I don’t think it’s a secret to anyone that I’m a huge space nerd. Also not surprising: the fact that my nerdery overflows into my craftiness obsession. What was a surprise? When Alan Boyle – the science editor from msnbc.com – contacted me on Etsy to ask if he could use an image of my Shuttle for a post he’s doing about an Etsy-NASA contest!
An Etsy-NASA contest?!? How was I not aware of this??
It’s true that I have been neglecting my Etsy store since I started my job, (consequently, my pattern sales have slooowed right down), but I can’t believe that a NASA themed contest got past me! Turns out the winner of this contest gets to go to Florida in February to see the Shuttle launch. (AHHHHHHH!) And the winning item “might” even go into space on the shuttle. (That means: if it’s light enough. Because rocket fuel aint cheap.)
The only thing that makes me sad about this contest: it’s only open to American residents. *Sad face.*
Well that’s all for now. Live Long and Prosper. *Spok hands*.
