Another valentine and a small etsy experiment

So did you know that the top category you put your etsy listings into makes a difference? It does - I'm not sure how much of a difference so I decided to put two virtually identical sets of valentines up for sale on etsy. One in the holidays top category, one in the paper goods top category. I'm very interested to see if there's a difference in views and sales between the two. I just found about this when I was putting Christmas cards on but I didn't get enough time to really try to answer the question.

I've listed my flat valentines - these are like postcards but with envelopes. Simple but bright and fun!

Finally! I listed something new!!

Since the beginning of December I've been so busy with general life/hockey/ballet/family etc that I've neglected this little enterprise called MyGrandpasPen. So today I finally got my act together and posted two new sets of cards. They're valentines but I think they're general enough that they could be more than that. I painted three hearts on cardstock and then added an embellishment - they're simply but I love them!

I love treasuries!

I really do - it's this special little thrill when someone likes what you do and puts it together with other things they like and the whole is always so interesting! This one was made by GenuineArticle ( - thank you! I've decided to include links to all of the shops featured in this treasury so that if you want to see more it's easy to do!
