Minty Fresh!

I finally got another treasury today! I've had this one ready to go for days.. turns out that a lot of the original items I was going to include were sold.. but I found some perfect substitutes anyway! Check it out here..

New Painting "My Friend.."

Hi there, and happy Saturday! This time last week I was at my easel - covered in pink and yellow paint! I did this painting for my best friend, for her birthday yesterday - so now she's seen it I can now share it here!

Knock Knocking

I often hesitate when I go to share something with you here, as I know from time to time different things do the 'rounds' of the blogosphere. The last thing I want to do is be an echo, so when I find something I like I sometimes assume that everyone would already have seen it. But I was thinking today - is this really true? I mean there is so much out there, even within the handmade/indie niche! I'm sure our tracks around this niche are somewhat varied, and I hope that occaisonally I am able to bring something here that is new to you!

Today I'd like to share these beautiful mixed media yarn wreaths by Agnes Blum of Knock Knocking. Most of these photos where taken from Knock Knocking's flickr photstream. You can also check out her Etsy shop and blog. Enjoy!

Happy December!

Hello there, and happy December! I am sitting here this evening looking out over our neighbourhood which is slowly lighting up with Christmas lights. Such a buzz in the air! I've been munching away on candy canes all afternoon, and I've created a candy cane inspired treasury in Etsy Poster Sketch that I can't wait to share with you! Just have to get myself a treasury again!

Speaking of treasuries, did you see my Teal Appeal treasury on the front page of Etsy on Sunday? I just happened to log in at the right time (how lucky is that?) and I saw it! So happy for the sellers that were featured, and all the sales that they made!

A couple of days ago at work, I spent quite some time signing my name on dozens and dozens of Christmas cards that we send out to our customers. I thought I would put together a little collection of some of my favourites from Etsy. Enjoy!
