Etsy is addictive

I am SO excited about etsy..haven't even really had the time to place more than two things up in my store there...but just seeing what others have created out there..all over the world, and are selling is incredible. Now I've found out that there is a ring you can join if you blog and have an etsy shop. I am in the process of working that out. For all you artists and illustrators out there, you should GET OVER there and list some of your work. You can sell note cards, prints, (use your imagination) It's a whole separate venue to be seen and sort of network in an arena that is fresh (some of us can get a bit isolated at our drawing tables as illustrators, huddling over our work..or browsing libraries for picture books to enjoy other's art... I'm sure it's going to be an even bigger thing in the coming months and years. There are fascinating aspects of it, where you can find items to match certain colors, and find favorite artists and see who else enjoys those artists...which leads you into new areas (it's like ebay, only for artists and creative folks..indies...)
