Have you discovered Etsy yet?

I am absolutely in love with this website. I knew my addiction had started to take hold last night when I was shopping for Christmas cards. I thought, "this is something that would be great handmade," and immediately put down my purchase and went home to look. Haven't found our cards yet but I am on the hunt!

Along with Etsy I'm a big fan of Imagekind for prints. Artist Rising also does prints and sells originals as well, but I am still looking around to get a better idea of the site. Along with these sites are a number of climbers (new ones yet to take hold) and old ones that probably need revamped (Yessy.com, I'm thinking of you). Zatista.com has great potential but I think the commission is a bit high for an online site (18%!).

After rattling off these names quickly I think this might be fodder for a links gadget and maybe a more involved post than my 5 minute morning spit out. Hmmm....

Hi Robin! I really like the color matching tool. You select from your painting rather than typing a color. Let me know how you like it!
