Some updates and another fabulous find!

I've added advertising to the blog so that we can help each other out...The rates are insanely cheap, starting at $.20 per week with discounts for long-term ads!! There are two areas to advertise right now, on the top of the left sidebar with a 125x125 button and at the bottom of the page with a 468x60 banner ad. PayPal is accepted for advertising : ))

Now that that's done, on to the fun stuff! Here's my latest fabulous find!! This one comes from Made It Myself. For those of you not familiar with this site, it's an Etsy-type site, still in it's infancy and they are offering FREE listing and selling!!

This lovely gem just popped off the homepage at me this morning! I just love the eye catching colors, as well as the fact that it has pink and green, my own personal favorite color combo at the moment!!

The talented designer of this bag is Hulla, be sure to check out her shop and see her other totally awesome bags!!

Have a fabulous day and be creative!!

Today's Fabulous Finds and Another New Creation

I have to tell you...I just love Etsy...the artisans on there are just so darn talented!! I love to just browse the site and look for awesome new stuff!

Well, that's just what I was doing this morning, and look at what I found!!

This beautiful cushion is from the shop of ColoursOfLuke. I just love that sage green screenprinted panel in the center. I think, once I get my craft room organized and get my living room back, I may have her make me a couple of these to match my new living room furniture : ))

By the way, ColoursOfLuke is a brand new shop, looking for their first sale, so be sure to check them out and give them some love! Here is the shop link:

Now, on to some new creations of my own...In my last post, I mentioned I had purchased the wall banner from Five Star Fonts...well, while I was there, I saw this amazing double applique "School Rocks" pattern...and I thought it would look so cute on a tote bag for Back to School!! Well, here's the finished product:

I also did a couple on black totes that aren't "girly girl" can check them all out in my shop HERE. I'm hoping later today to have time to put this on a t-shirt...I think it would be awesome!!

I hope you all have a great day and have fun creating!!

Some Great Finds and New Projects!

I was making one of my frequent visits to Shabby Bags the other day and I found this lovely bag that Jan recently added to her gallery. I just love her bags...they are so well constructed and her use of patterns is just awesome!

I urge you to go visit her. Not only does she have her own website, but she also has an Etsy shop as well as a shop on Made It Myself!

And I actually got the opportunity to do some creating this weekend....I bought this cute wall/door banner from Five Star Fonts and couldn't wait to make it up!!

This particular one is for my granddaughter who will be 9 in a couple of weeks!!

If you're interested in one for your favorite girly girl, you can place your order HERE
