So – click on the link below to see the local news story my friend at WCCO wrote after I suggested she do a little write-up on Etsy and  the local MN Etsy street team!

Can you believe that sales on Etsy have tripled in the last year?!  exciting!

Etsy in the Minneapolis news

So, I am excited to say that a friend of mine from one of our local news stations, WCCO,  is running a little story on Etsy tonight at 10pm!  I believe they are including Etsy as a whole and also tidbits from our local MN Etsy street team artists!  After the story runs, I will post the video.

I have currently been a bit obsessed with hands-on printing techniques.  This is my latest favorite book.  It’s titled PRINTING BY HAND by Lena Corwin.    Lena explains in amazing detail many different hand printing/surface printing techniques from simple stenciling to block printing to many variations of screen printing.  Check out her blog here.

I just had a convo message in my Etsy shop email that I’ve been featured again on another blog.  It’s very flattering when this happens out of the blue.  It was a feature of Valentine Finds on Etsy.  Take a look here at the Bags and Buds blog – thanks Wendy!!

I am completely flattered and gracious to be featured on the “Vintage Indie” blog in an article about reusable holiday gift wrap!  Check it out right here!

 

I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season!

So, I know I’ve mentioned a pottery class that I was taking and I was able to bring home 5 finished pieces last night.  I wasn’t super thrilled about these pieces before they were glazed and fired, but I am really excited and happy about them!  Next week I bring home the rest of my pieces, at least 6 more that are being fired right now.  I still have a LOT to learn about hand-building and using the wheel, but it’s all a work in progress and I really enjoy it!

Can you tell my favorite color is blue?

 

 

Here’s a sneak peek of what’s coming in my Etsy shop.  The inventory right now is a bit low because I had a decent summer/early fall in sales.  Somedays I wish I had more time to sew/work, but then I would be missing out on precious time with my kids.  The time will come…

I just couldn’t resist adding a song for the day… Here is Foals with Balloons.  I really love this song… it reminds me of the alternative 80’s music I used to listen to back in the day.

Well folks, my Chinese Take-Outs are officially in a store!  You can see them if you visit this adorable and fun gift shop in downtown Minneapolis – CorAzoN.  The owner has a little area dedicated to local MN craftspeople and artisans.

As far as news on the Etsy front… I need to get in gear and get some more inventory going for that little online shop too.  I have some fun new fabrics that I’m hoping to work with real soon!

 

yeah, i’ve been bad about keeping up with this blog, taking a little hiatus from sewing/blogging and dealing with a few other things in life right now

 

BUT-  Yesterday, one of my new MN Etsy Street team friends included me in her Treasury West on Etsy!  It was so sweet of her – she said my polka dot Chinese Take-Out box inspired her!  Thanks, Chureen! 

 

on another note here’s a new song for today – I’m going to start including music selections in my blog because it’s always been the one thing that can really turn around a sour mood for me 🙂

This is the Doves and the song is “Snowden”

 

Happy Wednesday!
