Picnik and a Fashion Show...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE picnik! I've been experimenting with making my etsy pictures look better. I tried every single possibility and finally decided on the matte effect. It gives the pictures a soft white "glow" and really makes the item a focal point. And as promised...I will begin introducing my family to you...starting with my youngest bambino...Tatiana {please ignore the mess I have yet to unpack in the background;}

She LOVES clothes and anything that has to do with fashion. She also LOVES doing arts and crafts with mommy. Maybe she'll combine the two and be a fashion designer! She's in preschool now...she's such a good little student. Tatiana is sweet and kind {when she's not having a temper tantrum} and I couldn't imagine life without her!

Stone Soup...

I took the stone soup challenge today. What a great idea the talented Laura Bray had. Inspired by the story "Stone Soup", she is asking fellow artists and crafters to put aside a percentage of their net sales each month and purchase something from another artist. She is creating a grass roots movement with the idea that if everybody contributes a little something we will all feast! Click here to join the challenge or click on the Stone Soup Challenge button on the sidebar.
On a business note...I will be listing fun little journals this week as well as some more spring goodies! Happy Shopping!

Vintage Treasures...

Here are some of my favorite vintage treasures that I have had boxed up for a while. I think they want to be displayed now. They are all from my childhood. The little armoir and baby cradle were well loved. My first doll has seen better days, but she's still cute to me. {My little girl loves to play with her now} The little ceramic girl was given to me by my favorite aunt before she passed and I still love her even though some of the flowers are chipped. And my little squeeky dog is just too adorable! I hope you'll be inspired to get out those vintage goodies where you can see them everyday...Have fun!!!

Back to Business...

For those of you who didn't know...we moved last weekend. I HATE moving, but I LOVE pulling out my old treasures that I keep boxed up and don't get to see too often. Now I'm rethinking that concept. I'll share some pix later of some treasures I'm thinking of displaying. Well the moving is done so I'm just trying to get back to "normal" whatever that is...I did manage to list some new old stash in the shop. I'll be busy the next few days making some more paper goodies. Have a beautiful, magical day! xoxo
