Yep, I did it! I opened an Etsy shop. I have been thinking about it for awhile and decided it was time. I need an outlet. Right now, there are only a few things there. I am working on some scrappy embellishments and fun tags to sell too. I am also doing a few baby related items. Those should be up sometime soon. As soon as I find a supplier of cute onesies to alter. I'm so excited to start this... I will be featured some of my art on there soon too. Here's the link : Florish and Bling

Okay, I forgot all about Serendipity Sunday! It was Mother's Day and well, I was being mothered. We went out to lunch with the IL's and then dinner at Mom and Dad's. The kids were fine until later in the day... Mark got wound up and was being extra sassy. My dad even had had enough of him. Well, not him in general, just his attitude. He never gets annoyed with him, so you can imagine how annoying he was being. Over all, it was a nice day.

So, onto my Serendipity Wednesday picks (for this week only)... back to our regular schedule next week.

Copperinc's shop on Etsy is full of journal like prints and text incorporated into paintings or commentary on everyday life. The drawings are charming and the images are figurative mostly... Here is one of my favorites in her shop... Grumpy People

And this one... Her Pretty Manners

PearsonMaron's shop is fun and whimsical... I LOVE this little sculpture. Cloud Factory... simply adorable and child like. There is a whole series of these... I think I must have this one or the Rainbow Factory! So cute!
The above sculpture is also based on lore and tall tales. LOVE that it is mostly white with a hint of color for interest. This would be charming in a child's room or knick knack shelf. I am charmed.

CottonBird Shop is adorable little birds made of papers and old vintage maps. Just genius! It's my bird love talking!!! I just love these so much... especially the house with the birdie. I'm all about old vintage papers and fabrics right now too!
They are so cute and fun that I want a whole flock for my artroom!

Okay, that's it for today... I'll be back tomorrow with another video tutorial... BTW.. if you are having difficulty hearing me over my playlist, just pause the playlist music for the duration of the video clip. I love my playlist so I don't want to take it off, but it is irritating to try to hear me on the video over the loud music. Sorry.... Enjoy the day. It's a gorgeous one here. XOXO
