A Funny Thing Happened to Me on the Way to the Post Office

The other day I was checking my Etsy site stats when I noticed that I'd received a good deal of traffic from Regretsy.  For the uninitiated, Regretsy is an un-Etsy affiliated web site dedicated to unabashedly bashing the handiwork of hard-working Etsians.  Curious about which of my pieces had achieved such notoriety, I pressed on and found that it was my relatively demure Fabulous Felt Pineapple Paradise Necklace, which I had - and here's the kicker - sold earlier that week as part of a much larger order.  Guess that thing they say about there being no such thing as bad press is true :)

Tracy, sometimes being an artist is such a darn thankless job. We put our heart and soul into our work and then put it out there for others to judge.

This sucks that your beautiful necklace was posted there because it DOES NOT belong there (and lots of bad karma for the poster!) but I'm glad you get the last laugh by having your wonderful necklace sell.

Yes-a thankless life we lead at times...but I admire your moxy here!

Hugs, my friend:)
