Nambaro wood and sterling ring by Naturale Zanica

Reclaimed barn wood tea light holders by Paradise Hill Designs

Coffee table made from recycled mango wood by Seguin Wood Works



New fun cocktail rings! Enamel on copper, the disc is formed to a concave cup. Each one is different, some have added glass for texture. The ring shank is adjustable plated metal, so one size will fit most! A few are listed in the shop now, look for more in weeks to come!


Fabrics for sale

I have several yards of Marimekko designer fabric for sale. I snatched them up at a going out of business sale, used what I needed and now have yardage leftover for you! They are all heavy cottons, so can be used for making bags, table covers, home goods, window treatment etc. The prints are limited edition. I am selling it by the yard, $9 a yard, which according to ebay is a steal. The red fabric didn't photograph too well, but it's a print of dark red fir tree branches on a lighter red background. The paisley gold is slightly metallic. Leave a comment if you are interested with your email so I can get in touch.

You guessed it!

That handsome and brave guy surrounded by those foxy crafty ladies is Etsy's very own V.P., Matt! He was in Charm City on Friday and met up with us at Rocket to Venus for drinks and some crafty talk. So Whitney guessed right and wins $5 off any item in my shop, good till Jan. 1st 2009. Whitney, email me and I will give you the "code" to use. Thanks!



Any idea who this handsome fella is with me outside of Rocket to Venus in Hampden??? Care to hazard a guess? There might be a little surprise in it for you if you get it right! Here's a hint- no he's not my hubby, although Mr. Dandelion is very handsome himself! And to my team members- sorry you can't guess, you already know who he is!

Barack Attack!

This is the only item I managed to buy at Sunday's Crafty Bastards Show. And I didn't even leave the booth to get it! My loyally assistant disappeared for a while and came back sporting this political beauty, amoung other crafty purchases. I've been looking for something to wear to show my support, and the average t-shirt wasn't cutting it. So when I saw this necklace by Brookadelphia, I had to have one, and the assistant ran out and snatched the last gold one. Not only is it really cute, the best part is that the designers are giving $10 from ever purchased necklace to the Obama campaign. So wear you political views around your neck, add a little "bama bling" to wardrobe, and support the campaign!
