Etsy Inspried #33 from Florida!!!

Etsy Inspired #32

HOWDY again from good ole Florida!
This week’s Etsy shop is Opalescence!!!!
This crafter creates everything from earrings to homespun yarn!
Okay….my inspiration was a pair of earrings that reminded me of bird perches…
Don’t ask…they just did 🙂
So I inked up my Hero Arts Birdcage stamp and voila…a birdcage card!
Here is my inspiration:

And here is some of her homespun yarn!!!!!

If you’d like to play along just follow these steps:
1. Go to Opalescence and find something inspirational.
2. Create something inspired and take a picture.
3. Post a link to your creation on Ashley’s blog!

Do YOU want to be on the Etsy Inspired Team???

This is really rather bittersweet for me. Lindsay Spencer is stepping down from the team. 😦 I adore Lindsay and her amazing creations. I loved every single minute of working with her but she’s REALLY REALLY busy right now. We’ll miss you so much Lindsay! Thanks for all the hard work!

What does this mean for you? Well, it means that there’s a permanent position now open on the Design Team. Soo…I’ve decided to extend the deadline for the EtsyInspired DT contest. If you complete ALL FOUR EtsyInspired challenges for the month of April by May 1, noon Pacific time, you may choose to be entered for the June Guest Designer Position OR the permanent DT spot. Just let me know (I’ll make a post later asking who did all the challenges.) So, get to work people!”
