Moth & Dandelion

Sometimes you just have to hand your camera over to a child. This beautiful photograph was taken by my 8 year old who loves to explore nature all things related to nature. "Mama, I just have to have the camera. You won't believe this!" My child who has a pet praying mantis, who collects moths, captures newts, and is afraid of spiders captured this beauty earlier today. The perspective of a child is endlessly inspiring!

Another Treasury

Obviously, this has been a very exciting week for me on Etsy! Imagine, 2 treasuries in one week. I'm very excited about this treasury specifically because this is the launch of my polymer clay pendants which feature images. These lightweight colorful pendants are completely customizable and can be created in a variety of attractive colors. Thank you Lil922 for including me in your beautiful treasury!

The Etsy Treasury

Etsy is so much fun in so many ways, but nothing beats being in the Treasury. OK, hearing back from a satisfied customer is THE most rewarding thing, but being featured in a Treasury is, well, a nice surprise. Thank you, HelloCrafty, for including me in your treasury!

The FAITH Kanji magnet with Japanese Yuzen papers is a beautiful addition to any decor. Elegant and graceful, who can resist such a beautiful expression?

Cutest Handmade Zip Pouch

I just wanted to share the cutest zip purse I received yesterday from In celebration of her first "Etsyversary", Breanna gave away this gorgeous handmade zip pouch and yours truly was the most fortunate recipient. Breanna's store at Etsy is filled with handmade pouches, headbands and such created from a variety of trendy and tasteful fabrics. It's clear from this fabulous pouch that both quality and creativity are important to Breanna and I couldn't be more tickled to have this pouch!

To Love or Hate

Made with LOVE by me in my studio, and I HATE to sell it, but this item will be listed for sale on my Etsy store in the next day or two. 100% lead free.
