Have you heard of Craft Cult?

Craft Cult is pretty cool for tracking your Etsy Hearts and Views.
Go to craftcult.com and type in your Etsy shop ID number and you will see all of your items listed and who loves them.
Another cool feature is the that they keep a "Vault" of all areas were you may be featured on Etsy. I was so lucky to be on the Front Page today...For the brief moment. Of course I missed it. But you can go and pull up the Treasury used from the vault. See pics below:
Here is the screen print of the actual Treasury from DesigningIt.etsy.com
Thank-you Carol for making such great choices!!

What Tools NOT to use

I have been working some more on forming and SOLDERING flower shapes. This is painstaking for me as I really do not know what I am doing. So I got all the parts shaped. I actually got them soldered together using Eutectic Solder, which is very high melt and a BUGGER sometimes work with. I cleaned them....the next morning hubby turned on the disposer to clicketty clank grind grind. He knew right away as sadly this was not my first use of this tool. I thought I had been so careful, using the other sink. WAAHHHHHH.
