back from the dead

caro's office Thanks to everyone who’s weighed in on the prints pricing issue so far! I appreciate your input. More thoughts/opinions are welcome!

I posted a few photos of my office at Flickr. Someday I will be one of those people whose home inspires lengthy interviews on interior design blogs (heh, yeah, right). Until then, you get to see my fugly beige carpet and bright purple walls with blue trim.

In other news, I am so excited because Etsy re-launched Alchemy  today! I’ve never had the opportunity to experience the wonder that is Alchemy… when I joined last March, it was but a whisper in Etsy legend, and many feared it had gone the way of the unicorn. But now it’s back, and I’m already hooked!

For those who aren’t familiar with the concept, Alchemy allows buyers to request custom handmade items and designs. Etsy sellers can bid on buyers’ requests and offer to make whatever it is the buyer wants, and the buyer chooses the bidder that best fits the bill. I’ve placed a few bids, and I’m already dreaming of all the things I could request.

On a related note, you may notice that there is a “Request Custom Item” link on the right-hand side of my Calobee Doodles shop. By clicking on that link you can now place custom orders using the Alchemy interface, which allows you to request specific items or designs I hadn’t thought to include in my standard “Custom Doodle” listings. Please feel free to abuse it! 😉


  1. I’m sure this won’t come as any surprise….I love looking at pictures of people’s home/offices/etc.
    Thanks for posting yours!

    I just noticed the Alchemy thing yesterday too. It will be interesting to see how it goes…
