Two new firsts for me!

I am now broadening my horizons! I have become such a huge fan of etsy and handmade gifts that I officially made my first etsy purchase! I bought custom bookends for a friend who's having a baby. I sent the shop owner a picture of the bedding set that the couple had registered for. She made a beautiful set of bookends with the baby's name on them. I will post a picture here later when I get home. I want to thank Leslie at Stymiepie Studios for doing such a beautiful job! Here is a link to her etsy shop! http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=7148733 I think this is the perfect gift for someone who's doing a book basket for their shower!! My first official etsy purchase was a wonderful experience, and I would definitely purchase from her again in the future. You can also check out her blog here: http://stymiepiestudios.blogspot.com/

So not only did I complete my first purchase.... but I'm also now part of a team. I'm officially on the EtsyNJ Team. I am very excited to be part of a team that will help each other grow! I love everything about Etsy, the connections I've made, the advice and things I've already learned. It's a great community, and I think it's going to be even better being part of a team!

  3. I love your enthusiasm for Etsy. I am right there with you. It is the best. I have a shop on Etsy but have not posted anything yet. Hopefully soon though. In the meantime I do craft shows.
