Guys, it’s really cold outside. Too cold, really. I just got back from coffee with my friend Corey and my hands are so numb it’s difficult to type. I’m going to commit myself to my bedroom and my stitching with my space heater for the next couple hours, and I encourage the rest of you to do the same!
If you’re stuck in that Facebook-Wordpress-Instagram infinite loop of social media, here’s a few links which might tickle your fancy.
You could read this spot-on opinion piece from Wired on how Etsy is starting to smell like the inside of a Wal-Mart.
Or, you could watch this video of my hero (and fake namesake) Erica Wilson stitching an owl.
You might also want to listen to this super awesome, early release of The Mountain Goats new song, in anticipation of their album coming out in March. Trust me, I’m not a fan of pro-wrestling, but this tune will have you away from your computer and shaking your hips in no time.
Or you could buckle down and make a delicious pavlova which is all I’ve been able to think about since I had some at a dinner party last weekend.
If you do read that first piece, tell me what you think! I’ve been hemming and hawing about starting an online store as a way to gain support for this little hole in the internet and my first choice was going to be Etsy. But, as an individual who has been attempting to incorporate less corporate choices into my life – I’m looking elsewhere.
Do you have an online shop? What role does it play in your creative life? How does it really make you feel?
