Woke up to a nice surprise =)

Hello! Hope you are having a great holiday time. I'm at my parent's house and I woke up to a very nice surprise. I was interviewed by Etsy's MaryMary last month about my work, and the interview got featured today on Etsy's blog. You can read all about it on the "Quit your day job" section of their blog.

See you there!


You are my new hero! I found you from an emailing from Etsy's blog. I am about to begin that journey in 2009. Congratulations on your huge success and living your dreams!
Your article was my favorite of all the quit your day job series! I really enjoyed reading it and your creations are fabulous! Happy Holidays to you and your family!

I"m so glad to know more about the beginning of your Etsy career... children are usually reasons for deep changes in our professional life, I know that for sure.
And the picture of yourself is really beautiful (and no huge circles under the eyes ^^)
Great article! I quit my job 9 years ago to create art for ebay too. It's especially nice because I can raise my nearly 3 year old daughter and work when my husband gets home. I started etsy about a year ago. Hope to sell more there in 2009. I like it much better than ebay.
Happy Holidays!
