Wonderful Warm Earth Tones on Etsy

I was able to snag a treasury on Etsy last night and I thought I'd share it here as well! I'm a huge fan of earth tones, especially this time of year.

In other news, I think I've secured a new model for my knitwear! I'm very excited :) Up until now I've relied on convincing my friends to pose for me and I run into obstacles when they're either not available, or uncomfortable doing it. Either way I don't want to be pushy and overstep my bounds with the people I care about. The result is that I'm sitting on about a dozen new items with no way to get them up in my Etsy shop, at precisely the time of year when they need to be in there! I finally took the advice of my brilliant boyfriend and placed an ad on Craigslist yesterday looking for local models. I received about 10-15 emails over the course of the day! I felt a little bit like Tyra Banks with these girls sending me head shots and resumes - it was a little weird but very exciting. I contacted one of the first people who responded to my ad and she seems really cool. She's really excited about helping out a local designer, and she's enthusiastic about fashion so she's going to bring a car full of clothes to play with for the shoot. Nevermind that she's gorgeous! There's also another girl that I'm going to meet with for the next batch of stuff that I have ready. In my experience it's good to not put all your eggs in one basket, especially since I really don't want to be a pain in the butt for these girls. Anyway, I'm getting really excited about filling up my shop now. I should have some photos to share from our session tomorrow. Wish me luck!
