Two More Days!

I can't wait! I love Halloween! This year I made up gift bags for the trick-or-treaters. I hope I made enough, this will be our first Halloween in this neighborhood, and there seem to be a lot of kids in the area. I picked up a couple extra bags of candy in case I run out. My kids are all excited too! Their cousin is going to go trick-or-treating with them and then we are all going to come back to the house and have a party! I hope you have something fun planned for Halloween too! :)

Today is a pretty epic day treasury wise. I have finally come to the end of my Across Etsy treasury series with the last category Accessories! :) I hope you enjoyed this series as much as I enjoyed making it! If you'd like to see all the other treasuries in this series, check out my Etsy Treasuries section for a complete list with links. And now without further ado, Accessories Across Etsy! Enjoy! :)

One down, Two to go!

I'm finally getting to the end of my Across Etsy treasury series! Only two more left after today. It's been a lot of fun to do! And in case you have no idea what I'm talking about, I'll explain exactly how this series works. My Across Etsy series is based off of Etsy's categories. I pick a category and use it as my keyword in a search. Then go through all the other categories and try to find pieces based on that keyword. It's amazing to see how the different categories on Etsy cross and re-cross each other. I started with Woodworking and have been making my way up the list. So far I've done one for each category except Plants & Edibles and Dolls & Miniatures, where I split the two halves into separate treasuries. After today, the only two I have left to do are Art and Accessories. I'm guessing Art is going to be a hard one, but we'll see. :) Today's mini treasury is based on the Bags and Purses category. Enjoy! :)

Getting Closer!

I bought our Halloween candy yesterday. Now I all I have to do is finish decorating the outside of the house and make sure no one eats the candy till Halloween, and I'll be done! :) This will be the first Halloween in our new house, so I have no idea how many kids will show up. Our last neighborhood had hardly any kids, and was out in the middle of nowhere. This year we are in a real neighborhood, so I think we'll have a LOT more kids! I hope I bought enough candy... Do you get a lot of trick-or-treaters at your house? How much candy do you buy? I guess if I run out of candy, I can always start giving out snack food from the cabinet. :)

And speaking of Halloween, today's mini treasury is Books and Zines Across Etsy, and since I'm in a Halloween mood, it ended up with a very spooky motif. Enjoy! (If you dare...) :o

What is that?

It's some sort of bright light in the sky. Could it really be the sun?? Yesterday it was 6:30am ALL DAY! It didn't get any brighter at all, just thick, low gray clouds and rain the whole time. It felt like the sun was never going to come back! But today, it's clear and sunny! Thank goodness! :) It's so much easier to get motivated to do things when it's bright and cheery outside. :)

By now you may have noticed, that I didn't get a chance to post yesterday's mini treasury, yesterday. Unfortunately the weather being gray and rainy, has the opposite affect on my children that it has on me, they get hyperactive! So, yesterday was spent chasing them around my house. Today, whether it's muddy or not, we are going outside so they can blow off some steam! But right now, I have more important things to do, like post today's (well yesterday's) mini treasury! :)

Today's theme is Candles Across Etsy! Hopefully if it's gray and rainy where you live, the warm glow of candlelight will help you get through your day a little easier. :) Enjoy! :)

And the winner of the bacon is....

...Cindy from hellcatvintage! Congrats Cindy! I'll send your information to HashDelectableEdible and let her know you'd like to try the candied bacon! Thanks to everyone who participated. And if you didn't win, you can always try entering my current giveaway here! :) What am I giving away this time?

Why a cute little kitty named Mia! :) Check out my Giveaways page for more information! :)

It's rainy here again, and my kids are starting to climb the walls. I'm not sure how mothers survived before TV and computers! But even with electric entertainment the kids aren't giving me two minutes to myself the last couple days. :P This means I haven't had time to make up today's treasury yet. But rather then delay in telling you all who won this morning, I'm going to post this now, and post the treasury after I've completed it.

Wish me luck and I'll see you soon! ;)

Monday Giveaway Day!

So it's Monday once again. And for those of us who dislike Mondays, I have some news today that will hopefully make your day a little bit brighter. Today I have TWO giveaways going, where you can win amazingly awesome stuff! :D

The first giveaway is brand new today! :D My cousin Amber who runs ThreadbareKnitter, is giving away a free orphan kitty! Her name is Mia.

Mia is made from soy-wool yarn and is knitted, then hand felted by Amber. She is a beautiful autumn cranberry color, with two white button eyes and a white heart to show she loves you. :) She will come to you, with her own personalized name tag. Amber's kittens are soft and huggable, and I'm sure Mia would love to come home with you!
