Yesterday Etsy offered a great party in Berlin to celebrate the opening of its first international office!
Two members of EtsyItaliaTeam, Gasometri, attended the inauguration night, bringing with them a stack of postcards to introduce our Team.
Not only do these cards have a stunning design showing Italy, they also include a measures converter and – above all – the chance to get a 10% discount in many EtsyItaliaTeam shops!
Curious about how and where getting the discount?
If you are lucky enough to have one of these cards, you will find a promo code on their back side.
You can use that code in all the Etsy shops listed here within three months from today.
You can contact the seller before buying or write the code at the check out.
My shop takes part in this promotion, so don’t forget to add your promo code: I will give you a 10% refund through PayPal!
It all started when some weeks ago my sister bought some artficial flowers in a chinese store.
They looked wonderful and as I saw them I decided to insert them in a yarn.
I never carded and handspun a yarn in less time than I did for Minnie: I had it so clear in my mind, that making it was a breeze!!!
Even its title came out effortless: Minnie is my sister’s nickname.
Minnie has been a very lucky yarn. It was nominated in the Etsy Voter, ending in third position, and it sold out in a few hours.
I had had so much fun handspinning it, that I felt the need to spin something similar.
An so, Bouganvillea appeared in my Etsy Shop.
It made Etsy Front Page and sold out too.
Then, as it was time to prepare something for the EtsyItaliaTeam Challenge, whose theme was Spring, I decided to give my polyester flower a last chance to show off. I didn’t want to repeat the previous yarns, so I opted for something unusual.
To me, Spring has three dominant colors: pinks and fuchsias of peach blossoms, the bright orange of a sunny day and…the grey of clouds and sudden storms so typical during spingtime.
I handpainted a soft superfine merino roving and then spun it into a nice and fluffy spiral yarn, adding a lot of beaded flowers as an accent.
The result is shown in these pics.
Let’s face it: it’s my Flower Power time!
