Who's got stuff for the update?

Meanwhile, I'm on the lookout for Dreamwidth users who have Etsy shops -- it doesn't matter what you sell, as long as it's handcrafted of some sort. I'd like to put together a showcase of DW users' creativity -- it's really easy for us to show off writers (of both fiction and nonfiction) on DW, since the tools we have for sharing and promoting writing are fairly well developed, but [staff profile] mark and I always wanted DW to be a place to showcase all kinds of creativity, from writing to craft to photography to just plain chronicling your life, and I'd really like to start doing some work to promote the non-written forms of creative work our users get up to.

([personal profile] sarah and I are faultlesspajama, at the moment containing entirely jewelry. I've been looking for good beads to make Dreamwidth earrings -- alas, still haven't found anything!)

As the awesome [personal profile] phi mentioned, I run an etsy shop at purpleshiny.etsy.com. I make metalwork jewelry, often with a geeky and/or steampunk twist. (My shop's a bit on the stale side just now, since I'm getting ready for a show in October, but the things there are still a good sample of what I do).

I like using DW for babbling about what I do, and my journal's recently been an even mix of shop talk and personal life updates (to the extent that those are separable things!) I especially appreciate the inline cut tags, so I can put lots of photos behind cuts and still expect that it'll be easy for people to look at them.
