Having an Etsy shop is mostly wonderful — unless, of course, you ever go to the Etsy site. There you are, just checking your stats and all of a sudden…oooh, what’s that? Wooden lockets? And a few hours later you have a cart full of goodness and an empty paypal account.
During my last binge I scored this beauty:
Fuse is a zine all about yarnbombing, and it is deluxe. They had me at that throwback $2 price tag, but there is plenty inside to love. Oh, and that sewn spine – love it.
And while I was at it, I figured I needed to buy some roll-on perfume from Wicked Soaps. Who doesn’t want to get all nostalgic and smell like vanilla (technically “Vanilla Noir”) while possibly singing Debbie Gibson’s greatest hits.
But I wasn’t completely selfish – I did buy my sister the best present ever. You know, she’s like the wind.
Just when you thought the world didn’t have enough Dirty Dancing references! Oh, and while I was buying from the Carbon Crusader, I figured I better get a few pencils for myself.
I use them to track my Etsy sales and expenses – oh no! I’ve come full circle.
