I had two Etsy front pagers yesterday! It's always wonderful to make it to the front page. I get many visitors to my shop and lots of feedback. Thanks Lilybrush and KatieBlairDesigns for selecting my work and creating such beautiful treasuries. They both have lovely shops on Etsy that you should check out. KatieBlairDesigns creates handmade original stationery designs. She's got beautiful notecards for the holidays and gorgeous flowers designs for sale. Lilybrush creates beautiful handmade designer clothing. Her garments have a retro chic look and are so unique. Happy shopping!
