Since opening a shop of my own, I've been spending more time on Etsy. And I've come to notice my enthusiasm for Nice Things being renewed. Not only have I wanted to buy things (spoiler: mint green leather shoes are soon to be sported), but I've wanted to make (more) things, and to properly fix the things I have, and to invent new designs, and to perfect my techniques.

I had no idea so many people were so skilled, that so many beautiful objects existed.
