Kelp Basket by Leah Danberg
The Craft Market was great! I got through the whole thing, saw lots of really beautiful work and said Hi to some of my friends, but only lasted two hours instead of my usual 4 1/2. Every time I went to a friends booth, I made them get up from their chair so I could rest my foot. Owwie. But I'm not complaining. Just loving being able to walk.
I was a baaad girl and bought this lovely basket. It's made out of actual dried seaweed. I've been gazing longingly at Leah's work for years (really), but am such a bad housekeeper that I wouldn't allow myself to own one. I was just sure I'd drop it, crush it, damage it, something. But I recently got a glass case, so I bought myself another little prezzie. Gotta stop that. Leah doesn't have a website, but if you're interested, e-mail me and I'll give you her phone number. I also picked up a little some'in-some'in for a friend's b-day, but I can't take a pic for you for obvious reasons. Her birthday isn't until next month.
Then when I got home, I read an e-mail telling me that my work was in an Etsy treasury! Woo Hoo. My first one. So exciting.

Yesterday after my Guild meeting, I thought I'd peruse other Treasuries and lo and behold, I was in a second one. So in the month I've been with Etsy, I've sold two pairs of earrings, been in two Treasuries and applied for membership in EtsyMetal. Won't know if I got in for a few weeks. I'll let you know.

Hope you had a great weekend too!
