Check it Out!

I have a long list of blogs that I follow and one of my favorites is The Roots & Feathers blog. I love Laura's jewelry, her style, and her photos are really lovely and have a magical feeling about them.

She is doing a give-a-way on her blog. It's not her own jewelry, but is gifting one lucky person a pretty scarf from the store Gaia Conceptions.

I LOVE these clothes!

Anyways-check out the give-a-way here and enter to win.

On another note- Here are a few new things I just finished up.

Two handmade leather pouches that slip onto your belt.

Tooled leather peacock bracelet (SOLD)

And probably the cutest thing I have ever made-A tiny furry stuffed animal for my niece.

Etsy Shops I Love

Christmas is coming soon and that means Christmas shopping! I wanted to share an Etsy shop that I LOVE and think would be a great choice for someone who has everything. Trust me-they don't have one of these.
It's called Wearable Planter. Check out the shop here

These mini planters are the cutest! What a fun idea too!
I had to buy one of the planter necklaces because I love miniature stuff. I haven't planted anything in mine yet, but I will be soon.

Do you have any favorite shops (not just etsy) where you like to find unique presents?

A few of my other favorite Etsy shops (I sell on etsy, but I actually love shopping on there more than selling).

Girlie Pains- Super cute printable stuff. It's hard to explain. Just check out the link. You will die of cuteness overload!

Run With The Tribe- To be honest, I am not so sure I could pull off wearing these clothes, but I love them and I love the whole vibe of this shop. I like that she hand sews every garment and I love her simple earthy jewelry.

All Things Pretty- The name of the shop says it all. Super unique beautiful things.

Maybe I will show you a few more of my favorites on there in the future. I have lots of favorites...

Sunday Offerings

It's Sunday evening and I have been working the past couple of hours on my etsy shop trying to get it re-opened after it's been closed for like 2 months! I have been making several new things and the more I made, the more overwhelming it felt trying to start the process of entering everything into etsy. I don't know why, but I just really dislike the process of taking all the photos, uploading, adjusting if necessary, writing descriptions, and so on. I just love to make and that is about it. I do enjoy selling at craft shows though.

Here are a few new things I have made:

Last year I made doll necklaces for all my nieces and they really liked them. I also painted several custom dolls based off photos of people's kids and with Christmas coming I thought it would be fun to offer these 3 in my etsy shop.

This is a necklace I made about a month ago. It is the first time I got to use the fancy bezel wire. The stone is a moonstone and I love the color of the beads. Reminds me of a tropical ocean.

The two pictures above are handmade copper pendants with clear resin and a preserved leaf. They are both strung on long 30" leather cords.

I recently bought a large piece of vegetable tanned leather that has inspired me to make some leather projects. I am currently working on 2 medium sized purses, two little belt pouches, and a leather and turquoise bracelet. I haven't worked with leather in a long while and it feels nice to be playing around with it again.

All of these items are for sale in my Etsy shop if you happen to be interested. :)
