The Lord’s Prayer is a classic …

but everyone needs some Dylan in their life.

Oh wow. You have to check out Wordle. I think I’m going to go turn more quotes into word cloud art now. I should probably post something interesting soon … but I’m still twittering away. Oh, and Euro Cup … Euro Cup owns my life right now.


Crafty: Etsy May 26, 2008

I’m constantly searching Etsy for the next best thing. If it can be crafted, you can probably buy it. I’ve bought everything from gorgeous sock yarn and breathtaking handspun to massive glass pendants to magnets of the world. The number of talented artisans out there is absolutely incredible, and it’s nice to have a place where a lot of them have congregated and their goods can be seen. It’s horrible for my wallet, though. 🙂

What brings this up is a recent article from SFGate: Etsy Lets Art Sales Take Wing

It’s just nice to see a place like this get coverage, especially for all of those artists out there whose work deserves all the coverage it can get. Anyway, this was the crafty update of the day, so because I’ve no time for much else in the way of being crafty, it will have to do for now. 🙂
