It's simple, really

My friend Dina was kind enough to inform me that she spotted my photograph "Love is in the air" on the Real Simple website. Holly Becker of the design blog Decor8 mentioned my shop among her top 10 Etsy stores for the month of September. Thanks Holly!

I'm just now recovering from the madness that ensued from being the Etsy Featured Seller last week. It was incredible exposure and it lead to an enormous number of sales. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it sure wasn't the tsunami of sales and emails that resulted. I received so much wonderful support and encouragement from Etsy members. I'm so happy to be part of this amazing community. Well, enough talking, back to shipping!
