One of my secret selfish goals with my art is to get one of my items put on the front page of Etsy. This is a big deal, the front page is the first thing people see when you visit the Etsy site, and it is always featuring such beautiful work in the most inspirational, whimsical, and lovely collections. It would be a great way to get more traffic over to my little shop of art. But most of all... It would be such a personal triumph to have my artwork picked for one of those 12 coveted little boxes.
If you arent an Etsy aficionado, to fill you in, the Front Page collection is chosen from treasuries that people put together. Treasuries are a grouping of items that people make from the millions of listings on Etsy. They often have themes and are so much fun to make and be picked for. So anytime one of my listings gets chosen for someone's treasury, it is both an honor and a blessing. (and gets me one more chance to be picked for the "Illustrious Etsy Front Page.") ;)
Well I am honored and blessed today by Graysparrow, who chose one of my sweet little newspaper print birds for her treasury. This collection features some incredible artists using Newspaper as inspiration. I love it!! Thank You Graysparrow!!
