Fun, simple and not overly expensive! I tried the whole bead loom thing back in school and it never stuck. So these types of items always intrigue me. I also fell in love with an opal bracelet. I love opal because it's my birthstone, and according to the listing, honey opal "is said to promote emotional healing and to be soothing for those with strong emtions". My husband would tell you that I need to go ahead and order it. I personally like the selection cause I feel like it can fit different styles.
I love to dye stuff! It's like therapy for me. I am so glad that I am getting to dye some play silks tonight. I'm also stretching my baking muscles. I promised my son a Wow Wow Wubbzy cake for his birthday, so I am doing a test cake.
So the most Christmas-y item I have for sale in my etsy shop would be these adorable penguin note cards. Not only are they great to send Christmas notes, they also double for any occasion winter note cards, if you happen to be like me and forget a family member's card. $5.00 for a set of three, with hand stamped envelopes. The cards themselves have a penguin, while the envelopes have an owl and a set of hedgehogs.
First things first... OMG I <3 Soap! I could just imagine the smells of them as I was searching through the listings. Patchouli? I love that. Cinnamon? Check. Now I find myself digging through my essential oils just to feel my house with the scent. I love handmade soap. It makes me feel cleaner, as odd as that sounds. The soaps come in attractive packaging. The link above (thanks to my spiffy new add on - ScribeFire) is to a stocking stuffer. It's a half of bar of soap in a cute little bag. The only problem I have now is making up my mind.
