About

consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative. - oscar wilde

I realize that in many (if not most) endeavors, consistency is a good thing. But it's not the only way to do it.

I started by selling my handmade soap. But frankly, I believe there are more soap makers in this world than necessary. :)
I decided to leave them to it and to begin selling other things I've created.

I design and make books, linens, some soap, miniature book jewelry and garlic bulb necklaces.

I've been dabbling in botanical dyes on linen. The colors are more subtle, but so beautiful.

I hope in the near future to offer some embroidery and cross stitch work.

    At the moment, I am learning to embroider. It's surprisingly enjoyable. I like to sketch, make artisan bread & soap. I am currently studying bookbinding. I enjoy cooking and baking. I love paper and it's many textures.

sandystc sells books, mini book jewelry, linens, some embroidered items and garlic necklaces. I used to sell soap. It's not so weird - my focus has shifted. To be honest, there are more soap makers than there are guitar pickers in Nashville! But mostly I needed something more challenging, artistic and textured to do with my hands. I love books (who doesn't, right?) so I thought I'd finally give in and try bookbinding.

I am a beginner. My books will have cosmetic flaws, missed stitches, slightly off center pasting and things like that. But they are sturdy enough for normal use and since I am a beginner, they will be a little cheaper. :)

I am a proud member of the human race.

How to register @etsy: http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_registering.php

I'm not taking trades now, but if you want to ask, feel free. I won't throw a fit. :)

But when I do, this is how I do it:
--- Trades? Yes! ---
Everything in my shop is up for trade. So if there is no "team trade on" tag, it just means I missed that item.
Some of my fave things to trade for: pottery, handmade paper, commercial paper, candles, jewelry, leather, fabric, notebooks/journals, vintage. But! That's not all, so feel free to ask. I pretty much like everything. :)
Trades are on the "up and up". That means you 'buy' something from my shop at full price and I 'buy' something from yours. Just choose 'other' for payment method. I do not want to circumvent etsy fees. Plus we get to leave feedback that way and are protected in case someone doesn't receive their trade item.

I trade even up, including shipping costs.
