Monkey Business!

I threw this together for a new baby boy in the family. I have so much fabric that I figured I should use it maybe?? LOL Both of the patterns that I used are from Precious Patterns. They do allow selling the finished items if you purchase the pattern. However, only 5 items online at a time and credit to Precious Patterns in your listing. The patterns are reasonably priced, PDF dowloads (love that!) and they run specials in their Etsy shop! Here is a link:

A great gift for the graduate....butterflies!

I've always kind of associated butterflies with new beginnings and the freedom to fly wherever their wings will take them. So wouldn't this beautiful photo of a beautiful butterfly be a great gift for the graduate heading off to college? Or the college graduate to hang in their new office or home? I think so! Of course, I found it on Etsy! This and lots of other gorgeous photography can be found in Silvine Photography's Etsy shop. To visit, just click here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/SilvinePhotography

Helping others...it's just the right thing to do!

I was admiring this beautiful necklace on Etsy. Then I read that the seller (MissyM88) donates 5% of all of her Etsy sales to the Salvation Army. That is just a really cool thing to do! I hope you will visit her store if you are looking for graduation or birthday gifts or maybe some wedding accessories. To visit her store just click here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/MissyM88 And thank you to the artist/seller that helps others by donating! You rock!

I cannot wait for sweet summertime!!

So, I had a GREAT Mother's Day weekend! All of my kids were here! They brought flowers, Starbucks, chocolate, and more! Did I raise them right or what? ;)

AND the sun was actually shining here in my little piece of the Pacific Northwest!
The down side: I looked over to see that the briars are thriving on rain/sun combo and will soon be taking over my property if I don't "manage" them - LOL managing briars/blackberry bushes........right.
The up side: Those same obnoxious briars are home to so many cute little baby bunnies in the spring AND provide TONS of huge, sweet blackberries in the summer! Even our puppy dogs will stop to eat blackberries on our walks!

So this is my fruit listing for the day on etsy and ebay - this fabric! You see, now it's raining but I am hanging on to the sunshine in my mind! You can see it here:
AND check my Etsy Finds Page - I am finding a bunch of berries & fruit related stuff so I can make a big Etsy Fruit Salad for you to look at! Don't forget to go to my sidebar and click on the Friday Fabric Freebie Page - leave a comment on there to win. That's it! EVERY friday as long as there is interest.

Etsy find! Pretty flowers for weddings, proms, graduation ~ or any time!

These are so pretty! The first thing that I thought of was all the June weddings coming up and how perfect these would be for bridesmaids! You wouldn't have to have matching dresses yet the same hair accessory in various colors or shades would tie it all together! I think these pretty bobbies would be perfect for short or long hair!
