how'd everyone do? i received no sales, but over 30 hearts from all over the country and the world. did one of the treasuries make it to the front page?

Brian- I used the craftcult tool for checking if one of your items was featured in a treasury on the front page (www.craftcult.com/etsyfeatured.php). The search didn't bring up any front page feature in the last 24 hours. So it seems that the treasury blitz strategy is just proving to be pretty effective- and that you're a talented photographer!
