Two Year Etsyversary

It's been two years since I joined the fabulous Etsy community.. and I have enjoyed almost every moment of it.. I  wanted to do something to commemorate the occasion. I was inspired my  Shop Dirtsa  and her chalkboard maps to create a non chalk board digital version for myself. What started out as a fun activity turned out to be an interesting visual study of just where my customers are and a few pleasant surprises.  I tried not to think of the numbers... though we all know, all we really want to think is about the numbers.. so here they are: 24 months 38 sales 2 continents 15 states 25 cities and I'm just getting started :) And on a completely other note D turns 11 months today..                    Etsy             Instagram             Twitter             Bloglovin   


It was not very long ago that Etsy introduced the Activity Feed and Circles. And with them in my life now I can't imagine Etsy without them. They are a great way to come across so many more talented people, great eye candy and creativity. So I took this as an opportunity to comb through my circle as well as the people who added me to theirs and find some of my favorite things. Here are just a few to begin with.   Photo Grunt Ink Wear 99 Bayan Hippo                                                                            Rickettsia   Rutabagasix   Lopamudra Home Decor Elaa Bags Anne Clark Violet Underground Quirky Beauty                    Etsy             Instagram             Twitter             Bloglovin   

Some Blossoms and Mother's Day

I just celebrated my first Mother's Day. D is almost 11 months old and I can't believe that this time last year he was the little guy kicking me on the inside.. now he kicks on the outside. I didn't expect much of the day and we didn't do anything special. We just spent the day at home. We woke up at the crack of dawn as usual..because that is the time D has decided is morning. We ran errands and tried and failed at finishing the never ending list of chores. We went for a drive, it was a glorious warm sunny day and just happened to drive by a park with swings. We just had to stop. D hadn't experienced the joy of a swing yet and I crossed my fingers hoping he would love a swing a much a I do. M was more skeptical. We gave the swing a little push and D was wide eyed in surprise, we followed with another small hesitant push and D erupted in laughter. He squealed with joy making me reciprocating his joy with a squeal of my own. It was in that moment, seeing his face
