Thanks to a 'sneak attack'

After an hour or two of trawling through downtown in an attempt of selling some of my creations I returned home a little deflated after having no luck- apparently many of the little stores are struggling with the economy at the moment. However somewhat of a miracle took place whilst I was out.... I returned home and checked my emails only to find that I had made 2 etsy sales :) quite frankly I was ecstatic. It turns out that I had been 'sneak attacked' a lovely group of people have this whole little word of sneak attacks.. they choose new etsy shops and promote them excessively. Take a look at their website

After a joyful afternoon of sales and a tough workout at the gym I ended the evening with the most delightful treat a perfect little chocolate cup filled with coffee chocolate heaven.

One more big thankyou to the sneak attack team!

Days later I finally find my card reader in the trunk of the car!
so here are the pictures...

A cute canvas tote with original illustration

Since I have been teaching watercolor classes this month at a really awesome community center I have started painting at home again :)

I just love decorative clothespins

I have plenty of clothespins on my inspiration wire!

Good grief finally a post!

OK so I haven't blogged in about 10 years (ok slight exaggeration I know- but I do like to class exaggeration as one of my strong points)Well the laptop power cable broke hence no Internet for 2 weeks because we were cheap and bought a new cable off of ebay and it probably had to get shipped for Timbuktu!
well finally I am back on line :) I don't think anyone realises how much they use the Internet... nor will you until you don't have it! but I survived.

Well I have had some creative time although it was on hold for a little while as my brother came to visit and commandeered my craft room!
So here are the latest creations....

OK disaster I've just wasted an abundance of time wondering around my apartment in circles looking for my camera reader in order to upload my photos and of course I can not find it anywhere! so the photos will have to wait until later.. sorry!

So I'm off in to town now in hope of selling some of my creative loot to a local boutique... wish me luck

Thankyou wonderful etsy freinds

I put a post on the Etsy forums asking why I still have not had one sale at my shop:(

I had such a fantastic response and so much support it was overwhelming, so I thought I'd repay the favour by choosing a few of my favourite sellers that gave me so much encouragement and sharing them with you my lovely followers.

This is my favourite item from my new friend 'sometimes I swirl'

I just love this adorable card! stop by kate's store to find more great cards

seaoats shop is full of stunning purses and pencil cases all hand printed and sewn
take a look and find something you love

I hope you enjoy these lovely finds as much as I did. Thankyou again kind etsy friends

A little country

Today I finally finished a valance I have been working on for the bedroom. I have been completely inspired by beautiful floral country prints as of late so naturally I decided to change the bedroom theme (for the third time this year)

After finishing the valance I took a little look around etsy for some cute country finds...
This wonderful etsy store has an abundance of beautiful wedding accessories.

So stop by and have and take a look at the braggingbags etsy store
