Breast Cancer Awareness Etsy Listings

On Monday, September 5th, my Aunt Claudia celebrated 3 years cancer-free. As a breast cancer survivor she will walk in the Making Strides Walk in Washington Park, Albany, NY on Saturday October 16th. I will be right there with her--and in an effort to collect money for the American Cancer Society for the walk, I will be donating all of the proceeds of my breast cancer awareness themed items on Etsy. I appreciate your support, as this scary disease already has, or certainly will, touch all of our lives.

Esty Shop Listings-Halloween Pins w/ Charm Dangles

My most recent Etsy shop sale was a pair of these adorable glass bead candy corn earrings--I have two pair left up for grabs so act fast!

Here are some the listings I posted yesterday for some altered art Halloween pins with witch hat and owl charm dangles. I've made about a dozen more (not pictures) for my October swap with my stamp camp ladies in place of a card for that month. I hope they will enjoy them. Some of those will have bat charms (once they arrive from my online order). I also made a few for my mom because Halloween is her favorite holiday! I used collage sheets from Lisa's Altered Art.

Naked Boxes--Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Click on the photo to make it larger and you will see the projects pretty much actual size! I tested out my new exclusive Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge tonight on my little personal electronic cutter...and at their full sizes on that machine (5.5" setting) they come out pretty dainty and adorable if you ask me! The pillow box, heart box, and the box with the handles come out a decent size for party favors and treat holders. The other three are scarcely big enough to house a single chocolate--but for my jewelry gift giving the little chinese food box or tied up ribbon box would hold a ring or pair of earring and be a darling thing all decorated up for whatever the occasion. I can't see them working out if any of these were made any smaller...and I'm glad my friend has the Expression so we can get these beauties up to their full potential come time for our new monthly workshop club projects! I'm so excited! Right now they are plain naked white boxes...but just wait till you see the projects we turn out from this new cartridge--my mind is reeling with ideas!
