If you’re an artist who produces a lot of one-off pieces or a “crafty” person with a penchant for Fimo and paper clay you probably already know about Etsy, but for those who don’t, here’s the main sentence: Etsy is an online marketplace where anyone can sell their own handmade wares. There’s a lot of stuff on Etsy. Some of it is made with heart and care, and some of it is made by people who want to charge you $30 for a $10 cotton t-shirt with “TEAM JACOB” written on it in sparkly fabric paint. Suffice it to say that a search for “werewolf” yields a lot of blubber, but there are some juicy morsels for those who persevere. Here are a dozen things I found this afternoon that I thought were worth sharing (meaning I would buy them for myself).
“2-color, all hand screen printed art print with scarlet blood red and semi-transparent midnight black hand mixed and non-toxic water based inks.

“Pat O’Lupus is a very charming flutist who is asked to play merry dances and popular songs on many parties (weddings, birthdays and everything else). Strangely enough, he is nowhere to be seen on full-moon nights. Pat O’Lupus is a hand-made paper puppet. I printed it on a very thick 100% cotton Hahnemülhe paper.The puppet is composed of 13 articulated pieces. Pat O’Lupus is made after my original artwork in gouache. The puppet is about 13×8 inches. ♦ PAT O’LUPUS IS ONLY AVAILABLE IN A LIMITED EDITION OF 10 PUPPETS ♦ ” [link]
