Shhhhh……

I’m really excited about some of the handmade items that have blessed our home this Christmas.  With the multitude of shows and on-line orders that I had filling my plate this year, I knew that I wouldn’t be able to make a lot of my gifts.  But that’s okay, as I am constantly surrounded by handmade beauty each and every day thanks to Etsy.

I wanted to share a few of the awesome handmade items that I have bought for Christmas this year.. and a few that I have received!  I’m not saying who they are for… just in case 😉

Someone I know is going to be sporting these awesome earrings really soon!  SevenPly recycles broken skateboards into fun and beautiful jewelry.  I just adore her shop, and knew someone who would too!

I love these sock monkey cup cozies!  I have actually purchased two now, one as a birthday gift and one for a Christmas gift.  CrookedHookCreations has some of the cutest crochet items I have ever seen.  And these monkeys are perfect!

One of my favorite shops on Etsy is OrangeThyme.  Rachel makes some amazing smellies!  And I mean that in the best possible way!!  I’m looking forward to receiving this cute little soap in the mail soon.  Complicated Reindeer is the brainwork of both Rachel and her 6-year-old daughter.  A sweet-smelling soap with lots of red glitter…. just like Rudolph’s nose!  There is none of this magical soap in stock at this time, but let me assure you that there isn’t a bad product in this shop.  They are all amazing!

I was lucky enough to have an awesome Secret Santa this year through my Treasury Tree Team.  Erica of BisonGirl makes some adorable baby booties.  Here is an example of her work:
 

Owl Booties!

I haven’t fit into baby booties for quite some time now, but Erica found some awesome items from other Etsy sellers and had them sent to me. 

TNTees is a shop after my own heart!  TNTees litterally stands for “Trash into Tees” and that’s exactly what Jenelle does.  She makes  gorgeous jewelry, adorable clothing and functional and fun items out of recycled t-shirts.  You can see why I love this shop so much!  I just love my new produce bags 🙂

I was also fortunate to receive 2 amazing items from DirtyDeedsSoap from my secret Santa.  The lavender soap smells so lovely, and the Chocolate Truffle Lip Balm is absolutely heavenly.  I don’t know how Erica knew that I was a soap addict, but I want to thank her and DirtyDeeds  for helping fuel my addiction 😉 

Chocolate Truffles for your lips!

I most likely will be too busy to blog the next few weeks, so I wanted to leave you all with my Christmas wish….

I hope that everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season!  Bless you all and I will see you in 2012!

Christmas Ideas – Recycled Style!

If you are looking for ideas for Christmas, why not buy handmade?  And if you are looking for handmade presents this year, why not buy recycled?

 

Here are a few of my favorite Eco-Friendly gift items:

 

These gorgeous leg warmers from SweetBriers on Etsy are recycled from an old sweater.  They would look darling with some black tights and cute pumps!

Repurposed Sweater Leg Warmers in Gray and Black Stripes

 

I love these book lamps made by ConduitPress!  This is totally on my wish list this year!

How about an organizer with drawers made from recycled cigar boxes?  Check out this awesome three shelved wooden case from APKHandmade!

Chest of Cigar Box Drawers

 

These recycled paper ornaments are so awesome!  Kerri from TheRehatchery hand cuts and assembles each one.  I love it!!

I think just about everyone I know would appreciate one of these gorgeous gifts… Including myself!!  (not that I’m hinting or anything….)

Have an Awesome Autumn!

Even though summer still lingers here in Eastern Washington, Autumn is on my mind.  Here are a few awesome Autumn inspired pieces from some amazing artists…

Autumn Leaves Paperweight by AuberryGirl

 

And, of course, one of my favorite parts about Autumn… Halloween!  Here is one of my Halloween necklaces that I currently have on sale in my Etsy Shop.

Peacock Bullet Earrings are back!

I recently renewed my listing for my “Pretty Peacock Salvaged Bullet and Chain” earrings after they were featured in the Etsy finds last Friday.  They sold right away!  Now, I’m offering a chance to get your hands on these gorgeous earrings in case you missed the first opportunity. 

http://www.etsy.com/listing/74774813/pretty-peacock-salvaged-bullet-chain-and

I have a pair for myself that are a bit shorter and without the chain, and I get a ton of compliments on them!  They are stunning earrings!!

But hurry!  I have a limited number of peacock feathers left, and all feathers have increased in value since the last time I purchased them.  I don’t know how long I can keep them at this price!

I always wanted to be a spy….

I recently joined another team on Etsy, known as the “Etsy Treasury Hunters”.  Each week they have a fun treasury challenge, usually centering around a certain theme.

I had an awesome time putting together my first submission for week 8 challenge theme “Secret Agent”.
