Etsy Fun Finds – Eastern Inspiration Treasury

My mom has an etsy shop, and one of her items made it into a treasury today.  I just had to share!

An October Pink Sale!

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, and my sister who is a breast cancer SURVIVOR, I’m having a quick little sale in my shop this week.  You can check out the “October Pink Sale” section in my shop, and get 10% off any item in that section.   The sale will run through Thursday night.  (And if you see something in my shop that is NOT pink, but you would like it MADE in pink, just let me know!

Etsy Fun Finds – Aqua & Orange Treasury

I am enamored with treasuries.  It always astounds me that there are so MANY lovely items on etsy that I would never see except for by accident when browsing the treasuries pages.  I plan to make “Treasuries” one of my regular features here at

And I’m starting with this lovely one, curated by twillypop. I would never have thought to combine these colors into a scheme, but I’m loving it!  You can click the image to check out the items and treasury in more detail.

Send Me Your Etsy Minis

Because I’m slightly more than a little totally addicted to, I can guarantee that at least half of my posts will feature artists and crafters I find on etsy.  I love, love, love the idea of having a blog that not only promotes what I do (in a small way), but also offers an opportunity for others to promote what THEY do.

I hope to make it VERY easy for etsy shop owners to advertise here on  And one of the ways I’ll do this is with the Etsy Mini Page.   Do you have an etsy shop?  Send me your etsy mini code, and you’ll be added to the page!*  For now I’ll just add them as they come in, but if it grows too large for one page, I’ll break the minis into categories for easy viewing.

So… email me your code, folks!  char @ (without the spaces).  Please select thumbnail size of 75 and 1 column, 3 rows when creating your code to send my way.

*I reserve the right to refuse any etsy mini with items that might clash with my “family friendly” atmosphere.  Thanks for understanding!
