I joined swagbucks the other day as I’m a bit of an addict about earning free stuff sometimes. I spend enough time on the computer so I like that this site has a search toolbar that awards me points I can use for gift cards. If I’m going to search online might as well get something for it right?
If you are one of those people who shop online or like to play games you’d like it even more. (They actually give a way a lot of free codes almost daily on their facebook page too)
Now if only Etsy would join with them so I could get points on there for shipping life would be great wouldn’t it?

I joined to Etsy Art Circle Team this week and this is the very first team treasury I have created for the Etsy Art Circle! It’s so easy to choose items from such a gorgeous team selection!

Don’t forget this weekend is Cleveland’s Ingenuity Festival. There’s a new location this year. While I’ll miss the gorgeous views of the of the old location it will be interesting to see how they adapt to a new space. The Festival will take place on September 14 – 16 at Docks 32 and 30 which sit on the lakefront north of Browns Stadium and the Great Lakes Science Center.
The art, performances, and exhibitions run Friday September 14th-Sunday September 16th

This has got to be one of the most fantastic contests I have seen in awhile. Shabby Apple is hosting a contest in which you can win an entire years worth of shabby apple dresses. Yes, ONE dress for every month of the year until October 2013! I would LOVE to win a prize like that. I’m nice though and am willing to share the contest with you (well, and I want an extra entry into the contest too!)
There are so many great dresses to choose from too!
Maybe “blue eyes”
Oh, it’s a good thing there are so many months in the year! So get over to the Shabby Apple Blog for details on how to win!

Happy October! It’s time to get in the Fall and Halloween spirit for sure now. The other day I came across the shop Cart Before the Horse on Etsy and just fell in love with their exquisite work. The shop is run by Dylan and Jo out of Portland Oregon (You should check out their cute profile picture on Etsy—it’s priceless!)
They make incredible contemporary folk art pieces. Though they stock everything from paper dolls to fairies, cute animals (and some truly fun “taxidermy” for your wall), today in the spirit of October I want to share some of their Halloween and Day of the Dead pieces which happen remind me a bit of 1930s style.
Prices range anywhere from $12 – $220 so you can find something to fit your budget, or a truly unique heirloom.
Halloween Black Cat Banner Garland
Tiny Day of the Dead Skeleton Ornament (It’s all hand painted!)
Halloween Pumpkin Jack O Lantern Girl Portrait (Look how it’s multi-dimensional!)
Black Cat Ornament

I happily stumbled across a fabulous application this morning. It’s called The Favoritizer, and it allows you to organize all your Etsy favorites! I’ve long time wondered why Etsy themselves hasn’t offered this on their site, as it can make creating shopping lists for specific people, groups of items for treasury making, and creating specific wish lists so much easier! You simply log into your Etsy account, then refresh the favoritizer any time you want to load item you have hearted and the favoritizer allows you to put them in any categories you choose and save them to those categories. Genius! Visit https://favoritizer.checklet.com to start organizing yours!
