Swimmy leaves for NYC!

One of my favorite things about being a part of Etsy are the really fun projects that you can participate in! In a recent Storque article, Etsy was compared to the book "Swimmy". Etsy is the eye, and all the sellers are the other fish that come together to make one large fish. If you're not familiar with the book, it's a must read!

As part of a large collaborative Etsy community project, each seller was asked to make their own orange fish. If you go here: you can view a slide show of other swimmys.

I decided to make my swimmy using torn magazine pages to create a mosaic. I found the perfect page with a close up view of an orange. This was would represent where I'm from, Orange County. Next I searched for a beautiful eye, and luscious lips. She turned out so cute! Now she's on her way to the big apple to join all of her new friends in the Underwater Diorama at Etsy!
