Since discovering Etsy in November of 2007 - I have been immersed... setting up my shop, getting my name/product recognized in the Etsy community and learning the ins & outs of the site. One fanatic thing about Etsy is the forums. This is where you can promote, gain knowledge, join Etsy teams and meet other Etisans. I just happened to stumble on a "Call for Artists" post from an established Etsian - Timothy Adam, of TimothyAdamDesigns, who was looking for artists to feature in his 3rd edition of Handbook to Handmade.... a coffee table book and tribute to Etsy Artisans. In this book you will find 36 people with amazing talents and I am happy to be included as one of them! I am thinking I
may even sign up for another volume.
It is an investment and good resource to take to shows. This book has gone all over the US and to the UK.
Sadly, after only having the book a matter of days, my 3yr old spilled water on it. It took me an hour to blow dry the pages and the back page is ruined... half the book has wavy pages - but no content has been lost... and my pages still look great. At some point I would like to replace it with a fresh copy.
