Etsy shops December 30, 2010

Etsy is one of the best & cutest websites my friends have ever introduced me to (ha!)

I spend such a lot of time browsing the jewelry and clothing sections that I even got my mum looking at the website one time! At last glance, I had about 15 items in my shopping cart.

I don’t think I ever intended buy any of it, but just the idea of claiming something in my electronic basket at check out was enough to keep me satisfied, without actually spending any money.

But still, I have fallen victim to what most Etsy users succumb to: wanting to “open” your own Etsy story.

It’s just so tempting & of course I would want to make jewelry and sell it. My gran taught me a few years ago how to make basic jewelry & I did really start to enjoy it. My designs and ideas got complex at one point and then I just stopped making it all together.

I think it was a combination of my increasingly short attention span and the fact that it’s so expensive to buy beads and clamps. I believe I was 15-years-old at the time and being on a limited budget per week was a lot harder, I think, than surviving on student allowance. But I digress.

I’ll try post some pictures of jewelry I made here tomorrow.

Anyway, I am slowly being lured back into the world of jewelry craft and creation. Maybe it’s something that’ll open a whole slew of hobbies: patchwork seems cool and I used to knit all the time.

What a nana.

But apart from this I think it’s important to get into unique and interesting hobbies. It’s these hobbies that help define who we are, after all. You don’t want to be like the countless other members of society who call shopping a hobby. I just don’t like thinking of that as a hobby as it loses it’s novelty.

If anyone reads this: What do you think about Etsy stores or online shopping in general? I don’t want to make money but to have a reason to make all sort of jewelry would be great.
