Etsy Thoughts

Stencil cutout of Lara & Anna

The Etsy thing has been pretty amazing, I must say. I am so very flattered that so many of you were impressed enough with my Little Kitchen to actually buy the plans I made. I've been asking everyone who bought them to send me a pic of the end result, and as soon as I get them I will certainly post them here. I can't wait to see what people make!

Of course, my own response to this has been, "Ok, what next?" because I am a perpetual neck-craner. Excelsior*, and all that. :) I am going to try out the idea that I originally wanted to work on for Etsy - custom-made stencil portraits in various media. I've made several so far:

and I'm working on another, from one of my current favorite photos. For sale, I would offer people the option of various media and ask them to send me a digital or hard copy photo to work from. What do you think? Workable idea?

*Sorry, a little too much Trollope in my life recently...

Congratulations on your Etsy success! It's great to know that people are willing to put their money where their mouth is, and it is a truly brilliant idea well executed!

So too, I predict, will your stencil idea. Beautiful work.

*** I've lurked on your blog for a while. You post a nice balance of family, craft, and all else. Thank you for your inspiration. :) ***

I would definitely buy one! I can think of a few photos that would look good as a stencil... I would love it on some type of canvas I can hang. I'll keep checking back to see if you go ahead with it!

I've LOVED your Craftster avatar since I first saw your felt alphabet book write-up.

This is a great idea! You'd want to offer some guidelines for people trying to choose an appropriate photo.

This would make a great Christmas present, so hurry up and up list it already.
