Featured Shop for October 31, 2013 - Yvi B Jones Ceramics


Soap Dish
I truly have so much virtual love for Yvi and her talent. We have become cyber buddies over the past year+ and I am the proud owner of a ceramic sunflower necklace created by her. When she shares the love she doesn't hold back; featuring my items in many of her teams' treasuries. She is one of the sweetest people I've ever chatted with through the internet. I feel so fortunate to have found her and her shop filled with delightfully made ceramic gifts, home decor items and jewelry. It is my honor to share her shop on Etsy with you today.

My favorite pieces look so delicate as if created out of tatting or lace. Her story is beautifully told in her own words on Etsy here. Go ... read ... learn all about the magic behind these ceramic pieces.

And now for the best part ... sharing photos of a few of my favorites. Yay!

In The Studio

The studio has been hopping! It's been busy.

The custom order is going really well. I am enjoying the creative process as I always do when making mosaics. I'm really pleased with them.

I'm still adding totes, pillow covers and note cards onto Etsy. It's amazing how many people have mentioned how much they like my photos as pillows. I'm so happy about that, because I like them myself. I just added some of my favorite quotes.

Always Believe - Decorative Pillow Cover
I really like that one!

The Scrap Glass Cross (#7) that I shared recently as a new listing was sold this week! Woo-hoo! Time to make another one. I'm doing the happy dance about that because I really do love making scrap glass mosaics. Yay!

Weekend Wrap Up

Oh what a wonderful week it has been. The order went through for the 50 wooden cross ornaments all in blue stained glass. Which means as soon as they arrive, I am ready to go!

The most excitement was having so many sales that I actually had to print out a reminder of each process. I can honestly say I love having so many sales that I have to make a list to keep track. It is fleeting; it's special around this time of year for my shop because I do get a lot of attention. Holiday shoppers find me and like what they see. I don't blame them. Big grin. My handmade items make wonderful gifts.

Here's another look at some of what sold this week:

You may not think that's a whole heck of a lot, but for me, it's been a major sales event week!

I had a great week and am looking forward to another one. As the crosses arrive to be worked on, I know I'll be in the zone. I'm excited to get started on those ornaments! Yay!

As promised, I'm adding new photos to society6 today. Here's a few new ones that you may buy directly from society6's site.

Sun Shadows
The Nest
Mosaics were added this week on Etsy too. An owl, a cross and an upcycled mug. Flower Power was the theme for 2 out of 3 of them.

I love the studio when it's busy. I love it when it's quiet. I love creating, I love dreaming about new creations. Life is filled with love. It's a wonderful thing.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. The grandchildren have left to attend a Halloween party today. Fun!

Picture Day

It was one of those weeks. I was so overwhelmed by the colors of the leaves around me that I shared my photos way before I had planned. If you've seen these already on flickr or my FB Page, I hope you don't mind seeing them again because today is the official Picture Day.

Happy Halloween!
Fairy Castle!

Most of these will be added to my society6 shop which means they'll be available in blank note cards, pillow covers and tote bags on Etsy very soon. Society6 has iPod skins/covers, laptop skins and iPhone covers available as well as the prints themselves both framed and unframed.

Featured Shop for October 24, 2013 - justByou


HandMade jewelry, gifts & more. HomeMade sweet treats.

Handstamped Inspirational Necklace

I love this shop. I love the jewelry, the sweet treats and the items HANDMADE by the Kids. The owner, Kim is one of my all-time favorite people that I've met through Etsy. Her values, the fact that she's self-taught, her quality and the amount of time and care she spends with her blog and team activities through it for Etsy amazes me.

She's given me advice on how to go about getting sponsorship for my blog and with that help I'll be branching out in that direction next year. She often takes the time to come and comment on my blog. She's awesome and so is her shop! It is my honor to make justByou a Featured Shop today.

Kim is big on teamwork. I love that! As she says, she's got the whole family involved in her shop. When you buy something from justByou, it's coming from her family to you and yours.

Let's start with the yummy sweet treats. Yes, I have to admit I go back often to see if there's been more goodies added. Can you blame me? Just LOOK!!!

Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Coconut Cluster Haystacks

Drool worthy, is it not? Do you like white chocolate? Me too.

White Chocolate Coconut Cluster Haystacks

Besides delicious sweet stuff, her children have items in her shop.

Heart Kraft Envelopes

Spend some time visiting justByou and see how one family can come together and create a shop filled with love. In her words: when you purchase an item made by one of the children, you help them save for their future. Show your support for education! All sales from their section "HANDMADE by the KIDS" will be going to the family's scholarship fund, which goes 100% to the educational costs for their four kids (saving for their future education goals can never start too early, and with this section, they're working for their earnings)!

Dog Tag Necklace

I think more of us should follow in Kim's footsteps to help children save for the future by working for it. Don't be surprised if you see some things in my shop made by the grandchildren at some point. It's a wonderful way to get them involved in creative endeavors and life lessons.

THANKS Tags in Rainbow Colors

I've shared some of my favorite items from this shop and given you a little glimpse into it. Isn't it cool?

Mood Bead Cuff Bracelet

I have to leave you with one more drool-worthy shot of something yummy.

Praline Cashews

Oh ... my ... goodness!!

You can find justByou on Facebook, through the very active blog I mentioned above and on Twitter too.
