Moving From Summer to Fall

I enjoy this time of year. When you start to know that school is coming and things will have an order. Don't get me wrong I love summer weather and I love the flexibility that it brings. But with organization I get more work done, and of course that means more wonderful products to share with all of you!

I have many ideas in mind and can't wait to "get them out". One purse idea came early and I was excited to get it listed. Fall brings the ideas out in me and gets me inspired. I love mixing the turquoise, brown and orange and can't wait to incorporate that into a purse soon!

When fall comes where you live, do you feel a change or do things stay the same?

What inspires you?

Hello! I hope this finds you having a great Friday! Yesterday as I was making a treasury for Etsy, I couldn't help but notice all the amazing artists that we have in our midst daily! As I scrolled through to find that perfect picture to make the perfect treasury I felt myself getting ideas just scrolling through my head, and they wouldn't stop. Almost as if a faucet had been turned on and the lever broke. My favorite part was that none of the art that inspired me was "my art", it was just beautiful work.
Recently, I was asked what inspired me, and I said nature and the world around me, but I think yesterday what inspired me were other artists and all that is presented with that. Color, texture, beauty, etc. So next time you are feeling like you want to be inspired and you don't know where to find it, try walking through other artists shops, either online or in person, and see what happens!

Have a wonderful day everyone, stay creative and ask yourself: What inspires you?

Featured Etsy Shop Of The Day!


I have been on Etsy for about a year and a half. In that time I have met so many talented artists! Including the person I am going to share with you today! Easybaby or Easy123 are two shops with one talented artist! In her shops you will find beautiful scarves, hats, household items, and many other items! Another great thing about Easy is her dedication to Breast Cancer Awareness! She has items in her 123 shop that are dedicated to cancer awareness and can be purchased for charity! She is a tender hearted woman that takes pride in her work and will only
use quality materials to crochet or knit her items! Please take a moment to "walk" through her shops and find something that fits your personality!

Thank you so much for taking a minute and looking through this wonderful shop! Watch for other features! Have a great day and stay creative!

Starting Over from the End

As many of you may have tried and succeeded in keeping up with your blog....I have not. So I have decided to "start over" in many ways. This is one. So over the coming weeks I am going to have new thoughts and ideas to throw out there. One is that I am going to feature different sellers on Etsy either daily or weekly, depends how fast I can learn how to add pictures, text, html, and links. I am sure I will get the hang of it.

Have a look around and make sure to follow me so that for the future you will learn of some great Etsy shops!!

Have a great day!
