Tiny = CUTE

I don't know what it is with me but anytime I see something tiny I just fall in love with it! Why do I bring this up? Well, I ordered some cute acorns from truLuxe that are needle felted from wool ( I ordered "red apple", "squash" and "pumpkin" colors). She actually puts acorn caps on little felted balls and they look so realistic and did I mention tiny and CUTE? When I opened up my package and saw them I couldn't STOP saying "Ohhhhh, how cute...." :)

They start out like this:

And end up like this:

I think Terri is pretty amazing because:

1. She is a single mom (I KNOW from experience how hard that is!) and

2. She has found a way to create income by making beautiful items that make people smile and say "Ohhhhhh.....How cute!"

How original was the title to this post, huh??? I 'm just kinda tired... Anywho...made some nifty magnets with the FREE PDF graphics sheet I received from Jennifer at Studio71 Design. Just for following her blog! Amazing. Sooo here they are.....

I call them "Cranberries, Mistletoe and Snow"....

And some others I also made (obviously NOT from the free PDF) called "Baubles"...

So, there ya have it... :)

Ok- based on:

1. the uncertainty of my liking the "Green" background blog template and
2. the blog comments (esp. the "pea green soup" one lol)

I am now back to my original background-I think. I'm not sure if I got all the colors right but it'll do for now! :)

Other news....

Today I made a gazillion (well dozens) of tags for my Etsy shop. They are my current obsession. I pretty much had to stay in the kitchen all day today because I was working on the whole potty training thing with my 2 1/2 year old ( figured it's much easier to clean tile than carpet). So why not just set up shop on my kitchen table (okay, who am I kidding.... there is already LOTS of my scrapbooking stuff already on the kitchen table). Figured I should make myself useful while my daughter was trying to be a "big girl" and sit on the potty.

I haven't taken pictures of all of the tags but here are a few....

For the cat and dog lover.....

If I was a seller of dog paraphernalia (thank goodness for spell checker) I would want these tags so I could include them in my customer's package with a little "Thank You" written on the back.

The other tags I made are more cutsie and Christmasy. Pictures of them to come soon!

Thoughts about GREEN

Hmmmmm.... I'm not so sure I like the GREEN color on this blog background. I think I'm gonna change it back to what it was..... What do you think? Leave me a comment!

Handmade Goodness

I've been meaning to spotlight a few of the hundreds of talented Etsian on my blog for quite some time now. Well, the time has come. Get ready for some AmAzInG talent!

First off we have the most darling (in my honest opinion) prints ever!!

Ummm...can you be in love with a drawing?!?!? Cause I love this cutie!!
Each print shows her wearing a famous designers outfit. I want one of each print!

This one is of Plasterdoll wearing DKNY. Fabulous isn't she? Don't you just love the band-aide? All of her prints show her with her signature band-aide. I guess she bumped her plaster head and got an owie.....

Next up we have Sparkle the Henryrabbit. These cute little rabbits are made with minky fabric and look soooo incredibly soft! I must have one...maybe this one? There are lots of other henryrabbits for sale. You know how rabbits are....multiply very quickly!

I'm definitely impressed with the soap makers on Etsy. Just look at these yummy soaps!
This first one is made by sudzandbubbles and looks like a real piece of pie! MMMmmmmm.. I'm thinking I would just want to look and admire this one instead of use it! :)

And these soaps are just great for Christmas! They are mistletoe and peppermint stick flavors and you can get them from sunbasilgarden . How festive!

Finally we have this darling little "Cutie Doll" made by yuyuart. She is made from Australia merino wool and stand just six inches tall. Just look at all the details. Soooo cute!

I am always amazed at the talented artist work I see on Etsy. I love it!
