I am SO glad I changed my Secret Promise Ring photos recently :)
(special thanks to LiciaBeads for giving me the heads-up at 2am!)

I just checked and I got over 100 views and a bunch of hearts on that ring
oh, and a convo from someone who wants me to make a custom ring
for her to give to her fiance at their wedding! Wow…SO exciting!

...don't you think?

A handful of EtsyRAIN artists took a chance and participated a very VERY last-minute show at Eat Local in Queen Anne. The show featured:

We had a great time getting to know each other a little better…it was just too bad the weather was so horrible that few customers made it into the store :(

Some of us sold some stuff…some of us sold none. Ah well. That’s the way the snow falls ;) You can be sure we’ll do more EtsyRAIN collaborations at Eat Local in 2009!

 

How am I ever going to make it up QA Hill?? December 20, 2008

I have so many great Tote2Go! Double Shoppers left over from Urban Craft Uprising. I figured I would, so I agreed to do a mini-trunk show at Eat Local this Saturday, Dec. 20, 2008 from 12pm to 4pm. Looking out the window, I’m wondering if it’s  a good idea to try to make it up to upper Queen Anne. The road in front of my house is *really* icy (we don’t have snow plows here in Seattle!) and…well…it is called Queen Anne HILL for a reason.

Hm. Then again I think of all the people who are anywhere East of us that know how to drive in the snow without tire chains (natch) and make it to their destinations just fine.

Am I really that much of a wuss? :P

seattle snow...

seattle snow...this is nothin' compared to the rest of the country, right?! sheesh...I am such a wuss.

That’s it. If I can get out of my driveway and onto the main road, I’m going. I may go the LONG way around, but I’m going! Read all about the event on my new Facebook page: http://moourl.com/Tote2GoTrunkShow1208

Oh…right. Due to being “snowed in” for two days, I updated my Facebook page and am now on Twitter! Friend and Follow me, won’t you?

I’ve been running around like mad trying to get all the things on my “to do” list done!

My parents are coming into town on from the 20th through the 26th, so I’m desperately trying to get my very messy apartment in some sort of presentable order. Not an easy task at any time of the year…but I have to give it a try – six days is just long enough notice that faint line of dust on the edge of the cabinet. <sigh>

In addition to all of that, I’m also trying to finish up preparations for EtsyRain’s next self-produced crafts show in Ballard! There are signs to make, postcards to distribute and last-minute advertising to be sent…

24 EtsyRain.com artists will be showing their work for the first time in Ballard!
Come on down, buy some cool stuff and set a spell for some home-style barbecue with
the folks from the little-known local community center – Ballard NWSC

It’s gonna be lots of fun! :)

So much has happened since my last post…and honestly, I don’t know where to begin (again). So, instead, I’ll share photos of these gigantic as-big-as-a-baby’s-head amazingly beautiful poppies that were growing in a raised bed roadside garden in beautiful Ballard, WA…

I currently have this last one—>
as my desktop background…I love it!
That red-orange glow just makes me smile.
Hey, would you like to use it as your desktop too?
You would? Well, let me know by leaving a comment and I’ll send you the full-sized version of it for your desktop for free!
Why? Because I like you :)

Here’s hoping for more sun very soon! ::: crossing fingers :::

Puget Sound Indie Arts (PSIA) Art & Craft Show @ ArtWorks in Edmonds, WA
Saturday May 10, 2008 – 9:30am to 4:30pm

Oh Boy! There’s nothing better than a craft show. Well…unless that craft show is handing out FREE “swag” bags. Not just ANY swag bags either…these are totally Handmade Bags Stuffed FULL of Handmade Goodies from Puget Sound artists! The catch? Only the first 50 customers through the door will get one, so you’d better be there when we open at 9:30am!

Can’t make it to the show by 9:30am? Well, you’re in luck! Once an hour, we’ll be giving a “Super Swag Bag” away to a lucky shopper (you must be present to win).

Yep. That sounds like a winning combination to me.
Wanna check it out? What? You’ll *think* about it? Hm…did you see the word FREE up there? Yeah…you want to be there…I saw the swag bags and the stuff that’s in them…You DEFINITELY want to be there! :)

Here’s a complete list of the artists who will bet there:

Sweetpeacardgifts – she’s the organized this show!

Please stop by and say hello!
Super-Secret Just-For-You Bonus:
Mention this post and I’ll give you a free gift with any Tote2Go! purchase
(More FREE stuff!? Wowee! Now you HAVE to be there :)
