Rob White is the master!


This week I am featuring the interview with Rob White (Etsy Forums Manager) by Illustrate for the Team Bacon! blog.

For those of you who may not know Rob, he works for Etsy.com as the manager of the forums section. He and his staff keep things running smoothly in the forums. It is a massive job and he does it wonderfully. Ok, here it is...

Why is April soooo busy?????


The last week has been both amazing and busy.
I love all the creativity going on and am thrilled to have a chance to soak it all in. For example, check out this gorgeous cuff by TocadoraLeather!

Toca uses recycled materials to make the bases of her cuffs then adorns them with all kinds of wonderful things. In the one above she has used one of my enameled gears (which by the way, was kinda her idea just so you all know!). Toca invited me to collaborate with her several month ago and we have now become best buds and inspire each other every chance we get!

My personal favorite at the moment is:

but if I linger too long in her shop I will have many many more than would fit on this here little blog of mine!

Ok, folks.... I hope this finds you all healthy and in the sun!
