Squee!

[self indulgence]

On Etsy, people can create what are called Treasuries. They are lists of items within a particular theme and showcases different artists (it is against the rules to use it for self-promotion). Being in bar review hell, I decided to create one called "res ipsa loquitur," which means "the thing speaks for itself." It's actually a term involving negligence, but I'm not gonna bore you with the scholarly specifics. I picked abstract artworks because a lot of people say they don't know what the heck they're looking at, but I find beauty in them. In other words, the artworks speak for themselves.

This morning I found out that my Treasury made the front page of Etsy. I was so stoked! It was only a few fleeting hours, but front page is kind of a big deal.
