YUP ... It's Me ETSY FEATURED SELLER 9/9/9!



Even though I submitted this picture of me looking a little like a giddy, red headed chipmunk

(not that I have a problem with red-headed chipmunks, but I swear my hair is not red and my teeth not quite so ... chicletty ... and giddy not a word usually associated with me)

and I do ramble on about turtles (no clue what I was thinking with this) and blanked on all my favorite books and music for the interview -

I AM FLIPPIN' OUT and have wanted to post about this since my post on keeping secrets weeks ago!

So.. I will let you know how this goes - maybe cork will save the world and get us all healthcare or maybe you will just be stuck with my kisser up there for 48 hours- which is about my usual expiration date for people so this should be ok ....

Your photo is adorable. Your interview is great -- I think your personality comes through wonderfully in it. My favorite part is that it led me to Uncorked's slogan...which is from my FAVORITE movie of all time. Strong work, Cat.

Good luck and congratulations!

Rachael said...

Congrats! Chickletey schmickletey - you look great! :) Just be thankful you're not a strawberry blonde like me - my eyebrows and eyelashes are blonde (i.e., invisible) so when people see me in pictures they always think, "Weird, it feels like something's missing here..." Enjoy your 48 hours of fame and you deserve it!

TesoriTrovati said...

Miss Cat! I made your shop a favorite of mine some time ago because I think your designs are fabulous, your pictures inviting and your sustainability quest amazing. And today I see that you are the featured artist...a term you should definitely wear proudly! I read your interview with great interest...when I saw the words "Inspiration is everywhere"...well...you had me at hello! My blog is called "Treasures Found::Inspiration is Everywhere" so I knew that I felt a kinship with you from the get-go. I really appreciated all the things you had to say and especially your thoughts to new sellers. I am currently grappling with the desire to be on Etsy with my lack of time....don't want to waste those spare 10 seconds! I am so excited for your success. You truly deserve it.

Thank you for sharing your inspiration today. (I am a new follower of your blog too...Olive is my MIL name and my daughter is Olivia! Love the pup!)

Enjoy the day!
Erin

Congrats to you on being the featured seller! I thought your interview was uniquely awesome--really enjoyed reading it and it inspired me! Also, I truly enjoyed reading about the turtles because the other day I found an old picture from a zoo I went to and it was of a bunch of turtles on logs! I posted it on my Facebook because I thought it was so cool! Turtles rock! Nice to hear about you on Etsy :)
