My Etsy Store!
You see, this past winter, we moved to Beech Mountain, North Carolina. And starting the very next day after we moved into our new home, it snowed a lot. I mean a LOT. Even the locals were impressed. So we spent many a long evening sitting by the fire. What do you do when you're in a situation like that? Well, I found out that I have an urge to make pretty things out of soft and colorful felt - small things that enable me to work pretty much wherever instead of having to slink off to the solitude of a spacious sewing room (which I no longer have).
Well, this past winter, just as our area's snow allotment was especially generous and was starting to stack up quite a bit, meaning my time by the fire increased and, consequently, my felt creations . . . well, they were starting to stack up too. My husband (no doubt inspired by a fitful dream one night in which he discovered he couldn't work on his own stuff because our shared project room was buried in felt animals) suggested: "Why don't you set up an Etsy store, honey?"
So, quite in line with my usual alacrity, when it comes to actually doing something about a nifty idea that turns me on, several months later . . . I have finally done it: I now have an Etsy Store. Had I needed to come up with a new name for it, Alex would still be waiting for some sort of pressure value to relieve him of all of my new creations; but instead I chose to name it after this blog. After all, the last word still is . . . bliss - mine, to be exact. If in selling a few of my visions made incarnate, I spread this bliss I feel to others and finance the purchase of more soft felt, pretty fabrics, and colorful paints, etc., so much the better!
If you wanna' be part of this cycle, I invite you to visit my Etsy Store: The Last Word Is Bliss!
