Well, on Friday something kind of cool happened. Another kind Etsian decided to feature one of my items in a treasury.
Normally, I am happy and very thankful to them for using my item in a treasury despite my old, dark, photography. But with this treasury feature, I was elated! Reason being, the curator of the treasury submitted it for consideration of the team over at the HGTV.com blog site. HGTV has started to do features of Etsy treasuries on their web blog. How cool would that be if this treasury were featured on the HGTV blog with my item within it! That would mean some major click through traffic and maybe some sales. I went to the HGTV blog and clicked through their link to see all of the submissions and the treasury I was featured in was on the first page!! Oh, yes, I was stoked.

But then I was instantly panicked. My store had all the 'old' photos still up and looked way amateur. Ugh... I didn't want people to visit my store and have it not look the best. It was then that I embarked on the three day face lift.
I am so glad that I did it. I redid all the pics and tweaked my descriptions and tags. Please take a moment to visit and check out the new 'look' of my Etsy shop.

In the end, the treasury I was featured in did not get chosen for the blog feature. Maybe next time. I did get several click throughs off the treasury and a few from the HGTV site, which was exciting to me! I am still so thankful that someone chose my sunny little General Electric kitchen clock for one of the HGTV treasury submissions, and it lit a fire under my tush to get the store revamped.
