Mom-Prenuers Shop-a-thon

Buy from women this holiday season!

Tip Junkie is having a Holiday Shop-a-thon, and my little shop is a part of it.
She says:
I'd like to encourage each of you to support other women and mothers this season by purchasing many of your gifts from Mom-prenuers like these!

I'm so inspired by their talents and drive to help support their families. My hope is that you will be too. Please blog about your favorite products and don't forget to place your orders directly from them.

The holidays will be here before we know it, so start shopping!

The purpose of this Mom-prenuer Shop-a-thon is to feature unique, fun, and creative gifts you can purchase for your friends, family and yourself this holiday season.

There are so many varied and wonderful shops participating! To see all of them you can click here, or click on the mom-prenuer button on my sidebar.

Thankful necklace

In a matter of days our weather went from 80 degrees to freezing with snow. We have crazy weather in Utah!

The sudden change in temperature made me think about the holidays we have coming up, especially Thanksgiving. It is one of my favorite holidays, and I love its reminder to be thankful.
In spite of all the turmoil in the world our household is still stable and I'm so thankful for that! I think we could all remember a little more often how much we have to be thankful for.

I hope this necklace will be a wonderful reminder.

You can find it in my shop.

A few things I've worked on this week

On Sunday we celebrated my sister-in-law's birthday. This was her gift:

And a couple of other necklaces:

This one says "Let your dreams take flight".

This little faith necklace is domed and I love how it cradles the pearl.

Maybe I should off hand stamped earrings in the shop...
What do you think?

Etsy Treasury

Don't forget to vote! ------->

The front page of Etsy is a coveted spot for all etsy shops, it gets you quite a bit of publicity. Quite frequently the front page selection is chosen from one of the many treasury lists that people have created. It will usually be centered around a specific color or theme. The better the items coordinate the more popular they are, and they also have a better chance of being chosen for the front page.

I'm so excited that right now one of my necklaces is in a treasury, you can see it here for the next two days (until it expires).

Here is another one from a few days ago.

It's so exciting to have one of my items chosen!

And last night I stayed up late and was able to create a treasury of my own!!! (They are hard to get.) Check it out here before it expires...

This necklace was inspired by one of our favorite bedtime stories, Goodnight Moon.
Wouldn't it be a cute gift for a teacher?
