Ok, it's a record: two posts in one day.
Wanted to share this cool feature of etsy.com: the Treasury.
Anyone (who is quick with the fingers) can get a Treasury and be a curator of their own collection. There are 222 or so at once. Etsy has made it easy sellers to find themselves listed in a Treasury by adding a yellow star at the Treasury listing where the seller's item is featured (one of 12). If there's a gray star, that means you're on the reserve list (one of three spots).
I randomly look to see if I'm featured anywhere. Today I found two!
This one is "Ode to the Farm" -- my item is hair clippies with cows:
The next one is funny... called "Orange you glad..." and my hair clippies are in the top row:
I didn't get a picture of the 4th grader at the bus stop. As predicted, I had a tired and s-t-a-r-v-i-n-g child on my hands. Plus, the teenager's bus was a bit messed up so she was 65 minutes late. Our once decent and now HORRIBLE public transit system launched a complete route overhaul yesterday. Her first bus (3:10 pm) never showed up; her second bus (3:50 pm) was 15 minutes late. Nothing like a long day at school followed by an hour wait for the bus. Harumph.
