New Listing and picked for a Treasury!

We just listed this magnet today. It's very different from our usual fare, but I think someone will like it. I do!

It's done with colored pencils drawn over embossed vellum paper. I created 4 different leaf patterns, then "traced" them onto the vellum with a rounded toothpick for the embossed effect. After that I took my colored pencils and just had fun!

We also found out that one of our magnets was picked for this treasury called "Lightly Hearted".

The magnet featured is our Fat Cat Mummy with his heart undies showing under his mummy rags, lol.

A Thank You Treasury to Etsy Shops

This morning I was up early and snagged a Treasury that I had anxiously been waiting for! I had my Poster Sketch all ready to go just waiting for the chance to use it! I used my Etsy shop's Heart Wheel (where you see how many hearts you have from others), and scrolled my mouse all around it with my eyes closed, and randomly selected shops. From their shop I selected either one of their featured items, or one I really liked. Our shop has quite a few hearts, and I could only select 12 and 4 alternates, but I hope to keep doing treasuries like this. It's our shop's way of saying "thank you" for liking our shop enough to make it one of your favorites! Plus, it was a lot of fun going through all those shops again! Here's the treasury link:

Please take a look and enjoy the shops. There are some very interesting ones to browse through.

Here's a couple of items in the treasury:

Poor Hannah.....

Our little doxie Hannah had to make a trip to the vet Monday. She had a growth under her eyelid that was irritating her eye, but then on Saturday as she was chasing her ball, she caught a nail on something and nearly pulled it out! I tried to keep her quiet Sunday so she wouldn't hurt her paw any more, but you know dachshunds - they have a mind of their own. I found out just how fast Hannah can run on three legs!

At least I could treat both problems at the same time during the vet visit. They had to put her under just to be able to touch her paw, and also to remove the eyelid growth. I hated having to leave her there, but all went well except she has one less nail on one paw! She has stitches on her eyelid also, so she has to wear the dreaded cone for 2 weeks! I'll be so sick of hearing that darn plastic scraping, lol. She can't fit through the doggie door with it on, so I have to take her outside frequently. Her little paw is all bandaged up and she looks at me like "mommy, I can't walk very well, please carry me", so of course I do!

Here are some pics I took of poor little Hannah, and of Lucy our pug who is quite jealous of the attention Hannah's getting. If you look close, you can see the stitches on Hannah's eye.

"Crazy and Beautiful Ladies of Etsy" is the theme I chose for this treasury I was lucky to snag! All of the items came from items or sellers in my favorites lists. I really love this treasury that I put together! I know I'm bragging, but please take a look and dig deeper into each sellers shop. You will find beautiful, amazing, fun art; all handmade by Fantastic Etsians!

We're featured in 2 Treasuries!
