Here's a peek at just a few of the specials you'll find:
~Buckeye Nation Jasper Necklace.............~Ruby Wore Red Earrings...... ~Black Is Back Necklace
Autumn has arrived in full beauty and was worth the wait, I think - despite some rainy days, the cool sunny color-filled fall is wonderful to enjoy. My newest earrings are inspired by our tree (you might recall my earlier post about this) holding tight to its leaves as autumn moves in...
And finally.....really now, "Happy Valley???" I think not.......Woo-Hoo.....GO BUCKS!!!

from the ~BUY HANDMADE site:
Why buy handmade?
Buying handmade is better for people, better for the environment, and better for giving truly special and well-crafted gifts. The ascendancy of chain store culture and global manufacturing has left us all dressing, furnishing, and decorating alike. The connection between producer and consumer has been lost. Buying handmade helps them reconnect.
We encourage all consumers to be aware of the social and environmental implications of their purchases.
I am sure the "etsy dude" would wish you all - Peace....

It was definitely another "kick-off" Saturday yesterday as we were glued to the television for football -- GO BUCKS!!! Whew! That was a bit scary, but, hey, a little pressure is good for the character, right guys - and I'm sure Coach Jim will be having a few "words" to get them prepped for Penn State this Saturday....wonder if he'll borrow any from Woody's speech in the video above?
Another beautiful fall day - and we made a quick trip to a local orchard yesterday before the game - so I think perhaps an apple pie may be in order this afternoon! Yum!

~OK....isn't that awesome? Now for the "small world" part! There is a wonderful Etsy shop called Eden Village Soap -- you need to visit soon (I'll come back to that...) -- whose owner is Teresa. Teresa and I were "convo-ing" (emailing) last week about some items and our common love for the Buckeyes. She sent me the link to this video and told me that her friend, Duane, had painted this room for a local doctor -- wow!!! I had seen the video before on the site, but now, having the more "behind the scenes" info., I told Teresa I was definitely posting the video this week. The detail work is incredible! Duane....I'm embarrassed to go in my basement now! :-(
~But back to Eden Village Soap ...handmade herbal soaps, lotions & lip balms! Things seem to go quickly so check her shop often - listings right now are soaps like moonlit lavender, citrus almond, and oatmeal milk and honey. Be sure to tell her, GO BUCKS! :-)
Wrapped up our regular soccer season and heading into tournament play this week....here are some favorite pics from yesterday's games! Great season, ladies ~ good luck, this week!

That's why two of my Etsy street teams are "jump-starting" the holiday shopping season with very special sales this year and I really encourage you to check them both out. The first one begins October 21st and runs for just ONE week (ending Oct. 27th) and is for participating shops of etsyBEAD. I am a participating shop and am gearing up for this big sale. For a complete list of all the shops, go to etsybeadstreet.blogspot.com. There is a wide variety of very talented jewelry and bead artists - great for Christmas gifts! And, of course, I hope you'll check out my shop as well as you're looking for gifts during the sale! :-) The October sale is the first of 3 holiday sale events planned by etsyBEAD.
The JET Holiday Sale (you probably noticed the countdown box in the upper right hand corner) begins November 1st and runs through December 1st. While details of that sale won't be announced until the actual sale date, you can begin to see particular sale items in my shop and other participating JET shops, by searching ETSY with the tag "JHS". New items are being tagged and added as the sale approaches. JET is one of the largest jewelry street teams on Etsy so this will be a big sale event!
~And yes, it IS Wednesday....so that means.....favorite soccer pics, of course!
