Yes, I know. WHAT?? Nicole, you have been an Etsian for about 40 days now and have not purchased anything? How is that possible?
Well today was the day that I purchased my first item from Etsy. I had to save up enough money and have some to spare to make a few other purchases from my favorites (as seen at the very bottom of my blog page). I think I put about 20 new items on my favorites because I went through about 1/2 of the treasuries to look for things I wanted to buy. I also discovered that my Rainbow Crayons and the Mommy and Baby Roo were featured in three Treasuries! Yay.
Back to my purchase...
So, for the last month or so typing and reading in the forums, I have come across Etsian TimothyAdamDesigns several times. I kept seeing this post over and over about some handmade book... after looking at posting while he was advertising Volumes I and II, I discovered that this was not just some book...
I decided that I really wanted to do this. I sent about 5 million messages to him asking 5 million more questions. He was so kind and helpful in getting me the right answers VERY quickly. I also discovered his blog about the book titled, The Handbook to Handmade Vol. III, where he also advertises links to Etsy shops who have purchased the book.
This book is such a great promotional tool and makes a great coffee table book as well. Now granted, I have yet to see my own physical copy of it, I can tell from his customer service, detailed listing and photos, and previous buyer feedback, that you can not go wrong from a promotional keepsake such as this. He even offers discounted copies of previous Volume extras if you cannot get enough Etsy love from Vol. III.
Now my photos I am choosing may not be the best of listings since I am newer and have not listed my really cool items yet, but I am so excited to get my copy in the mail and plan for being in future editions ahead.
Here are the images I am going to use (one is an alternate)...
Let me know what you think. I need to go work on my blurp for the book now... if you buy a copy, I will autograph my two pages for you as well ;) (Just Kidding).
