BunnyKissd Mini Monday

I am a 30-something graphic artist, scrapper, crafter, writer, sometimes disguised as a substitute teacher, trying to figure out how to reconcile my passions with making a living. I live in the country with my partner and our four still-at-home, unschooled kids, three cats, and a Guinea pig.

Above is the profile quoted from the shop BunnyKissd on Etsy. A charming blend of beads, jewelry and paper. Look below to find the magic for yourself!

As always I encourage you to stop by the BunnyKissd blog to learn more about this artisan and her life. Leave a comment and tell her the EtsyBloggers and Cozy sent you.

Mini Monday for We are Wedges

Cheese is good and stuffed toys are good right? Let the shop owner of We are Wedges tell you more about this in her Etsy profile-

Wedges are called wedges because they are wedge shaped…like cheese.

There are person wedges and animal wedges. Some of the animal wedges are more devious than others.

Wedges like to live in silos, but more than anything, they enjoy going on adventures together.

Wedges are handmade and created with love by Benita Hsueh in her Toronto, Canada based studio.

Well…Will Baker also helps, but he is a boy.

Some of Benita’s favourite things are:
- Squares
- Circles
- Various combinations of squares and circles
- Cheese
- Plush Toys

Thus, it is only logical to combine these things, and while eating a wedge of cheese one night, the Wedges concept was born. After all, cheese is good, and cheese is wedge shaped. Plush toys are also good, so why not?*

That’s our story. THE END. OK. BYE!

* Please note that, unlike cheese, wedges should not be eaten. That would be wedgicide. Or wedgibalism?

So remember when you order yours, don't eat it!

Quirky Dolls joined the etsyBloggers Team September 2008

She can introduce herself best: "I am a Pediatric Nurse, artist, and Mom of three great kids. They are a Handful sometimes but a Heartful all the time!" Two at home, one who leaves and returns and leaves and returns. I can't blame's a tough world out there.

I Love sewing, painting, redecorating and hunting garage sales for interesting products to upcycle.

I Love to recycle fabrics, trims, beads and trinkets into my doll crafts. My glue gun and I are the best of friends, even when she burns me! Ahhhh the pain of creativity.....

All products assembled in a smoke free home. Three cats and a dog reside with me - I couldn't live without my fur babies."
