A New Venture

Just a quick post here on a Sunday afternoon. The craft fair was a success in spite of the low turnout. It was a fairly new craft fair, and perhaps not as well advertised. It's also a bit out of the way. But I was pleased. I met a fellow blogger there - Pondside, who has a lovely blog full of optimism and creativity. She is the first of my blogging friends that I've met in person and our short chat was a highlight of the day.

Today, I opened an Etsy shop. I've thought about it for a long time and today, took the plunge. I've listed three of my journals there and hope to add more of whatever I'm inspired to create.


It's been a grey Sunday - time to head downstairs and enjoy warming soup for supper.

  7. It was lovely to meet you too, Lorrie! Funny, but I was wondering why you didn't open an Etsy shop - your things are so well-made and original. Good luck!

    ~ Great to meet another Twilight fan! Are you going to see any of the Twilight movies? I can't seem to get enough of a fix of it! Did you know you can read a partial draft of the 5th book Stephanie Meyer was writing, she has a link to it on her website.... it's unfinished but at least it's more Twilight!
