Loving the Butterflies!

After doing a post on dragonflies the other day I was suddenly seeing butterflies everywhere!  Which isn't that surprising because I've always adored butterflies :)  So here you go!

Etsy Bloggers and the Color Yellow

Why yellow you may ask? Because I turned to my Dad and said, "pick a color, any color," and he said, "yellow!" So there ya go.

Every Monday I'm going to be featuring items from my awesome Etsy Bloggers Team - enjoy :)

A Loveable Monster

And these are very handy to have around!

Not only is this hat adorable - so is the model!

I love the Jewelry Jackie makes :)

Can't help but plug these - why?
Well I bought my Mom purple and blue pairs for her birthday.
And she loves them.
And Nora rocks to work with :)

My friend Stormy, who's a polymer clay artist, recently created a dragonfly that I love! Then this morning I found a pendant with a dragonfly on it...and today's theme was born :) Her's is the top dragon fly shown. Please click on the picture to check out the listings themselves on etsy :)

Team BDC In Yellows and Oranges :)

So I've decided that some of the day's of the week are going to be themed days :) Saturday's will be a look at what's new with my team the Big Damn Crafters! Want to find out more about the team and even MORE of what's new? Check out the blog! The short information is that we are a team dedicated to the show Firefly - and while I'm new to the team - I love these guys already :)

To find more items by this wonderful team do an etsy search for "TeamBDC."

Not only will you find this piece on sale -
she's having a BIG SALE in her shop!

Kate is a wonderful artist and friend -
and I look forward to the day I can buy some of her product!

Topaz Swarovski - and did I mention Topaz is my birthstone?

Witchy-dear, I'm showing these for you :)

Jayne Cobb is one of the beloved characters from the show Firefly.
And this hat is one of his signature pieces of clothing!
It even comes with a note from Ma Cobb!

Note to my dearest Etsy Bloggers: Do not feel left out! your day of the week is coming :) I just came up with the idea during a Team BDC meeting so they got in first :P

Fabulous Bags and Totes!

Today's theme was inspired by a few things - one - it was the theme that caught my eye when I looked through my favorites today! Honestly though, it probably caught my eye because of the article my friend Lily wrote.

Here's a fun repurposed bag is in my favorite color!

And these awesome t-totes are made by my friend Lily who wrote the article I mentioned!

I love dragons :)

Burlap Coffee Bags Recycled to make awesome bags!

Red and Wild

So they aren't entirely red - but they DO all have red in them in one way or another and they ARE all wild to a degree :D

I love Dance - Makes me feel wild and free :)

I love this - I'd buy it if I could!

Twilight inspired - *sigh*

This I'd like to buy too...

Too bad I'm broke eh?

Treasury Goodness!

There was lots of fun treasury goodness going on last night! I snagged two, Round 2 of my ongoing BNR and then a fun one in T-West. :)

And much to my surprise and gratitude I'm featured in one! Thanks stormy!

If you don't know how an on-going BNR works - what happens is that I keep featuring shops until they have a sale from being in my BNR. Whoever purchased from them takes their place and then stays in until THEY get a sale! Great way to get exposure if you've had your eye on any of these items or if you have shopping you want to do :)

Passionately Purple

Well, one thing you'll quickly learn about me is that I LOVE purple! So of course my second ever treasury blog has to be dedicated to that glorious color :)

My friend Lauren made this ring - and I love it!

Isn't this pretty?

I know this doesn't look very purple - but I take her word on it - and the idea is just sooo cool! It has at charms inside it that you discover as you burn it! I sooo want one :)

What's not to love about this cuff?

Wrong size for me - or I'd totally wear this:

The First Treasury - Roses of Course :)

How can a girl who's business name is Rose Works Jewelry start off a Treasury blog with anything BUT a bunch of delightful finds in Roses?

Metal Rose

A Rose Hairclip

This rose is awesome because it combines my passions! It's jewelry, it's a rose, and it's inspired by a book that I love. Twilight, by Stephanie Myers.

Believe it or not - this rose is made from coffee filters!

And little bitty roses!


Welcome to my newest blog! I've been around the blogging world for awhile and on a variety of hosting sites. I'm opening up a new blog on this particular site for many reasons, but most of them are boring logistical one's that you don't care about :P What you REALLY want to know is what I mean by a treasury blog right?

I'm a jewelry artist and I maintain a shop on Etsy. Never heard of Etsy? Well here's what the team on Etsy has to say about themselves!

"Etsy is an online marketplace for buying & selling all things handmade.

Our mission is to enable people to make a living making things, and to reconnect makers with buyers.

Our vision is to build a new economy and present a better choice:

Buy, Sell, and Live Handmade."

I love selling on Etsy for a variety of reasons. Having a place to sell my stuff is the obvious one :P More than that though, I love the community and getting to connect with so many awesome artists. I'm always learning new things and making new friends! I'm also always finding new things that I just LOVE!

I know several people who maintain a blog entirely for showing off the wonderful finds that they discover on etsy. I've featured things from time to time on my main blog that I maintain, but I've decided I'd like to do it more often! I don't want to overrun my other blog so I'm starting this one :)
