Gifts for a Leo

My son is really into astronomy and has just gotten interested in astrology. I was looking around for some "Leo" themed presents for him. Before I knew it was creating this treasury as a gift guide for Leo's.

Craft Fair Season!

Well the Craft Fair season is in full swing! I have been to two so far and I have another one on Dec. 4th. I have resumed sewing sock creatures! Sometimes a break is all you need to clear your head and start creating again.

Please ignore the wrinkled tablecloth! I promise to iron it before the next craft fair (well I promise to ask Jeff to iron it).

Here are the new sock creatures!

I sold the two with eye patches. Boys love a good eye patch! So questions:

  • Would you be more likely to buy if each creature had a name?
  • Can you provide me with some names? HA!
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out my other new hobby... Wedding Blog

Since I have been selling so many of my wedding theme cards on Etsy, I have decided to launch a new blog dedicated to wedding color combos inspired by my card orders. It will also have cool Etsy wedding finds and wedding theme treasury. Please join me there too! Don't worry I will still keep blogging here about Etsy, Sock Creatures, card making and whatever I randomly think about.

The new blog is called "Be My Bridesmaid"

Treasury Challenge... Kind of

I had an idea for a treasury that combined my Chinese Zodiac sign with my Astrological sign of Cancer. I am not a crazy astrology follower but I think everyone likes to read the place mats at the Chinese restaurants.

So on to the challenge part! So I challenge you to:
  • Make a treasury based on your Chinese Zodiac and Astrological Zodiac sign
  • Bonus if you stay in a theme like "everything blue" or "all jewelry"
  • Additional Bonus if you find both your signs in one listing. (I hit the jackpot and found a zombie crabbit).
  • No prizes or anything just for fun, put a link to your treasury in the comments!
So check out My Treasury HERE

My son has requested a Lion/Dragon treasury so I am off to make it now!

Haunted House Anyone?

My favorite thing about October? Haunted Houses! Check out these great Haunted House items I found on Etsy. This is the treasury I put together today. (I actually got a little spooked making it!)

I especially love this sellers shop, Art by Crixie. These images are fantastic and set the mood so well! They are reasonably priced ACEO prints.

Check out these amazing Houses from Haunted Construction

The detail is fabulous!
Be sure to do some of your own digging around Etsy! You can find amazing things.
