Last Friday December 3rd, we celebrated Makaboo's first birthday - one year (to the day!) earlier, we flipped the switch on Since that time:

- We've shipped to every state in the US

- We've gotten orders from celebrities like Danica McKellar and Ever Carradine

- The UPS man has gone from carrying our orders out under one arm to bringing a hand cart - and sometimes he needs to make two trips

- We've sent more than 1,500 cuddly Angel Dear critters to homes across the country - that's at least 4 a day

- We've grown from 2 part-time employees to 3 full-time employees

It's kind of amazing that it's been a year. On the one-hand, it feels more like a decade. On the other, I can't believe how much we've accomplished in just 365 days. We have a lot to be proud of!

We had a little soiree to celebrate the occasion.

We forgot to snap a photo of the Makaboo team at the party we had to celebrate, but here are some other shots.

It's a bar where you can decorate your own cookies! Get it?
