As a follow up to this post, I'm now getting around to announcing (somewhat belatedly) that I was chosen as a vendor for this year's Handmade Arcade in Pittsburgh.
It was totally crazy. And exciting. I met a ton of incredible people, and I'm looking forward to getting this little business of mine off the ground.
If you're interested in seeing what I've been up to, and what I have for sale, visit my etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/FerociousOstrich. I have some pre-made sizes available--and you can place a custom order for a different size, or even your own design.
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Arcade--and for making my day a total blast.
