Opened A Shop

https://www.etsy.com/shop/OurArtsyTreasureTrv

I’ve been busy. A few weeks ago I was offered a job selling historical stamp literature on ebay on commission. I’m still contemplating on doing it. I found it might be too big of a job for me but we’ll see. In the meantime since I applied for a business license I figured I’d try out some things on Etsy again to see if this is something I can actually make a go of. I love taking photos, I love mail and I’m beginning to “see” postage stamps in a different light. (Vintage stamps are pretty Artsy.) I also have an overabundance of craft supplies that I’m trying my best to use or that I need to sell.

Anyhow, my shop is small (I’ll be adding more daily) but it’s up and running. Please, if you can, take a peek and share my shop for me. For now, I’m only shipping within the U.S. but maybe it’ll change if it’s successful. If not, I’ll have lots of gifts on hand for gift-giving.

Hope you are all well and staying safe! Thank you!

Wooden Sunflower -FOTD November 8

Since I haven’t been getting out much to take new pictures, my FOTD for today is this Artsy wooden sunflower colored by our 5 year old. It’s not the usual fresh flower that we normally post but our daughter had a great time coloring it and she insists it smells sweet. The piece was a gift from our neighbor. She said it was purchased at Michaels. 😉

Meyer Lemon – FOTD November 3

We brought in our Meyer Lemon tree a few weeks ago, just before we had our first cold spell. I noticed little round balls forming on the tips of one of the branches. Here’s the first flower.

We just bought the tree in the springtime of this year. From what I read I didn’t think we were suppose to get any fruits this year. I’m really hopeful that we may. That is, if everything goes right. I’m crossing my fingers.

We placed it in one of the sunniest of windows in our house. I’m hoping it’ll receive enough sunlight for the fruits to hold up and grow. We usually have some pretty dark and rainy fall & winter months in Washington State.

Squares – “Kinda” Looks Like a Nose

This is of a tree trunk on Blackbird Island Trail in Leavenworth, WA. My son thought it looked like two toilet bowls but I think it looks like a nose.

Happy Halloween! – DIY Monster Game

I found the idea off of Pinterest but I used what craft items I had in the house plus a bunch of plastic balls from our daughter’s ball pit stash.

It took me a few days and lots of paper and glue to put it together but our daughter is happy with it. I added a return tunnel to the front for easy access to the balls and a little door just for fun.

His eyes are drawn on plastic balls with paint pens. His teeth and the leaves on the “pumpkin” and “apple” balls were cut from foam sticker sheets.

I’m quite sorry I didn’t make instructions to this. As usual, I winged it.

Our Artsy Fartsy Pumpkins

We had fun decorating our pumpkins last weekend. They are all different and quite Artsy Fartsy.

Our son was the only one who felt like carving. He said it’s of  the name of game he plays online called “Among Us”. Our daughter happily painted her pumpkin face. My husband drew his pumpkin face with a sharpie. As for myself, it gave me a reason to bring out the paints and brushes. I went all out on the ocean theme.
