Well, I’ve been attempting to get everything “hooked up” with each other…got some of it accomplished, but not all and have a problem with the My Etsy tab on Facebook. When I click on the My Etsy tab via Facebook, my shop looks messed up, out of order and some of the pictures don’t come across. Guess I’ll have to check in with tech support… :-( Wonder which one...Etsy or Facebook?
I have another quote for you today. “Lord, show me your beauty when I read your word. Help me to reflect it in the way I live…” (The Word Amoung Us”). Wow! Easy to pray for and say, hard to actually do.
Today I will work in my studio. I will make and pour plaster slabs; after they cure I will share with you what I plan to do with these slabs. :-) I sat in front of the computer most of last evening (watching the Olimpics out of the corner of my eye at the same time) doing the math that is required to make a good plaster mix and pour. Maybe that’s another reason I like clay so much…it’s got so many “toys” that go with it. :-) Maybe I’ll take pictures of the process and share them with you…see if I actually get that done.
I’m a certified scuba diver (haven’t had the opportunity to “get wet” in many years, though) and I think that sport’s many “toys” is one reason I love it so much. That and getting to “break the rules of Nature” by breathing underwater! - plus getting to be up close and personal with wild animals!
If you haven’t been to on Etsy.com, do yourself a favor and take a minute and look it over (of course, it’ll take more than a minute because there is so much to see). It’s the most wonderful place for finding gifts of all kinds, handmade or vintage, totally unique and the sellers are wonderful. I have had some of the nicest experiences; I used Etsy.com for some of my Christmas shopping (check out BeautifulSoaps on top right). It feels so good to give a gift you know was handmade and of high quality. I found, too that people have put Etsy shops as gift suggestions for wedding/baby registries. I never thought of that…totally a cool idea, don’t you think?
Gonna head out to the studio now.
