Joining the Etsy Bandwagon!

Well, I've finally taken the plunge and joined Etsy! I've wrestled and wondered if there would be anyone interested in buying my work and realized there was only one way to find out... :)You can visit my shop at if you are interested. While I currently have 3 items available, I will be adding more in the next day or so and creating more based on demand. Mostly though, thanks for all your support as you read this blog and share your gifts online in your own blogs. Thanks for coming along the journey with me!

Thank you all for sharing your gifts, talents, and thoughts and taking the time to follow my blog. In this busy day and age, that really is a compliment!

The Rules: Pass it on and let each person you award know that you have awarded them.

Now to the hard part; the rules are that I have to send this along to 6 blogs...only six! I'm trying to narrow it down to those of you that may not have received one of these yet so...

So tiny, so much time!

Have you ever noticed how it's the tiniest things that take the most time? I made some polymer clay tiles and then handpainted them. I loved it and had so much fun that I didn't know how much time had gone by and frankly, I'm afraid to figure it out! :) They are about a 1/2 inch by 1/4 and as you can see, I had to stick them on a strip of tape just to hold them still for the painting. They also still need a little shiny glaze of some kind (more time!). Someone in the family (who shall remain nameless! :) ) didn't quite think the time was worth the itty-bitty results. I respectfully disagree. So, have you ever had a project that was so tiny in the final product that you wondered if it was worth the time and energy?
