Mini Monday - Create A Thought

From the profile of her Etsy shop this Michigan based artist shares the vision behind her shop and her work-
Everyday you are creating thoughts. Thoughts that are interesting and beautiful, profound and deep, silly and funny. Whatever your thought style is, they should be recorded.

CREATEaTHOUGHT's mission is to help you do just that. I provide items that fit your personal writing and recording style. If you find that you are in need of a different style I will strive to create a personalized item just for you! Each journal is created to be unique and one of a kind.
I want to be able to provide you with something that is not mass produced. You will not have to worry about someone saying "I have that same journal!"

She continues by letting us know-
I also sell many other fun and unique items(because I like making things, and like to try making new things at least once!) such as cards, purses, magnet, frames, prints, and many more! You can request personalized items at any time!
Check the store because I am constantly adding and updating the items!

To learn more about this artist you can check out the blog or catch up with her on Flickr or take a look at her place on Myspace.
When you do tell her the EtsyBloggers sent you!

Today's feature put together by Cozy.

Mini Monday - Faerie Rebecca

Welcome to Toys From Nature~~beautifully handcrafted dolls, toys and playthings in the Waldorf tradition. Featuring the 16" Waldorf doll, as well as lovely needlefelted creations for the nature table and beyond.

This is the greeting awaiting you in the shop Toys from Nature by our team member in the spotlight today, Faerie Rebecca. The shop is filled with beautiful dolls and the artist's needle felted works.

Blessing Bowl in Ocean Blue
There are times in my meditation practice that I just need a place to *put* something, be it a special stone, a blessing, some herbs, or thoughts that just won't leave my head until I write them out. I created this blessing bowl figurine to be my keeper of those stray thoughts or wishes, holding in her lap what I need or want to get out of my head.
How many of us could not use something like the Blessing Bowl above in our daily lives? The beauty of the Etsy shopping experience is shown in this description as well. This shop is an outstanding example of how you can get to know the artist and the thoughts and motivations behind each piece of art or craft.

This California based artisan explains how she feels about the concept of buying directly from the artist or crafter in the introduction of her shop policies.
One of the best things about purchasing from an individual over a larger store is the quality of the service. Because you're buying directly from the artist, you can ask questions, get custom options, etc. I welcome your questions and requests--I want this to be a wonderful transaction for you that goes beyond just a transaction. My goal is to develop a relationship with my customers, and the first step is outstanding customer service!

As always on this team there is a blog for further reading and peeking into the life and thoughts behind this wonderful shop. When you stop by for a visit with Faerie Rebecca let her know the EtsyBloggers sent you.

This week the mini is brought to you by Cozy.

Mini Monday - Simply Sentimental

Sydnei of Simply Sentimental is our featured team member this week. She has a shop filled with papery goodness! From her Etsy Profile page she wants you to know this about her-

Hello, my name is Sydnei and I'm the creator of Simply Sentimental.....Thanks for taking the time to check out my shop.....I specialize in custom designed greeting cards and paper piecings....
I have been making cards for a little over 4 years and love every bit of it.....My passion is paper, I have thousands of pieces of paper and can't seem to buy enough of it.....(If my husband only knew how much I had tied up in my paper inventory.....)

I'm a SAHM to two beautiful but WILD little boys......I've been married to my wonderful, hard working husband for going on 11 years.......He works countless long hours so that I have the opportunity to stay at home with our boys.....

I LOVE custom orders so just convo me.....

Do you own a Boutique and think you might be interested in carry my greeting cards or paper piecings? Contact me for discount prices.....

By the way I certainly won't tell her husband about her paper stash, would you?

Her profile also states "Card Carrying Member of Etsy Bloggers Street Team......" and what I want to know is how to get one of those cards? If Simple Sentimental makes them I am sure they are a must have.
Of course as an EtsyBlogger she has a blog. It it titled Simply Sentimental. It is filled regularly with goodness from many other shops on Etsy. If you are looking for something new take a look at her blog and see what she has found.

This week your sentimental goodness is brought to you by Cozy.

It's Her Birthdayyyyyy!

Birthday wishes from everyone on the team go out to the lady behind Tulip's Treasure Box who also happens to be our featured blogger for the month of August. We all hope you have a wonderful day!
