I made these adorable trick-or-treat bags for my nieces and nephew. After realizing that I had purchased way too much fabric, I made 5 more bags to list on Etsy. Since they're personalized, I listed them for $15 each.

There is just something about Halloween that I love. I love it even more than my birthday! I always have, and I'm not entirely sure why, but that might explain my motivation behind these trick-or-treat bags. I just couldn't resist the print on the fabrics.

If you're the type that loves to give gifts for all occasions, including Halloween, this bag is perfect (especially if you feel guilty giving candy). My hope is that my nieces and nephew carry these bags year after year, or use them for something else. Maybe they will just be a treasured keepsake. Whatever the case, I just love giving personalized one-of-a-kind gifts.

Goodbye Lilies and Bees

That's right, I sold my very first original watercolor painting yesterday on Etsy. I know to a lot of people that seems insignificant, but I think every artist remembers the very first piece they've ever sold. I have sold other hand made goods, but this is my first actual painting. I was so excited! I thought it would be difficult to part with one of my original works, but I know it's going to a good home. To think of my painting in someones home is amazing! That someone would want to own a piece of my art is just an honor to me. Of all the incredible artist's out there! Anyway, I am thrilled by this sale, and wanted to share my excitement with all of you! Have a great weekend!

My New Cricut

I recently purchased a Cricut electric cutting machine, and I love it! It was featured as a Today's Special on HSN and I just had to have it. I'm really into card making and I thought this was a must have for me. I've just been cutting away with it. I have managed to put together 2 sets of greeting cards as well, that I've just listed on Etsy.

I'm having so much fun with this that I plan on making my own holiday cards this year and whatever else I can come up with. I have about a million ideas :). I'm even thinking about starting to do custom cards and invitations. The sky's the limit!
