It seems that we have new tagging guidelines on etsy. Learn them, love them, use them.

I'm wearing this today. It's a bit lighter than my usual winddefense skirt, but seems to work just as well. It fits best over the stomach.

I'm feeling torn. I wanted to go back to the farmer's market this weekend, but after sleeping all day today, I don't think so. Maybe the church sale next week?

Sweet Bamboo Soap:

smell: like the best citrus in the world.
lather: a lot
in shower smell: very nice and intense.
out of shower: some lingering on skin, nice if you don't mind smelling all girly all day.
Size: 3 oz.
Notes: No clue what bamboo has to do with anything.

There's a certain philosophy to destashing. While to a certain extent I believe in the creative chaos of the bead box, at a certain point you need to pare things down. I think that if you haven't used them in four months, it's time to destash them. When you clear out your beadbox, you make room for new beads and new ideas to come in.

Rokali, the owner of etsy is featured in the new york times.

There is a new bill in congress dealing with copycats.
Of course, the context is different. Although copycats are argued about every single day on etsy, I think the relationship is different- as barely anyone can afford $1000 for a shoe with a label on it, and on etsy, the copier and the copiee are in the same marketplace. On the other hand, the real issue on etsy is that many of us use commercially available materials and techniques that are very basic. A lot of toes get stepped on because there are not that many different ways to make a pair of earrings or a bag.

There's a storque. I've noticed that I'm more of a link blogger. I don't craft very verbally. This pretty thing goes with that pretty thing, and that's the end of it.
