I spend an awful lot of time on etsy, but sometimes I want to "branch out" a bit. Besides checking out my favorite blogs, I love to check out etsy videos on you tube in my spare time. Check out videos of other etsians as they describe their process and their inspiration. And several how-to videos as well!
