Another Treasury!

Wow another lucky day with Etsy means another lucky treasury opening for me. This time I chose to go with a peachy keen theme. I just adore this colour from the light peaches to the brighter hues.

Did a little shopping on etsy today. I treated myself to this yummy handmade soap with sweet orange essential oil and oatmeal flakes. Looks good enough to eat! Love this soap too and want to get your hands on some check out BLSoaps shop on etsy!
After treating myself to some wonderful soap I indulged in some lip balm too. Oh how I can't wait to get this on my lips. Filled with flavors of juicy oranges, rich vanilla cream, and hints of tangerine and caramel. How divine does that sound? You just have to get some for yourself. You can find this lip balm by visiting BLSoaps shop on etsy!

My First Treasury Ever!

Finally the day has come where I've lucked out and snagged my very first treasury on my favorite site to buy and sell all things handmade, Etsy. The treasury is a member-curated gallery of short-lived lists. It functions as a high-demand and promotional tool that many devoted Etsians fight to get. Members can feature their favorite items, items selected on a theme, or just however they like. What better way to celebrate than a tribute to winter which will soon be here. I just love every single piece of winter white I found to include in my treasury which was entitled "Winter Wonderland." I can't wait to create my next one!

After having been so thrilled creating my very first treasury it got even better. I was lucky enough to have been selected in knitsationals treasury entitled "Scarlett Beauty." A collection of beautiful rich reds. Absolutely perfect for this fall season. Thank you so much for including my autumn earrings in this gorgeous treasury.

I woke up sick today with a head cold so didn't have enough oomph to do anything too productive I did play with some ribbon though and made my first ever boutique hair bow. I think it turned out pretty good for a newbie. Thanks to etsy member Shelleybeansbowtique for her awesome help and advice on bow making!

With the weather as cold and rainy as it has been and the days getting darker quicker. It can start to get you down causing you to have the fall blues. Not wanting to do any housework, beading or anything else productive what better way than to stuff your face with chocolate. Right out of the package with no baking necessary I decided to make some nanaimo bars. A wafer crumb-based layer, topped by a layer of vanilla butter icing, which is drizzled in yummy chocolate. Very rich and sweet but oh so good! A yummy treat for all you chocolate lovers =)

Christmas Is Fast Approaching!

Wow it's already a few days into November. Halloween just finished and now the stores have already begun to put out their Christmas themed items. Winter is almost here. Just yesterday felt like summer. Christmas time is my favorite time of the year. Celebrating with family and friends, such a warm and happy time of the year! With the economy the way it is right now, I'm thinking homemade gifts from the heart is one of the best types of gifts to give. So glad I love crafting. What are your gift plans this Christmas?
