~~~I Made It to the Front Page Of Etsy~~~~~~

So, last night my bestest Etsy friend in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD
was the one to tell me I had been on the Front Page of etsy! I hardly
ever check the Heart-O-Matic Vault section, just because I never
thought one of my seashells would make it, well, I was wrong! This
was picked by admin and I am thrilled! It was on a few weeks ago and
the shell featured sold at that exact time! A Huge Thank You to Toni
for taking the time to help me in all things Etsy. Her and her husband
have a shop where they hand print amazing tees, tunics and bags. I
wish I could figure out how to take a screen shot of the fabulous
Treasuries she puts together (I'm still working on that :) this is her
shop, ( I'm still learning how to put up a live link). Little by
little I'm learning and slowly but surely all the hard work invested into
online selling (and learning computers) will let me continue doing what
I love, hand painting sea shells.


  1. Congrats! It's a nice feeling isn't it?

    To take a screen shot that will include the title of the treasury. Hit F11, then press alt and print screen simultaneously. Then open up Paint and go to hit edit then hit paste. Then you name and save your file in a jpeg format to your hard drive.

    Do it quickly the main treasury expires!

    Hope that helps.

  2. Oh my dear Kim,

    I'm so tickled for you. I knew it was only a matter of time before Etsy admin recognized the brilliance of your work. I'm sure this is the first of many wonderful things to come.
    (oh and hugs for the awesome shout out!)

    Keep the Faith - ♥toni

  3. BeachHouseLiving,
    Thank You so much for the help!
    But I'm still confused (it doesn't take much as you'll see :)
    I did the first step and actually got the right screen,
    then what?
    where do I open paint? I can't find it anywhere, is there a step before that?
    I will be eternally grateful when I can get Toni's treasury here!
    Thank You, Thank You!
