Featuring Risky Beads

Ok reader, as I pre announced in a previous post, I'm here to tell you about some nice trades that I worked out for Christmas gift. Here to you the first one: Risky beads.
I met Lori a while ago when I was looking for some inexpensive way to promote my shop and joined the Handmade Highway and thought I'm not really into jewelry I fell in love with her creations, specially her necklaces and pendants.

I LOVE the fact the every necklace has a name, the one above is "Eye of the Storm". Isn't it gorgeous with all those colors and the luxurious organza ribbons and leather cord??
Also, all the jewelry are extra unique because they come with a little poem, a specific story that is unique for every piece.

This one for instance is called "Mermaid autopsy" and the story behind recite: "Say what you want, but clearly she loved the sea more than the handsome prince. Just look at all that emotion for the ocean".
I don't know about you, but I found this little story very evocative, give me the impression to buy far more that a pendant!
Beside necklaces and pendants, Lori also sells gorgeous earrings (very reasonable priced), original nurse Purses, bracelets, bookmarks and key chains and her Etsy guide like this one:

I find it very useful and give me a little push for big decision that I took recently!(more on this topic soon!)
She's also destashing her supplies at Risky Stash and has a very interesting blog where My cupcakes were feature few days ago.
Well, I hope you enjoyed knowing Lori as much as I did!
And sty tuned for my next trade/feature :)

Sunday personal post

It's Sunday again and it's time for a personal post.
I had a super sweet awakening this morning: I woke up from my kids kisses and hugs! Super sweet I say!

Here the last updates:

1- Gabriel Status: We got rid of the yukky medication (and the doctor whom prescribed them!) and Gabriel is improving a lot! He's able to focus more at school and in his homework and the teacher is gonna start him on writing in smaller print soon. He's enjoy his soccer practice tremendously and the diet is giving terrific results: he's now eating more and more variety, even food that he rejected before!!! I'm so proud of my little guy :)

2- I worked out a nice trade and I won a super duper giveaway: Stay tuned to read more about it.

3- I did something really hmmmm good for my business but kinda of scary too: Under the direction of my super best friend Michele at Sweet Irie. But this will be another blog post LOL

Featuring: PurrPrints

Click For Contest
Oh my, have I neglected my pour blog lately! Not good! But I'm finally here to introduce you to another amazing seller: PurrPrints.
As some of you already know, I joined the crew of Etsy Giveaways a while ago, but contrary to what somebody thinks, that adorable and useful blog it's not completely mine. I love it and cherish like mine, but the real fonder is Becca, alias PurrPrints.
She really know what she saying and doing about giveaways and I wanted to share with you some tips that she posted on her blog. If you have questions about giveaways or how to go about doing one, I really recommend you all to read her post.
And if you are a pro and would like to share your tips with us, please join this forum thread: we'll appreciate your feedback!

Kitty Love Print 5 x 5 - Customizable colors, sizes - $10

I'm taking the time to feature all the people in the Etsy crew, but wanted to start with her since she's really amazing and her work are awesome and I must say even tho her category it's really hard to sell, she's doing wonderfully!

Build your own Pendant. - $18

In her etsy shop you'll find prints of different dimensions, cards, pendants, magnets and ACEO all with a cat-theme!
I personally love cats and I find her style very elegant and chic, yet really colorful and playful, don't you think?

Enjoy knowing Becca a little better from her profile:

I love cats and ink, and I never agreed with the idea that all cat artwork must look like mass-produced cracker-barrel-style kitchiness. I use a combination of hand-drawn, digital, and print techniques to produce my range of work; I also create cat-free artwork, viewable in the "art without cats" section of the store (but shh, don't tell my kitties I'm not always drawing them).

Though etsy is my main love (I adore handmade!), I do have shops at cafepress and zazzle as well to sell items I simply can't make yet on my own. You can visit those by going to and

I'm also an eager blogger who always drops back in on commenters and EntreCard droppers; you can see my musings on cats, art, crafts, and occasional random asides at

Teams I'm an excited member of:
*Etsy for Animals*--I periodically donate items to their charity shop at
*SquidEtsy*--you can learn more about this team, of which I am a co-founder, at
*Freethinkers* -- see cool team goodies at
*Cruelty Free Etsy* -- check out the team blog at for great ideas on where to shop for cruelty-free items.
*Bluegrass Etsy* -- a Kentucky-based street team
*Etsy Bloggers* -- visit them at

Ooo--and be sure to check out my hubby's photos at

NOTE FOR SILK-SCREENERS: I'm also hoping to find a fabric artist on here who might want to partner with me on turning my designs into pillows--I know a few places that would like to sell them, but I'm hopeless as a silk-screener!

A Little bit personal....

All right, a little personal update and then tomorrow I will feature my fave again!
Some of you know that I'm fighting with all my power with my son autism. Today I'm a little bit discouraged, I have the feeling that the doctor that has my son in care is know the best I can get. He's keeping stuffing my son with meds that are not doing any good and are drying up our finance heavenly. I'm afraid I will have to call him tomorrow and let him have a piece of my mind.....shave those pills down your throat and leave my son alone!

Ok, now that I'm done whining about life, I wanna tell you all that I'm really grateful that my dear friend Michele at Sweet Irie is back home and doing better after an emergency surgery. She scared me to death, but my prayers worked and she's back to her own self.

Also, I take this time to remember you all that there is a wonderful giveaway going on at Sweet Irie blog! be sure to check it out!

Featuring Cutiestuffs Part II

As pre-announced in the previous post featuring Cutiestuffs, today I'm gonna show you all how I'm using the cover buttons that I bought from her.
First of all I covered my buttons:
It took me a while to get them look like I want them. They are really easy to make and Agnes also has a very useful link on her blog to show you how to make them, but I just seem to have 2 left hands LOL
But once I made a couple, the following came out much better! So I added them to my creations:

Crocheted and beaded cupcake OPENABLE ONE Christmas tree ornament, $10

What do you think???? YAY or NAY??

Crocheted cupcake lip balm/cream holder LARGE, $10

I also want to highlight that cutiestuffs products are available on Etsy as well as on ArtFire.
And while you're at it, follow Agnes on twitter and facebook to keep up with specials sales and promotions!
