i must confess i am nervous first and foremost, then thrilled and honored (!!!!!) to have been selected as a featured seller for etsy's front page starting today at 1:00 p.m. est time-- and up for the next three days.
for those of you who don't know about etsy-- well!--- it's an amazing global marketplace comprised of small shops filled with hand made goods. each shop is a gem unto itself and reflects the personality and passion of the individual who makes the items. you can find everything possible under the sun on etsy--- clothing, accessories, jewelry, bath and body, vintage, sculpture, ceramics, furniture, lighting, home decor, paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, craft supplies, children's toys and clothing, pet supplies, ---really everything you can imagine--i'm sure i've left out many things... the most amazing thing is that no matter the level of experience--from sophisticated to naive-- the work is made with heart. people on etsy love what they are doing-- and you can feel it as you weave your way in and around the shops-- it's a wonderfully positive experience!!
so take some time to go and explore etsy---you will thank me. here is the link--- etsy.com --- you will never run out of ideas for gifts or ways to entertain yourself when you have free time to explore the shops. i may sound a bit like an etsy stepford wife, but i really do love this fascinating world!!
not only does etsy help to provide everyone with the opportunity to grow a small business---it also provides a meeting ground for a global community of amazing scope. it is my favorite thing about etsy--the people!!! i have met some of the most lovely, wonderfully talented, hard working, diverse, fun, supportive, marvelous, energetic, inspiring people from all around the globe-- i cherish the friends that i've made--!
SO I THANK YOU ETSY--- AND ALL OF YOU WONDERFUL ETSY ADMIN--- AND ALL OF YOU ETSY SELLERS--- AND ALL OF YOU ETSY FRIENDS !!! XOXOXOXOXO!!!
