Repost: The Etsomnia™ Origin Story
*(Title stolen from the My Favorite Murder podcast.)
Through an outraged (but in-the-know) reader’s comments, I discovered today that a post I wrote in July of 2021 was inaccurate. It would seem that Hikari Design sells knockoffs, not original work as their website led me to believe. Here’s the updated post.
Happy New Year!
Pardon My Dust
As some of you may have noticed, a couple of rough draft posts appeared (then disappeared) on the blog this week. I am on the struggle bus, and I apologize that things are getting away from me.
I will endeavor to do better. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the occasional peek behind the scenes…

Creative Juice #220
I’m so thrilled! Fellow blogger (and virtual friend) Andrea Huelsenbeck of ARHtistic License did an entire post about My One Beautiful Thing! If you don’t already follow her, I strongly recommend you go check her out. Like me, she is interested in all things creative. and her Creative Juice Friday posts include loads of wonderful links. Thank you, Andrea, for the feature!
One of my favorite blogs, which I visit almost every day, is MyOBT, which stands for “one beautiful thing.” Donna’s mission is to post one beautiful thing every day, and she succeeds, although sometimes the post might be more funny than beautiful. (But I always appreciate a laugh—don’t you?) If you follow Creative Juice every Friday, you know it almost always contains a post from MyOBT. I try not to post more than one article from any one blog on a single Friday, but in Donna’s case I sometimes have to make an exception, because her output of beauty is just so vast and I want to share it all. In fact, if you love her posts, too, you should follow her blog yourself so you don’t miss a single one. If you need more convincing, today’s CJ features a dozen wonderful posts from MyOBT.

Etsomnia™ is 250!
Etsom·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.Continue reading
I Forgot My Anniversary!
It is 11:27 PM, and I just realized today marks 5 years of My One Beautiful Thing*! Nuts! I would have liked to do something special. Oh well.
5 years without missing a day. That’s something to be proud of!
Yay, me! Yay, you! Yay, us!
*And 7 years since I quit smoking!
