An Etsy Store in the Making!

Yes, that's right.  An Etsy store.  I'm starting it off by offering a selection of smaller artworks, such as my crocheted necklaces, hats, scarves, and maybe some woven wall hangings.  My shop is called Loops And Stone, and you can see I have information about my crochet jewelry on my website from the menu and under the artwork section that now links to the store in Etsy.

 I definitely want my work to be easily accessible, and while I'm promoting my store, I'll be making some trendy crafts that inspire me.  I want to expand my textile art with weaving and embroidery – from these links you can see works that inspire me, located in my handy Pinterest boards.  Please follow me if you're a fellow Pinner, I love checking out and following others' boards.

Another revelation this past week has been INSTAGRAM!  How did I go so long without an Instagram account?  It's so easy to post casual photos about my work!  If you have an Instagram, follow me there too, I'm going to follow everyone who follows me back, no lie.  It's so much fun!

#Weaving. Small study, teaching myself how to create woven wall hangings.

See how exciting this is??  I Just finished that small weaving the other night, and can't wait to share more! 

On another happy note....

It's my birthday today!!

Happy birthday to me, I'll be enjoying myself today.  And even if it's not your birthday too, have a wonderful day and enjoy life because every moment is a unique one and we are all lucky to be living in such a complex world.  If it was any other way, we would lead boring lives.  Have a super fun today!
