That got me thinking: maybe it would be fun for US to buy from OTHERS OF US, if you see what I mean. And if it's not fun for YOU, it will at least be fun for ME.
If you make stuff and sell it, or if you have a friend or family member who makes stuff and sells it, email me: swistle at gmail dot com. We're getting pretty close to Christmas here, but I think there's still time for this if we move fast. I'm planning to use roughly this format:
- Black Sheeped (Kara Marie) of Baa Baa Black Sheep has an Etsy shop KaraRee
- Melissa H. of Under Construction has an Etsy shop Haworth Handmade
I'm going to talk to Kara about maybe posting the resulting list of shops on Maybe Painted Pink, too, so let me know if that's not okay for your shop.
I'm afraid I already bought Melissa H.'s last set of wooden buttons, and also one of only two clothespin-doll-making multi-pack kits. I was pretty sure they'd go fast, so I got to them first. SO SELFISH. Now I am nagging her to post some of her cute baby bibs--maybe sweet coordinated assortment sets of three? Hmm.
I also asked for Kara's "Rain Study" for Christmas, and it sold shortly after I mentioned it not very casually to Paul (I believe I was clutching his upper arms as I spoke), so I'm hoping it's MINE MINE ALL MINE.
