did you hear me screaming?

First of all, if I spoke to you around 3:00 this afternoon, let me apologize for my volume.

If not, let me show you why I was so excited:

I've never been a great success on Etsy. (I've compared it to trying to fit in with the "popular kids" at school, which I did not.) I've only been in a handful of treasuries, and have never been on the front page or anything of that nature. But today - oh, today - my cuff for the October Breast Cancer Awareness challenge on the Etsy SHEteam made it into a Storque article!

Of course, I'd be thrilled with any such exposure on Etsy, and the traffic to my shop that comes with it. But to be included in a breast cancer awareness article, after Mama's battle with cancer, is particularly sweet.

I go to sleep happy, if still a bit bewildered, tonight. The popular kids let me sit at their lunch table, for one day at least. ;)

The best always shows up after reviewing the rest.
Those kids need to think about how they can sit at your lunch table.

Sometimes I'd love to just hug you to pieces. (This is one such time.)
