Does submitting a picture of puffin crafts I've made, in which the comments mention I'm selling them on etsy, count as advertising content?

Well, Yes. Though you would be ok in just including a link to your page without further comment. Thus people are not urged into doing something.
I just don't wont people feel annoyed by feeling they are targeted by people "aggressive" advertising.
This is a group of visual exchange. If people want to buy of you, they will contact you on their own free will.
So if you would not mind to submit without such comments I would be most obliged.
Though between you and me, I am not intent in strict control of every content, unless it stick out like a sore thumb ;) lol.
Thanks for asking.

Merci beaucoup s'il vous plaît n'hésitez pas à nous rejoindre.
Désolé je ne parle pas français cela a été fait par le traducteur de google.
Ainsi il pourrait être tout faux pour autant que je connais et je veux dire de macareux est à l'envers.

Thank You very much please feel free to join us.
Sorry I speak no french this was done by the google translator.
So it could be all wrong for all I know and mean my puffin is up side down.

That's interesting but the information is 3 years old.
Taking a small-sample survey every 5 years leaves an awful lot of speculation and little hard fact.
I wonder what the 2013 survey will show?
