Have I mentioned yet that I LOVE Etsy

Love, I mean serious love! I am constantly amazed at some of the incredibly talented artist on Etsy. If by some crazy chance I haven't proclaimed my love for Etsy to you, let me proclaim now. Etsy is a website dedicated and created for artist who specialize in handcrafted work. You may immediately think of the potholders you made when you were 8, but it's way beyond that. Here is one of my favorite sellers - working class heros - this is a cover/case for a laptop.

One of my other favorites is an artist who makes these very intricate cards. Her name is Tracy Chong. Can you even imagine hand making these cards. It must take so much time.

So, I LOVE Etsy. And you can imagine my sheer joy when I found out that I was featured on Etsy's homepage. Wow! what an honor to be among such talented designers. I actually didn't see it on the front page, but this is what it looked like. That's me there towards the bottom. "Sweet Drops of Rain". What a way to start a week!
