I won a bunch of decorative tape; so can you!

Hello everybody!

I’ve been a member of Etsy.com since 2005. At the time I had decided to focus on getting my art out into the world, and stumbled upon etsy one day. Etsy was pretty new, and it seemed a big risk to spend $80 on a camera to use to photograph my artwork. Little did I know how my art life would be wonderfully shaped by Etsy!

I was one of the first 4,000 artists to join Etsy (#3907!), and in those days it was easier to be found than it is now; I was lucky that my store became one of the Top 100 Sellers! (Click HERE to see my avatar in the #38 spot in September 2006.) And my editor for my most recent book, The Art of Silliness, found me on Etsy, too… I love Etsy!

Tomorrow is the Etsy Craft Party, “a global celebration of meeting and making,” which will be held around the world on Saturday from 12-6pm. (Seattle’s event will be held at 1430 Western Ave., right in front of Ugly Baby and La Rue [@uglybabyandlaru]. It’s a street party for artists! There will be swag bags and hourly raffle prizes… I donated classes from Carla Sonheim Presents to the raffle, so if you are in Seattle, come by for a chance to win a free online class!)

When I registered for the party, I was entered in a contest to win a box of decorative tape from 3M/@scotchproducts (a sponsor of the event)… and I WON!

(See? Etsy has been so good to me.)


So I’m sharing my tape-wealth. 😀
