Most of my reading is done at night, which doesn't work very well for anything in which I am trying to learn something. So, I'm ashamed to say it's taken me since May to finish Kari Chapin's The Handmade Marketplace. Well goodness, don't take after me. If you haven't already done so, march yourself over to your nearest bookstore (or her link above) and get this book. I had the pleasure of hearing her talk at Circa Gallery, and she's a very funny lady. She brings lots of crafty wisdom into her book, with tips and tidbits from some very successful women. If you've ever thought about trying to sell your handmade lovelies, or want to increase sales in your etsy shop, I'd highly recommend it. As an aside, I had not been to her blog lately, and was surprised to see myself in several pictures. And what I read there made me research geocaching. Gosh, that sounds like fun! Almost makes me want to get a GPS unit. I received my first international order last night! Go here to enter my soap giveaway.
