An ad I did for work today

Nothing special about the design of it, I just thought I'd post to remind my friends to take a moment for themselves. Seems like we are always running around being busy, taking care of others before ourselves, etc. Here is a little inspiration to treat yourself and create a spa day! I haven't done this in quite a while, but it sounds wonderful. I also bought myself a bath bomb from this great little store I found called Lush. Can't wait to use it!

IF: Instinct

Harry the spider could not believe his eight eyes! He knew humans hated spiders and that they by instinct, would smash him with a big shoe upon sight. But today was his lucky day as this human whisked him by his string and put him outside where he belongs. So long Harry!

Photo Friday: Morning Routine

This morning I was sitting at my dining room table, checking out Friday's blog prompts on my iPhone. Upon discovering Photo Friday's prompt "Morning Routine", I decided to snap a pic of my current morning routine with my phone. This is consistently my routine, sitting here drinking my big cup of coffee and checking messages. Sorry I already chugged a good deal of it!

Inspire me Thursday: Silver

This soldered decorative piece is adorned with silver beads, silver hammered wire, silver tag that says "create" and a square mirror. Silver on silver on silver on iridescent glass. I would like to sell this in my Etsy shop, if I could just get a good picture of it shimmering and sparkling in the light as it looks in real life.

Photo Friday: Pet

This is Boris the cat, my spoiled rotten Russian Blue. I am his pet.

Daily Art Stop: Sweet

This is a plush cupcake I made for my younger cousin who absolutely loves cupcakes, especially with sprinkles and a cherry on top. And how fitting for Diana Evans' daily art stop! Sweet!

Daily Art Stop: Cupid

I purposely drew cupid for Lite FM so I can use him in Diana Evan's Daily Art stop as well!

101.9 Lite fm web header

I love it when I get the opportunity to do a re-design on one of the radio station sites, with a fun holiday theme. My task was to make 101.9 Lite fm ready for Valentine's Day. So here is my website header!

Hubby's wishful thinking while loading the dishwasher.

I found this cute little thing he did while making my coffee this morning. We have this magnet on the fridge to keep track of clean/dirty dishes in the dishwasher, and he decided to embellish. How cute!

Notice that pink candy heart that says "Mike" (the hubby) on the top? I was going to make polymer clay candy heart magnets to sell on Etsy this year but I only got to the pink batch. I'm so busy!!! Valentines day is fast approaching, and it looks like I'm running out of time. That's ok though, I think I've changed my plans to not do seasonal stuff yet, until I find a way to increase my sales.

Any of you successful Etsy sellers out there have any good tips?
