Bad Blogger! Bad!

It's me, guilty and skulking around corners with my tail between my legs. I resolved to post DAILY and had a brief good run of it but then I fell off the proverbial wagon.

The upside to this is that I will renew my vow of daily (or near daily) postings in September, a month I regard more than January as the dawn of new beginnings. I've always been a sucker for the back to school season! New pencil cases and notebooks filled with hope and possibility until you actually arrive at school and realize that the reality of it is more of a war zone than an incubator of young minds. (This was my experience. Hopefully yours was better!)

I leave you with some images of my latest creations.
Enjoy the rest of your summer and

My usual morning ritual is to check email and see what's up with the traffic in my stores. This morning I noticed that the number of views for my recently added Maeve Harness Necklace were approaching the 500 mark. I Googled my necklace to see where the traffic was coming from and to my surprise, my necklace was featured on NOTCOUTURE.COM.

Wow. The views were now up to 611. Checked back in an hour, up to 750+. Came home later this evening, view count=1289.

I am working on some more harness style necklaces and hope to have them in my store late this week. Glad so many people love this style of accessory as much as I do!

Consider This-PIF

PIF, the abbreviation for a phenomenon called "Pay It Forward," basically means
asking that a good deed be repaid by having it done to others instead of being repaid to the giver.
Etsy has it's own PIF phenomenon occurring. Sellers on etsy with PIF listings usually charge a very small amount for the PIF item. Why would anyone want to do this? Well, it makes for good karma. Someone stumbles upon something listed for 20 cents and can't believe the generosity they've encountered. That experience can change the course of a person's day and create a ripple effect of good vibes that grow exponentially.
What can YOU do to pay it forward?
