This is pretty much a commercial interruption. If you're feeling even the slightest bit spammed, please Please PLEASE feel absolutely free to skip it.

But, if you're not, you can head over to Jessie Mac Creations, where much to my surprise, I find that my Etsy shop is the "Wow Factor Wednesday" feature over there.

How fun is that?

(Well, let's be honest, it's not all that fun for you. For me though? Super Super fun.)

For those of you who have read this far, I thank you for indulging me. Please feel free to go about the rest of your day as usual now, with my sincere gratitude.

"hot sweaty dudes with their shirts off"

I'm in the middle of another trade event over at Etsy. My inventory has been depleted considerably, particularly the inventory that's selling right now (i.e.--not hats or sweaters).

So, I'm heading to the couch to crochet for two hours and ten minutes.

New Moon came via Netflix today.

(The title of this post comes to you courtesy of Eric, who has not yet seen the film.)

(I'm not a rabid fan of the Twilight Series, but I'm definitely not above watching it from time to time.)

(Of course, I'll take Matt Damon or Ben Affleck over Taylor L. and Cedric Diggory (Robert? Is his acting name Robert?) any day.)

That's enough random for the moment.

Off to the couch!

Dishcloths, Dishcloths, Dishcloths

So, this isn't really par for the course for a Sunday post, but I've had an awesome Etsy weekend, and I'm going to exult a little bit.

First, I've decided that I want to be better about acknowledging the birthdays of my friends & family again. To that end, Friday and Saturday I sent messages to several Etsy card shops that I knew were open to trading, and asked them if they wanted to trade with me. Four shop owners replied in the affirmative, and so within the next week or so, I should have a fun little collection of handmade birthday cards to begin my quest. Wa-hoo!

Second, I finished up some more dishcloth sets and listed them in my shop in Friday evening. They had not been listed for more than twelve hours when I got an actual cash sale (not a trade mind you, but a sale for eighteen dollars of cold hard paypal cash) for two sets, from a brand new customer! How fun!

Third, yesterday I received notice that one of my dishcloth sets was featured in an curated collection (a/k/a Etsy Treasury). Today I got notice that yet another set was featured in another curated collection. Yippee! If you want to see those collections, you can click on this link and this link. The collections both expire Tuesday morning though, so if you're reading this after then, the links won't go anywhere.

And then fourth, and perhaps the most exciting of all, I just received word that this woman named Ruby hast featured my brand new bright and colorful quirky over-the-top rastafarian fiesta dishcloths on her blog. What a fun surprise!

Yup, things are good in salutations land today. Here's hoping your weekend was fabulous as well.

Green, Green, Green

In honor of the beginning of March, and St. Patrick's Day, and the hope of imminent spring . . .

I changed our bathroom decor.

Welcome to my favorite month of the year.
(Happy (early) Birthday, Dad)

(only a few shopping days left until Charlotta-Day 2010)

Other people of note with March Birthdays:
President Spencer W. Kimball
My Mom
My Cousin Jeff Scott

And, I think that's definitely enough randomness and font size changes and alignment changes for one day.
