i just love running into other people's etsy shops after they mark one of my items a favorite. etsy is so well set up that one can discover whole new worlds, see what other's imaginations are up to, how people make such efforts to supplement their incomes and how infinite the imagination can be. all be seeing who likes you.
case in point, my running into Glowtoes http://www.etsy.com/profile.php?user_id=5656849. her work just sparked the will to get back into sewing again, sitting for hours at my art table & playing with the mounds of fabric i have collected over the years.
