*Pick Five*

*Here's what "Pick Five" is all about*
I thought I would start something fun on here. I got to thinking that I would really like to share with you all, all of the really lovely Etsy shops that I run across. I am always falling in love with shops on Etsy (I mean, how could you not with all of the lovely artisans out there?) and as artists, we need all of the support we can get! So I'm thinking that once a week (well, that is the goal at least), I will share with you the five Etsy shops that have caught my eye recently. Here are this weeks five picks!

Western Art Glass - Offers awesome stained glass art! 

PoppyandPurl - Offers adorable hand knit hats and other lovlies!

Fawn Lily Botanica - Offers wonderful herbal items!

Xairian Maille  - Offers unique chain linked jewelry!

Elves & Fairies - Offers whimsical fantasy prints! 

If you have the chance, please check out all of these lovely shops!


Winter On My Mind...

(Listing Here)
I feel almost as if I have skipped the autumn crafting opportunities, I suppose not really though. Living in central NC, our tempature today will be around 81 degrees and quite frankly, I'm sick of it. I grew up in northern Washingtion were we actually experienced every season. It was great. If we are lucky, here we'll get a small amount of snow, but mostly just a dead looking winter. These winter little gnomes are bringing me some hope I must say. Fingers crossed, we'll get a good snow this year. If you live in a place with similar weather, maybe these little guys will cheer you and your little ones up too! Remember, I can do custom gnomes as well!
