Artisans Gallery Team

I was recently asked to join the newly formed Artisans Gallery Etsy Team, and I can't tell you how honored I am to have been included with some of the most talented artisans and crafters on Etsy!  So what exactly is the Artisans Gallery Team?  Here's a little explanation: 

"We are a juried team of artisans of distinction, vetted by peers for excellence in design, skill, presentation, integrity, and customer service. Our team will offer buyers an online experience akin to shopping in a gallery by creating a marketplace of high quality, exceptionally skilled artisans. We are a network aligned to promote the goals of the Handmade Revolution, to connect and support each other across language and geographic barriers, and to recognize and encourage professional standards and unique artistic voices."

In short?  A freaking fantastic group of highly talented peeps joined together from all over the world who offer high quality, completely fabulous handmade items including accessories, art, bags, bath & beauty, clothing, dolls and fiber art, glass, jewelry, mixed media, mosaics, paper, pottery and more! 

 These were just the tip of the iceburg.  There are so many beautiful items, there's no way I could possibly begin to list them all.  For a full list of members and shops please visit the Artisans Gallery Team Blog!

Orgasm, anyone?

So, Diann from AuntieDis and I are two peas in a pod.  Or as Forest put it, we're like peas and carrots.  We like the same music, have the same warped sense of humor, and even have pet names for each other.  I won't post them here because they aren't PG-13, but that's beside the point.  The most important thing we have in common is our love for Pink Sugar aka My Precioussssssssss!  Yep.  I said My Precioussssssssss.  I even have a pet name for my favorite scent ever and I can't help it if it's creepy LOTR Gollum-like.  It's true!

Recently, during one of our daily Yahoo IM chatting sessions, the idea of an Etsy collaboration came up.  It went a little bit like this:

Diann:  "What are we doing tonight, Misty?"
Misty:  "Same thing we do every night, Diann.  Try to take over the world!"
Diann:  "With candles, soap and body goodies, oh my?"
Misty:  "And My Precioussssssssssss...."

And so, born from that conversation, our love of Pink Sugar, too much LOTR, and our need to take over the world, is our very first collaboration that is sure make your senses orgasm!

Fear not, my little ones...this won't be the last you see of us!  We have more goody baskets in the works!  Do you have a specific scent you'd like?  Let us know!

That Hooker!

Rose over at 2kutekreations is a bone fide hooker.  No, really...she is!  Her craft is crocheting and that girl hooks like nobody's business! 

From baby blankets, hats, and booties, to adorable little appliques (great for your crafting projects!), to wash clothes, reusable cotton face scrubbies and soap savers...heck, even cute hats for us grown-ups...she's got what you need in the world of crochet!  My niece sleeps with a 2kute blanky and proudly wears a 2kute hat!

As a soaper, I gotta tell you, her Soap Savers are where it's at!  Stick your whole bar or your soap slivers and scraps in that sucker and use it in place of a wash clothe or bath poof. 

Not only is she a fabulous hooker (does this make me her pimp?!) she is as sweet and sassy as can be!  The woman goes above and beyond in the name of quality and customer me, I know...I'm a loyal customer!  In fact, some of you may have received some of her cotton face scrubbies in your package if you've ordered from me...and if not, keep an eye out in the future, because they will be included in some of my baskets and sets!

Now lets end this post with a picture of yours truly and my very favorite 2kute item ever.  I wear this bad boy EVERYDAY and LOVE it.  This is a custom order she made for me.  In the same style as her Adult Pink Camo Hat, but in sleek and stylish black.

So if you're still reading, for the love of god, click on one of the links or pictures and get your booty over to her shop!
