Doing a little happy dance!




Well - I have had a good Etsy weekend for a couple of reasons. First of all, an Etsy seller by the name of Noah's Ark Collection picked my "Hip To Be Square" earrings for a treasury that they created. (By the way - she has some wonderful animal items in her shop - mainly beads and charms - I have spotted a couple of beads there that may have to find their way into future pieces that I make.) I am terribly excited about this as this is only the second treasury that I have been featured in. To make things even more exciting, while I was at work yesterday, this treasury actually made it to the front page of Etsy. This is hugely exciting for me - I have never made it to the front page of Etsy, so I am really happy about this. But as my luck would have it - I was at work when this happened (of course) and I guess that the treasury had *just* made it to the front page of Etsy when their system crashed - so although it should have been there for a little while, it was only there about 5 minutes (bummer).

So, I decided to share my news with my online friends. And one of them liked my earrings so much that she bought them (thanks Cyn)!! And now Noah's Ark Collection was kind enough to choose another pair of earrings from my shop to feature.

I am showing you pictures of both treasuries - the original one that made it to the front page - and the second with the "new" earrings.

All in all - this has been a really great Etsy weekend for me! Do I dare hope that the second pair of earrings may sell as well???

If it's any consolation, I was at home and missed the front page appearance too!

Congrats on your first appearance, though, even if it wound up being shorter than it should have been. It's still exciting. :-)
