A First For Me

Okay so this is something totally new for me. I've decided to break down and join the blogging world. I'm hoping that I will keep up on this and that it will give me a welcome reprieve from working on dissertation and fellowship proposals and homework.

I'm not all that great with talking about myself. But as you can see from the title of my blog I'm hoping to focus on crafting. This first post will feature my Etsy store, but in future postings (hopefully daily) I'd like to focus on some of the wonderful and very talented artists I have met this first year of opening my store on Etsy.

So first things first: This is my store. Most of the items featured are crocheted items that are small and fairly quick to work up in what free time I have when I'm not working at school.
This first item is a set of wash cloths I made. I have many more listed in my store that are just as colorful. I love to work with variegated yarn. The other type of item my store is known for are the crocheted fishy purses I make. Pictured above is my newest one. They take a little while to make but I hope to get some more done.The last item I'd like to feature is some jewelry made by my husband :) These pieces are his first attempts and I'm encouraging him to keep with it. I hope to be able to add some bracelets and earrings made by him in the future.

I hope you've enjoyed this introduction to my shop. Tomorrow I will begin featuring my fellow Etsyians.

Hey marine :)
Welcome to blogging! I started out to be all about etsy, but it turned into something else.
Have fun with it!
