We had some errands to run, so it's questionable if I'll finish the sticks that I thought earlier would be finished today.
So here's the deal as it relates to the "Surprise Custom" game. I'm having a tough time (and it's getting harder every day), trying to connect the dots between your blog name, forum name and etsy name. Some of them are self apparent, with the same name on all 3. By in large however that's not the case.
So, I need to build a database ... in all of my spare time, with the 3 aliases along with your real name. I assure you all of the information will be confidential. I would also like to get your country name so I can be cognizant of your time zone.
Given the number of individuals involved, I've made the decision that if you're not on the list, you won't be eligible for the "Surprise Custom" game. I would ask that you send Erin an email through ETSY and give her your name and 3 aliases along with your country. She is simply going to write the information down and give it to me in order to manage the database (fortunately, I'm pretty good at building databases from my previous banking life).
So if you would like to participate in this game going forward, please send Erin the information. Yes, I know our inbox is going to be active, fortunately we only have to go through this exercise once. Many of you we know well, and even if that's the case, I would ask that you send the email anyway, so you don't inadvertently get overlooked. Please use the conversation topic "ADDENDUM", that way I know which emails that I don't need to look at.
Now, I'm really going back to work.
