this awesome treasury i'm featured in. i've only been featured in two treasuries, but it's such a huge compliment, i think. of all the millions of amazing things on etsy, somebody found something i'm selling and thought highly enough of it to put it in a treasury with 15 other equally amazing things. i still haven't been featured on etsy's front page, but i've kind of given up on that- it feels a lot like a popularity contest. i've also noticed that some things get featured a LOT, like two or three times a week, which doesn't seem right. give somebody else a chance, already! but i understand why that happens- pretty thing show up on the front page and people 'heart' them, and they're more likely to build treasuries out of their 'hearted' items than scour etsy pages for new things, so you end up with a lot of recycling. that's my theory, anyway. i've made two or three treasuries myself, and it is fun to email the people to let them know about it- it makes me feel a bit like a fairy godmother, or like i'm spreading a little bit of joy all around etsyland.
