Heartwarming welcome

Today a week ago, I started listing the first feelings in my shop. It was exciting to list them and I thought I would have finished the task by today but I'm not even halfway yet. Why did I make 99 again? :)
When the first feelings sold, I was superhappy and at the same time emotional as well. The process of creating them, buying a kiln, blogging, pricing, make a description, find ways to package and display,... has been super intense. It feels like a journey coming to an end but at the same time I hope it is just the beginning.
I'm overwhelmed by the massive welcome they got by many, many people. In a week time, my shop got about 250 new hearts & I didn't even count all the hearts the individual listings got.
Amazing too how many people wrote me to let me know they love what they see.
Here's a few:
'I just have to tell you that I think your "sad" feeling is a beautiful piece of work. I have never come across something so simple that can evoke such a strong emotion. I can't stop looking at it! :)'

'I just want to say that I absolutely love your series. I want every single one of them and don't know how I've lived without them. unfortunately, I'm in america, where our economy is in the toilet, so I must admire virtually. thanks for creating such a beautiful art piece! my cousin and I are smiling.'

'I am fascinated by this series you have created. They are simply delightful. I will be ordering more (for myself!) hopefully soon after I have had a chance to decide on which ones. Your "Patience" piece is especially beautiful.'

'I just have to let you know I'm completely obsessed with your feeling sculptures. The entire line is brilliant, beautiful, and just plain wonderful.'

'I am absolutely head over heels in love with your work.'

It goes without saying that this just warms my heart and put a big smile to my face!
Thank you all for your unconditional support through all of this! :)
Oh, and I also want to thank my teammates for including my work in numerous treasuries! Some of them even made a whole treasury of them! Thank you, Kreativlink, it looks super! :)
