Happy Monday! Blog Feature!

Welcome to the very First Feature from Starrydance! I will feature at least one Etsy Artisan, Crafter or Artist every week, but my first feature had to be one of my very Favorite STORES ---- Treatsoap!

I ordered this early last week, and I can not say how overwhelmingly happy I am with the fantastic array of Soaps I recieved! Look at them all, and feeeeeeeel the happy! Shown in the image above is The Group of Deliciousness!

Treatsoap of Etsy's: Lemony Coconut Sweet Cream Cupcake Soap, Chocolately Glorious Peacock, Acorn Soap, Celtic Green Irish Tweed Soap for Men (as if Id share), Bee My Honey Soap, and the VERY BEST Warm Pumpkin Spice Donut Soap!

Also a chat room regular, Treatsoap is always so happy, shares the love of others artwork and always has a kind and uplifting word to all of us that are working so hard on the Etsy-ness!

The Glorious Peacock - and man IS IT. The smell is just completely divine, and the little details are just beautiful! Miriam always packages things so beautifully too - ribbons, Organza Bags, and little hand written labels!

The CHOCOLATE Glorious Peacock! Its Mine, and no you cant have it. Looks, smells, and I bet it even TASTES like the real thing - not taste tested... YET! =3

Totally my favorite, this Warm Pumpkin Donut soap smells of Autumn - cinnamon and rich, a truly decadent treat for yourself - because trust me you arent gonna wanna share! =D

This is also another household WOAH, thats SOAP?! moment - this *large* beautiful cupcake has a wonderful fresh coconut lemon scent - I use it as my hand soap after painting and otherwise making a mess in my studio and feel so delicious afterwards.

Treatsoap is just fantastic person, artisan, and overall what I feel Etsy is all about! Dont miss her, folks, and remember to order spares for everyone that sees and WANTS TOO! <3

Bookmarks Now on Etsy! <3

Originally uploaded by starrydance

Just added to my Etsy Shop, my Mini Bookmarks!

I truly think this is my favorite product - they are printed on the same paper, with the same 8 color printing process, as my amazing prints! 68lb Luster / Satin Acid Free Paper, Archival Inks, and an Acid Free Vinyl Sleeve for it to rest in - plus a beautiful chainette Tassel! <3

This Bookmark is beautiful, shiny, look as wonderful and lustrous as the original paintings - and will last as long as your books - or even longer! ^_^

They are available in my Etsy Shop: www.Starrydance.Etsy.Com individually for $3.50 each - and I even offer a 3-for-$9 Deal! I truly love these bookmarks, and hope you will too!

The Very First Monday Look at What I got! =3 Part Two!

Originally uploaded by starrydance

One of my favorite people to talk to in Etsy - Chat room is FaeriedTreasures and finally I saved up enough for one of her necklaces!

I also got lucky and was the 75th sale so I got extra presents too! They come packaged so neatly and sparkly and full of <3! I have many more pictures available over at my Flickr : Hooray for Flickr!

I have a few more to share that were trades but Blogspot is apparently tired of me adding photos, so more later I hope! ^_^

The Very First Monday Look at What I got! =3

Ive been getting so many beautiful things on Etsy I figured, it was time to start SHARING all the beautiful things! Well, ok, not sharing because they are mine - but you can look at the shiney pictures!

One of the first things on Etsy I got was this beautiful pair of Unicorn Hair clips from RachelMunoz as a pair! Arent they adorable? She packaged them so lovely too - wrapped like a little present AND a coupon! So, I had to go back and see more and then noticed she had Halloween ones! So, A Custom Order Later...

Now I have Four pairs! Hooray! Of course now I was addicted to adding things to my favorites and trying to get one or two small things a week so then I decided .... I dont have enough Necklaces (Really, I dont!) and got ....

This stunningly beautiful 22" Necklace based on "Stardust" and of course, a Unicorn too! Notice the little heart on the pendant. I get compliments on this everywhere I go, and Designs by Sabreena has so many other beautiful things too! I wear this one the most, I think, I just love it!

I was searching Ebay for supplies and saw this beauty - I of course love Moonstones best of all gems, but I needed this! Its not a very formal Pentacle but thats alrighty by me! I like to wear this one and the Unicorn, this one is very short barely goes around my neck but I love it there! Its so shiney - and they have other beautiful Pagan things at Their Ebay Store

Thats all I got the week before last - and some older than that! Im going to make TWO Monday Looky looky posts so the second is coming right up!

The Moooonday Report!

I had a great weekend!

Full of Etsy Sales, <3 for my Art, Magic and wonder, and the best D&D game EVER! ^_^

Im really getting excited about my chances of making all my dreams work and so heres this weeks todo list!

1) Etsy: Finish Uploading Cameos, Magnets, Stickers, Stationary, or as much of that as I Can. Slow and Steady wins the race here! I plan on spending 2 or 3 spans of 20 mins listing each day. =3

2) Daily Sketches: Hooray! <3 I have so many ideas and I want to just go for it. No more no drawing! ^_^

3) Webcomic Setup: Yup, Im going forward with it. <3

4) New Products Print Files: I have some products in the work and I need to get the files ready.

5) House Cleaning: Each Day I need to declutter/clean one area. Ive let a lot of mess stack up because "I dont have time to deal with that" and its gotta stop! Kill that clutter! Attack!

6) Keep up with my readings. I have a lot of books starting to stack up (not novels!) that need to be gone through. I love to read, so this one should be easy and fun! <3

Lets go, Monday! We can get stuff done! =D
