So Busy!

Could it get any busier or more fun around here? Today we have the Mini Monday Celebration of Spotted Cow Soaps written by Tulips Treasure Box. We have the blog carnival hosted by A Keeper's Jackpot hosted here.
we have two birthdays to let you know about today!
Send your birthday greetings to Dizzy Dragonflies and Chicy Creations!

etsyBloggers Mini Monday Features - Spotted Cow Soaps

Oh, how did I get to be so fortunate?

Dear Ms. Moo,

Guess who is the editor of _our Mini Monda_?...

Shop: Spotted Cow Soaps

Blog: Spotted Cow Soaps

Handcrafted in a favored area of the world, New England. Specifically, Vermont.

Ms. Moo is an affectionate title given to Mrs. Linda Wheelock soon after a new member was miraculously accepted into the ROCKIN etsyBloggers Team!!! Since then, she has deviously played the SNS (Saturday Night Special) Friday's starting at 5 p.m., is a junkie ("I am a fragrance junkie and I peddle my soaps and skin loving goodies to support that habit"), tried out for the WWF and fell off of a ladder injuring her noggin, was the recipient of a ghostly haunting in her work office, where she has been the Grand Poo Bah and Director of School Food Service for many years! This is probably where she conceived of the idea to put lettuce into one and tomato into another of her beautifilled soap creations!

When she is not falling off ladders, or ducking for cover when the heavy shelving in her office collapsed on her, she is an exceptional wife, mother, homemaker, friend, gardener, and chief soap, lotions, massage oil, hand crochet bath accessories, and gifty items creator.

It is so hard for me to say this next quote from Ms. Moo herself, "Nestled deep in the heart of Vermont amongst the mountain views and dairy farms you will find Spotted Cow Soaps. I have been formulating and selling homemade natural soaps for over 8 years."

Her Etsy shop was born of necessity. “What started out as a necessity to cure skin issues of my own has grown into an obsession and love for handcrafting great smelling soaps that leave your skin saying..."THANK YOU!"

That leaves your skin saying MOOlicious is what would say!

Listen, how can you possibly resist this?

Or this?

We all love and adore you Ms. Wheelock. You are an intergal and ROTFL jokester of our beloved etsyBloggers ROCKIN team!

Wishing you all of the best with your etsyButt problems, and continued successes with your beautifilled Spotted Cow Soaps Boutique.

a Hug from all of us....

Mini Monday for Mandy Magoo

In the profile of her Etsy shop you find the reason her shop exists.
I'm a SAHM of 2 daughters. I love all things vintage, feminine and adorable. I try to use the best quality supplies for everything I make. I started my Etsy shop for several reasons but the most important to me is making something that will make someone smile. :D

Keeping up with 2 daughters can keep a mom busy from morning til night and you can find out about that and more of her crafting life on her blog.

Mini Monday - Shell Mitchell

Dear Ms. Mitchell, please excuse the fact that this is YOUR MINI-MONDAY and today just happens to be says with a red face and sheepish grin and asks, "please forgive my brain emission".

Shell Mitchell is the Queen of Handmade Fingerless Gloves and One-of-a-Kind Accessories! Her obvious passion for detail, style, and color have provided a special accessory to many a hand! Inevitably, Shell has recently announced her excitement, as she will soon add a line of Men's Fingerless Gloves! You have got to LOVE it!!! My dear hubby works in the winter elements and super enjoys his pair every year. Not only are they stylish, they are practical too. By golly, I think he will be needed a new pair this year Shell!

Ms. Mitchell is also an active member of two Etsy Street Teams, the etsyBloggers Team and the CCCOE Team.

Hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area, where my BIL happens to reside and work, we know that this "girly, girl" lives in one of the most artistic and trend setting areas of the country. Shell Mitchell Accessories and Design Blog offers much more insight to this dynamic artisan.

By the way, shipping world wide except where prohibited by customs regulations

Mini Monday - Rainy Day Art

Today we are sharing with you the work in the shop Rainy Day Art. This Saint Louis, Missouri based artist joined Etsy in January of 2007. She joined the EtsyBloggers Street Team a year ago in September 2007 and we are glad she did!

From her profile we find some hints about the person behind the work.
I enjoy a lot of art and making lots of different things. I've been focusing on fiber arts lately. I have a spinning wheel and spin yarn myself, which I often knit with. I also use wool to make felt.
I really like ceramics too.

Of course there is a blog to read as well as taking a look at the shop. In the blog you will find information on spinning, past blog carnival links and more. Be sure to stop by and leave a comment telling her the EtsyBloggers sent you!

Today's mini Monday feature is by Cozy.

Happy Birthday!

One of our earliest members is having a birthday today and we all hope Alicia Mae has a great day!

Etsy For Animals 1st Birthday Bash - 20% off participating shops!

In addition to being a member of the wonderful EtsyBloggers team, I am also a member of Etsy for Animals and we have an exciting event coming up soon!

From September 15-30, Etsy For Animals (EFA) will be celebrating their 1st birthday and over 150 fantastic Etsy shops will be offering 20% off (excluding shipping)! Click here for a list of the participants from the EFA website. Our shop, BeadedTail, will be among those participating! To get 20% off, just enter our coupon code, BEADS, and shop, shop, shop! You can use the code in ALL participating shops, however, the code is good just once per shop so be sure to get everything you want at that time.

All you have to do to use the coupon is put "EFA birthday bash coupon code BEADS" in the notes to seller for ANY participating shop and then either wait for a revised invoice or pay and get a refund. There are different codes for every shop in order to keep track of who brings the most people to the sale, so if I'm the first person you've heard about this sale from, then please use my code in any participating shop but if you got someone else's code first, then use theirs. Be sure to pass my code on to anyone else you know who might enjoy this sale. If you have questions, feel free to send me an Etsy convo at any time!

Mark your calendars and be sure to check out the great shops of the EFA members and find wonderful things for you, your family, your pets and don't forget holiday gifts!
