The Etsy Mini

My urge to create only grows when I cruise the creations of fellow Etsy-ites. There are some very talented people out there. The folks at Etsy tweeted about this fun widget above called an Etsy Mini. You can display either your own creations that are on your Etsy site or your favorite creations of others at Etsy. Since I am not quite there in the creation department, I'll stay happily in the appreciation department for a little bit longer.

thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. i love your blog. it's beautifully designed. it was nice to read about ersa. my jake has cerebral palsy, cortical visual impairment and mental delays. he just turned 12 this past november. it's crazy how fast the time goes. are you from the northeast? i was born in ct and bread in new york state. oh, and internet use would be one of my greatest vices too (unfortunately spider solitaire is another - at least you're probably looking at useful stuff). i remember when i was pregnant and couldn't fast, i would give up the computer as a sign of sacrifice. it's probably time for me to consider pulling the plug again soon - even if i missed lent.

since i'm currently the primary chorister, does your primary ever teach the kids songs in ASL? we always have our primary do one song for the program in ASL. i've found when you are doing ASL, it's easier to have one child or a family sing the song while everyone else signs. Sign Exact English can be song while signing. anyhoo, the church always puts out a sign video of the program songs, but i actually think that they might even be on the website now. (the hymns are at least - and i think they've been working on the children's songs). the kids love learning sign language, and i've noticed that for some kids remember the signs easier than the words. since ASL really translates the meaning of the phrase, i've had good experiences simplifying the phrases in songs and talking about what the message of the song truly is. it's a win win situation for all around. when i first moved into this ward 7 years ago, i suggested to the chorister that learning a song in sign language was something everyone could do to benefit jake. just giving my two cents.

Thank you for stopping by the blog. I'm so glad to hear from you. Yes, time goes by fast. Esra turns three next week!

I am so touched by your fantastic idea with signing. I love it...I wonder if Esra would be even more interested in signing if she saw her peers doing it?

So, should we suggest to our hubby's that we would get more blessings if they made a burnt offering of their Blackberrys?
