Front Page Treasury

So those familiar with Etsy understand the coolness of being chosen for a treasury that a fellow Etsian has made. The epitome is to have the treasury you are in, or have made, chosen to be displayed on the front page of the Etsy site. What makes it even wilder is that there is no notice by Etsy that you will be, are, or have been on the front page! I happened to trip over one of my ponytail holders on the front page of Etsy on Saturday, September 27, 2008. There it is on the bottom left corner. As you can imagine, there was much screaming, whooping and thundering of feet as I made the family haul it in and take notice. It was really cool to watch the numbers go up on the pony tail holder as people hit it to go into my shop. I MIGHT have been a little obnoxious with the constant play-by-play and updating of my numbers. The 11 year old barked at one point, "I'm trying to read HERE!" Hello, the book isn't going anywhere, your mother is only famous through one of her pieces for a few minutes! The things we put up with for our art! :)
