My "day" job involves combining images and emotions with words: reporting the local news for television. It involves a constrained sort of creativity and a fair share of sad-face moments.
Etsy is my outlet for the remaining creativity and the antidote to the sad-face stuff.
Not surprisingly, there is a dialogue between words and pictures in my creative imagination. Sometimes it is a phrase that makes me think of a design. I enjoy the juxtaposition of ordinary with ethereal, pretty with macabre, and nursery cute with naughty bits. I'm also a bit of an "old soul" and find myself frequently foraging for pieces of the past.
Before opening a shop on etsy, I spent a year as a compulsive buyer on etsy under the account name "betsyforgetsy."
