Can you believe October is already here?
I really can't, but it's one of my favorite months.
I'm so happy to be back in Idaho
where the seasons truly do change right before your eyes
I thought it would be nice to end (or in this case, rather start)
each month by showcasing my favorite etsy treasuries
that i've made throughout the last month
I've become quite addicted to making these
sometimes even making two a day.
I know that might sound pathetic but I justify it
by saying it helps generate traffic for both my blog and shop
hopefully that to is not completely a pathetic notion.
This month I landed once on the front page
it was called "breath" and it came about right after hearing
that my grandmother had cancer.
She had major surgery a few weeks ago ...
she is perhaps to come home in the next few days
and I plan to go visit and help her for as long as she needs
We still don't know a lot about what the future holds for her
but she is the toughest gal I've ever known.
was only about 5 years ago she burned a good majority of her body
in an accident involving a blow torch.
If anyone can survive this I know she can
but it has been difficult news to swallow.
Life in general has been dosing out its fair share of bitter medicine
I don't know if it's a case of bad luck comes in threes
but we have sure have had our fair share it seems
I loved the treasury up top. I actually made it twice
I accidently clicked out of the browser the first time
sadly many of the items I had chosen I didn't have saved
but in a few days I collected a new batch of items that made me smile
and while this one didn't make it to the top it has generated over 2,000 views
Treasuries are a funny thing
you never know what will catch peoples attention and what will not
I think it's more a game of luck and timing...
I've always been a sucker for gold.
I really wanted a gold wedding ring
I ended up with platinum
I love and adore my ring
but there is a little part of me that thinks
I would love it even more in gold.
Of coarse pink is my favorite color
so it's no surprise that I picked this treasury
as one of my favorites.
Most of you know I suffer from a bad case of sweet tooth
from the moment I wake I start craving the sweet stuff,
my just before bed snack is no exception.
Halloween treasuries have been mad popular
I thought it would be fun to explore a single costume theme
-makes me want to read Wicked all over again.
Of coarse fall and autumn is a popular theme as well
I think today I might go dig out the fall and halloween decorations.
This last treasury was inspired by the movie Ondine
I love tales about mermaids...
but I wouldn't exactly put this movie on any must see lists
but I did watch Charms for the Easy Life twice in a row this last weekend
I could really use my own lucky charm right about now ^^
