What Etsy has given me...

I am always amazed how the little things in life surprise you!  I love Etsy.  There are many reasons.  I love that I have a craft I love doing, and I can share it with other people.  I love that Etsy is a wonderful community and so supportive.  I love that all I have to do is ask a question, no matter how silly, and it always gets answered.  I love Etsy because it has given me confidence in my craft to be very proud of what I do.

Most of all...  I love Etsy...  because of the relationships!

This weekend my friend, JennaDesigns, took time out of her SUPER BUSY schedule to come and visit.  She brought pumpkin cheesecake with gingersnap crust... which I would have never attempted to make!  I got to meet her son, Isaac.  He is an absoloute angel!  And, of course her gorgeous baby Hannah.  I think my Ashley would've held her all night if the other kids didn't want to play.  It was a great evening.  I am so far away from family and friends, 14 hours, that I have become somewhat of a recluse.  It was nice to just get a chance to be around another etsy mom.  Thank you Jen, for the amazing cheesecake (I want the recipe so I can attempt it, no promises)!  I appreciate you and your family so much!

  1. OK, seriously Sally... you're bringing tears to my eyes! I can't begin to tell you how nice it is to have a friend here too - although I've lived here quite a while, I've not made much effort to make friends outside of "friends" I inherited with relationships. I am so very glad to have met someone with whom I share so much in common and have someone who I can brainstorm ideas with and just spend time with. And yes - someone who gets Etsy! :) My children and I had a wonderful time on Saturday - it was easily the highlight of our week! I will be sure to e-mail you the cheesecake recipe tomorrow (and you'll do fine making it, I promise!). Have faith and I'll talk to you soon!
