heart warmers

just one more row Chasing Fire Studio was mentioned on the “Just One More Row” podcast! Dana and Brittany are fibre artists in Tennessee that discuss everything to do with knit, crochet, spinning and everything that fills our lives in between. Just One More Row -Episode 53 (the Big Mention is at 49:43 or so. I was so excited that I noted the time so I could listen to it again and again!) It’s pretty heart warming to hear positive words from these great ladies. —- ETSY I host my online shop in a community called Etsy. It is a collection of handmade, vintage and suppliers online. Not only do I sell, I spend so much time browsing and buying too. I’m a huge fan of the Discovery television show Mythbusters. The stars, Jamie and Adam, are amazing makers and scientists in their own rights. I love to watch science + making + art because all three of these are also passions in my own life. When I found out today that Adam Savage is a regular customer at Etsy? (swoon)  Adam talks about the Etsy community, the artistry, the customer service and the personal touch of hand made items. Being an artisan on Etsy is wonderful and having Adam mention us with such high regard is my second heart warming moment of the day. I can’t wait for the day he wants ceramic buttons. The article to go with the video is here.
