Do you want the bad news or the good?

I hate that question don't you?

I always pick the bad news first because I'm hoping I can end on a happy news. So with that in mind, I'll let you know that a sad thing happened earlier in the week with the closure of the Dotty Divas blog. Katy who runs the blog from the UK felt she could no longer devote the time and cost necessary to keep it running as sponsors weren't forthcoming, and the challenge entries were dwindling. So I guess that makes me an ex-Diva :(

But the good news is that I finally got around to opening my own Etsy. I've been thinking about it for a while and it seemed like it was now or never. I told my husband over dinner one night I was thinking I might go ahead and do it, and he said "good for you" which was totally not what I was expecting. Not that he's ever not supportive, but I thought he might try and talk some "common sense" into me (his kind of common sense you know?!) like "do you have time for this?", "what about when you go back to work?" and other very valid questions. I'm not sure the answers to those, especially the latter, but I figure one step at a time right?

As far as my Etsy goes, it'll be a mix of all sorts of things that I make for myself anyway but with the opportunity of sharing them with a wider audience than just my family. So far I've only listed a couple of journals and hair clips but have a few other things in mind and we'll just see what evolves from there.
