Habitual Habitat of the Amy

I kept reading advice columns for how to bring sales to your etsy shop, and one thing they all said is to get a blog.

I can't say this blog has boosted my etsy sales, but it has given me yet another outlet for talking about myself, and that can't be bad--can it?

Go Team Amy!

I love this tapestry. Actually, if you spent some time looking for the wall from Saturday's post, you may have noticed that there are, in fact, two of these red geometric tapestries. That's because I love the original too much to part with it--this is a downfall of mine, clearly--so I made a second one to sell.  They are subtly different, but also very similar.

Not only have I made two red tapestries from this pattern, but my Blue Geometric Tapestry is the same pattern as well--it's just inverted, and looks entirely different.

The mirror image and symmetry lines in the red tapestries remind me of the oriental rugs my mom likes to decorate the floors with--she has a preference for the red ones, so it's a pretty strong association for me--and thus I put a line of fringe along the top and bottom edges of the two red tapestries to enhance that connection.  I also think it's hilarious that here's this tiny beaded thing pretending to be a giant floor rug. That's the kind of irony I eat for breakfast.
