Yes, it's finally happened. After enough phone calls from Roughie showing me what she found on Etsy that I could easily duplicate and become a bajillionaire, I've finally decided that hey, maybe there's something to all this Etsy stuff. Sure, I've never actually bought anything from Etsy and I just use it to shamelessly mimic anything I find remotely interesting but other people (mostly Roughie) buy the shit out of this stuff. And my very talented sister Abby has her Etsy store selling her custom jewelry but she actually possesses her own sense of creative talent and doesn't just pull a Napster and steal everyone else's ideas. Check out her store if you haven't already . I'm amazed at her talent every time I look through her things. And to think she accomplishes all that with her glue huffing addiction! What a champ.
But this weekend, I actually saw something that a) I could replicate easily and that b) people seem to be paying a crazy amount of money for and that's NOT completely tapped out (like monogrammed hair bows). So I'm tapping that ass. But I'm not going to reveal just yet what it is because I need to create a few prototypes. I had been thinking of starting this up in the fall with adorable little coats for girls and a few rockin' adult jackets but I think I'm going to get the ball rolling a little sooner. But here's what I need from you all: a name. And I'm not talking about the name you call me behind my back, or even occasionally to my face, and DEFINITELY not something involving placentas. I'd like something that's easy to remember and not too cutesy. Any ideas?
