The Etsy CIJ Sales Event Continues!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. It is going to be hot, hot, double-hot here in PA this week. Humidity is what gets us most. Because it's hard to breath out there, I'm staying in!

To help celebrate the Christmas in July Etsy Sale Event, running all week and ending July 21st, I'm sharing the coolest items I can find on Etsy from shops who are taking part in the CIJ Sales Event. This includes but is not limited to, the fine artisans of The Creative Trends team and the CIJ Team.

I'm thinking chilling thoughts all week long! Here's a photo I took in February, to help me remember what it was like only a few short months ago.

Doing a search for snowmen on Etsy, I found some delightful items. Here are a few:


Tomorrow I'll share some items from the Creative Trends Team and make a treasury or two for them as well and the CIJ Team. Woo-hoo!

I'm enjoying getting to know everyone through this event. If nothing else, it is a wonderful way to meet the most incredibly creative folks on the planet! Awesome!!

I did a bit of grouting this weekend on 2 crosses and the funky elephant wall art too.

One more to cross is ready to grout and then I can start in on 5 more! Yippie-Skippie!

Isn't she cute?! I've painted the sides and back since this photo was taken and she'll be headed toward my shop very soon. I think it is so cool that she looks like she is smiling. Can you see it?

I got all the items that have been paid for so far from the auction and a few Etsy sales packed up and ready for mailing. I placed the custom ordered gazing ball next to them, so that the photo would have more than just a bunch of boxes to look at. I should have taken a photo of them sitting in the boxes before I wrapped them all up for a better photo. Oh well, I'm not used to having so many to mail out at one time! And FYI: I would never ship a mosaic exposed like this gazing ball is. It's not ready to go out just yet anyway, however, it is so pretty to look at. And this may seem like no big deal to anyone but me, but it took me 2-1/2 hours to wrap up the mosaics and get the postage printed, boxes sealed and so on. Wow, that's a lot of mosaics!

6 boxes of mosaics packed up and ready to head out sitting next to the shiny gazing ball.
Believe it or not, there may be a few more to pack up before the week is through. Hooray for being busy!

Stay peaceful,
