Etsybloggers Carnival - April 23, 2010

April 23rd Etsybloggers Team Carnival is brought to you by Joey (Mama Etsyblogger) our fearless leader. First of all, Happy Birthday Joey. In keeping with the birthday spirit, I chose the topic, "Tell us your birthday and what astrological sign you are. Do you ever read/follow your horoscope?"

I used to follow my horoscope pretty religiously, when I was in my early teens, but that routine fell to the wayside. I was born January 18th, making me a Capricorn, on the cusp of Aquarius. Since I consider myself a flower-power, peaceful hippie, I always have to mention that cusp! My astrological sign is a goat - probably that's why! Who wants to be a goat, for goodness sake! I know that I'm supposed to be a climber and all. But I thought I'd get some "professional advice" from the internet, and can tell you this:

"The sign of the high roller, Capricorn is regarded as the zodiac’s top, but also quiet, life and business achievers. But, there are two very different types of Capricorns.

The first is represented by the mountain goat, always climbing higher and higher; never content until reaching the top. The second is the garden goat, with little adventurous spirit or ambition-happy to remain within a small domain, refusing to budge unless it is pushed. Either type of Capricorn, however, is patient and persevering. They reach their goals because they know the longest journey commences with a single step and that the first step is always the most difficult."

For those of you who know me, I think you would agree... I'm the second type. I'm not really ambitious, except in my own little sphere. Hey, isn't that what the astrologer just said? I guess people consider me successful... I've been in the same job for 24 years!

When I first started looking around on Etsy, to find some goat-related items, I thought I was a goner... lots of goat's milk soap. But then, narrowing my search to art, I found many fabulous artists. Actually, there were TOO many. Here are some fun picks - tell me what's your favorite!

1. Lady Goat Watercolor Print
2. The Great Balloon Adventure
4. Chinese Folk Art Paper Cutting, Zodiac Animals - Goat / Sheep
5. Don't Panic
6. Little White Rabbit, Goat and the Hill
7. 3 Gilly Goats Gruff - Signed Giclee Print
8. Summer Girl and Her Goat Pet
9. Goat on a hillside, Folk Art felt pillow
10. Original Goat Painting Primitive Art

I'm a Capricorn, too!
This reminds me of those 70s films where the guy asked the girl her sign and if it was a match then he could date her.

Thank you for the birthday wishes!! Too funny about being a goat. And wow same job for 24 years?! Sounds very ambitious. And I'd agree you are quite the climber for that! Great finds - #9 is my favorite.
