I love it when I randomly take a look at one of the many lovely shops I’ve “Favorited” on Etsy, and find – always to my surprise, for some reason – new and outstanding product ready for purchase. Say it with me, folks – new product. Ahh, just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it. In a hard consonant kind of way.
Well, this was my experience when I paid a visit to my “Favorite Sellers” page recently, clicked on my old friend Sigmosaics AND SAW THESE:
(I know what you’re saying – but no, those are not the same eggs from Friday’s Fab Finds… they are, in fact, smaller mini eggs, and in summer hues. No I’m not joking, they’re different. Scout’s honor.)
Does breakfast in bed sound like the perfect way to spend your Valentine’s Day? Then ask him to buy you one of these – but make sure he knows that you’d like it filled with food before he presents it to you. Remember, men don’t read minds! (Thank God.)
How about some heart-shaped creations? I’d feel pretty lucky to receive one of these little works of art mid-February…
Oh, and by the way, here are two additional reasons why I have mad love (do the kids still say that?) for Kerrin, the creative force behind Sigmosaics:
1. 10% of the listing price of nearly all the items I’ve displayed above (save for the mini mosaic eggs) will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
And, as if that wasn’t enough…
2. An excerpt from her bio:
“Sigmosaics is how I became known amongst my customers in Portugal coupled with the fact it is also the name of my website … therefore I decided to also use this name for my Etsy shop. My children provided the inspiration for the ‘Sig’ part … it’s their initials!”
I’m a sucker for rolling in your kids’ initials when naming your business. That’s just a certain kind of special, and it’s the kind that I love.
