HTML Goddess

Well, maybe not quite the goddess of HTML; but I do surprise myself with that I can do with trial and error. It's not like I did anything major either...I just made my table wider because I didn't like it so contained....I like to stttrreettcch things out a little tee heee. I'm not completely done either. Because of my little blog stretch, I have to adjust my banner - but I'm on a computer at work that doesn't do that. *sigh* Oh well,.....I guess it'll just have to wait until tomorrow.

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!!!

A little piece of sky...

A little piece of sky, is what Bree Lundberg calls her adorable paintings of clouds. Bree run a store on Etsy, CheeseCakeBree, where in addition to her sky paintings, she has photography, beadwork, watercolor, mixed media and illustrations.

Painted with acrylic on canvas - she captures the purity and beauty of the sky. I simply love the concept and I think it's brilliant!

Bree also has a website, where her portfolio is displayed: Art by Bree Lundberg

Follow the Yellow Brick Road!

So...my crazy busy week is finally over (only to start up again this weekend boooooo). But I did get some artwork done! I painted a cute little ACEO, and a Christmas card - I'll be listing the Christmas card later, because I forgot the paper with the size / paper type stats at home :o(

My friend's blog also reminded me that Halloween is coming up - I'm going to be Dorthy from The Wizard of Oz! I'm sooo excited! And I have the perfect super cute red shoes to finish the costume!..

Cutest Little Notepads *Ever*!!

So, I'm sure you can tell, that from my paintings, that I'm slightly obssesed with the polka dot / circular trend. And so, to my pleasure, while browsing (the treasuries, I think), I found these cute handpainted matchbook notepads:
They're created by a wonderful mixed media artist, Phizzychick (on Etsy) in Spain.

When Harry Met Sally

I just posted a new painting today - "When Harry Met Sally" It's by far one of my favourites so far, just from what it represents:
I've also recently engaged in a trade with lorelei1141 @ Etsy, and I ended up with this gorgeous bracelet. I can't wait to get it in the mail!!! :o)

Also, I recently purchased some yummy soap, from soapalooza , which I also can't wait to get!

I'll think I'll be hounding the post office for the these soon in a couple days - I love getting things in the mail!

Etsy Feature: BeadsInTheBelfry

Beads In The Belfry is an online Etsy shop that creates beautiful, nature inspired jewelry. Run by Nina on the East Coast, her shop has been a recent addition to the Etsy community.
I found her in the discussions through her avatar. I loved her tree pendents at first site. I'm personally a huge fan of trees, and hers definitly found a place in my heart. She used wire, various stones, pearls and beads to create her pieces.Nina also has a blog, myspace, and can be contacted at beadsinthebelfry@gmail.com

New Print Available, and Earrings!

I've just listed a new print from a recent original in my Etsy shop:
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.

Etsy Feature: Bee's Knees Studio Shop

I found today's Etsy feature while I was randomly browsing the Treasuries - right after the got back up and running - Yippie to Admin! :o)

Anyways, Bee's Knees Studio Shop is run by Erica Vess - with the help and company of her boyfriend, Ryan, and their two kitties: Murdock and Enid. All of this creativeness happens in Richmond, CA.Erica's prints are gorgeous, and there's something for everyone in her store. She has cute, Children's art prints for the younger generation or those who will always be young at heart. She also carries a line of 'sophisticated' art prints, geared more towards the fine art side - oh which the Sea Tendrils and Filigree Ginkgo are my two favorite sets.

Erica also has a blog, and a website: BeesKneesStudio.com
