it's called Pocket Shop and you can see mine on the right sidebar of this page [under Please visit]. the widget provides access to a lot of of your etsy shop information, is super easy to set up and install, and there are seven different layouts available.

and this great tool is provided by the always helpful craft cult folks. if you have an etsy shop, you should check it out!

isn't this wonderful? it reminds me so much of when my boys were younger and always outside playing baseball...

this piece was created by mummysam, whose work i just stumbled upon. i love her sewn and fabric art as well as her new fabric line @ Robert Kaufman. there really is so much more, so i would suggest taking a peek if you're not already familiar with her work!

Mara Skujeniece is a ceramic genius!

She used these spools for inspiration

and i cannot tell you how badly i want this!
