Over the weekend, I got a little package in the mail from Nguyen Le of Knit Knit, another Etsy seller. She makes beautiful needle felted and embroidered jewelry along with other whimsically crafted pieces. You can tell she adds love into everything she makes.
Well, we did an art trade: her lovely hand embroidered leaf necklace for 2 of my smaller illustrated prints. I've done similar trading with other vendors at craft fairs, but this was my first time trading with an Etsy seller whom I've only met online. It was so exciting to get a package in the mail all the way from Brooklyn! It was a bit like Christmas! The necklace is perfect! It's very elegant, but with a definite handmade feel to it.
Have you traded with an Etsy seller before? I'm up for another trade, so let me know if you're interested :) And please check out Knit Knit's charming little shop on Etsy!
