the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Handmade turquoise ring

My dear friend Leah Peah made me this ring earlier this year and has finally opened her own Etsy shop. She’s visiting Salt Lake City this weekend and is participating in a craft fair tomorrow from 10am to 4pm at 1008 East Hillview Drive (4060 South). I’ll probably stop by to see what she has available. She asked me if I wanted to sell any of my own crafts at this thing, and I was all, Leah. Seriously. There’s a reason I’m such a huge consumer of Etsy. BECAUSE I CAN’T MAKE.
