grateful friday: etsy treasury

yesterday, i took the plunge and listed a bunch of photographs on my etsy and already, one of them is in a treasury! i couldn't be more excited. my first treasury! i'm also working on a big cartel site (will link to it as soon as it's ready), just to try it out. as much as i love to buy things from etsy, i sometimes feel like it's easy to get lost there with your own shop, because there's just so much there! i haven't been very good at standing out from the crowd, but i have decided to try a bit harder (i actually hadn't really tried at all with the stones i've had listed there). if i'm going to fulfill my ambition of having a fantastic little shop when we move to a farm place, i've got to start somewhere. several people who i admire started with an online presence on etsy and then opened an actual shop where they live.

one of the things i listed yesterday was my little rainbow stacked coin fleece-backed baby/lap quilt. i think i'm even more excited about it than the photos, because it feels more personal. i've got some pillows underway that are similar to the ones i originally listed when i started my etsy shop last spring. i hope to list them this weekend (light for photos permitting).

if there are photos you're interested in that i didn't list, just send me an email, i'd be happy to make them available. but please do go check it out! just a note: i do hereby promise not to get too insufferable about this, i'm just a little excited!

happy weekend everyone!

Maybe listing a few of my own photographs on Etsy would be a good idea for me as well.

congrats!!! I'm glad it going well for you there.

I need to pay attention to my etsy shop. It's sadly neglected lately.

That is just great! With the pictures that you click, I am surprised you didn't get on earlier.

Well, if I had the money, I'd buy it! :)

Take care
