A Perfect & Funny Onesie

So if you read my post from early this morning, you will know I am getting no sleep thanks to my little 6 month old.  I saw this adorable onesie by mindybanta  and knew I would have to post it :)  To visit mindybanta's etsy shop, CLICK HERE

Freeganism- What do you think???

So I wrote a brief article on freeganism and was very surprised by the negative response I got from one individual who believes it is akin to stealing.  I am curious- what do you guys think?  It is a brief article and I would love to hear your opininion.. You can post a comment at the bottom of the article.. thanks and I look forward to reading what you guys think :)

Quirky & Creative World by MoontsyandFloontsy on Etsy

So as I have been up since before the crack of dawn, I decided to take a break & look for something new and fun.  I found it at Moontsy and Floontsy on Etsy.  Here you will find wonderful little creature, gnome villages, and much more.  I love this little nesting yellow bird with 3 perfect little eggs.  To visit MoontsyandFloontsy Shop on Etsy, CLICK HERE

Ugh- Will I EVER get a full night's sleep again?

Seriously- I am beginning to think it will never happen.  My daughter is almost 7 months old & will not sleep through the night.  She goes to  bed without a fight- but from 3am on, she is a terrible sleeper.  I can't remember the last time I got a good night's sleep & am not sure wether I feel like screaming or crying- or both.  Now we (my 2& a half yr old & 7 month old) have been out of bed since 5... I gave up trying to make her go back to sleep & my son was chatting away in his bed so I grabbed him before he woke up my husband.  I just want 1 good night's sleep- just one.. & I think I would feel so much better- & so much more functional!

Embrace Your Uniqueness

I love this Etsy shop..  gl accessories knows how to "stand out and be different" and can help you do the same!  I love the fact that this piece can be worn in different ways.. It brightens up and gives a fresh twist to an otherwise conservative outfit~  would also look great with a plain tshirt & jeans!  To check out more of gl accessories unique and cool creations, Click Here

A new twist on wearing a scarf... I love the idea of a necklace that also feels warm and cozy as it gets colder out!

Something New

So I am excited about a new (for me) technique I have been using with polymer clay.. I finally listed 2 of them and hope to get up some more tomorrow.. I really enjoy doing the "staining" part.. I love mixing the colors & experimenting with lighter & darker shades :)

One of My All Time Favorites!

I just love this ring by Seavbeach Designs on Etsy.  It has such a natural organic feel to it and I love the surprise heart inside- perfect!  This is probably the first artist I "met" on Etsy and it was because of this beautiful ring that I contacted her.  To visit beautiful creations by a lovely person, click on Seavbeachdesigns

Good Idea? Need your Opinion!!

So, I have decided to add a supplies section to my shop.. am not sure how this will go.  I added my 1st listing today of some loose resin gems to be used in crafting, scrapbooking, jewelry making..

I guess my thinking is that diversifying a little is a good thing..

The Weekend is Almost Here...

Hang in there!

A Moving, Classic Poem...


I never saw a wild thing
sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
without ever having felt sorry for itself.
