Questions about Etsy

I've been thinking up some designs for some summer accessories and I'm still in the planning stages but I've got some rough ideas and I'm thinking of opening an Etsy store. I look on Etsy constantly, but have yet to buy anything off the site, so let me know if you've had any experiences with Etsy (good or bad) and what you're take on how the site functions is. Your opinions are much appreciated.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week.

Wedding Dress

I'm am sooo excited people, I got my wedding dress last week and it is absolutely lovely. I am looking for veils and because my dress is simple, I think I want a mantilla veil. If you haven't seen one of these, just do a quick google search. They are beautiful lace edged veils that are exquisite. It will add just enough decoration and sparkle to my dress.

On the knitting front, I am still working on the second alpaca sox, I thought it would be to hot to finish it soon...but I forgot that I live in Michigan where it snows in April at least once every year. The first sock came out beautiful and I keep getting complements on it, I'm on the foot of the second sock so it should be done soon. I'm contemplating starting a February Lady Sweater..I've never done a sweater before but this seems to be an easy one (check out the designers blog flintknits )

Also, I'm finally getting my degree, Grad School is officially over. I finished my requirements last November but due to some shuffling of paper, I wasn't able to register to graduate until this semester. I am soooo glad to be done, but apparently I'm a perpetual student because I've already started looking at Ph.D programs. The University of Michigan Ann Arbor has a joint program in Political Science and Public Policy that is looking pretty good....we will see. For now I'm taking a break and focusing on getting married and chillin' out for the summer.
