My Etsy Wife

Life on Etsy has been great.  Sure it's had it's fair share of ups and downs.  I've had my endless days of knitting, posting, and checking my shop stats.  I've experienced the thrill of getting my first sale and the excitement of each and every sale after that.  Though this whole thing has been great I couldn't help but feel that something was missing.  What I really needed was someone to do the sales dance with.  It gets kind of lonely being a seller on Etsy.  I needed someone who could support me through the good times and the bad.  Someone to offer advice and who could help spread the word about all the new developments with my shop.  Of course, I would be there to offer the same support for them.  Sure there's always my husband but he doesn't really know the thrill that comes with getting another sale.  What I really needed was an Etsy wife :)

I found her a few weeks ago through a team dedicated to just such unique partnerships.  I saw a post by her and checked out her shop and I must say I fell in love with it.  She has unique earrings and bracelets and just a really cool vibe to her shop.  So we got hitched and it's been a great partnership so far.

Here is what she has to say about herself and her shop-

"I make earrings, bracelets, and accessories. My Phamster collection is inspired by my cousins,our shared love of hamsters and the color pink.

I LOVE to travel and I have seen so many pretty places around the world. I draw inspiration for my earrings and knits from places, colors and impression of places I have been so that my buyer can bring a piece of the world home or wear it.

Exotic earrings, Beaded earrings, glass earrings,bracelets and more! All items are inspired, designed and made with the world as a canvas. Always original, never mass produced. All items are made by hand with love, care and a twinkle in the eye. If you love to be the center of attention, this is the place for you. No two pieces are alike and only a few of each item are made. You will never run in to someone wearing your exact earrings! Say goodbye to mass produced cuteness and allow yourself to become INTERTWYNED." 
I hope you will check out her shop.  I must say I am quite partial to her post earrings.  They are so unique and fun.  So there you have it - I now have both a husband and a wife.  Only in the world of Etsy would such a thing come with so little judgement.  I have a feeling we will be doing the sales dance together for quite some time to come.
