Etsy fame!!!

It was with a stomach full of butterflies that I turned on my computer this morning and saw my own face staring back at me on the front page of Etsy.  The interview and photos were actually done well over a month ago but I was asked to not to announce my impending feature via the internet (though of course I had to tell all of my friends straight away!).  
Thank you to Warren Kirk for the beautiful photos of my studio, and for the portrait, which was akin to pulling teeth (for both photographer and very unenthusiastic subject).  Here are some of the shots that did not make it into the article:










Last but by no means least: HUGE huge thanks to the lovely Kirsteene Phelan, Etsy manager for Australia, for suggesting my shop in the first place!  I owe you my life Kirsteene!!!

It was lovely to see your smiling face on etsy - I went there for the first time in ages (the cold weather prompting me to search for long boots!) and it was a very exciting to see you featured!!!
