I have a list of words, currently numbered at 139, and each week I go to an online random number generator to get...(Wait for it!)...a randomly generated number! I use this number to point me to the tag word that I'll use to search for images by Etsy POE Team members that will populate that week's feature. This week that word turned out to be "Shadow" which produced a list of 6 pages, and 239 listings. It's a challenge to reduce that many fine images to a relative handful, but that, as they say, is the nature of the beast.
Originally, my target in this feature was to put together a collection of 10 images or so, but since I don't believe I've ever managed to limit myself to only "10 images", I decided to lift the target number and just go with what I feel. Ten images is now my minimum, and my maximum depends on the number of images in the pool and how I feel about things. I don't want to feature so many images that folks might get bored looking at them, and once I start approaching 20 images, posting them starts to get to be a drag, so now my limit falls somewhere between "10" and "folks might get bored / this is getting to be a drag".
This week we ended up with a collection of 20 images. Please take a look; I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!
Oh, and as always, please feel free to send me your word suggestions; the list is by no means limited to 139.
