The interface for michellepatterns.com doesn't have enough flexibility to allow for only showing a few items from each category on the main page. As I add more items it just keeps getting more and more crowded.
There are some ways to make it possible to reorganize & declutter, but they are not simple. So maybe in the future, but not now. Etsy also recently made changes to how they charge for listing multiples of items, so things have dramatically improved there as far as having more inventory available.
Anyway, hope everyone is having a nice Saturday!
