Thank you for visiting.



I should probably call this post: Shameless Promotion # 1.
Because I did it. Today I became a bona fide member of Etsy with six of my OOAK clutch bags in my own storefront at PatStudio.

The truth is that I became a member of Etsy nearly three years ago and the account just sat dormant while I was focused on work, writing proposals, fundraising, and family matters. But in the first blush of retirement and the time to do work that I really want to do, it is the moment to re-activate that earlier desire.
For a while I thought I'd want to do regional, juried craft shows with my work. But the reality of that is I am not ever going to be a production-type person. I just am never going to make 100 of the same things to create a saleable inventory for shows.
With Etsy, I can build an online presence that allows me to create OOAK items for the pure joy of the doing. I don't need a large inventory as one would with shows. And, there is the opportunity for a far larger audience for the work than would see it at regional craft shows.

Today, I purchased a custom banner and avatar for Etsy to match the banner here on this blog and begin to create an 'identity'.

And this just feels right.
