Monday: A Pink Elephant's Staring at Me!

Oh How Cute You Are! Do a Little Spin, Show Us Some More!
My, What a Nice Trunk!
Look at the Weeny Tail! Oh How Cute!

I finally finished it! One of the only good things about insomnia is that it lets me finish mindless tasks while relaxing a bit and watching movies. Last night was one of those insomniac nights, and "The Other Boleyn Girl" was on and I wanted desperately to finish the elephant to show you all, so I did it!
Now I'm going to start a sock monkey for my friend Louise of Fireseed fame, and maybe an octopus for her delightful cat Raff :)
I do also, of course, have plans for more jewellery, so keep checking for new items! Make sure you've entered the January Contest of the Month to win a great prize, see the post from January 3 for details.

I Got Another Treasury!

This is getting to be a habit - and I LOVE it! I was just checking the treasuries this evening and I happened to get there when they opened up so I got one with little waiting - so wonderful. This time I was able to showcase artists from Etsy for Animals (EFA), Capital Crafters, and CASTTEAM (Christian Artists of Etsy). How exciting! Please click on the image above and visit the treasury to see these very talented artists up close.

I'm in a treasury!

What a fabulous way to wake up: I got an email from RioRita all the way over in Israel telling me that she had featured my Backlit Bleeding Hearts Photograph in her treasury! I have to say I am on cloud nine as I have been trying and trying to get another treasury since the last one expired almost 2 weeks ago, and have consistently failed to get one. I think it is amazing that people from all over the world are able to get together and promote one another's works - simply fabulous!! Please click on the treasury above to go and see all the wonderful artists featured in this beautiful treasury :)
P.S. - time's running out to enter the monthly blog contest - don't miss out, it is free and you could win a great prize!

Thoughtful Thursday

I was going to do a quick blurb about online marketing and networking tools, but this popped up and I had to show you!
I was on Mishkat's blog this morning, just clicking away, when I saw her post on "The
Story of Stuff
". It intrigued me. I am always trying to figure out how to be more efficient, more frugal (one of my favorite words, said with a Scottish accent), but I didn't know all that Annie Leonard had to say. If you click on the image above, you'll go to the site where there is a video on "The Story of Stuff". It'll get you thinking. While I don't agree with everything she says, it makes a really good set of points about how we live our lives in a disposable manner. Check it out, you'll be glad you did :)
We need to be conscious consumers. We need to think about why we are purchasing the items we want. We need to pay what the items actually cost, and stop thinking that cheap, disposable, toxic products from giant factories making children work long hours is okay.
Buy responsibly. Buy handmade. Buy consciously!
Okay, today's sermon is over!
