Ridiculously Cute

I want someone I know to have a baby right now, just so I can buy these:

These handmade baby booties are crocheted with natural, 100% Merino wool yarn, and felted by PrettyLittle. Click at your own risk -- everything in this shop is too cute for words.

Your Thoughts, Please

So I've noticed that a number of sellers on Etsy use their avatar as a way to further advertise their wares. I personally like seeing who people are, but maybe that's not so important anymore in our brave new digital age.

I made this one the other day. What do you think? Are there other images in my shop that would make for a better icon?

It Takes Two , Baby


I've always appreciated the power of a dynamic duo. There's something about the act of coupling, of pairing, of two distinct entities coming together to create something wholly unique from its origins, yet clearly indebted, that's infinitely compelling.

Kinda like love.

Anywho, that's how I've always imagined my wedding and marriage: a coming together of two distinct people, lives, and lessons, to form something new, something that hadn't existed before between the two of us. Just me and you, as the classic Marvin Gaye-Tammi Terrel song goes.

The following selections of pairs and "twos" from {NewNew} artisans are a little unorthodox at first glance, but why not make your wedding your own?

It takes two.
