Support local artists, crafters & designers this holiday season! ^_^

Yes, yes, YES!!  I know we all love games & DVDs, but (especially in this economy) instead of buying mass-marketed junk w/a thoughtless toss of a few dollars to a big corporation, why not buy something that's totally unique??  You'll look hella-original, & your gift recipient(s) will receive something insanely cool; a non-mass-produced goodie made with love, and a piece which is likely one-of-a-kind!  T'is a win-win!  ^_^

If you have something in particular that you'd like me to make for you (or someone you care for) for the holidays (anything from Hallowe'en/Samhain & beyond), gimme a holler!  I'm currently making new polymer clay goodies for the Hallowe'en season, and I can't wait to see what comes out next! :D


I'd like to know what YOU want for your Winter Holiday this year! :D

What kinds of art, beaded jewelry, polymer clay, felt creations, or other crafty concoctions would people like to see for the holidays? 
..A gaunt & grinning goblin, masquerading as old Saint Nick maybe? Or a faerie gala, gleefully gathered 'round a bountiful feast perhaps?  Seomthing delightful yet ghoulish, with everything from veggies to sundry severed parts; like the remains of fool-hardy human to fickle, feathered foul..?

What do YOU seek to give or receive over the holidays..?

As I'm a relatively craftsy person, it's no surprise that I run w/a relatively craftsy crowd. :) Well it just so happens that 3 of my friends also have shops up @ Etsy, with some truly unique pieces that are totally amazing! There's Raven w/some fantabulous metal & stone jewelry, Jaran with these lovely wire-wrapped trees and buggies that are absolutely beautiful, and Jessi who has fun knitting patterns & pieces for the fantastically quirky and crafty. :) If you or someone you know is looking for a cool place to shop for potential holiday gifts, there's nowhere else you'll find more unusual, personalized pieces!
Hope these'll help you and/or people you know find cool new stuff for the holidays this year. ^_^

Shopping local is a -great- way to help the economy, stimulate your local market and give support to the "little guys" who make it all happen for themselves, as well as other businesses in the area- so support your local artizans now, and help somebody you know & love have a truly unique holiday experience. :D

..I love my talented friends! ^_^

Since PhotoDraw has recently died and I can't find my MS Office software, I've been trying to use GIMP and just about anything I could to put this little baby together.  (W/no visual software anymore, that's been TOUGH!  But I found a benner maker online that had the capabilities to make one the size I needed, and eventually found an old trail version of Jasc. Paint Shop Pro. that helped me put the finishing touches down.  It would have been SO much easier and faster in PDv2, but eh, ya use whatcha got, right? ;D  So at last I've been able to finish my Etsy store banner, and here t'is!

So.. whatcha guys think?
