Thanks to friends from Texas to Tel Aviv, I have been included in two STUNNING treasuries this week!

This second treasury- "Sugar Hills and Purple Dreams"- is a mixture of fantasy items & art prints in gorgeous plum and golden hues that fairly glow with magic!!

Fire Fairy~ Cheery Thought for a Winters Day



The snow is finally melting, but its been foggy and dreary here for several days. Dont get me wrong, I love the fog, but I decided we could all use a bit of sunshine and cheery thoughts! Fire Moon is a lovely fairy we met this past fall at the Des Moines Renaissance Festival...if you look closely you will see she has a sun orange crystal Goddess Ear Cuff to accent all her fiery finery:)

Headdress for an Elven Snow Queen


Its been of the snowiest winters we have had here in Kansas for years (starting with our very own Christmas Blizzard), but it made for fun photography!

This is our latest Alphonse Mucha inspired Elven Headdress design- Ian calls it the Snow Queen in his DragonRider Circlets shop and I have included it in the Sapphire Ice collection at Thyme2dream ArtFire

So I was on Etsy's Front page yesterday...

...but being me, I totally missed it:) This post will show you how I discovered that fact and includes some helpful links to nifty Etsy Apps & Tools.

Our Mucha inspiredArt Nouveau Elven Headdress was featured on Etsy's front page yesterday afternoon! I totally missed it, but thanks to the My Etsy Facebook Application it was automatically posted on my profile, so I knew something was up.



I was still a bit mystified as to how/where I was featured so I did a bit of detective work. First I checked on Twitter - sure enough, one of my friends had sent an @reply telling me she saw me there (Thank you jenniferdarezzo.etsy.com).

At that point I had been down enough rabbit trails for the day so didnt do any more sleuthing til this evening when I suddenly remembered Craft Cult. They have a lot of fun things on the site, including The Vault, which has an archive of all Etsy front pages searchable by member name and date- quite a handy thing!! I checked and sure enough there it was...they also have a cute little widget thingie which is how I posted the list here for you to see. (TIP: click on the widget to go to the vault page- from there you can click to access the individual listings if you are interested:)

Its amazing how many handy tools there are out there for internet craft sellers- I hope some of these come in handy for you. I will be featuring a few more in the coming weeks here on my blog so stay tuned;)
