This started as a forum thread today. Then magnoliastreet put it on her blog. I figured I will too. *is copying, oh no :P*
Thanks to Etsy:
-I've discovered how much I really need to be creative.
-I've found out that I really love photography, whether I'm good at it remains to be determined.
-I look at everything wonder how they made it. How could I make it?
-I've 'met' a ton of super-cool talented people, artists of all kinds.
-I've decided that I want designing and making things, my interests are too vast too narrow down, to be a part of my life forever, what I do when I grow up. :P
-I've loaded up my room with more bits of paper, string, beads, and fabric.
-My family asks about my Etsy friends regularly. I still live at home. It's funny.
-My family asks if I can use things for packaging or reconstruction before they throw them away. I love FREE!
-I don't get much done sometimes. The ETC sections of the forums is addicting.
-I've found lots of other cool sites: Flickr, Blogger, Deviantart...to name a few. I was pretty sheltered.
-I desperately want to try about a dozen new techniques, that I knew nothing about prior to Etsy.
Etsy has seriously opened up so much to me. It's made this time when I don't have a job easier. (Though honestly, I quit my job with a lot of happiness. It's just the regular money that I miss.) I don't get to buy as much as I like...I like a lot.
You can answer, now. :)
