I've been featured!

I've been featured on an indie shopping blog!
I really like the set up of this one. Simple but lots of pictures to look at.
Come see ....
The first in the tufted series has been listed in the Etsy Shop.

The etsy finds also goes up on the the etsy blog called the Storque. People who are on etsy and don't get the email can see it too.
According to my google analytics for the shop, on Friday when it came out my views were up by 4 times the normal amount and my bounce rate was in the low 30s.
