Thanks to nea, I grew a widget…

January 6th, 2009

Back in November, when I was still very new to etsy, I met a great fellow seller in the virtual labs — her name is Janick, and she has two shops: neawear and neablossoms. Shortly after we met, she very kindly featured me in her blog. When I started up this puppy a month later, I always knew that I’d love to return the favour at one point.

So voilà! Fellow Canuck and graphic designer, she recently turned her full-time efforts to her handmade endeavours — now, that’s chutzpah!! Lovely lovely jewelry and wall wear:

Mustache Necklace

Verdi Necklace

Heart Me Earrings

I’m always astounded and grateful to think that people — with hard work, a dash of talent and lots of planning — can make (at least part of) their livelihood from stuff they love to do. And obviously, as this is now her day job, Janick is a case in point. A very helpful and supportive one at that!

For those of you who have been watching closely, I have a new fancy schmancy animated gif on the right sidebar now… I had NO idea how to do this, but when I messaged Janick to ask, she so kindly pointed me in the right direction. It’s called a ‘widget’. Sure!

Many thanks for the encouraging words, nea — and here’s to a healthy, happy and creative 2009! Big kudos for following and carrying out your dream :)
