1. Elsie’s blog A Beautiful Mess. It is soooo incredibly cute! Full of  inspiration & lovely shots of Elsie’s paintings, products for her shop & her very talented boyfriend…




2. Just Like Camping Mrs Boo Radley’s (Not Her Real Name) blog is intriguing… she’s a foodie, a locavore, grow-your-own with a very satirical sense of humour. Have a peep…

3. Papillon Jewelry Tho Dinh’s very cute blog showcases various Etsy sellers/artists (including moi! Yay!) & her own gorgeous jewelry…


What I’ve Been Up To Lately June 4, 2009

A venture into the magical world of headbands…


Wire wrapped earrings… especially loving these ones…


All available now at www.themonstermaker.etsy.com

I’ve decided to have a go at growing my own herbs & maybe some vegetables too… if anyone has any seeds laying about that they don’t want drop me a comment & maybe we could trade?

I had a “Money Saving Tips” thread on etsy y’day & it threw up some great tips…

1. Buy in bulk as it works out cheaper

2. Shop in your local charity shops

3. Use lemon, vinegar & bicarbonate of soda to do your cleaning instead of buying in chemicals…

4. Hold a car boot sale

5. Make your own food! Bake bread, make sauces from scratch…

6. Reuse carrier bags for shopping

7. Freecycle

8. Bulk up meals with rice, pasta, lentils or chickpeas

9. Collect rainwater to wate your plants

10. Switch Electricity supplier… and remember to switch everything off!

Check out the thread for more tips… http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=6173279&page=6

And last but not least i’ve fallen in love with these…







Gotta run… hugs & kisses xoxoxo

Its been a busy last few days… work, a custom order, ebay sales, the arrival of my secret swap, my new banner for etsy, featured in my first Treasury, re-photographing & re-titling products for etsy… BUSY!

First up, my secret swap… a gorgeous pair of earrings from the lovely Kalicat (http://kalicat.etsy.com)


They are a liitle bit bluer than you can see in this photo here, couldn’t get the colours clear with the camera?!

My new banner from the lovely bannersrus (http://bannersrus.etsy.com)


Unfotunately, the treasury has expired now, but I was so excited & it was courtesy of the lovely StudioTempera (http://studiotempera.etsy.com) who makes amazing gourd lampshades.

The custom order was for a friend at work who is going to a wedding this weekend which is what she wanted it for. There is a similar one for sale in my etsy shop (http://themonstermaker.etsy.com).


Also I took some time out to enjoy the sun & read out in my garden. Realised that we have a bush in the back garden that the bees loooove…


Does anybody know what this plant is?

Have to head off to work again now so will catch up with you all soon… 🙂
