I also have received quite a bit of support from my cousin, Pam who writes a great blog of parenting and life, her blog is It's Time for More Coffee. She doesn't sell anything, but she does have contests and has given me some advice. Thanks, Pam. And then, there is someone I don't even know who has a blog called Ernestine Edna and her Really Big Ideas. She follows me and I also read her blog. She also sells on Etsy and has some really cool knitted items. Until I started my little project, I really did not realize how interesting blogging actually is. There are some fantastic writers and really clever people hanging out on the internet.
But back to getting noticed on Etsy. Since I started posting pillows, every so often, someone has made one of my pillows a favorite, or my shop a favorite, or become an admirer. This always makes my day!!! Thank you to those folks. I never realized you could do this and it is a really great tool. I have one favorite right now -- a pair of metal roller skates with red leather straps. I had a pair when I was a kid and just really like to look at the picture. But, I think this is a great tool. See something you like, mark it as a favorite and come back to it when it is time to shop for a gift or for yourself. But this weekend, I discovered something really cool. It is called a treasury. People create a treasury of items of similar interest that they like. This weekend, I got a message that I had been added to an Etsy Treasury called "It's all in the Stripes." I was so excited! I don't know this person at all! I did message her back with a big thank to the kind stranger for including my Christmas pillow in her treasury!
