Well, like so many of my artist friends have already done, I too have finally taken the Etsy Plunge!
I must confess, the thought of opening an Etsy shop never appealed to me. I had heard friends talking about it and even recommending it, but I just never thought I would want to. I'm so busy as it is, and the thought of having to have one more slot to keep filled seemed overwhelming, that is until Ebay wouldn't leave well enough alone, and also since I saw a very talented fellow artist on the cover of Somerset Studio magazine! Yep, a very talented artist not only graced the cover, but she also had a wonderful and lenghty feature in the mag, and I was so surprised to read how she was really noticed on Etsy. How can one go wrong I thought. Maybe more exposure is a good thing. I even shared my thoughts and intentions w/ a few of my friends, and it's nice to see some of them are also taking advantage of this opportunity and have taken the Etsy plunge too! It took me a while to put my intentions into action, but i've done it!
I just listed my first piece in my Etsy shop today.
It was super easy to do, and the price to list can't be beat!

A special thanks to my buddy Mo for all of her help, and also to Tonya for fixing my banner to fit my shop!
