A nice surprise in the mail :)

Recently I came across a very nice gal, while working on Etsygiveaways, Cat the sweet owner of Polarity and Uncorked on Etsy. She thought to send me "a little something" (her words not mine!) to thank me for my time on posting giveaways.
Although I was expecting something in my mail, I'll never thought to be so pleased.
Here, look for yourself and see what she sent me:

I'm amazed of the quality of this locket and the care in details that Cat puts in her creations like the gracious round tin to store your locket and the extra lids.
Cat really makes items for every taste and style, my favorite are the definitions lockets,I love the idea and the concept behind them !

And she also makes coordinate earrings, bracelets, rings, key rings.

Polarity lockets are recycled from a little auto part that with the help of some amazing little magnetic lids turns one necklace into many!

Cat is also behind a very cool blog, Olive bites where she's having a fabulous giveaway Definitely worth it to check it out!
So what do you think?? Did you enjoy see her creations??? Go check her out, her lockets make a very thoughtful gift some that special someone hard to buy for and Christmas is just around the corner!!

Tonight My heart is just full of happiness and joy even tho I'm still fighting a bad stomachache.
This morning I woke receiving more love from the "Shops with less than 10 sales" blog from the ArtFire guild and I couldn't be more pleased. The members of the guild are awesome, especially the moderator, Kim, is such a sweetum.
Sales are picking up and I'm preparing myself for the holiday rush....can't wait!
But enough talking about me!
All of you, or at least most of you, know that I'm working really closely with Michele, Sweet Irie owner especially on her....ahemm our blog. I own her so much in so many ways and I really wish I can met her in real life and squeeze her with all my love.
But even tho, we haven't me yet, we virtually hang out together as much as we can trying to know as much as possible about each other and few days ago she showed me her portofolio. Not only she makes the best sewed goodies that I've ever seen, that are so perfect that you can't even tell it's "handmade" (see picture above!), but he sweet hands and her amazing brain can create the most wonderful design like this:

Or this beautiful portrait of herself:

But those are really just a small example of what you can see in her portofolio all made by Michele by scratch!!!
Isn't she talented?? What do you think??

Wonderful weekend!!

I was busy busy but I had fun!
Yesterday I had my second test for my Child Care Training and I'll have my results by Tuesday.
But the most exciting thing is that I found out I was featured on "Shop with less than 10 sales" blog and I was very pleased to woke up to 2 sales on my ArtFire studio.
The earring in the pictures of this post belongs to an amazing artist, Donna at Twitterbird Creations, that is currectly featured on the guild's blog and is running a wonderful promotion in her shop.

And today I indulged in a wonderful summery Sunday with my family and the pool in my back yard. This time I have proof: enjoy the pictures :)

And my exit on the highway I'm traveling is......

In the last post I was sharing with you all the wonderful places that I'm discovering to promote my business.
So, last time I talked about Etsy Codes.
This time I'm gonna show everybody Handmade Highway. The owner of the blog, Lori, is doing an amazing job and I think she created a new way to promote handmade artisans.
For a small yearly fee, you too can have your exit on the handmade highway, aka a little etsy mini to represented your shop, with lots of links and useful info about your self and your business.

This is how my exit looks like:

If you're interested in info on how about to get your very own exit on the handmade highway, here where to find all the info.
Lori is very easy to walk with and I'm very happy I did. She's also the owner of a beautiful etsy shop, riskybeads with excellent, awesome jewelry.

Featuring Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

It's time for a new feature and a new crocheted: Debbie at Girls Just Wanna HaveFun

Spa Wash Cloths - Set of Three, $9

Let's know this sweet sweet girl a little better:

I am a married working mom with two great children. I learned to crochet in Girl Scouts when I was twelve years old and to knit in college. I love to crochet, am out of control really. It's a good thing!

Fingerless Bath Mitt, $7

I am also involved in two different church ministries:
BBPC Prayer Shawl Group: we make and distribute shawls to the terminally ill, the sick, a new mom, for the bride to be, or just for friends who may need to be wrapped in prayer. I have been involved with this group for over two years and have made and donated five shawls.I wish it were more but I need 48 hrs in a day to do all I want to get done. We meet once a month to bless the shawls. It's very rewarding. At the time I found the group I was looking for something, a way to give back and be a good example to my daughters. I want them to give freely of their time and to help others in need, and they do. They have become more compassionate to the elderly, sick, and people in general. I also belong to Saving Stiches which I joined a short time after.

Cabbage Rose Bookmark, $5

I have made scarves, hats, blankets and baby booties to name a few items, which are then distributed to organizations around the world. I have met great friends thru both these groups.
We are trying to live a good life and crocheting and crafts is just part of it.

Blueberry Passion Spa Set, $7

Debbie is trying her hand at blogging and you can read her attempts at Obsessed with Crochet.
Her shop banner and avatar, as well as her blog design are the amazing work of my very best friend Michele, the owner of Sweet Irie. I think she did an amazing job, what do you all think???
