Upon learning that I was highlighted on Regretsy this week, a brief twinge of concern passed through me. Regretsy is the hilariously witty clearinghouse for all things gone horribly wrong in the world of art and crafting. Thanks to a shout out from Dane over at Monkey Minion Press, I learned I was part of Regretsy’s “Awesome Purchase of the Week” post. Thanks to April’s kind words of support and spotlight on F. Scott Fetchgerald, I spent the next 24 hours constantly fulfilling Etsy orders. Thank you Regretsy and all that came by to shop!
