~♥~ Mr. Owl and his good friend Pussycat were feeling rather bored. When Pussycat suggested an evening boat ride they both thought it was an outstanding idea and hopped in their little wooden boat looking forward to a nights worth of adventure. ~♥~ This is a mixed media collage on a 9X7 inch light wooden board. A hanger is attached to the back so it is ready to be displayed in a room of your choice--the artwork continues on to the sides of the board so there is no need for framing. It has been lightly varnished for protection and shine.

These are the cutest yet!! Made from bright and thirsty cotton terry, they feature a patchwork applique from a Winnie the Pooh fabric that I fancy cut to get the perfect poses of your favorite characters. Baby will love seeing these and it will make feeding time so much fun!!
These ones measure approx.10"X10" and are perfect for droolers and teething infants to protect and absorb.They are bound with the matching fabric that is doubled for added strength and wear. They have generous adjustable ties (so you can forget about those velcro snarls in the dryer)and can be machine washed and dryed and are built to last. Please specify in your message to buyer your color choice: orange, aqua, pink, or baby blue.
One dollar from each bib sold will go to help the dogs at S*N*O : http://www.siberiansneedingowners.org my favorite Northern Breed dog rescue helping save lives, they care for and rehome loveable Huskies and other snow dogs who have been taken from shelters or busted puppy mills or owner surrendered. Thank you!!

I like any kind of nature. I again was asked to paint a humming bird. I love happy colors and again this was fun for me. I hope you like it. This original oil is in various sizes and prices. It is also in greeting cards and jewelry. I also do commissioned oil paintings reasonably.

Who says packing a lunch can't be fun? Express your personality with a set of reusable sandwich bags! This set features a fun starburst pattern in light blues, pinks, and greens set on a chocolate brown background. The inside of the bags features a nylon lining that is easily cleaned with a damp cloth - so convenient! While we're at it, why limit these versatile bags to lunchtime? The small size is great for tossing makeup in to keep your purse clean or for filling with snacks to carry around for your toddler!

This is sweet, yet sort of Steam Punk all at the same time. It's great for the office, or a sexy night out! I used sterling silver wire to make a comfortable shank, adding a teal Swarovski crystal to the center. I then coiled more sterling silver wire around the base wire and added 2 clear Swarovski crystals to the outside of the teal bead, coiling the remainder of the wire on the sides. The result is a coiled ring that is pretty, yet different. You could keep it shiny, or allow it to patina and darken naturally, giving it a worn look for a more "Steam Punk" style.This is about a size 6-1/2, but I can make it in another size if you need it. I can even make it with different beads, or in copper or 14karat gold-filled wire, convo me before purchasing for details.10% of the total sales before tax and shipping goes towards my Charity of the Month

"Look to the Skies" the hints of gold are like a majestic eagle and the blue and white are like a beautiful, wide expanse of sky with little puffy clouds in it. The criss-cross design also makes me think of a bird's wings, emanating out from its body, so powerful and graceful, as it flies through the sky.
I am actually a full-time middle school teacher, so I mostly work with 11- and 12-year old human animals! I do have 2 rescue kitties, one of which was featured by Michele last month or so (Noah). I also would LOVE to be able to donate all proceeds from any items sold on Etsy to the team charity of the month to be able to help more animals and organizations in need.

This is one of my faves!! It's made with a beautiful champagne colored satin ribbon that attaches to the side with a cute bow and metal clasp. A single silver large looped strand is adorned with an owl pendant. It's so chic and feminine, can be worn during the day with a casual outfit, or in the evening with a flowy dress!
A portion of the profits from this sale benefit the World Wildlife Fund. The company I work for is currently assisting with rescueing birds/turtles from the gulf oil crisis (being a zookeeper - we all asist with this effort). And in my spare time, aside from runnig my etsy pages for various charitys, I volunteer with a local pet organization Tampapets.org.
