Selling our stuff

Mom found this website where artists and craftspeople can sell the things they make, for a nominal fee. Its called Etsy. (http://www.etsy.com/), so we decided to set up a shop where we can sell the things that we make, since we all make different things. I'm selling cards that I make, and I'm going to sell the fruit baby hats that I knit, as well as the purses. Mom's selling cards, and her fancy scarves. Justin's making wooden, birch burl bowls, that he carves, and we're going to sell those too. We're just going to add things as we make them and come up with them. I think it will be fun, and hopefully work well for us. Our shop is at http://thewindfarm.etsy.com/ . Justin's bowls are so beautiful that I wanted to share them on here. He's making some much larger ones too, but they take a long time. :) We went out on our snow machines this winter and gathered the burls, then we've been drying them in the living room.

And I'd just like to say that I did a darn professional job with the pictures too. :) Alicia

Those bowls are awesome! Seriously so amazing. Justin's so talented!
Ben's nose does the same thing as Justins! The cartilage is all on one side, so he can't breathe out of it. What a pain!

You hit the nail on the head with Macarena. Perfect! Unfortunately I can't stop singing it now.
I just showed Ben Justin's bowls & he is in unbelief. He can't believe that he can make those. They're amazing!

The bowls are gorgeous! totally awesome.

And I have to laugh at that alien toy the dog was chewing on. It's from the movie Toy Story - right? Gabe LOVES that movie, and this week when we were in Disneyland he kept talking about "Buzz Lightyear, Woody, and the Green Beans". He called the alien's GREEN BEANS, and he's positive that's what they're called.

So Mya is just getting in her serving of GREEN BEANS :)

Love you guys!
