Happy holidays!

I decided to actually make a Christmas-themed treasury! What is the world coming to? I really don't like red and green together that much, but it's still pretty cute and there are a lot of awesome FAETeam items. Isn't the red yeti just adorable?

I was also included in a holiday-themed treasury by Mermaiden!

I like that we both included the same faerie door ornament but otherwise our treasuries are completely different :)

Holiday Deadlines

Soul Eater is the only red and green item in my shop. Somehow I don't think he quite exemplifies the holiday spirit, but he does illustrate how I feel after fighting holiday crowds in the stores.

Anyway, it is that wonderful time of year when you have to start wondering whether the things that you order will arrive in time for the holidays. Oh no! I'm here to tell you that if you are an international customer, I don't know if your order will arrive before Christmas if you order it now, but I'll be happy to ship it to you anyway. US customers, you should have no worries. However, I will stop shipping after December 15th and may even put my shop into vacation mode.

Local people: I can deliver! And if you're a personal friend or family member, you can even come to my house and shop for jewelry in person, although you will have to pay a horrible price -- you will get licked by the corgis.

One last thing. Sales have been picking up, and everything that I make is one of a kind, so if you have your eye on something don't hesitate! Seize the day!

Pouted too soon!

After a dry spell of treasury features, in the past two days I have been included in two holiday-themed treasuries! The above was created by FaerieKat to thank the curators who had included her work in their collections, and includes my beautiful white crystal necklace.

Christmas time in the FAE by wonderful costumer Rhonda features items from FAETeam -- and not all of them are holiday-themed, they just fit the lovely holiday color scheme. I am happy to have a pair of my chandelier earrings included.

When visiting these treasuries please remember to give the curators some love!

Magic for the Holidays

A collection of magical gifts from FAETeam.

Yet another week with no treasury features for me. I think I'm going to pout! Well, not really. Everyone's pretty busy getting ready for the holidays now. I almost didn't even make a treasury yesterday but I had a few spare minutes so I came up with an easy theme and it pretty much built itself.

Hard to photograph

I love these glass cabs with printed images, but they are so tricky to photograph! I always end up with lots of glare and reflection. I can't decide if I should list this one with the photos I already have or if I should try to get better ones.

Busy busy!

I'm busy making holiday presents, which of course I can't post here because then I might accidentally spoil some surprises. Instead, have a picture of Topher. Awww, such a fluffy kitty!

Winter has arrived early in Arizona, by the way. It's been cold and rainy, there's snow on the mountains, and I am ever so glad for my warm fuzzy robe, cuddly pets, and the vast amount of tea in my cabinet.

Remember the Muffin Tin?

I made this necklace as part of the Muffin Tin Challenge earlier this year and then never got it listed on Etsy. This was the only photo that turned out from the first batch so I had to take more. Then only one turned out from the second batch! So I'm still waiting to add a close-up to the listing, but if you like what you see from a distance you can make Green Guardian Dragon Necklace your very own.

And if you're wondering why I didn't keep this one, since I love olive green and bronze together, and I love dragons, the simple answer is that I already have necklaces in this color scheme that I like even better. It's pretty similar to my Garuda necklace, in fact, so I felt like it was best to put this one in the shop and let some other green-lover add it to her collection.

There she stands, this lovely creature

Treasury inspired by the Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds song Lovely Creature, and my attempts to work out a belly dance solo to it. Also inspired by items in my Etsy favorites, as you can tell from all the olive shades.
