Yeah, She's Got Mad Skills...

I've had the pleasure of meeting an insane amount of talented artists and crafters
via the wonderful world of Etsy (and two of its fabulous street teams Etsy Steam Team and Etsy's Dark Side). It is through these networks that I came to know
the work of Victoria Shaffer.
A true renaissance woman she creates jewelry, parasols and hats (all of which are available in her
shop, Designs By Victoria...and she can now add published poet
to the list!
"Counting Heartbeats"
is lovingly handmade and handbound book published by
Seraphemera Books.
Want to check out a sample of
her work before you
decide to make a purchase?
Sure you do...
allow me to suggest her poem
And if that isn't enough to sate your curiosity
then check out
"Butterfly Wings" and
"Where The Head & Heart Meet."
Renaissance woman indeed.

Congratulations, Victoria.
I wish you success in your new venture!


  1. Thanks for the feature! It's very exciting for me. My mother is a writer as well, publishing poetry before I was born, and I'm proud to be following in her footsteps.


  2. Wonderful & congratulations again Victoria!

  3. How lovely! Beautiful work in all of your pursuits, Victoria!
