Big thanks to Barbara at southernladysvintage for letting me know that my coconut blues napkin cuffs were on the front page today! At 6 something pm eastern time, this gorgeous treasury (curated by the talented monarchdancer) was chosen by Etsy admin to grace the front page of their website.

The feeling of seeing something you made looking back at you from this special spot is indescribable. For me it is like a combination of standing on the top of Mt. Everest and being handed a winning lottery ticket.

I stare and stare, thinking "Wow, that's me right there! Right there! I MADE that!" Then *poof* the front page changes, and your 30 minutes of fame is over. But thankfully that warm, fuzzy feeling stays and stays. And if it happened once, it can happen again! Woot!

Hahaha.. cute post. But exactly how I felt when my item was featured too. You could have done a screenshot of it the next time round. And I'm sure there'll be lots of 'NEXT TIME'.

Keep up the good work ;)
