My first seller is FigsandGinger. This is a couple-run Etsy shop with the most precious sterling silver pieces I've ever seen! My favourite out have to be the Forest Fawn Ring. I really want it! (A nice huge hint out to friends and family who might be reading this hee hee). I'm also pretty fond of their Forest Fawn Earrings.

First up are some lovely lampwork beads by BleuVerre, a Christmas set. The craftsmanship is spectacular, and honestly - Christmas gifts don't have to be an actual, finished product. I can just image the look on a jewelry-artist's face if they were to receive these beautiful beads on Christmas morning! I also really like her purple, turquoise and lime beadset as well!
Or, why not make something out of them for a loved one? This gift would be 100% handmade up to the material that you lace these beads on. Gifts filled with thought are always the best! :o)
My next item is a Pink Fawn Softie from the Christmas section of FantasticToys' shop on Etsy. This toy is so adorable, and reminds me of the Rudolf classic by Rankin. (My boyfriend actually got me a singing Rudolf from that show for Christmas last year as a last minute surprise - it made my Christmas! AND it's the only Christmas item that I let sit out allllll year long! :o)
This would be a great gift for either an adult of child, although FantasticToys has stressed in her description, that it may not be suitable for small children, and that it is not baby safe.
FantasticToys also offers a free downloadable mobile pattern featuring his items (a $2.00 donation can be made if you so choose). Now how kind, cheery and Christmas like is that!?
My next item is a wonderfully delicious one! It's Winter Candy Apple Vegan Soap by Flameworks. The description sounds like the perfect pick-me-up to any blah-winter-day; not that they are many, hehe: "A light fruity blend of pineapples, oranges, red apples, lemons and limes with mild floral hints of jasmine, rose, violet and lily of the valley" - now doesn't that sound good enough to eat?!
Flameworks also offers a great deal with the purchase of any 3 soaps - who can refuse a deal? Especially one that smells' so good?
Christmas House 2 is a gorgeous mixed media painting by mtjoyschool run by Debora, based on Pennsylvania.
Her wonderfully distinctive pieces would make a beautiful addition to any room during the Holiday seasons!
I really love the use of the various techniques in her work as well: collage, texture, gold. It makes for a very interesting conversation pieces - anyone who owns this I'm sure will get many compliments while entertaining.
My last piece for today's entry, I have this beautiful Holiday Kismet, named Bernerd to share with you! Sewn up by seekconnectlove in Arizona, Bernerd would love to be sent to your home for some holiday loving!
They also have another Kismet in their shop, Prudence, who has a piece of holly in her hair.

The are created by artist Noreen A. Finn, also know as BirdonaFernStudio on Etsy, who is also a very talented painter and print maker.
These little cell phone cozies are based on animals, made out of felt, and 'zipper' open to put your cell phone in a soft, fuzzy inside. Not only is it adorable cute, but the inside must most definitely protect your phone!

Rachel uses the concept of aerial photography and simple shapes, creating a unique and original abstract and artful transcription of the farming world. She uses the concepts of crop circles and land grids, sometimes incorporating tiny houses and farms into the pieces as well.

I love the intricate details of Chelsea’s work, and how she incorporates painting into her mixed media pieces. I can only image the time, effort and love that gets put into every piece.
The patterned papers that she uses are just gorgeous, and add a wonderful element to her artwork! They are so bright, colourful and happy!
I’m proud to say, that her White Bellies print is on its way to one of my walls – I can’t wait!
Chelsea also has a website featuring her portfolio work.

Oh, and I've added a new section to my blog on the right (-->>). I've come across so many wonderful Indie sites and blogs, and just cute dyi places. So I thought that I'd spread the love and make a "Sites That I've Grown to Love" section for them. (It's also makes it easy for me to check them on different computers where I don't have them bookmarked; a little love for you and a little love for me hee hee).
I got my soaps and bracelets in the mail this past week from Etsy as well.
My bracelet was by lorelei1141. It's so lovely....I'm wearing it right now as I type hee hee. Her shop whole shop is very lovely as well :o)
I also got my soap from soapalooza. It's a very nice size, and smells delicious - I almost want to eat it!! It bubbles up (suds up in technical, non-cutesy terms) very well too. I'm very happy with my choice to replace my store bought body wash with yummy homemade soap.
Both of them came wrapped up all pretty. It was like getting presents in the mail! And now, who doesn't like that?! :o)
Psst....I have an amazing Etsy feature coming up - I'm just waiting for the seller to convo me back with the ok-go-ahead. So check back, because I'm dying to share it with you!!!

She used wire, various stones, pearls and beads to create her pieces.Nina also has a blog, myspace, and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org

Also, I've started listing ATC / ACEO's of my prints, available here. There are still more to come. I'm just listing them gradually. But if there's any print you would like to see as an ATC, then please let me know!
Lastly, I received my order from boulderglassmonkey today, and I'm super excited!! It was a gorgeous pair of purple earrings, that have a dash of funk to them with the metal swirl at the bottom.
