Escape From Etsy!

Just popping in to express how happy I am that I'm not an Etsian any longer.
My holiday sales were great and I completely slacked off.  My new venue makes everything ridiculously simple.

Now it's very clear (talkin' 'bout circles here), that Etsy is trying to morph into some kind of social commerce / networking site, and not a professional venue to sell your handmade, vintage, supplies.  It's so lame and sad.

Anyway, I rarely even think about Etsy or my time there anymore.  I've saved hundreds of dollars since I left.  Amazing how much I spent on listing and relisting fees while I was there... Now I can chill out and just focus on life again.  And no more crazy-making weird & pointless changes to worry about either.  Phew.

I hope you are all well and having happy holidays, I love you all.
