Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.
What is with so many Etsy seller’s obsession with sticking things to other things? Whether it’s dresses or art or hats or clipboards, these makers can’t seem to keep themselves from gluing, sewing, tying, or otherwise attaching everything to everything else. Sure sometimes it works, but that is the exception, not the rule. WARNING: this one’s going to sting a bit.
