Boston Sunset Photo


I just had to try to capture the sunset out my office window today - here's a crappy shot with my phone. If you're in Boston right now (4:27) - find a window!!

Hmmm...Etsy Competitor?

I stumbled across this site called Big Cartel, which appears to be very similar to Etsy, though more focused on Band Merch and the like. It has some nice features though, I like the customizable shop appearance and the ability to generate Gift Certificates through Paypal. It's set up as more of an independent store - no obvious links to Big Cartel, your shop is it's own entity. It doesn't have the community touchy-feely thing like Etsy, but has some interesting ideas. Here's a link to their blog.

Something to think about............

Hurray! I'm in an Etsy Tresury List!



My first Treasury listing for a few days courtesy of Ana Romero! (Check out her shop) The Little House bag is featured, and it's one of my favorites, too. Hopefully I'll gain some more exposure.

On a second note, I finally got a new digital camera and have redone all of my product shots, so they look more professional. I still need to work on the correct lighting, but I'm getting there.

AND, I'm finalizing some new patterns in Illustrator for a hat, small pouch, and a different bag shape - I'm trying to make something triangular......
