I am having fun using Etsy and trying to find my groove. There is so much going on there and it feels like you can spend the whole day hanging on Etsy. But that would not be productive, would it?

I think I interrupted an intimate conversation here. Emmett and Alice spend the day on my bed. So cute.  

It is pretty obvious which is the girl and which is the boy. ;) The fuzzy brown blanket is laid out each morning to protect my bedding from getting nasty!!!

I wish everyone a wonderful week and will leave you with this photo of Simon Beck’s artwork. This is certainly something I have never seen before! 

He creates art in the snow using his skills from being a mapmaker. So amazing since the images are huge! Can you see the little people in the foreground? He is also the art’s photographer. See more here.



  1. Your necklace is amazing!
    Congrats on being in and making your first etsy treasury. I love making them. It's fun.
    Your cats names are Emmett and Alice. Am I right when I suppose they are named after caracters of Twilight? :)

  2. Congrats on being in your first treasury! And making your first! I'm glad Etsy is working out so well for you :)
    My parents always did the same thing with an extra blanket to keep the dog hair off!
    That snow art is SO cool!

  3. Love the big red heart pendant! So pretty! And congratulations on getting included in a treasury. Yay! I know...Etsy is addictive :)
    Awww...your kitties look very sweet. So nice they get along! I hope Sammy and Leo will get along one day too!
    I don't like snow, but the art work is very cool!
    have a wonderful weekend!!

    p.s. that's a very sweet photo of you. Love it :)

  4. Your Jasper Heart is just so pretty...and that the drill hole is off to the side a bit makes it even better :-) The treasury is really a lovely one to be a part of...those lava earrings are so cool! Your cuties do look like they are saying "go away. we are talking here! "
    Hope you stay warm and have a great week, Val!

  5. I love the necklace, earthy, but pretty. Congrats on the treasury. I, too, have not as yet figured out how to embed a treasury into my blog. It's frustrating. Love the cats. I have three and they have never learned to "play nice". But, they do tolerate each other and don't fight. The snow drawing is amazing. I live in Hawai'i so don't know much about snow other than it's too cold for me. It's 68 degree right now and I'm freezing!

  6. Val I simply love that necklace! it is gorgeous - but then I LOVE jasper!! The treasury is beautiful - will need to check it out on Etsy. and really love those snow designs - he is amazing ... and LOVE your kitties :)

  7. that's a beautiful necklace. here is a link to a site to place a treasury into your blog post. :0)

  8. That is a lovely heart! I certainly could spend all day on etsy, but you are right it wouldn't be productive :)

  9. Hi Val, I have to check out that snow artist, amazing. I love your jasper heart, it is so pretty.

    I still haven't gotten a treasury going on ETSY yet, I keep meaning to but never do. I probably really should. Is it an easy process? Maybe I will give it a whirl.

    Well, your cats are adorable and hanging out in bed all day, especially in the cold, really is a happy thought. Have a great week.

    Ruth the earrings, they arrived yesterday.

  10. Val!!!! that necklace is perfect for Valentines day!!! it looks like a heart :)

  11. Yepee on the treasuries!!! I have to make some! They take a lot of time, but it's worth it! And, you are right, you can spend hours on Etsy, but you know, it is good! The more people know you, the better ;o) Love the heart necklace! Very pretty and I love your kitties ;o) The snow art is amazing! Have a great one ;o)

  12. Cute new piece! And congrats on all of those treasuries! Cute kitties;)

  13. Congratulations on the treasury! Those stones are so rich and warm. And yes, the cats are saying, "Is there something you want?"

  14. A very big congratulations to you, Val! It is a beautiful necklace, and this is so truly well-deserved.
    Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.

    P.S. Emmett and Alice are absolutely adorable!

  15. Congrats on being in a treasury! It looks like you had some great company in your treasury. Your necklace is beautiful, that jasper heart is pretty amazing.

  19. Love your necklace and congrats on the treasury!

    I also wanted to reply to your comment on my blog post but for some reason it came as a "no-reply" in the mail address. Drop me an email and I'll respond... and also give you the info you need to imbed an Etsy Treasury.

  20. Your necklace is beautiful and congrats on being featured. I use this same site to embed treasuries too: You can play around to get the one that best suits your blog post size. Some have thumbnails and others are larger and have the names right underneath the photos. Have fun embedding!
