Blogger o' the month: Roseworks!

Too often, I miss writing up the featured Etsy Blogger. This is a shame, but it generally stems from my not having the slightest idea what to say about them. Many blogs are just beyond my poor frail dial-up capacity to follow regularly, and many crafts are just beyond my comprehension, and so I end up with posts like "Yay, soaps good!" This does no one any favors.

But this month? This month is Roseworks. Roseworks makes jewelry. Sparkly, sparkly jewelry:

Did you catch those last two?
Yes, that's the Heroes symbol, and Link, video game icon of the dawning of the geek age.

Better yet, those first two very pretty in no way geeky necklaces? Are in honor of Firefly, the Best D--- Show to ever get destroyed by Fox network execs. That is some heavy competition, believe you me.

That's right, Roseworks is a geek! Geeeeek! She reads books with mermaids on the cover and watches cancelled science fiction shows and openly admits it!
Since I do these things too, this is obviously the sign of a great, if occasionally melty, mind.

But she does me one better by turning her geekery into shinies. I have not yet found a way to do this. So I stalk her blog, and wait for inspiration. Roseworks is a chatty beast, perhaps less verbose than me on any specific day, but also more reliable. Get some happy geeky bloggage here:

And more Etsy-specific bloggery over hyar:

Go read!

You so make me smile! I had to read the paragraph about me being a geek to my hubby - and I copied it into chat to share with my brother :P

Yay! I gave Roseworks a grin!
It would have been better, I think, if I'd written this back when the blog was updating and I had an audience, but maybe this will be my turning point. Maybe.

TilT, Unique, Tulip- your blogs hate me! Wah! I never get to see the TiLT blog except at work, and Unique, it's hit or miss.And Tulips, all I can download is the background. Whyyyy? Are you all harboring flash-animated music videos or something? Fie.

Anyway. Yeah, the wind necklace is totally Inara! Does that mean the Earth Necklace will be Zoe? Or maybe Mal, to go with his pretty flowered bonnet;)?
