Shop Update, Fun Crayons & a BIG Thank you!

Just added this Amy Butler scrabble tile pendant to MY SHOP...


...the others will be added this weekend.  Still working on getting good photos & this was the only one that turned out half way decent.  I DID make a LIGHT BOX but just got some new lighting and need to hook it all up...woo hoo!  I'll have to show you my funny little set up in another post :-)

And, I finally got some of the Recycled DOMINO MAGNETS posted that I've been working on...a little bit of a VINTAGE FLAIR with these cute Storybook Children & Forest Friends :-)

  

In other news...

I slid my way to the mailbox yesterday to receive a SURPRISE package from my bloggy buddy Tristan over at Tristan Time.  She has had some rough times lately but still was so thoughtful as to send me this adorable birdie journal...

THANK YOU TRISTAN!  I was just smiling ear to ear sliding my way back to the house, even before opening the package.  What a sweetie...go check her out if you get a chance!

Now, for some fun...another bloggy girlfriend, Lori at Morning Glories & Moonflowers posted about making fun crayons.  So we tried it and ended up with these...

The girls had so much fun breaking up the crayons & making 'pretty colors', that I went to Target today and got 2 heart silicone ice trays for only $2.50 (because ours are huge & we needed smaller ones).  They are going to make each one of their classmates a fun heart crayon to give with a homemade card for Valentine's day.  Their idea...so cute ;-)

Last but not least, I just had my 100th SALE on ETSY.  So you know I'll be having a GIVEAWAY soon to celebrate.  You know how I love milestones, hehe.  I just didn't expect it to come so soon so I'm not prepared...but I'll keep ya posted of course!

Okay, now GO VISIT MY SHOP  for 15% off everything in the VALENTINE section, just for my blog readers!  Just type 'Bloggy Love' in the message to seller and I'll reimburse you.  

T.G.I.F ;-)

Awwh the journal is so cute! I have been seeing so many different ones that love the birds and nest and I am getting that way also. Looking for some for some spring decor.

I have also seen the crayons around blogland and was going to make some.

So glad your Etsy store is doing well!

Great post! So many fun things. I love the magnets. I think I remember some of those pictures from an old mother goose book - brings back good feelings.
