new stuff on my blog

I added "my etsy favorites" to my blog.  You can find it on the right of the screen, you might have to scroll down a little (it's under my facebook badge).  When I am in etsy it is a lot of fun to browse all the different types of items sellers have.  So, I thought it would be neat to share my favorites with my readers.
I will also be doing another post of items from my facebook friends I am finding!  Check out my first post on that (a couple of posts down), I found some really neat stuff!

I think I fixed it! I think I fixed the whole "comments" issue.  A lot of people have been letting me know they have been having issues when leaving a comment on my blog, and I had no idea what to do.  Thanks to some fellow etsy friends I think I have finally fixed the problem.  Although I will not know for sure until someone tries, I really do hope it works now.  If you are reading this, please try to leave a comment so I will know whether or not I know what I am doing (ha ha)!

My Facebook Friends' Items!

So I am enjoying facebook and meeting a lot of crafty people.  I am browsing their etsy shops and thought I would share some really neat items I am finding.  These would make great Christmas gifts, and would be fun to get "just because"!

She sells a little bit of everything from stained glass jewelry to baby hats, check out these earrings! I totally love purple and how cool...stained glass!

She makes the cutest art dolls! I love teddy bears, isn't he cute!

She is a really talented painter with a unique style. So pretty!

The shop is full of Scandinavian textile art and unique handmade supplies.  I really think this would be a lovely addition to anyone's holiday decor. Isn't is pretty?

She has really cute hair accessories!  As a mom I am always looking for cute things to put in my daughter's hair. This is just one of her many creations!

Okay so these are just a few of my favorites I have found browsing all my facebook friends' shops.  Enjoy browsing their shops, they really do have some cool stuff!  Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite is.

I will be adding more of my favorites I have found, so keep checking back!

I would love for you to become a follower of my blog, all you have to do is click the "follow" button located on the right side closer to the top of my blog...and you will be able to stay updated with all my favorite items I am finding!  (Okay so I am new to all this "blogging stuff" and I am sure most of you know how to become a follower of a blog...but for those who don't I thought this info would be helpful.)

Angel Bracelets

I am so excited to have finally started listing my angel bracelets in my etsy shop!
These angel bracelets have been a best seller at a lot of the craft shows I have been in.

I seen the angel and knew it would be real pretty to wear as a bracelet.  The angel is made from swarovski pearls, pewter angel wings, and a crystal rondelle for her halo.  I surround the angel with czech fire polished glass in a wide variety of colors spaced with seed beads.  I have made these bracelets in almost any color you could imagine.

I really wanted to add an extra special touch to the bracelet design, so I decided on charms.  I found my "believe" charms and it just works.  I also put my signature "made with love" charm on the bracelet.  I believe the words on the charms add a little bit more of meaning to the bracelet.

 I have listed a few of the colors I have made.  Still more to come.  I also take special requests on my angel bracelets.  If there is a certain color you want or a specific size you need, just let me know.  I would love to make one especially for you.  These make a great gift as well, so keep me in mind for the holidays! 
And don't forget I offer FREE SHIPPING, so you can order as many as you want and not have to worry about high shipping costs!
