    Michael Ann your little etsy shop is so stinkin adorable. I remember when you made your first wrist one at craft night, and it was so cute! Your little squares are my favorite though, and your personalization on the back is awesome, I feel like you could rock them with that being the top and make yourself a household brand/thing like Martha Stewart only cooler cause your YOU! Haha I can't wait to get back to Portland and get to crafting with you again.

    And CONGRATULATIONS on your first sale :D

    PS my favorite is the blue chambray and gingham pillow pin cushion
