just wanted to let you know that I received my cute-as-can-be package last week. i've already used some of the vintage buttons on a project I worked on today...will give you a "shout out" from my blog post about it. thanks again...what a very nice way to celebrate your etsy sales!


Hi. My name is Lara Berch. I have just launched a new website with step by step art tutorials. I was wondering if it's possible to exchange links with you. http://www.laraberch.com
Thank you very much for your time.

hi analise! i discovered your blog a few weeks ago, and I just wanted to say thank you and to let you know how much of an inspiration your post from sept. 12 as well as this one have been. a few years after being diagnosed with a chronic illness, i was no longer able to continue working creatively in the same capacity i once was. i have been going through a rough time for about the past year trying to figure out how i can continue to work creatively with my limitations, and your words just really had an impact on me. although things have turned out very differently than i had imagined, i am so lucky and blessed to be able to work from home now on the things that i absolutely LOVE! that is the gift that until i read your post, i hadn't really seen yet. i had been so caught up focusing on things that weren't going to work anymore, that i was unable to see that i can still have that creative outlet from the comfort of my home. thank you for writing that post! i hope to have a blog and a little etsy shop up soon, but until then i will continue to enjoy this wonderful community i have stumbled upon through your blog. your pictures are just lovely. much like each of you, i love surrounding myself with lovely things (pink & aqua especially. . .)it's just happy and makes you smile!

My experience discovering blogs and Etsy came around the same time as yours--sometime back in March. It has changed me! I feel so connected to people I have never even met and enjoy looking at and sometimes purchasing peoples' art or vintage finds on Etsy. I too was in some kind of funk (depression) and could see no light at the end of the tunnel. I'm not yet where you are, doing what you love, but now I can see a glimmer of light and feel hopeful. Thanks for sharing your experience!
