Owl Spotlight---Inky Paws

Hi! Inky here. I've just popped in to show you some things I've been making recently. Everyone seems to like them a lot so I'm guessing you guys will too.

So I've been making knitted food. It's pretty fun to do. I just pick something and start knitting. I don't have any patterns or anything - I like to make up my own stuff!

I would say I've been knitting for as long as I can remember, which is true, but not entirely that impressive if you take into account the fact that I'm only 15. (Almost 16!)

I've probably only followed a pattern for something I've knitted about... 4 times? All the other 300 things I've knitted I just made up.
Sometimes, of course, it doesn't work. (Like that fingerless mitt I made up that ended up being plenty big enough for Hagrid from Harry Potter to wear...)

But anyway back to the food. I think the pizza is my favorite. But I also really like the chicken leg and the egg.

I don't have a photo of it, but I'm in the middle of knitting some bacon for that egg!

Well, that's all for now... Hope you enjoyed your visual feast and all that!

A bit of cross-team promoting...

One thing I would like to be more involved in is sharing with other Etsy teams, so when someone Twittered me the Owls earlier with a link to the Creative Glass Guild of Etsy's Current Creative Challenge, I decided to share it here on our blog too!

Etsy teams are just such a neat idea, and I really like the idea of being able to reach out to other networks. So, something we're going to be doing more this year is promoting other teams as well as our own team members!


GO VOTE in the CGGE team challenge. They have some really awesome entrants and there's still a few days left to vote.

New Year’s Resolutions!

It's Challenge time again! The theme of this challenge was centered around the New Year. Each Owl was asked to create an 8x10 photograph that depicted their New Year’s Resolution. To the left of this post is a poll. Please vote on your favorite Photo!!!!

CagedBirdSings “One of my new years resolutions is to have confidence in myself more.”

HollyStott “My New Year's Resolution is to try to spend even more time promoting the EtsyOwls.”

Jbirkemeierphoto's “I chose to start practicing yoga again so my back doesn't hurt so much.”

Suenosdejmi's “my New Years Resolution is to spend quality time with poetry.”

CorkysCookies “This year, with our impending move to the U.S. fast approaching in April, I wanted to focus on making up the outfits that I've been putting off last year. I'm shutting down my fabric shop in order to devote more time to sewing up the fabrics pictured here.”

Check out each listing, by clicking on each name, for more info about each resolution. And don’t forget to VOTE!
