Hop over to my Etsy shop today for an exciting new listing: custom rubber stamps!
Inspired by my recent commission for my friend Olivia, I decided to make these available for all! Olivia came to me a few weeks ago in need of 3 wedding gifts. I carved out stamps for each couple, then Chris made these super fabulous redwood toppers for the rubber. exciting…
Well, not here in Tahoe at the moment, but in my Etsy shop: I just posted a listing for my snowflake card set. The stamp was one of my first creations, and I used it for Christmas gift wrap decorating. Now, it can be yours in a few short clicks!
Also, stay tuned for the January 12 unveiling of a super exciting design I completed last night!
I finally did it… though it’s just one measly listing so far, I thought I’d share the news: I am now an Etsy seller!
My first listing is my blooming cactus print. I originally created this stamp for my Christmas cards, but replaced the gold star with some blooms for year-round appeal.
Oh joy! Things went great at my craft fair debut!
Though I was expecting the worst due to the raging snowstorm that blew in yesterday, there were plenty of folks who braved the snow to support local vendors. I had a variety of customers, but the couple who bought a 20-pack of my cactuses for their holiday cards made my night. Thanks to all who came out, and especially to Beth and Lengua Viva for being such great hosts. Stay tuned for my Etsy shop (where I’ll sell my block printed creations year-round) coming soon!

Yep, I’m pretty obsessed with Etsy (note button to your right), and always dream of one day making the time to attend an Etsy Lab craft session. This week’s lab is so close to home I just have to share it with you: San Francisco’s Museum of Craft and Folk Art is hosting a quick and easy hat knitting project (pictured above) this Thursday December 3 from 6–8pm. It’s free, open to all skill levels and materials are provided!
All that and more! Felting demo with SF artist Jackie Huang, fiber store A Verb for Keeping Warm shares techniques for spinning yarn and locally brewed Trumer Pils to quench the thirst!
For those afar, a live demo project will be broadcasted via webcam in Etsy’s Virtual Labs at 1pm. To knit along, download the free pattern.
