I'm unabashedly an Etsy addict. I have more feedback about things I've purchased than things I've sold - and I have a considerably large collection of artwork and handmade items from Etsians. It's kind of a problem. I know (deep down in my marrow) that I don't need any more things - that I am content to Make Do and Mend - that I can be happy without possessions. While that may be true, I also like beautiful little things.
Unfortunately, I'm on a spending freeze. The husband and I have decided that some of my hard-earned craft dollars should go back into our savings account to help cover the cost of wool and expenses - at least until I've made back what I spent to get my shop up and running. When and if I am ever square again and making a little profit, I will know exactly what to spend it on:
Skeptis is the first of many stops on my future spending spree. I love Nat's shop and was delighted to see that she featured my chubby duffers in a hilarious post on her awesome blog. I love her jewelry. Love. It.
In the meantime, I will continue to make Treasuries and scope out the Etsy scene and watch my Favorites list grow to ridiculous proportions. I'm doing fine "going without," but I have to admit, with artists like Nat floating around in the world, sometimes it's kind of agony.
