Food for the crafty soul

If you're a fan of handmade stuff and you haven't checked out Etsy yet, stop reading this and hop on over there. This post will still be here when you get back.

For those of you already familiar with the wonders of Etsy, you might also know they're headquartered in good ol' Brooklyn only a mile and a half from my apartment. I'm heading over tonight for Open Craft Monday. I'm actually getting ready to head out now. My work networks were once again totally screwed... which meant another day with NO work done. My projects are mounting. My emails are through the roof. And I can't get to any of it. Nice. I have all this guilt for being so behind, but none of it is my fault. Why the guilt? I'm a sucker. This is why I need to get out. I need to learn not to take responsibility for everything that happens. Most of it is completely out of my control. No need feeling guilty about something I didn't cause.

I'm off to Etsy Labs to soothe my creative soul and work out some of this nervous energy that's been making me queasy all day.






I might make some more owls.

Hey there. I think your link is screwy. It goes to estsy.com instead of etsy.com (SO not the same thing.) I'm really enjoying your posts. Fresh approach, good thoughts. :)
