Selling on Etsy

I think everyone has their time selling things on Etsy. My time was summer 2019. One great piece of advice my brother gave me was, don’t think, just start. Come to think of it, he’s amazing. He’s very clever, hard working, and I really look up to him. He is also very modest. So I…

Abstract Faces

I don’t know about you, but I am feeling 22! My brother hates how I sang this all day on his birthday, but it is just a right of passage on your 22nd birthday. This embroidery actually started off as a quick five minute drawing where you could only look at the person and not…

Data and Pattern
