just before we go on holidays) you can use the coupon code  at checkout on etsy FRIENDOFMSCHOOKY  for a 10% discount! Woot!!! On everything in my shop- everything really!!!  

Now think about who a cushion might be good for as a Christmas present... your Dad with Irish  heritage.... your Mum from Italy, perhaps you met your husband on Safari in Africa- great anniversary present, maybe you had a fabulous holiday in Bali, maybe you really want to go to New York  and this will inspire you to save some money....? maybe you live in Melbourne but you grew up in Sydney? Maybe you need some rules for life and would like a little poem.... maybe what you want is out of stock?? let me know and I can reserve one for you and have it ready before I go.  I am not doing any more new places for a while now but I am sure with over 100 different maps I can find something you like.... 

And let me know what you think about the new ones....
