Uncommon Talents Part 3

Not only can they say it and send it in 140 characters or less, but the Etsy Twitter Team has an abundance of hidden talents, skills and life experiences. Let’s get to know some of them “up close and personal.” Consider yourself warned…

A good neighbor will babysit. A great neighbor will babysit twins. ~Author Unknown

@inmyheadstudios and her sister are "mirror image twins," rather than fraternal twins, due to their right and left handedness, how their finger prints line up if they put their hands together and other physical mannerisms that mirror each other.

Once they switch seats in class and took each other’s spelling test. As the test was ending, a classmate stood up and announced that they had switched seats. The teacher would never have caught on if the little stoolie hadn’t ratted them out!

prettywhimsical is the mother of 13-year-old identical twin girls. At birth, they weighed a total of 13.1 pounds. (Good thing that there were two of them, or that would have been one LARGE baby!)

curiousmess is pregnant with twins. (I am doing everything in my power not to make a smart comment about being pregnant with twins and having the moniker “curious mess.”) We are so delighted for her and wish her good health throughout her pregnancy with her two precious babies.

Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet. ~Colette

TheCheckerdRabbit has a pet Dutch Bunny named Piper that is half pure white and half chocolate brown. She looks a bit checkered. Guess from where her shop name came…

WellspringCreations and her family have a parakeet because it flew onto their front door screen. They call him the uninvited guest who never left. You will be happy to know that HE is very happy and has his people well trained.

jenco13 use to have a horse named Gracie when she was growing up on Long Island. Her friends all thought it was strange that she had a horse on Long Island and also that she considered Gracie as her best friend.

FromNancysHeart had no pets as a child – unless dust bunnies count. (Sorry, Nancy, they don’t.)

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by. ~Douglas Adams

PunkyJane wrote and self-published a children's book called Sally the Sheep and the Very Cloudy Day .

<------JaybirdDesigns is a published crochet designer with items in Crochet World, Crochet Today and Interweave Crochet. She also has a booklet with Leisure Arts titled Top-sy Turvy.

FromNancysHeart has written three “children’s stories” with her five-year-old nephew. After having many stories read to him, he wanted to start writing stories of his own. And so, she purchased a simple composition book for him. Their first title is "The 12 days of Pasta." They followed it up with "Ralph's Farm" and are now working on "We Gave a Cat a Candy Corn." (That last one is sure to be #1 on the Amazon Best Seller List!)

lindab142 has been working on a book about cats for about eight years and still hasn’t finished it. (Linda, honey, almost is only in horseshoes.)

Without music, life would be a mistake. ~Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

lostmitten has played the piano since she was 4 years old. She also plays the guitar, clarinet and bass. At one time, she was in a band and toured across part of Canada. They also recorded their own CD!

bellflowertextiles was a concert violinist on the competitive circuit as a child. She started playing at the age of five, gave her first solo concert at age 11, started competing in 7th grade, then burned out badly and gave it all up by the age of 20. Today, she still has perfect pitch and plays five musical instruments: violin, piano, flute, trumpet and harpsichord.

Close Encounters of the Stranger Kind
capecodjewel never met a president, but she did meet the self-proclaimed "King of all Media," Howard Stern. She use to listen to him all the time when he had his radio show in NYC and was very excited to win tickets to attend the first taping of his syndicated radio show. (‘Nuff said.)
