Front Page - Thanks to the Storque!

So, for those of you who aren't Etsy-people (Etsiers? Etsians? Etsites? Something like that...), a little explanation is in order. The Storque is Etsy's online Newletter for sellers, buyers, browsers, anyone who just wants to keep up a little bit with the goings-on in the Etsy World.

They have a series of Spotlight articles - including the recent Gift Ideas: Teacher Teacher. And my lemongrass green tencel lace scarf is one of the featured gift ideas! Neato! Always tickled to be noticed by the PTBs (PTBs = Powers That Be for you non-Buffy fans out there).

And to make it even more neato, it made the front page! Let's see if I can manage to get my screencap here for you (saved it in a little different way this time, so we'll see...)

Itty bitty. LOL. But there it is! :) It's this scarf/sash, in case you're interested:

It's the sister to the green lace scarf that sold in about two seconds flat. (It's cousin, a similar one but in solid adobe also set a speed record - for me - for selling!) And it's also part of the series that I developed based on my design that was published in Handwoven.

Hmm. Maybe this is the figurative kick in the rear that will get me going/motivated again. It's getting really hard to make myself go in to the studio on weekends, which are usually my productive time! And this is theoretically the time of year when I should be stocking up for fall... Not happening so far, but that's ok, it's nice to be selling still when I thought I'd be well into my summer slowdown by now.

Anybody else have motivation problems when the weather gets nice?

Congrats on being featured in the Storque!

I have a hard time pulling myself away from the garden ... when I ought to be inside working on my knitting projects. It's so hard finding the right balance.

Kristin, congratulations on the well deserved recognition. Your work is lovely.
Wish I had a garden gene. My flower beds look like hell. I'd rather be spinning, although I do take my wheel outside.

Thanks guys. LOL, Maple, I'm with you. My Mum definitely has the garden gene (her garden is gorgeous) but it absolutely skipped me. I'd soooo rather be weaving or biking or surfing or something rather than digging out weeds...
