What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 173: International Women’s Day

14 Comments

I’ve looked at this tiny, perfect painting by Tali of TushTush for so long, I had to check my past posts to confirm that I hadn’t already written about her work. It’s definitely on my to do list now!

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.

Dames, amirite?

I thought that this week in honor of International Women’s Day, rather than playing the Etsy Bogeyman, I’d instead celebrate some of the awesome women of Etsy who are so deserving of our support. These are just a few of my favorite Etsy sellers. Some, I have profiled previously, some I have made purchases from, some I have  only admired from afar, but all are talented and deserve some love!

HeatherAnnOrlando‘s paintings are charming and personable, and need to be seen!
