That time when I was in a book



I can’t believe that it has taken me this long to mention it, but a book recently came out by Jason Malinak called Etsy-preneurship: Everything You Need to Know to Turn Your Handmade Hobby into a Thriving Business. It’s a really good read, packed with tons of info on everything from bookkeeping and legal stuff to marketing and Etsy tips and tricks. As it happens, I am actually in this book as well (pages 159-160) as a resource for top Etsy sellers. Of course, I was honored to be included in such a useful book for creatives. I’ve been reading through it in my free time and finally finished up this weekend, with the help of a cheese danish from my favorite bakery. Yum!

I know it might sound a bit odd, but where did you buy the cup featured in these pictures?

It doesn’t sound odd at all Eve…I fully expected that someone would ask that. I love that little mug. It’s from Marimekko. I don’t think they have that exact mug online anymore (I bought mine from a local shop about a year ago), but they have other cool ones. Worth taking a look.
