The Power of the Etsy Front Page

It was a glorious day today, the first proper day of spring, sunny and mild and generally rather cheering. I took full advantage of the weather and spent the day tinkering with plants, having a bit of a spring clean and flinging all the windows open so I could do some pungent DIY: mucking about with primer and varnish and making a terrible mess in the process :)

I did however neglect to take my 365 photo, so it shall have to wait for tomorrow. In the meantime, here's a screenshot from yesterday of one of my moustache disguises on the Etsy front page...
... for anyone who has ever wondered about the "front page effect": they were viewed about 600 times while they were up there! The exposure also led to 19 people marking them a favourite (and 34 marking my shop as a favourite) and caused a flurry of convos and a couple of sales. Many thanks are due to missbeahaven for curating such a stylish treasury and for being kind enough to add my item, and to gemmafactrix for being such a great model!

wow, that is an amazing result from being on the front page. very impressed with your work and how successful you have been. Clearly down to hard work. Just starting out and wondering when my first sale would come. Found you through reading guerilla embroidery's site. She was right you are an inspriation.
