with thanks

hello etsy wedding fans -- a little note to first of all thank *all* of you for reading and for supporting all the amazing indie designers and crafters on etsy --

and second, to let you know i'll be taking a bit of time off over the next week or two. my boyfriend and i have just called it off after two turbulent but great years, mostly long-distance after i had to move for my job. and while i'm certainly not down on love or angry -- we still love each other very much -- i plan on taking a break from weddings for a bit.

i started this blog by accident. partly because my sister was getting married and i couldn't believe how much bad wedding crap was in the world (!), and partly because i was so inspired by what etsy folks had to offer and saw a connection to be made -- i *love* highlighting the community and trying to spread the word --

but i have continued it, to my surprise, because i like the sense of hope and love and promise, and the thought of so many people embarking on brilliant new adventures together. joy can be addictive that way.

here's one more post for now. i'll be back.


  1. Never commented before but wanted to let you know I am a dedicated reader/lurker and you will be missed! All the best during this rough time and I can't wait for your return!

  2. gosh. helen, that is just so sweet of you -- that means the world! will be traveling to see family this week but am hoping to be back at it sometime thanksgiving-ish.

    thank you *so* much for your kindness --

    jen :)

  3. Ditto to what Helen said! Your choices are so wonderful and are just the inspiration I need to avoid swimming in a sea of mass-produced weddingness.

    Come back soon!

  4. Your blog really helps me weed out unique and beautiful stuff from Etsy...otherwise I'd spend hours on there. So thanks, relax, but I'll be here when you get back!

  5. Another long time lurker and dedicated reader. I have fallen in love with etsy and then with your perfect blog. I wish you the best through this difficult time and can't wait to see you back here!

  6. Just wanted to say thank you and good luck. You've really turned me on to Etsy. I'll be here when you return.

  7. Take care Jen, hope you're feeling ok. Looking forward to you return and your great etsy eye!
