My Etsy Store is Open, plus a New Contest & Open Contests!
Wednesday, January 6th, 2021

UPDATE: The winner is…Eileen McCall!
*~*~*

If you’ve been following me for very long, you know I have an obsession. Not my writing. That’s not obsessive at all. Nope. That’s just part of my DNA. I’m a crafter, and I know there are a lot of us out there. I love sitting down at my table and playing with beads and wire and pulling out my paints, crayons, pastels, and pens to create art.

2020 kept me at home, and I dabbled like mad in my craft room to keep away the dark shadows and boredom. Now, I have so many completed projects that I thought now was the time to reopen my Etsy store, The Emerald Casket. So, here it is. I don’t have a lot on the “shelf” right now, but I’m posting new items every day. If you’re interested, go take a look, but here are a few things I am or will be offering soon….

These are handpainted earrings. My dd loves them. They’re light and fun. I used copper wire and ear wires, plus pretty Czech glass seed beads.

Here, I have handpainted postcards, sold in bundles. Don’t you want something special to send to family and friends?

And of course, bracelets, since I love making and wearing them. This one’s made with a silver bead, hematite, and matte onyx beads.

I’m excited and working on posting new items every day. I opened yesterday and am stoked because I had my first sale! Woot. I hope you’ll visit the store often, and if there’s something you see that’s not quite what you want, send me a note. I have custom-made items in the past, and my prices are very reasonable.

So, that’s the sales pitch. What I don’t sell there, I’ll pack up and take to local craft shows—once it’s safe. In the meantime, I’ll be puttering, experimenting, and obsessing over my beads and paint…

    I’m a quilter. I rarely use a pattern. I make colorful quilts that I love. I e made tons of baby quilts – never using pastels, but rather bright colors that catch the eye! I’ve also been making bigger quilts. For the first time I’ve made quilts for my beds (3), my sons’ bed, and my grandson’s bed. I’ve got pictures!

    I love crafting and cooking. Mostly I just research whatever interests me but once in a while I’ll try something new. Last year was flower arranging. Who knows what this year will bring!

    I’m a little boring–I think the main obsession is books, LOL! Love seeing what you create with your talents, Delilah–the postcards are gorgeous!

    Eileen! Are you a member of Delilah’s Corner? I’d love for you to share pics of your quilts there!

    bn100—I’m guessing you spend a lot of time reading. 🙂

    Colleen! We writers have no complaints there!

    Debra Guyette! I have a little collection of dragons! Love them!

    Jennifer! I do the same thing, although lately it all has something to do with art. Gouache? What’s that? Have to try it!

    Fedora! Thanks, I’ve been having fun with the little pieces of art! And I’m very appreciative that you read, too!
