Lucky Me!

I know, behind again. My kids have been sick since last FRIDAY. Seriously. Can I get a break please? :) I think we are all on the mend now and both little guys are off to school tomorrow - for the first time this week! Good thing - my youngest little man turns 2 tomorrow and I have a birthday party to get ready for on Saturday! Nothing like the last minute... :)

Oh, on another note, I WON something last week! That NEVER happens to me! I rarely enter giveaways anymore because I never win. seriously. never. win. So anyway, I did, and I still can't believe I won! It's the cutest basket, from the cutest Etsy Seller (put together with a bunch of little goodies from various sellers), full of prizes! YEA! Check out Kelsey's adorable shop, Poofy Cheeks and her super fun blog here. Here's a pic of the Easter Basket (photo by Kelsey, Poofy Cheeks):

Tuesday Happys!

In the last few weeks, I've discovered teams on Etsy. What a great way to interact with others in your category (or interest, region, whatever - there are teams for EVERYTHING), get and offer support, and meet other sellers! Recently, I joined the Etsy Kids team, which is full of very talented people, specializing in the Children's category. Today's happys are some of the fun new things I've discovered made by other Etsy Kids team members. Enjoy, and thanks Etsy Kids for a warm welcome to the team! :)

Minky Fabric = Lovey

Fabric has overtaken my house. I have a real problem - I just love to buy it! My husband is concerned it's going to land me on Hoarders someday (kidding of course), but seriously - I have TOO MUCH fabric, and it's therefore in multiple storage boxes in multiple areas of my house! So my youngest, who is *almost* two (sniff,sniff) is very attached to his loveys. He calls them "double" - no idea where that came from, but we just go with it. ;) Anyway, all of his "doubles" are made with minky, and so anytime he finds ANY of my minky fabric, he runs off with it... I'm forever finding minky scraps all over the house, and he's forever increasing his stash of loveys.

Guess that means I should find a better hidden storage solution. :)

The return of Tuesday Happys!

With a STAR theme! :) I love all of these items, but I think the first one (10 in groovy baby barn star by LilMissCraftyPants) is my absolutely favorite! I'm considering buying one of these for my little guy's room - SO CUTE!! Enjoy!

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (and a Giveaway!)

Wow - this week has FLOWN by! And finally, we have some NICE Spring-like weather. Sunny and 65 - doesn't get much better than that! :) I realize I totally missed Tuesday Happys. I realized it somewhere around Thursday. And decided "Thursday Happys" didn't have the same ring to it! One thing, if you have an Etsy shop and have something you want me to feature in Tuesday Happys, let me know, I might be able to build a theme around it! :) Leave me a comment if you are interested.

Second, I have another GIVEAWAY going on! This one is being hosted by Ashley Ann, who has a WONDERFUL blog called "Under the Sycamore" full of creativity and just great stuff all around. It's a short one - ends tomorrow night, so run on over and enter to win a Swaddle Blanket! Yea! This one has been really fun as she's local! She has a great following my area, and on Etsy all around.

A Shameless Plea for Votes! :)

I know, I know, it's Tuesday and there's no happys. :) I promise they are coming tomorrow... It's just been a crazy week (Several Sales - YEA! Finally!).

I entered a challenge with a "LUCKY" or St. Paddy's Day theme for the Busy Moms of Etsy team (which is an awesome team BTW, really enjoying it!)... Anyway, they are conducting a vote on the Etsy forums this week on the items entered. I guess I didn't realize I had to campaign for votes as right now I'm like the only one with NONE! So here it is, my plea for just one vote. Just so I don't look completely worthless. And anyone with an Etsy login can vote. Just saying. :) I'm #18.

And if you vote for me, leave me a comment! I'd be glad to return the favor someday!
