I’m on a craft kick. In times of distress, I find myself drawn to things like yarn and leftover paint supplies; iron-on letters and calligraphy ink. I usually end up still stressed and with less money, but at least I have something to show for it.

Last week I told you about
Ravelry, a site which has consumed what little free time I have. But no regrets—there are sweaters and hats in the making.

All this crafting has inevitably drawn me toward
Etsy. I was sure we had blogged about it in the past but, lo and behold, it was nowhere to be found in our search engine. It’s almost sacrilegious, not sharing such a divine site with our readers like that.

So let me introduce you. Dear readers, Etsy. Etsy, dear readers. Etsy is a place where you can buy and sell handmade things. Dear readers are people we really, really like.

You might get to know each other by buying me this hand-drawn and screenprinted
“Tulips” pillow.

Or maybe you want to shop around
local goods.

You can also search for things by
color. (You really can’t tell how cool this feature is without playing with it.)

There are also
Editors’ Picks

Gift Guides … and Timelines … it goes on.

Not only does it allow you to support local/independent art, but you also get cool stuff out of it … and you will potentially be inspired to make things.

Etsy, dear readers, consider yourself introduced. Please play and unite.
