Oh, Wow!

I am thrilled to be the featured shop today on the Boomers and Beyond blogspot. It is such an honor to be a member of the BBest team (for people over 40, by the way), and to get to share about my Bags and More by Pam shop, along with other interesting tidbits. If you get a chance, stop by and leave a comment. Thanks to Janine, who has two shops....AltheaP and OneDogTalking, for the terrific blog post. A story about this particular sweater is part of the feature!

St. Patrick's Day Isn't Just for People!

Handsome Eddie is ready to celebrate the wearin' of the green along with Gorgeous Daisy! They are both wearing new hand-crocheted St. Patrick's Day collars, and don't they look fabulous! Was quite fun to finish these after a bout with bronchitis that resulted in not even picking up a crochet hook for five days! That has to be some kind of non-crocheting record for me! Better now, and off to finish two custom orders....a Cleveland Browns baby blanket, hat, and booties, and a cable design sweater in a woman's medium. And to connect with more friends on Facebook. What fun that is chatting with lots of former students, or as I prefer to call them, some of my "kids"!

Another Special Surprise!

It was a pleasure to find two of my items featured in two different treasuries today (when my computer was usable again! --and that is another story!) Sixsisters, one of my friends from the Boomers and Beyond (Bbest) team selected my teal and lime Splashy Scarf Series IIIfor her treasury entitled Waiting. It can be viewed until 8:22 a.m., Monday, February 9.

KBShimmer from the Indiana Etsy Street Team (INCrowdteam) selected my double thick blue poncho for her treasury entitled Through Blue Tinted Glasses. Her treasury can be viewed through Tuesday, February 10 at 4:40 a.m.

SixSisters is a very talented painter. I especially love her bird collection, such as those shown here. You will want to visit her shop to see her other wonderful paintings.

KBShimmer makes gorgeous soaps, shampoos, bath bombs, and lip balms. Here are some of my favorites. I'm sure you will want to visit her shop to see all of her selections!

What a Nice Surprise!

Multiple treasuries in two days! What a thrill! DaisyDesigns Floral was kind enough to include my tiny puppy heart sweater in a traditional BNR treasury., entitled XXXX AND OOOOS BNR. That means if you are an Etsy seller, and you buy something from that particular treasury, (available through Wed., February 4 at 12:08 a.m.) you can choose an item from your shop to replace the item you purchased! Her treasury features Hoosier artists from the INCrowdteam. She mades silk floral arrangements in her shop. Click on her link or the floral photo above to visit her shop for more silk flowers!

Inalather, who makes the most luscious bath soaps and shampoos, has also created an INCrowdteam treasury, entitled Perfection IN Pistachio. What beautiful selections. She chose to include my White and Lime bath set in her treasury, which is viewable through Thursday, February 5 at 4:24 a.m.You will definitely want to view Inalather's soaps and shampoos, too!

I love this particular soap by inalather. The colors are fantastic, and I know the aroma is fabulous as well!

Created for a Purpose has curated a lovely Cream of the Crop treasury. It includes many of our friends from the Etsyhookers Team, and she was kind enough to include my white men's cable design sweater in it. Check this treasury out through Wednesday, February 4 at 2:22 a.m.

One of my favorite items from her shop is the pattern to make these doll clothes for vintage dolls. Just click on the photo below to view CreatedforaPurpose's Etsy shop. The treasury will be available through Wednesday, February 4, at 2:22 a.m.
