Some Special Thank You's

I have often mentioned one or more of my team mates of the EuropeanStreetTeam. This post will be mostly about them, and 4 will have an extra thank you :)
For people who don't have virtual friends you will find it hard to believe that these girls really became my friends during the past two years that we are members of the team. It might sound strange but we talk about alot of things, and that doesn't mean only talking about Etsy and selling but also of personal stuff we share. Most of them I have never met in real life, except a few, but distance and circumstances doesn't seem to matter with friendship, friendship can have alot of ways.

We have opened a new shop on Etsy (yes, again) to put our bags and belts in. The girls have been amazingly supportive. They encouraged me to jump for the pictures as they liked them so much and hearted our shop even without any items in it! Birribe made me blush with this sweet treasury, 'Come Jump with Estella', thank you once again, Britta, you made me jump out with joy :D

Alot of people on Etsy know the famous ArtMind aka Mitsy. She is one of those persons who use all her energy in positive things and brings alot of smiles on peoples faces. She has been the organizer of our secret Santa's and secret Bunnies, which takes hours of her time.
These past week's she was busy with organizing a farewell present suitcase for our team mate Kerrin, who will be moving back to New Zealand in october (read all about it here). To thank her for all the work she has been doing I added a present for her too along with the present for Kerrin. She had to punish me for beeing sneaky and 10 days after I had sent the package I got a package of her! Ahhh Mitsy she couldn't just leave it alone :D Of course I was super happy with my punishment, here they are (two famous happy girls, two ceramic gecko's which I looove, a set of feeling cards and a sweet note):

Mitsy will be making more gecko's for me in different sizes for my Gecko collection, which I will show you when hers arrive, I'm a happy girl, thank you Mitsy!

Now back to the other team girls, who are all pretty amazing with their support, critiques and chats...

Kreativlink aka Renate, deserves an extra thank you for beeing soooo helpful with an only German speaking lady on Dawanda, she has been such a patient angel, thank you!

And Nathalie of DinaFragola, saved us with beeing able to communicate with an only French speaking lady on Dawanda, thank you Nathalie!

You can easily find the shops of the EuropeanStreetTeam by searching for europeanstreetteam on Etsy!
These where only a few examples of these wonderful girls, thank you all!!


  1. what a gorgeous post estella. I have to 100% agree with you about our team .. the girls are so supportive and we are very fortunate to have this team. I myself have made many close friendships virtually and also now after having met many of the team members have been able to cement these friendships. I often wonder how on earth we can ever thank these friends and where we'd be without them?!

    I absolutely adore my package from you .. it's something i will treasure for always. thank you so much :)

    hugs and kisses, Kerrin xox
