Etsy Euro Seller: Moon Through Fog

I recently discovered Moon Through Fog , a Croatian artist. I actually discovered her blog on We Love Indie, and then discovered that she is a crafter/artist living in Europe. She produces really lovely water colors (like the one above) as well as some very nice photographs. She also has a blog where, among other things, you can access her Flickr profile and  find some of the slice of life images she captures of her hometown, Zagreb. She's good - she's been featured in Etsy a lot.

I could make a tacky plug here about printable gift labels and cards to go with the gift one would wrap with this paper, but I'll...

Red Bridge Surprise Visit

  Something really neat happened today. I met another Etsy seller for the first time. Tyshawn from Red Bridge Studios contacted me via 'convo' on Etsy. Tyshawn is a silk screen artists and makes really cute pillows, tea towels, zipper purses  and tote bags check out her store here. She sent me a short note letting me know that she was traveling through Germany and was trying to meet with other Etsy sellers. I took it as a small sign from the universe that I should keep on following the handmade/entreprenurial path. We met and went to Munich 72 just across the Isar. We had a nice chat over Apfelmuss Kuchen (applesauce cake) about everything from Germany to Etsy to the virtues...
