ode to etsy - part 1

I love Etsy. The way a stressed-out maniac loves his happy place. The way a gal on a bad date loves a margarita. The way my cats will one day love killing me in my sleep. You get the idea.

For those not yet in the know, Etsy is a website where folks can buy and sell mostly handmade items. Think a cooler version of Ebay, and without the pesky auctions.

I never cease to be impressed by the artistry of the sellers I come across, and my wish list just keeps getting bigger and BIGGER! So, I've decided to post some occational shout-outs to the wonderful things I've discovered while feeding my web obsession.

Today's installment covers Art & Prints. I highly encourage clicking the links below to see more work by each artist. Some people who win the lottery might buy a fancy car. I'd buy a Honda and decorate the inside with these prints.
