Forgot to mention earlier in my rambling post--Subu is having a "Crafty Giveaway" on her site, and I donated a pair of earrings for it (see photo).
Go check it out at: http://suburose.wordpress.com/2007/11/26/crafty-giveaway-13/
All you have to do is visit my Etsy shop and leave a comment on her blog, letting her know which item you like best. She'll then have a drawing, and the winner receives a pair of Winter Lemons earrings!
In case you need to know more about Subu, she's a seller on Etsy who specializes in paper goods (books and notepads, in many cases made from recycled materials) and ceramics. Her stuff is gorgeous, and my absolute favorite is her Starry Night Stoneware Bowl.
So, get on over to her blog and give her some traffic! You have until midnight 11/29. She's also running another fun contest where you try and think of a holiday slogan for her shop. How fun! Plus, she's a fellow Pennsylvanian, so what's not to like?
