Etsy's front page had one of my cuffs on it today! I missed seeing it for myself, but my beadweaving buddy Carol Dean (SandFibers) was nice enough to grab a screenshot for me. There's my Hide in Plain Sight cuff in the second row. Woo hoo!!!

The Etsyian who assembled that gorgeous collection of red, yellow, and blue was lusitania, and she's from Madrid! Isn't it neat that something like Etsy can bring people together from different countries like this? Off I went to check out her Etsy shop, and it became obvious pretty quickly that she likes bright colors. Just looking at her avatar is fun!

And while I was looking at her lusitania shop, in which she sells some wonderful handmade supplies, I discovered that she also has a shop called Entropia where she has finished jewelry pieces. There I found this gorgeous Blue Thread Choker. I've seen these before, and I just love them!

I have some other people to thank here for including my work in their treasuries. It's so nice to find that gold star sitting next to a treasury, and I've been quite lucky lately. I've been trying [hard!] to improve my photographs so I have more treasury-worthy shots, and it seems to be paying off. One of these days I'm going to have to invest in a light box, I think.

I do want to send a HUGE thank you to these people for featuring my work. I truly appreciate it, and I hope you'll visit their Etsy shops!!

THANK YOU to fellow Etsy BeadWeaver beaderjojo for including my Just a Scribble cuff in her Beaded Bliss treasury. With all the beadweaving I've done, I've never tried anything like this Blue Crystal Fantasy Ring. Isn't this gorgeous?!

THANK YOU to Andrea, of poshjewelry, for including my Inspired bracelet in her etsyBead gets an A in geometry treasury. Andrea just listed this beautiful Multicolor Crystal Cube bracelet in her shop a few days ago, at a great price! In fact, I just noticed that she's also having a sale on earrings...

THANK YOU to Jen, of BindingTwine, for including my Swedish Checkerboard cuff in her treasury. I have to admit that I was a bit nervous on clicking on her treasury when I first saw the gold star because it was called Flagged! Ack! No worries, though. It was just a fun, flag-filled treasury. Whew. Jen is a painter of pooches... and cats... and birds... and mermaids... and all sorts of things! Just look at this little guy!!! Awwww.

THANK YOU to buttfreckle. Seriously. Buttfreckle. What a hoot. She included my Soul-Searching Sloth mini notecards in a treasury that was purportedly named after her favorite quote: I'll never be your pizza burnin'. I'm not sure what that quote means, but as I was checking out her shop and her profile I found that she has absolutely impeccable taste. In cheese puffs. Yep, I've found someone else who likes STALE cheese puffs. How could you go wrong shopping for a little plush made by someone whose shop is called buttfreckle AND who likes stale cheese puffs!? And these little guys are GREAT!!!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to noahsarkcollection for including my button rings in not one, not two, but THREE treasuries! She even went to the trouble to recreate one that made it to the front page for a few seconds (before an Etsy gremlin caused a problem and made it go poof). I missed the FP appearance, but you can see the most recent treasury, Christmas is coming, so start early. Her shop is filled to the brim with animals of every kind. "WHO" (hee hee) couldn't love this ceramic owl bead?

Okay... I'm not finished thanking people, but I'm soooo sleepy! The rest will have to wait till tomorrow. Er. Today. It's past midnight. I think I've turned into a pumpkin.
