Amy Butler Picked Me?!

I haven't been this surprised for quite a while.

I checked "the Storque" (Etsy's blog) yesterday afternoon. I TRY to read every article to stay on top of things. This time I recognized the face of the current guess curator. It was the designer Amy Butler, probably most well know for her fabrics featuring bold florals and graphic leaves.

I stopped dead in my tracks after two scrolls down as there (much larger than life) was my Yellow Blossom ring. Amy had curated a list and chosen one of my rings. What an absolute thrill to have a piece of my work picked by anyone (lets first just say that - I love when something I've made gets chosen for treasuries, blogs...or a gift for a best friend)! But quickly the implications of being picked by someone well known in the design industry starting swirling about in my head.
