i love the etsy community

i just got a message from someone on etsy.com letting me know that they had featured my tea towels on their blog, project felt. her blog is interesting, and now I have yet another one to add to my "list-of-daily-blogs-to-read-pass-away-my-first-hour-of-work". it just keeps getting bigger. her etsy shop is also very cool, featuring an array of functional yet attractive felt goods. i love these little nesting bowls:

i wish i had more time to read all of the blogs I want to read and create all the posts I really want to post and look back on...i really feel overwhelmed right now with wanting to be creative, but having to have a day job and still being broke all the time. i feel like this 'living paycheck to paycheck' will never end. and then there's the house that needs all of these repairs...man owning a home sucks sometimes...can't I just be a squatter? and then there's the credit card debt. it never ends.
i just want to craft all the time, and meet crafty people and go drink coffee inbetween my main job as a crafter. that's my christmas wish.
on a lighter note (sorry 'bout the downer!)..there are so many things on Etsy that I want to get maddie for christmas that i can't choose. she needs some art for her room so i'm thinking some cool prints. but is a 13 year old going to like the same ones that I think are way cool? here are some things i want to get her: bunny girl, antler girl, recycle bag, animal lover clutch, birch card, letterpress calender, handprinted fabric, woodsy wallet, turntable ipod case(i think she'd really dig this), cool ashleyg print (i liked this for josh), auntycookie fabrics.....just to name a few. and we all know this is stuff that I secretly want..pulled it straight from my etsy favorites!
but she also would really appreciate money donated to a charity, or some other heart-warming, for-a-good-cause gift. that's why we love her!
