Check out this cool site! Every week Amy features different etsy stores to promote. She's done a fantastic job setting it all up so please go and have a look.

Here is my treasury

Monday, November 10, 2008

Today was nearly good

This morning I nabbed a treasury-, found out I was in a treasury- and I think I am still second in the artisans challenge. Really great things until I find out the car is going to coat $3000 to fix!!! What a way to ruin your day- I can think of so much more to spend that on!! Oh well it happens. My treasury is gorgeous, I think so any way. It's all pink and pretty and well priced too.

Woo hoo!

I'm second at the moment behind a wonderful painting by Debra linker - it is amazing and don't expect to get the votes she has. I don't mind though it's exciting just being in there with such wonderful talent. Rod has an brilliant blog with heaps of spaces for free or paid advertising go and have a peek- it's worth your time.


I have just updated my store at DaWanda. I've been a member for a little while but hadn't done much to it. It's a great site similar to etsy - somethings are easier to navigate, some things aren't as good but it is well worth a look. There are some great items for sale, a lot of etsy sellers are already over there. Click on my avatar for a link to my store there. Thanks and have a nice day

Artisans challenge-repeat

I'm still coming second!

The beer mug is just yellow wrapped lollies with marshmallows on top. The umbrella is a square of fabric filled with lavender and tied up, a bent pipe cleaner is the handle. I glued photos to the back of glass pebbles and added decoration then glued magnets to the back.

Easy Christmas decorations and gifts for kids to make. The puddings are made from a bought fruit cake mixed with enough orange juice to make it moist enough to roll into balls, then either drizzle icing on top or cut plastic icing to shape.
I dripped clear glue on the top of the glass ball and then sprinkled micro beads over it and hung it to dry. The ornaments were made from cinnamon sticks glued or tied together.

Peek at my book

A few months ago I decided to make a book of kids craft ideas. I have finished it and it's all ready for printing with proceeds going to The 1st Millicent Scout Group. The crafts are for all ages and include gifts, bedroom decorations and games. I thought today I would give you a peek at some of the things in it. Please let me know what you think and what needs to be changed etc.

T.V. in the bathroom?

I don't have a television in my bathroom! I'm sorry to spoil your images of a bathroom set up with everything including a t.v. but I take the portable dvd player in there with me and sit it on a kitchen chair next to the bath!

Tag you're it

Hi for Tuesday. I have had a few people laugh about my old movies in the bath comment-obviously I'm the only one who has done it! It really is great. I get bored just laying there so I either read or watch a movie. Big bubbles and candles with Pretty woman playing is just pure bliss! Having a good cry in a warm, quiet bath with a sloppy movie is great therapy and I recommend it to all of you.

Tag, you're it.

I've just been tagged by cut*copy*create. I had no idea what that meant! so I had to go looking before I could respond :)
Here are the rules:
Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
Share seven facts about yourself on your blog – some random, some weird.
Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving names and links to their blogs.
Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.
So here are my seven random things
1:I live in Australia
2:I have an etsy shop
3:I am a chocoholic and don't share it with anyone
4:I am addicted to craft-any type and have it all over the house even though I have my own craft room!
5:I like to watch old movies while I'm in the bath
6:I would rather go to the beach with my kids than do housework
7:I hate having my photo taken because the wrinkles show how old I am and I only feel 18!
That was a bit of fun! Now I'm off to tag seven other poor unsuspecting bloggers.
