My very first Etsy purchase






















I was thinking this evening about my first experiences with Etsy. Not sure why - maybe because I'm pretty stoked about successfully selling three pairs of shoes on ebay (with MANY more to go).






















And here it is - my first purchase! I don't remember how long I'd explored Etsy before I formally signed up in order to buy (early 2007). I fell head over heels in love with these tiny needle felted penguins and still have and love this book, which I proceeded to torture my patient staff and coworkers with once it arrived from its oversees trek.

Mind you, I haven't tried to make any of these wee critters, but a girl can look, right?

Oh, I totally remember that precious book! A welcome respite of "kawaii" in a world of "why can't you just do what I want you to do?"
