EtsyRain *hearts* Swimmy!

Not too long ago, Rokali put out a call for Etsy members to send him fish. Not just any fish, of course, but orange fish for a large diorama to be constructed in the Etsy Labs in New York. Well, EtsyRain has responded. :) Below is a sampling of the cute fish that some of our members have come up with.

Of course, none of these fish are for sale in our respective Etsy shops. But if you like what you see, you may find something similar in the shops! :)

Below are the EtsyRAIN members who donated their talents and goods for the February sampler. And if you received a Sampler and want to check out the rest our talents have to offer, visit the links.

Happy belated birthday to KC!

My greatest apologies to KC, who had a birthday last week that totally slipped my mind. KC has two Etsy shops: World of Whimm and On a Whimm. World of Whimm is all about adorable costumes, fun interactive toys, and, of course, the crowns. What started out as crowns for kids have now become crowns for kids and adults. On a Whimm is for other things that KC has made, primarily out of repurposed materials and fabric from her scrap pile.

I absolutely love all of KC's crowns (and just can't decide if I'd rather have mine in black or purple), but my favorite photo of one of her crowns is the one with this post. Absolutely elegant!
