Upon my recent relocation to Salem, MA, I was discovered by Linda, a blogger forScoutieGirl in her Zoomed Local Blog post on Salem, MA Etsy artisans. She featured one of my Handmade Obi Belts (pictured above), which is made from an antique Japanese Kimono Obi. This one is reversible and available at yazberryfashion.etsy.com.
"scoutie girl is the blog with a penchant for the passionately handmade. we feature original design - from both emerging and established crafters - to enrich your life. for more on sg, read the dirt." (Taken from www.scoutiegirl.com on 11/2/09)
I recently learned about ScoutieGirl's blog myself, as it is a favorite source for all things awesome and hand made on Etsy's Twitter account. I Highly recommend you track down both @etsy on Twitter.com and @scoutiegirlblog on Twitter, for interesting and insightful posts on handmade goodies and fascinating artisans.
While you're there, look for @yazberryfashion to keep up to date on what I'm working on and up to!
Also, blogger Linda, is an artisan herself, she has an etsy store, alamodestuff.etsy.com where she sells quirky switchplates and purses, wallets and pillows made from seatbelts! Be sure to check out her store and her blog www.alamodestuffblog.com!
A thank you goes out to my Model, Naomi!
