In Lewis Carroll's book, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the White Rabbit appears in the first chapter muttering, "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!"
He then scurries down a rabbit hole, where Alice follows him and she ends up in Wonderland.
I'm feeling a bit like both these characters these days — I'm running late on opening my Etsy store, but I feel like I've landed in Wonderland and I'm havin' a whole lot of fun!

I'm still overwhelmed by your response to my driftshell art and while I thought I could blog and visit while I got my Etsy store ready to open, folks, that just ain't happening. I've been making sporadic visits, dropping in here and there, but let me tell you right now, opening an Etsy store isn't all that easy. It is not as easy as starting a blog — that's for sure! Lots to read and understand, store policies to set, PayPal to set up and figure out and most of all — designing more goodies!
Oh yeah, I'm spending hours and hours covered in paint, glue and shells! Right now I need to concentrate and get this store open. So, please excuse my absence and please don't forget me. I'm almost there and then I can breath again and we can have a nice, long visit.
I want to thank all of you who have already placed orders via snail-mail! WOWZA! Who knew? The store is slated to open this Friday, barring any more disruptions. I'll be back to let you know and to invite you to the World Oceans Day Blog Party I'm having in June. I think it will be a whole lot of fun and I've decided to give everyone who attends a chance to win a special prize AND there will be TWO winners chosen!!!!
So for now, know that I adore and I miss you all!!!!
Oh, and I promise you won't have to fall down a rabbit hole to come to my party!
