As most of you know, I have been following Everything Etsy for quite some time now and the talented husband/wife team of Tim and Kim have recently updated their blog with a brand new and incredibly fabulous new look! The blog includes many new features and fun stuff including buttons, business advise, and SWEET (Simply Wonderful Everything Etsy Team). Tonight I learned that they will be hosting weekly Thursday night blog parties in order to promote new handmade items. It is a great way to discover new artisans, Etsy shops, and blogs.
I have decided to submit my most recent Etsy shop listing called "Definition". It is so new that I don't even have all five of my photographs posted yet (the sun has not shown itself here in over a week!). Definition is a set of 12 mini pinwheel cupcake toppers made from the salvaged pages of a vintage American Heritage paperback dictionary. Well, it is vintage by Etsy's standards - I used it in high school, does that make me vintage too? Either way, it was falling apart and needed new life breathed into it. 60 some odd pages are being used to fulfill a custom request for a lovely lady who is throwing her mother (a former librarian) a huge birthday party in April. How fitting! The rest I hope to use as pinwheels, tags, in inspiration kits, and anything else I can come up with.
