Friday Feature: Cooling off with green

It’s the end of a long day, and it’s hot, and I’m sitting here with a laptop computer. What better way to cool off than to make a minty green, cool Etsy treasury? I bring you Mint Green in July, guaranteed to combat even the hottest summer’s day!

All the items are fabulous, of course, and if you want to see them more closely, be sure and click the image of the treasury — it will take you to the original treasury with links to all the fantastic handmade items on Etsy.

Friday Feature: Vintage Tools

My dad collects old woodworking tools. His workbench is a sight to behold — it belongs more in an antique shop or a museum than a suburban garage. For him, I made an Etsy treasury full of tools and toolboxes I know he would like. This one’s for you, Dad!

Friday Feature: Celebrate the USA!

I love the 4th of July and this year I am celebrating a little early with a patriotic treasury with lots of beautiful red, white, and blue items. I also made this treasury as part of the June Treasury Challenge by the Etsy DTeam and the June Treasury Game of the Idaho Etsy Team.

Friday Feature: Getting organized with handmade Etsy items

May is a good month to get organized. The winter snows have melted, the weather has improved, and it isn’t too hot yet. Before the crazy summer months start, with the kids home from school, relatives visiting, and going on vacation, why not take a little time to clean up the clutter and get organized.

I have collected these lovely handmade organizing tools and items into one place to help you.

Friday Feature: Art Beyond Eye Candy

I have gotten to know Connie as a team member on the Etsy DListers team. She is cheerful and persevering, an artist in Idaho who shares her art in shows and galleries and in her Etsy store. In her blog, Art Beyond Eye Candy, she shares her personal journey and the reasons behind and for many of her artworks.

Friday Feature: Wedding in Spring Treasury

Something a little different for today’s Friday Feature. Instead of a treasury I made, or someone else’s blog, today I want to feature a treasury made by another Etsy seller, Vaida of PhotoGraphics.

My white rose wedding tassel is in the treasury, which is how I found out about it, but the whole treasury is so stunning I couldn’t resist sharing it with you.

It’s enough to make me want to do over my wedding planning and I never thought I’d say that — planning my wedding was the most difficult logistical planning I’d ever done in my life up to that point.

I tried to decide which item in the treasury {besides my own tassel, of course} was my favorite item, but I just can’t do it. I love them all. Can you decide which one you love the best? If you can, share in the comments, please.

Friday Feature: Introducing Popper and Mimi

Amanda runs Popper and Mimi on Etsy, where you can find beautiful and cute handmade cards and paper crafts. She makes everything from silly cards for children’s birthdays, to elaborate and beautiful cards for adults.

She also runs a blog by the same name, where she shares her current projects, both paper craft and sewing, and offers excellent tutorials on crafting with children.

Later this year, in the summer, Popper and Mimi will be featured in several magazines. How exciting for Amanda! Find out where on her blog (under Publications).

Friday Feature: AddSomeStitches Blog & Etsy Shop

Awesome crocheted hats are just a click away with AddSomeStitches! She makes every one of her hats by hand, and she still finds time to blog. Last week, she asked her readers if they preferred her hats photographed with a mannequin or a human model. What do you think?

Model

Mannequin

The same hat on a model (top) and on a mannequin (bottom). Which do you like better? When you’ve decided, head on over to AddSomeStitches’ blog and let her know what you think.

And while you’re at it, be sure and check out her Etsy shop, full of fabulous crochet hats and other crocheted items, like bags, toys, scrubbies and more.

Want to know even more about AddSomeStitches? Read my Friday Feature interview with her from last year.
