What's the reason for a jumble of nerves? Well, the usual St. Patrick's Day performances as required being an Irish dancer. This would seem like old hat, but last year I avoided the public displays of dancing (aside from competitions and minor performances) by escaping off to Ireland for St. Patrick's Day. Not too shabby right? This year, I didn't have that excuse so I'm performing in a few numbers with my dance school. It's not the usual competition numbers and I've only been doing them for a couple of weeks so I'm just trying to remember the jumble of steps going on in my head. I do want to know why three steps in one dance I'm doing all start with the same sequence? Not that I don't like the steps but it just adds to the nerves! Anyways, I'll just keep practicing tonight when I'm not... prepping for the big presentation that I have at work first thing tomorrow morning! What?! Yes. I'm a bundle of nerves.
So, since I'm stalling a bit but can't focus on a particular crafty writing topic, how about I show you some of my favorite finds on Etsy? I found some things on the trip to Seattle, and in general through Etsy's addictive treasury, so here are a few of my favorite finds.
Vintage inspired jewelry from Lauren Blythe Designs. I love this ring and I picked one up in green. I also had to have her Nautical Necklace.
When I was in Seattle I saw a shop that had the cutest little earrings!
The Bumbling Bird sells them on Etsy for a ridiculously low $12. Even cuter is their 'baker' necklace with a little muffin tin and whisk. Love! I've added it to my wishlist.
So hopefully your St. Patrick's Day plans are a little more light-hearted! What exciting things do you have planned? And what are your favorite shops to browse on Etsy?
