Cute clothes!

How cute are these little girl clothes! Amievoltaire is a fellow Twitter team member and she makes the most adorable outfits. I love the colors and patterns of the fabric she uses.

What little girl wouldn't love to twirl in this skirt?

Our new family member!

Introducing our newest family member! His name is Smokey and he's almost 10 weeks old. He was my Mother's Day present this year.
It's been a long time since we've had a kitten in the house. I had forgotten how cute they are. I'd also forgotten how annoying they are! He got a manicure tonight so hopefully I won't be covered in little scratches anymore.
Our older kitty, Killian, is tolerating him alright. Although, he does give me these sad looks that seem to say "Why? Why did you do this to me?"
The kids are completely enthralled with him. Even my husband, who really did not want another cat, is taken with him. Me, I'm totally in love!

Fun Finds on Etsy!

I had planned on doing featured sellers posts on here but I just never seemed to get around to it. So, I'm going to start doing Fun Finds, just things that catch my eye that I find on Etsy. Here's hoping I can remember!

Up first, rubber stamps by AsspocketProductions. I know, the name cracks me up! There's a great story behind how this shop came to be called that, it's in her Profile. Great stamps, very unique!

Next up, buttonsbyrobin. I found these beautiful buttons because Robin has joined my Embellishments group on Flickr. I'm so glad she did! I'm so drawn to the birds but she has tons of designs and they are all as beautiful.

My best Etsy week ever

I have had an amazing week on Etsy. I'm so thankful for everything that has happened this week. I'm still a little stunned by it all.

It started with a 7 item sale on Sunday. That's the biggest number of items I've had in one sale. Then I found out that my Mini File Folders were in this Monday Morning treasury

On Tuesday, I found myself in 2 pretty treasuries. My You've Got My Heart All Laced Up card in this one

and Melody the Fancy Bird in this one
As if that wasn't enough, I then found out that my Mini File Folders were picked for the Teen Gift Guide on Etsy. The Gift Guides are picked by Admin and are pretty highly coveted. I can see why, since I relisted them on April 29th and to date, they've had 342 views and 15 item hearts. I'm pretty sure that they were picked because of their appearance in the Monday Morning treasury. I just about passed out when I saw them in the Gift Guide.

Also on Tuesday, both of the Mother's Day cards that I had listed sold. I normally only have 2-3 sales a month so to have 2 in the same week made my head spin.

On Thursday, my Roses Are Red card was picked for this romantic red treasury

And I got a convo about a custom order of my Mini File Folders that lead to another sale. This has been, by far, my best Etsy week ever. It will be hard to ever top this week.

Thank you to all the treasury makers for thinking my items are good enough for your beautiful treasuries. Thank you to the admin who picked my file folders for the Gift Guide. Thank you to my customers this week. You've all helped make this my best Etsy week ever and I am humbled.
