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?
