happy news!!

I'm so pleased... oh, let me be real... I'm so ecstatic to announce that my big update was in honor of an extremely special day. I have been given the privilege of being Etsy's new featured seller! Please celebrate with me! I'd love to invite all my dear friends: new and old, virtual and in person, to raise a toast to each of us who invest our hearts into making things with our hands! Here, here! Anyone super close to me knows I haven't slept in days... so I must toast to an early bedtime tonight, as well!
xox,
Maya

  6. Oh Maya that is so inspiring! It was delightful to learn more about you, too. I grew up on a farm in NJ but we used to spend a few weeks every summer on Upper Saranac Lake, so that can't be too far from you. You live such a rich life, it seems, and it made my day to see you work celebrated on Etsy. Well done, and thanks for inspiring all of us with your creativity! xo

  82. Hi Maya-
    I hope being featured seller was a wonderful experience!
    And I was interested to read about your previous life and background in theater in another post. I was to go to school in Boston for art but the financial aid for me was not enough as well. It really did change the course of my life, I think. One more thing we have in common and something to talk about when we get together someday.
