well bugger me!



looks who's featured seller...i don't know how the hell i managed to keep this a secret, i've known a month and have been printing like crazy to get my stocks up. as well as a few sleepless nights worrying that nobody will buy anything and i'll be the most disastrous featured seller in it's history. but, oh well, tough shit if i am :) go and visit the etsy home page and read my interview...(oh and my favourite songs/movies/books/websites have probably changed since i wrote it, back when i was a youngster of 33. fickle is my middle name*)
and guess what i was doing 5 minutes before the feature went live? why, sweeping the kitchen floor of course, just like a good little housewife. although i drew the line and actually getting out the mop and bucket. just like a very bad little housewife.

*it isn't really, it's janine.

Congrats! I think they made a great choice as your products are awesome (your magnets are on my fridge as we speak!). I too spent my morning doing housework but now the afternoon is mine to craft. I'm off to read the article.

I just read your interview - we like lots of the same things, including BIG and Radio 1. Did you see Friday night with Jonathan Ross last week - Tom Hanks did the bit from the end of BIG, you know the 'shimmy shimmy cocoa pop...' bit - i love him. really.
