Friday Five-er, Four: Etsy Friends!

You may have noticed the sudden untangling of my blog. Perhaps, if you are an astute observer, you noticed me gaining a bloggy partner at the same time-- Sygnet Creations? No? Yes?

Well, Sygnet's the one who did the actual blog untangling. She did this because she is brilliant, and she rocks-- look at these aprons, from her shop Sygnet Creations:

And she did this because she's my friend-- My Etsy friend! Yes, I've joined another team, maybe the tightest, most talkative bunch of all the open chatty Etsy teams! Etsy Friends!
We have a blog:

And a forum thread:

And not a lot of members, yet! Which means I....still can't fit all the team awesomeness in four listings. But watch me try!

Sosoresey is so, SO cool. I want this bowl, which was once a plain, flat pillowcase:

Of course I want that't have pointed it out. Hey, look! You can get your very own set of bowls, too!

Genius often lies in finding the simple, often obvious answers that other people somehow fail to see. So when this made me slap my forehead hard enough to bruise and shout "Why didn't I think of that?!?" I knew Devancarol was a closet genius.

Plus, look what she does with scrabble boards! Mine just sit there and mock me with their missing tiles.

Zappyturtle takes eco craft and turns it into an art. Can you believe these come from a plastic bottle?

And how are the fish staying on the purse? I'm not even asking about the gravel!

Last and not least, Mvincent at Mannie's Mandibles has taste for dramatic lighting and minimal descriptions. Good for you, Mannie! Fight the power of the prose! I have already surrendered, as those who know me can attest. But look at what an artist who doesn't spend days chatting can do:

And yes, it's four this week folks, because I have a fair to get ready for tomorrow and blogger is crawling like a crawling thing that crawls. Pics and prattle Monday!
