No.5!!! I focus primarily twice a week on the NEW people to Etsy, when it comes to getting word out about emerging talents and businesses in the handmade community. Lately however I have begun to receive hoards of friendly gestures coming not just from the new sellers on Etsy but also the established ones too. I love giving the new sellers opportunities to find a place to get their name out there as in the ever growing Etsy world we all know that's getting harder, but people who have been around for a long time are picking up my work and doing really nice things to give me a shout out too. So for them (newbies too) Wednesdays are days where I want to share my gratitude and to also give them a shout out too, so their kind gestures are returned in the same way :)
TREASURIES Just the one this week! Infact according to Craftopolis I was an alternate in this treasury and not sure if my print ever got moved to the main as I only checked the once, so I don't even know which was picked! But! It was a POE treasury which I think is now the second one that I have been thought of in which always jumps up my spirits, as it's nice to be thought of as being good enough for the thing you work so hard on the most! So a bbbbbbbiiiiiiiiiig thanks to RaysOfGrace on Etsy for making such a nice Photographers on Etsy treasury and considering myself to be part of it! On the left is a beautiful print from her store which is clickable! It'll take you straight to her listing and from there I'd urge you to check out more of her photography. Beautiful stuff I'm telling you :) Thanks again!
KINDNESS This is one that has moved me the most so far as it's something I've never experienced since ever starting these features almost a year ago now, nor ever expect someone to do for me being as I like to do these features for new sellers for the joy of being able to help people and enjoy looking at art which is a hobby of mine. You may remember the name Miscii on Etsy from last weeks Monday Magic feature? I'm certain you'll remember the lovely Green Acrylic Heart I featured in the very bottom right hand corner of the feature :) Well after making a treasury for the 12 sellers over the weekend, Miscii got in touch with me with a beautiful act of kindness in gratitude for me considering her work for both the blog and treasury features. And that was to offer me an acrylic heart from her store. After a few messages she had me agreeing with her that I should have one lol! I wasn't trying to be awkward but I guess I just felt like she should earn something for one instead of giving one away for something I happily do regularly becuase I like to, and I am truely grateful to her for wanting to do something like that for me, so I'll be looking forward to that and shall post a picture promptly to show it off when it arrives! I told her in further gratitude, I would mention her gesture today for my gratitude post, and also included another clickable image of a piece from her store :) A sterling silver Invader! Very cool! And please please PLEASE check out her store at her other cool jewelry!
So That's it I think for this week. I hope I havent left anyone out... if I have I'll pop you into next weeks feature :)
