Thank you etsy

Yay! I am this week's Quit Your Day Job Interview feature thingy majig on etsy.  I can't tell you how humbled, honored and excited I am to have had this opportunity.  Check that one off of my bucket list! ;)

Yep. It's totally always this neat and organized. Just a short week and a half ago, my world was rocked by being asked to do this interview.  I of course dropped every other project and everything else that I was doing in order to make my studio look totally awesome and unrealistic.  When reading most of those interviews on etsy I always was so envious by how neat and organized their studios were.  Now I'm SURE that they all had to have done what I did. Or maybe not. Maybe it's not normal that I over ran the rest of my apartment with the the stuff I usually keep in my studio in the hall and my bedroom. I wanted it to look really really nice for the 3-5 photos she asked me to take.  What? I took hundreds and pondered over which to use for days? Who said that?

Anyway, I had so much fun and am still pinching myself :)

Here are a few of the photos I loved but didn't use

these are my little helpers.

panoramic view!

all of the lovely local Vermont wool that I can't wait to make into neck warmers! 
last but not least... this is my ''I just had an etsy sale face!" 

Thanks so much for reading my interview and now it's time for me to get back to work on things for the holidays! Speaking of, I have been having so much fun doing applique! After I ran out of tea towels, moleskines and all of my old hoodies, I was thinking of buying some nice hoodies or maybe thrifting some for the holidays but would love some input on what you think? Here is a photo of what some may look like: 
I'd love some input!
