Spring Is Here!

When I started making this treasury it was 60 degrees out. Today, it's 30. Sigh. Well, regardless of the temperature outside it is in fact spring. The birds are returning, the flowers are coming up, and there are new buds on all the trees. :) It's pretty to look at, even if you still have to wear a winter jacket when you go outside. Are there signs of spring where you live? If not then check out this mini treasury to get your daily dose of a newly blossoming spring. :)

* Edit *
I had to change this around a bit because some of the pieces I picked expired by the time I went to post the big treasury. When I went to add some new items I accidentally deleted my mini treasury and had to start from scratch. If I said your piece was featured and you don't see it here, that is why. Sorry for the confusion.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! :D I'm an enjoying today by wearing green and eating some yummy treats my husband made, namely Irish soda bread cookies and Irish potato candy! :D Are you doing anything special today? Tell me in the comments! And enjoy this clover themed St. Patty's day mini treasury! :)

May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of his hand. ~ Irish Blessing

The Month of the Aquamarine

March is an awesome month. It contains both St. Patrick's Day, Pi Day, and the First Day of Spring! :) It also has a very beautiful and unique birthstone: aquamarine! This stone in ancient times was thought to bring happiness and everlasting youth. It was also thought that water the stone had been submerged in contained healing powers and because of it's color it was also worn by sailors to keep them safe at sea and prevent seasickness. The most valuable color this stone comes in is still the deep-blue green color the gem is named for. So, Happy Birthday to all my friends and followers born in March! Enjoy! :)

Epic Fantasy

Also epicly hard treasury to make! I don't know if I was just really distracted this week or if I'm too picky or what, but it took me FIVE days to make this treasury! That's a new record! :)

I thought it would be fun to make a treasury based on fantasy stories since I'd been reading a lot of them lately. But it turned out to be a lot harder then I thought it would be. I think my mistake was not having a clear idea of what I wanted to include. There are SO many cool fantasy items on Etsy, I was just overwhelmed! But it's finally done! And I hope you enjoy it! :)

Book Worm Day

I've been reading a lot lately. I blame my new friends at a fantasy book website that does reviews and has an awesome forum where we talk about fantasy and sci-fi geeky stuff both book and non-book related. Now don't get me wrong I love fantasy books, I'm even writing one! But listening to everyone talk about all these cool books they've read all day had gotten me back into reading in a big way. I finished 3 new books in less then a week! XD

Why do I bring this up you ask? Well I noticed when I started reading again, that since I moved I no longer own any bookmarks. I find myself using receipts, scraps of paper, and even cards from my kids boardgames I find lying around. I decided something, I need to buy a bookmark. And since I know a bunch of awesome artists on Etsy that have pieces I've been lusting after for years now, I figured I'd buy one from them! :)

That's where I ran into the problem. I found too many I like! So, then I decided to pick the pieces I liked the best and make a treasury to help me decide. But it didn't help. I still can't decide! :) Maybe you guys can help me. Which bookmark do you like best? (Make sure to check out the big treasury too!)

Have a great day! :)
