Original Post

as I was reading another thread, I clicked on an interesting avatar, and saw something that I found so beautiful it moved me to tears: and I bought it! yes, I bought it, right there, on the spot!
it will be the perfect present for the love of my life's big 4-0....
there it is:

so, fellow sellers:
avatars reflecting your store do help!
an item priced high will find its lovestruck buyer!
participating in forums definitely help promotion!
that's what I learned today...and that navigating etsy sometimes make your purse suddenly really light! mmmmh...

You will not be disappointed. Aja's work is breathtaking. I'm saving up for my next piece (and drooling over what I already have).

The love of your life sure is lucky to have a thoughtful partner.
