All I want to do these days is make stuff. So, inspired by Ashley, I decided to start an Etsy shop. I’m adding new things slowly, but Your Heart Out already featured one of my bags on Friday! This is a close-up of the bag I made Erica for her birthday, of which there is another on Etsy that has yet to be monogrammed. I also realized I can put my vintage shopping luck to use here. One thing I love about living in Utah are the D.I.s and other thrift shops. Some of my favorite items in my closet and jewelry box are thrifting finds. I figure the time I spend scouring would be worth the price for somebody to acquire some of the gems that I can’t keep myself. Like this dress my sissy modeled. So my Etsy shop is part my own sewing experiments and part vintage treasure trove. I’m taking the approach that I wouldn’t sell something on Etsy, whether I made it or found it, that I wouldn’t want to keep myself. Take a look, it has been christened Stolen Pony. Maybe I’ll put a widget in the sidebar so you can see the new things that get added.
Speaking of Etsy, I got some adorable rings and hairpins the other day from this cool shop.
