Sock Monkey!

So little, so cute - so socky!

I'm having far too much fun coming up with new block prints and little stamps - here's my latest, a sock monkey.

Item of the Day!

One of my favorite "time wasters" is to punch in random words to search on Etsy. Tonight I tried the combination: Moose Booger, but alas, nothing came up. So the second item that popped into my head was Caviar - and on page 2 of the search results, these beautiful earrings appeared by LoopsDesigns.

Very nice!

Current Craft Challenges!

This month features some interesting craft challenges around the net!

Crafster is featuring a "Super Ugly to Super Awesome" challenge that involves revamping a thrift store/flea market item and taking it from awful to brilliant! The prizes are great and the scope is pretty broad - just about anyone could think of a good entry for this one.
Entries are due December 1st through 5th, so there's plenty of time!

The EtsyMN Street Team is challenging members to submit an entry for their December challenge with a snow/ice theme. I've gotten my entry in, can't wait to see the others!
Posted items are due by November 30th - the details aren't posted on the blog yet, but their on the Yahoo Group pages.

New holiday/winter cards are in, after a long night of carving this stamp, I inked it with a delicate mixed blue and printed up a batch of lovely cards.

I've actually posted a tutorial or "how-to" on if you're interested in viewing the process.

I also used it as my December, 2007 challenge entry with my Street Team group!
