"Joy" to you and me!

Here's great news for those of you who like to print your own greetings.  Just visit for absolutely adorable original art designed for you to purchase and then use with your own computer and printer.  The example I've chosen to the right is one of her precious Kokeshi Doll designs, but there are so many more from which to choose.  She'll even help you personalize the items.  Take a chance on looking soon;  you'll be glad you did!

"Moo"vin' on to the Super Bowl

It was impossible to resist!  But it was impossible to find a cow with a cheesehead in a Packer Jersey!  We in Packer Nation (aka most of Wisconsin) are always proud of our dairy industry and our green Bay Packers, but today we're udderly full of pride and milking it for all it's worth.  Our Pack defeated the Chicago Bears yesterday to earn a place in Superbowl XLV.  So on February 6, the Pack will face a very worthy opponent, the Pittsburgh Steelers.  GO, PACK!!

What do you think?

My Etsy Bloggers Team has asked what business goals we have for 2011 and I'm torn. My first inclination was to say I want to be the "scrubbie queen" of Etsy, but I can't let go of wanting to really promote the pine needle baskets.
Certainly, the nylon net scrubbies are great sellers: they're practical, inexpensive, and kind of cute. You can see two of the apple scrubbies here with a small basket.
But if you check out the second picture, I wonder if you agree with me that the baskets are a greater art form. Even though they are practical, they are pricey, and far fewer folks know about this type of basket.
Which are you more likely to order? Have you tried the scrubbies? Do you know about pine needle art? Any ideas or thoughts would truly be appreciated!

Color My World

What child, no matter what the age, doesn't love a new box of crayons? It's just hard to keep that bulky box handy. This is the soloution: a crayon keeper that won't "bug" you! In fact, the bug with her polka dots and cheery colors would make a great way to carry those lucious crayons. This one is by Just click the link to see her many fun fabric designs and enjoy your walk through her great shop! I know I did!!
