I've Been Busy!!

This stack of Microwave Bowl Potholders says everything!  This was the "before" pile - that is before I went to today's craft show.  The stack is significantly smaller now.  So it is back to the sewing room to replenish the supply for next week's show.


Here is the description I use for my ETSY listings:

Warming up some soup? Making oatmeal? Having some leftovers for lunch or dinner? Are you tired of wrestling those hot bowls/containers from the microwave? Here's a new kind of microwave potholder - a Microwave Bowl Holder that will make this task much easier on the hands!.

This Microwave Bowl Potholder has two layers of of a special Microwave 100% cotton batting on the inside and 100% cotton coordinating fabric on the outside.  Just nestle your bowl/container inside the potholder, put both in the microwave, and easily remove when your food is done without getting your fingers hot.

Like ice cream but would prefer not to get cold hands while eating? Just put the bowl of ice cream (or perhaps the ice cream container itself) in the bowl and enjoy your ice cream without get chilly fingers!


These make great gifts for everyone on your list!

Hope you're having a great weekend!

EasyPeasy BNS (Buy and Stay) Preview

Definition of Easy-Peasy:  adjective meaning very easy

Definition of BNS
   -Buy and Stay
   -In Etsy Treasuryland, this means the 16 shops that are featured, stay in the treasury during the entire round of buying

Shopping Begins:  The 1st Round of the EasyPeasy BNS will be open for purchases the morning of Sunday October 30 at 8:00 CST.  

The rules:  Minimum buy is $4 (after any discounts and before shipping).  You can buy anything in these 16 shops to qualify.  The 1st 15 buyers will be featured in the EasyPeasy BNS Round 2 that starts Sunday November 6.   When you make a purchase, leave a comment IN CAPS (so it catches my attention), with your Shop Name, the shop you bought from, what you bought, and the ETSY transaction id.  (Leave the comment in the treasury comments, not here.)  That's it!  Simply Easy Peasy!

And here is a preview of EasyPeasy BNS Round 1!

Oct 30 Update:  The Easy Peasy BNS - Round 1 Treasury is now open!


A big thanks to all of the UWIB, Unique Women in Business, members who volunteered for the 1st round!

Joyful Expressions

Starting Thursday an exciting new shop is opening in Hudson, WI - it is just a hop, skip, and a jump from the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.  It is stocked with all kinds of handmade Fall gifts, art, and home decor when it opens to the public this Thursday.  You'll find moszics, photography, paper art, soap, blown glass, scarves, jewelry, home decor, cards, journals, stained glass, and much, much more!

Breast Cancer Blog Hop

Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are having a Breast Cancer Blog Hop over these next few days. Here are a couple of my cards that have been made with The Angel Company stamps and paper (sigh, they have closed their doors, but I still love this particular stamp set).  You may have seen these in an earlier post.  I intended to create some new cards, but life just got in the way......



Thanks for stopping by...
