Wonderful Wanderings on Etsy

Wanted to share with you some handmade gifts and accessories I found on Etsy.

This pastel pinwheel bracelet and earrings set looks like so much fun to wear. I can so see myself wearing it to the upcoming state fair. It's from GoddessJewelsUK.

OOAK Pastel pinwheel bracelet and earrings set, sweet and summery

Great idea for party favors was found in oneofakindbabydesign's shop. Can't you just see these lined up on the table as cake is being served?

For the book lover in me there's this durable bookmark from lizbethsgarden that I won't be able to rip.

I'm just amazed at the details of RevolutionCoOp's embroidered pendant necklaces. I'd go blind trying to get anywhere close to the detail she's able to pull.

As a mother that constantly has to deal with travel tissues in those flimsy plastic packs, this is a colorful, clean solution that littlechampart has in her shop.

One of the best things about being out and away from the city life is watching the dragonflies swoop down to the pond for a drink of water. This keepsake box from GrapeVineCeramicsGft reminds me of those days fondly.

Wow, that was fun!  I loved all these and I hope you do too.

Lazy Daze 2011 vs. Hurricane Irene

And Irene won out. It was both sad and a relief that they canceled the festival. I was so looking forward to seeing everyone. In the spirit of carrying on, Cary officials are launching a virtual Lazy Daze Arts & Crafts Festival next week.

So, in effort to make the most of this I have been busy adding items to my Artfire shop. I've added alot and I mean alot and there's more still to come.  Thank goodness I already had the photos on hand. Here's some of the items that are available.

Purple Flop Ear Bunny Charm
Seamus of the Guild of Good Luck Owls
Pink Ice Cream Business Card ID Wallet
Lollipop Case for EReaders and Tablets
Jack Skellington Inspired Cell Phone Case
Please stop by my shop and see all the new crocheted cases and amigurumi plushes. I've put in so much effort to create this non-wearable fiber art specifically for Lazy Daze. My next show is going to be in three weeks at BazaarSPARK in downtown Raleigh and I'd really much rather make more stuff than clean house.

Lazy Daze 2011 Are we there yet?

It's almost time for Lazy Daze!  This is one of the best arts and craft festival around. It's been confirmed as Southeast Tourism Society's Top 20 Events for August 2011!

Last year there was 50, 000 people there enjoying the festivities. This year I'll be there as a vendor and not as a customer for the first time. It's going to be awesome!

Inaugural year of Lazy Daze
What's really cool about this is that I remember riding my bike to the festival as a kid. I only lived a couple of blocks away and it was one of the few events that my mother would let me go to unattended. I'd spend all day there shopping and looking and shopping some more. I'd come home with trinkets and charms. Still have some in fact. But I digress.

I've got alot of new items never before seen. Here's a little bit that I'll have.

While Lazy Daze has the Where's Jerry Contest, you can ask me "Where's Perry?"

There's a monster with a strange little smile waiting for you.

Pussycat Ereader Case

This kitty cat case was really fun to create. So many other cases are dull and boring. I wanted to make one with a bit of flair, a bit os pizazz, something that says "Me-ow!" Perfect for the cat or animal lover.

This particular case is in royal blue with orange accents. Your's will be custom made with your color preferences. It can be made to look realistic or in bright red or green. I can also integrate fun fur into it for a fuzzy look. It's up to you.


What's color is your cat ereader?

Cupcake Nook Case

Here's a delicious way to store your Kindle, Nook, or similar reader.

Cupcake clutch style case is perfect for your Kindle or Nook Color.  The stitch I use give 3 layers of yarn between the ereader and the beads for a padded effect and the beads don't poke through.

Perfect for the young, the young at heart. Great as a Sweet 16 or Quinceanera gift. Pastry chef that loves to read? Couldn't be better!
This is a custom item so you can pick out your frosting preference. Chocolate lover? Got it! Want it without beaded sprinkles? Okay! Just convo your preferences when you order. Show your love for cupcakes your way.
