Random Goodness

I am proud to announce the arrival of Shrinky Dink goodies at WhiMSy love! I listed this ice cream cone pendant yesterday & all week I'll be adding more fun shrinky stuff.

I was outside yesterday with my girls & I thought I'd play around with some leaf photography. I held the leaf up to the sun & then took a picture. The leaf looks like it's glowing. And those colors are simply yummy.

And I was SUPER busy this weekend kickin' out my cupcake memo pad project. I went a little crazy. I made 6 dozen of those little babies! They're made in 6 different styles. And I've decided to offer them as freebies at WhiMSy love for November AND December, "while supplies last."

Another thing I've decided to do is this: I thought it would be fun to offer an option to purchase the freebies I give out. Like, if a customer receives one of these adorable memo pads & decides she'd love to purchase several as stocking stuffers, she COULD! I know this is not a NEW idea, but it's a new idea for me. And I'm gonna try to mix up the freebies I give out & leave a note in my Etsy shop each month so people can see what that months freebie is. Maybe give a sneak peek at the next months freebie too.

And I have to show you what I got my BFF for her birthday. It was so much fun peeking at the "hearted" items in her Etsy shop, Little Daisy Chains, to see what I could find as a gift. Her hubby just got her a sewing machine & she is an extreme novice sewer (is that a word?). I found the most adorable sewing set created by Jenn at Jenn Maruska Design! I thought it'd be the perfect way to christen her sewing machine. And, not only is it fun to support a fellow Etsy peep (& by the way, aren't Jenn's product photos amazing?) but Jenn's a Washingtonian too. Score! Oh, & DOUBLE score because the gift actually arrived to Beck ON her birthday!! Triple Score: She LOVED it! Happy Birthday Beck!!! Love you tons!
P.S.--You may have noticed I added a music playlist to my blog. I've been wanting to do this for a while & so I finally did it! Yay for tunes!
