My New Necklace

Well when I was in a crappy mood last week I hopped on Etsy and got lost for an hour or two. I put in an alchemy request for an out of the box item. I got a bunch of stuff that was ok I guess but nothing jumped out of the screen like this necklace. I bought it right away and it came just a few days later. I have gotten tons of compliments on it, well except from my mom. She doesn't get it...
Anyway I wanted to give her the spotlight for a day and tell you that if you like this kind of art go and visit her.
So it's Happy Friday, Thank God. I have put some of my photos on deviant art. Another of my new favorite places. Like I need more of my life taken up on the computer.
So I'm off to my etsy shop for no more than 20 minutes!!!!

Featured etsian of the week, Spiderbite

You all have to see this sellers shop on Etsy
It is soo cool and she is on her way to her 700th sale and I can see why. These journals are the cutest things I have ever seen. As soon as I start making some money from etsy I am going to buy them for the kids. The one on this pic is a nightmare snatcher. There is a great poem that goes with it. So if you want something completely out of the ordinary then check out the Spiderbite boutique.

What a wonderful world

Well as many of you know last week was pretty crappy when I found out that I had been ripped off. Out of all that I have to tell you the bright spot I had. There was a wonderful seller on etsy that sent me a whole bag of beads for my daughters birthday just to help make it better. I can't tell you what that meant to me. So many people are out for number one and this great girl just wanted to help make my daughters birthday great! Well it was. The girls had tons of fun with the beads and got WAY too loud. (It was a long 2 hours) But thanks to her it was so much better. Her shop is Rverk47 and she makes absolutely beautiful lampwork beads and lovely jewelry. I am definitely hearting her and you should do the same.

Featuring Nomadcraftsect

Hi everyone,
Well this week was sort of a hard one for me. I ordered a 16 sets of chef hats and aprons for my daughters birthday party which is tomorrow and it turns out that the person never shipped them. I got completely ripped off. so that being said I don't feel warm and fuzzy to write about myself so I thought I would feature someone else.

Their etsy shop is Nomadcraftsect They are a family of artists that aspire to travel the country like nomads meeting wonderful people along the way. I can tell you that I love their beads. They have these beautiful lampwork pendants. I haven't seen anything like them. check them out and maybe we can help them live their dream of becoming real life nomads.

The Etsy Life is taking over!!!

I had NO idea what would be involved in the ETSY world. I think posting your items is the least of your worries. I have gotten completely overwhelmed so I have decided to only do 1 or 2 things with my etsy promotions a day. I have just done my etsy mini and I registered on Facebook which I also don't understand. So I am going to pop into a forum for no more than 10 minutes and say Hi and then go about my day like a normal person.
Have a great day

My new etsy mini

Happy Friday,

Well I think I could've been much more productive this week. Sometimes my days get away from me and then they're gone. I did take some great pics in last weeks ice storm. Here is one. I have to learn more about this blogging life. I know nothing about it. But live and learn. I'll get there.

I'm adding some photography greeting cards on my etsy shop by Sunday! I am still working on my fine art painting series my Funky Party Trees. I would like to list some by the end of the month. I need to have more than 1 or 2 to sell so I look more professional I guess.
