Getting Noticed

I love having an Etsy shop.  because of the growing traffic on this handmade marketplace, I am able to get my work out to the universe in a way I never even considered until I found Etsy back in ought-six.  In addition to buying and selling and creating an online community, individuals can create a 'Treasury' - a group of products that fit into the theme.  I occasionally luck into creating a treasury, but the timing is tricky and I find creating them very time consuming. 

Luckily, other people love to make them - and seem to be luckier than I am catching an opening.  Yesterday I got a lovely 'convo' - Etsyspeak for a personal message - notifying me that I was in a Treasury with a number of knitted object, yarn and another (killer beautiful) roving.  Fair warning - the links don't last long!  Such is the transient nature of the Treasury. Thanks, Svetlana for including my Blue Atlantic roving!

P.S. I knit about another inch on my sweater!

Isn't it great having a shop on Etsy? I mailed a package to Finland last week. I am constantly amazed the people find my items.
I love your shop!
and Congrats on being in that beautiful treasury!!
