Trying something new

As you know, I am a big fan of etsy.com. I love all of the tools that it has, not just for sellers, but for buyers as well. One of the tools that they use for buyers is the treasury. Members find the things that they love (usually in a theme) and post them as a group in the treasury. This is a great idea. So great, in fact, that the treasury is usually full. 
So I am taking matters into my own hand. I am going to be posting a mini-treasury (complete with themes). My plan is to post four lovelies that I have found. I hope to make them creative and fun. And if you have ideas for things you would like to see, let me know!
I thought it would be best if my first was something you all know I truly love: CUPCAKES. Enjoy!

While I Gather My thoughts.

We have spent the weekend working in the yard. We now have two Hubby made raised beds, and a brand new compost bin that he made as well. I made a rock garden in the awkward space between trees, or started to anyway, as things still are chaotic back there. We planted seeds and a few flowers. We also bought a little greenhouse to start the seeds in! I am so excited about that. And I can say for the first time since moving into this house I can see how things might shake out.
So, please enjoy these photos from my weekend

I am having a sale in the shop. Take sometime and take a peak. This guy is $5off and ready to go to a good home!

Happy Valentines Day

My hubby and I celebrated on Friday. A lovely Indian dinner and some silly games. It was very fun.

For you, I have photos of the valentines that I made for Little Bit. They are darling little ladybug cards that could easily double as bookmarks. They were a big hit. I also made a more elegant, grownup version with sequins for eyes and embroidery thread antenna. 

Have a wonderful day full of love and loved-ones

Some new stuff in the shop!

I posted some new brooches in the shop. I hope they take off. 
Also take a peek at this paper brooch. That's right, paper. Dyed paper is sealed and stiffened then placed on fusible interfacing. Makes for a sturdy brooch that is certainly different.
Also, for those of you on Facebook, I added a fan page.  Please feel free to add and to share. That is a great place to learn more about what we are doing in the shop.
