blog award, giveaway, new goodies

Duni of Lovely Purses gave me this award today. :)

Thanks Duni! I just gave out the Circle of Friends award a couple weeks ago so I don't think I will be passing this one on to anyone, but I still really appreciate it.

Kristie of Artisan Clay is having a sale right now in honor of her hopefully soon 300th sale on Etsy. You can get all of the information about the sale as well as a giveway she's having on her blog. The specific entry is right here. I have not bought anything from Kristie yet, but if I don't win the giveaway, I may have to cave!

I received my first pieces ever from Lisa of LisaPetersArt this weekend. This was not an Etsy order but some pieces that I requested from her Flickr photostream.

I already have a plan for the smaller brown rectangle. I normally try to make the clasps on my leafy bracelets blend in with the bracelets, but I think that I'm going to have to make an exception for one with one of Lisa's leaf beads. I'm thinking about a green/pink one, kind of like my original version, for it. Lisa has many amazing items on Etsy, but she has even more on Flickr so I highly recommend checking out her photostream as well.

I got my newest pieces from Jenn of blueseraphim the beginning of this week. I got a set of funky nuggets and a set of assorted caramel beads. All gorgeous! They look even more amazing in person than they do in the pictures. I also got my freebie necklace with one of these mocha ruffles from my previous order coupon.

I think that's it for splurging for a while, at least until I get another sale on Etsy and have some more money in my PayPal account. :)


  1. Congratulations on your award! I really like those leaves too!

    Oh, about the Artbeads stuff. I did get the email from their rep back in September, I just didn't follow up with my request for beads. I should contact her again and see if I'm still eligible though.

  2. Thanks! Lisa has one more available on Etsy right now:

    Good luck with Art Beads!

  3. Gosh those are really really really gorgeous buttons!! You'll make something gorgeous with them - I'm sure of it *smiles*

  4. Thanks! I'll be sure to post about it when I do!
