Wine and Roses, BNR

We've had 2 sales this round!

Thanks once more go to Smadar!
She included me in her Wine and Roses Treasury

Sunday, November 15, 2009! (And many more!)

I'm inbetween my BNR treasuries at the moment - but I'm privilaged to have my work featured in two treasuries hosted by two of my Etsy Bead Weaver Team Mates! Thanks gals - you rock!

Hot Pink and Black
Mine's the Punk Rocker Bracelet Top Left

This one floored me, because Illeana named the treasury after my piece!
Apparently Earth Walker (Top Center) was the inpiration for this treasury.
Thanks Illeana :D

BNR and EBW!!!!

OK first of all - I'm really late blogging about the current Etsy Bead Weaver Challenge! Oopsie! There are only 3 days left to vote! And....I'm actually in this one! Woohoo! Number 8, but you don't have to vote for me, vote your your favorite! Although I'd be honored if that was me :)

Second - I have round 2 of my on-going BNR up! We got 2 sales the first round!
I wonder how many sales we'll get this time?

How can you NOT love a shop who's banner reads:
"I'll see your mildly eccentric, and raise you a downright odd."

A BNR Treasury - and so much more!

One of the things I did when I first started this blog was I'd document when ever I snagged a treasury or was in a treasury, that left my main blog free for other things. I'm not really sure why I stopped doing that... Maybe because I stopped snagging treasuries on a regular basis and the rare occasions I WAS in one were causes for celebration so they ended up on the main blog! Well, I'm going to be much more active in the treasury world, at lest through Christmas, and I'm going to document it on here :) Don't worry - I'll keep doing my features too!

Lovely Leaves from the Etsy Bead Weavers

Every day I sit at my work desk and look out my screen door at this big tree. As we've moved steadily into fall I've seen it go from being covered in green, to bright and glorious shades of red, orange, and yellow, and now the leaves are becoming ever more bare as we move into winter. So, naturally, I decided to do a search on leaves with my lovely etsy bead weavers team! This is what I found...

Featuring Vitrine

I first saw Vitrine's shop because she was very sweet and featured me in a treasury. I always love looking at fellow jewelry artists, so I thought I'd feature her! One thing I always love to learn about people is why they have the shop names they have, and this is what it says in the opening section of her shop:

vi·trine /vɪˈtrin/
a glass cabinet or show case, esp. for displaying art objects.

I love all the natural elements that she uses - look at that thunder egg!

Featuring Love to Stamp

Today I was paying bills, needing a break, and I decided it was treasury time! But what would I do? Well, bills equal paper...and that made me think of my friend Love to Stamp! All of these finds are from her etsy shop. I would have featured some from her artfire, but when artfire put the new studios live it messed up some of the code uses with the spotlights. So until Adam fixes it I can't feature artfire that way :( So go here to see her other shop!
