A little Etsy excitment!

Hello Friends!


Just a bit of excitement that I wanted to share with you today!




( Forgive me as I am about to "toot my own horn".I'm not usually comfortable in that position but this made me smile and feel pretty darn good!)


A few weeks ago, I was asked to join a team on Etsy called Etsy Lush. They stand for promoting the BEST stuff on etsy. I was happy to be asked so I accepted the invite.....and that was it.


Frankly, I didn't know what to do after that. So this morning I decided to nose around and realized you have to actually submit your items to be featured. So I did .....the Welcome to Our Porch Pillow.


When I got home I went to the site to see if in fact everything went thru okay and then THIS happened.....TA-DA!!!

Not only did everything go thru okay....I LANDED SMACK DAB IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FRONT PAGE!
Now , being new to etsy lush this might be the norm there and I just don't realize it. So for now I am just going to bask in the fact that out of 208 pages....I am on #1!
Again..a bit uncomfortable with all the braggin...but the other purpose of sharing this news is to inspire YOU!
If you have an etsy shop and feel like it's been neglected OR you've been wanting to start one up.....shake a leg and get goin! Get involved, promote on your blog, join teams. You will be completely amazed at all that you will learn.
Now...if I could just land the front page of ETSY itself!
Gonna keep tryin......

Good Morning, Beth!
I am so pleased to meet you. Your blog is wonderful! I also popped in to your Etsy shop! You have a keen eye for very GOOD junk! (I tucked you into my favorites!) You are one very busy girl with all of your booths!
By the way...Congratulations on your recent marriage! The images of you day are beautiful!

I can see why you've made the first page. Your pillow is really wonderful. And your post is really timely. I'm investigating how Etsy works and what the advantage is of being in circles, etc., and your post is the push I need to get started with actually listing something. Thanks! ~Roberta
