Available here.  They are fabulous additions to your favorite handbag or Winter coat.  Also, if you would prefer any of these pieces as a necklace instead of a brooch please send me an Etsy convo and I can add a chain and adjust pricing for you!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year's Everybody (that's my friend Angie and I up there circa 2005 NYE. Good times...).  Hope y'all have fun tonight!  Trying to decide which nail polish to go with for the evening... #340 Black Platinum on the left or #450 Fairy Teal on the right? Whatcha think?  I'm also secretly wishing to hear this while I'm out on the town dancin' around but don't tell anybody...  I know, I know, totally cheesy, but sometimes that's fun, right?

See you in 2010!

Christmas 2009

Wow.  What a wonderful week...  Had some great R&R with family and friends, made cookies, made Christmas card with the Hubs, got a new 'do (bangs!), got a new "day job" (4 days a week instead of 5 = 1 extra full day for my art!  Woot woot!), and ate waaaaaaaay too much food.  Now it's time for me to really focus on some projects I want to put into motion for 2010...  I have a feeling it's going to be a great year ahead...

Cheers!

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays 2009

Hope everyone has a great couple of weeks coming up!  Here's a little card I drew the other night inspired by these, so just wanted to wish all of you guys out there Happy Happy Holidays!  I'm going on a little blog hiatus to get some stuff done and really focus on some design projects I've been needing to work on.  Not to mention relax a little and enjoy the upcoming festivities!

For all of you needing last minute Christmas gifts please check out my Etsy shop and have your orders placed by this Thursday, Dec. 17th to ensure delivery by Christmas (U.S. residents only).  I have also just finished up and listed a new batch of my #1 selling Treasure Bird items if you've been waiting for a set.

Peace, Love, and Happiness!  See you after Christmas...  Genevieve :)

Christmas 2009

Just finished up some Holiday decorating so here are some scenes from around the house (and in case you are a new reader there is a tutorial for the Fabric Wall Art here).  Wish I had some pictures to share from this past weekend's Athens Indie Craftstravaganzaa too, but honestly I hardly ever left my booth!  Traffic was really good so there was a constant stream of Holiday shoppers, not to mention I was bundled up in a blanket most of the time because it was so cold outside!  Thanks to all that came out and to those who stopped by to say hello!

Last but not least I wanted to let you guys know there is a giveaway going on along with an interview I did on The Sunshine Studio's blog.  Thanks Lory!

Hope y'all have a great week ahead...

Happy Friday everybody!  I'm plugging away at some last minute items (like these yarn ball button ornaments) to sell at the Athens Indie Craftstravaganzaa...  Hope y'all have a great weekend, and if you are out for the show please stop by and say hi!

XO,

Closing Up Shop

Mary Beth Eastman of True Up and Supafine fame put together a great article "Even Crafters Need a Vacation: How to Close up Shop."  Check it out to see what a few of us shop owners had to say about how we handle closing up for the Holidays.

Speaking of closing up shop, just a reminder my Etsy shop will be closed this weekend for the Athens Indie Craftstravaganzaa.  Hope to see you there, Athens peeps!

...and in totally unrelated random news, have you guys heard that new Timbaland song?  I can't lie, I love the way he puts beats together and his songs always end up on my "Runnin'" (workout) playlists.  I'm sure this new one will be played out soon, but for now I like it...

This weekend I will be participating in the Athens Indie Craftstravaganzaa!  Over 50 local artists will be downtown showcasing their work.  For all you Athens peeps, you can find more info here.

P.S. - My Etsy shop will be "on vacation" this weekend while I'm at the Craftstravaganzaa.  Since a lot of my pieces are one-of-a-kind, if they sell at the show they will not be available when the shop reopens (in other words, if you have had your eye on something in my shop I would purchase it by Friday night).  Thx!
