The treasury I assembled last night
suddenly appeared on the Etsy front page!

Etsy Front Page
I had just enough time to get a screenshot...

...and then seconds later, the item on the top left sold.

I loved that poster:

Designed by Francesca Montanari [ratmusque on etsy]

Lesson learned.

You win some, you lose some,
The front page is powerful,
...and next time I like something that much, it's mine.


a travelling journal.

Last week I was the lucky first person to break in Book 3 of Etsyjournal:

Polly in Etsy Journal 3 [detail]

Polly in Etsy Journal 3! Polly in Etsy Journal 3!

Please remember, dear friends, swallowing pits is very bad for you, and will result in strange things growing out of your body. Consider yourself warned!

Four handmade books are travelling from one Etsian to another, and after each artist is done, the spreads are being posted to the Etsyjournal blog. The gorgeous book was handmade by Lauren [stellaloella on etsy]. It took me a few days to get started, I was totally blown away by how perfect it was.

I haven't spent much time in the studio at all this year, have mostly been working on prints from the house. Here is a photo of what I've been missing:
My Studio

I hope to get back there soon.
