"Quit Your Day Job"


Now that I have a new computer, since January, anyway, and now that I have wyfy in my house I can participate in Etsy Virtual Labs! Last night I sat in on my second "Quit Your Day Job" live chat.

For those not in the know, After signing in to Etsy, click on Community and then on Virtual Labs. You"ll see a number of colorful boxes with names and times of labs listed in each one.

When you enter a lab room it looks just like stadium seating and when you click on an empty square seat
your avatar will appear there.
Then you can type in questions and the host of the lab will answer as many as she/he can in the hour allotted.




But here's my very tine beef; both of the sessions I sat in on
were hosted by jewelry makers. am not a jewelry maker and, although by jewelry makers. I am not a jewelry maker and although I was able glean lots of ideas, I did
not feel particularly connected to the host.
I hope that in the future the "Quit Your Day Job" lab will be hosted by a range of artists. As a matter of fact, I will go in the forums and post a request to Etsy Admin. today.

You make some nice things. how is it to live in a farm? You should post about it ( I am very interested).
We are moving to live in the countryside of austria at the end of the year, in a old farm....
