TeamTACI have two pieces of Etsy news to share with you all, and I can’t decide which I’m more excited about. I’ll ramble on, and then you can come to your own conclusions about my level of enthusiasm. :)

First, I’m happy to announce that I’m co-founding a Tacoma-area Etsy street team! I’m partnering with Jeananne of ArtWhims and we’ve dubbed ourselves Team T.A.C. which stands for Tahoma Artisan Community. Our hope is to build a network of South Sound sellers, linked in a common desire to promote our craft, boost sales, and enrich the local community. You can stay in touch with news of the team on our Team T.A.C. blog. So far, there is a small but eager group of Etsians ready to get active in the community, and we’re looking forward to what we can accomplish as a team.

My second piece of news is personally exciting because the topic is near and dear to my heart. herbsFor the past couple of months, I’ve been developing a line of herbal bath teas and herbal hair care rinses using 100% certified organic herbs and essential oils. This project has challenged not only my herbological knowledge but also my creative bent, and I’m looking forward to unveiling these products very soon. Keeping with my desire to live simply and naturally, this line will offer therapeutic herbal benefits for every mood and hair type. Stay tuned right here to the blog, and I’ll be announcing the release date soon!
