Another reason to love Etsy...
And the people that you "meet" - both buyers and sellers - are giving, and personable, and engaging. Another reason to love coming to my studio to "work" everyday, and another reason to love Etsy!
A short bit ago, I posed a question in the Etsy forums. A simple, but, granted, weird question. I'm looking for a real, natural, unoccupied (!!!) hornet's nest. Yes, for real. Tell you why in a sec. Within minutes, I had responses from people I will never meet face to face, but took time out of their busy day to respond to my query. Never ceases to amaze me.
OK - why I am looking for such an obscure item: I have a studio/warehouse that I work from each day listing, producing, shipping, etc. items for my two Etsy shops. It's my plan to run seasonal studio sales from here when the weather is conducive. And I want the place to look good and be inviting. And, truth be told, I love things of nature, and am REALLY into birds nests - they intrigue me.
So I'm thinking spring and thinking I want to start planning these sales, and want to spruce up the joint.
Above the door to my studio, I have a sign which I've adorned with some tree branches and I want to place a hornet's nest amid the branching. I'll also do a nest, but I can create or find one of them more easily than a hornet's nest.
But, gee, thanks to you all who responded and gave me another reason to love Etsy today! You're the best!
