Embroidered Shoe Towel From The Eclectic Diva Shop

Guest towel pink shoe embroidered on 100% cotton. 
My shoe towels make a great bridesmaids gift in a basket with some soap or scrub along with it.

Great for hanging on the towel rack for decoration and guest towel in your bathroom. 

Have a house warming party to go to this would make a great gift. 

Invited to a dinner party this makes a great hostess gift. 

Please note all computer monitors do not show colors as they are exactly in person. I use economical towels to keep costs down and cannot always get the exact shade or pattern on the towel that is shown. If you would like premium towels let me know and I will get a price for you. The kitchen bar towels will always have the same pattern. Make sure you read what type of material the towel is before ordering. I will put just about any embroidery pattern on either type of towel. I you are in need of a different color than what you see just ask and I will try to accommodate your needs

Girl's Knitted Hat From The Gold Daisy

The long tassels on this hand knitted girl's hat remind me of a girl's pigtails hence the "Pigtail Hat" was born. I handknitted this unique beanie using acrylic yarn in black and neon pink stripes in my smoke free, pet friendly home. 
This pigtail hat will fit a girl whose head circumference is 20 - 23" - age range of approx 3 years to teen. (For an accurate head measure, place a tape measure across the forehead and measure around the full circumference of the head. Keep the tape snug for accurate results.)

To keep the Pigtail Hat looking its best hand wash and lay flat to dry. 

♥♥ GIFT MESSAGE: It's free to include a message to the recipient, please include the details in the "note to seller". I will happily include a handwritten note with your personal message & ship your package to your special person's address. All handmade items are wrapped in white tissue paper and tied with a gold ribbon.

Featured Shop: Toni Tiger 415

This week we sat down with Toni from Toni Tiger415 and got to know her and her shop.

Can you tell us a little about yourself and what you create?
My name is Toni. My Etsy shop is full of original artwork as well as prints, photography, digital downloads, greeting cards and calendars
How did you come about wanting to open a shop on Etsy?
I was always creating art and a few people told me that I should try and sell it ( I had notebooks full of drawings and paintings everywhere). So I figured I would give it a shot :)

What do you like to do in your free time when you are not working on your Etsy shop? Well I do a lot of art in my spare time. So that may count as working on my shop? But I love doing it when I have the tme. I also watch a lot of movies and of course hanging out with my family, friends and Fiance.

What is your most popular product you sell? Sometimes I sell lots of prints, other times a lot of original day of the dead pieces. 

How long have you been practicing your craft or art? I have been doing art since I was a kid. I took art classes in high school and just continued it after that.

Where can we find your Merchandise online?
On my Etsy shop @ Toni Tiger 415.

Featured Shop: Whispering Metalworks

This week we sat down with Kelly from Whispering Metalworks and got to know him and His shop.

Can you tell us a little about yourself and what you create? Hello my name is Kelly... It's a pleasure to meet you! Thank you for taking a moment to read my bio and learning more about me.

I find my inspiration while browsing thrift stores, craft stores and flea markets... always on the hunt for vintage or funky items with unique shapes and colors in the hopes of creating something whimsical that 
will make people smile. I target those that wold like something unique... original...made from the heart.
A very interesting thing to note is that i am an over the road truck driver. So being male and being a driver raises an eyebrow to some. Who would think that stereotypical "dirty ole' truck driver" could creat beautiful works of jewelry and art? Well I am living proff that you can and we do! I have been a truck driver in on fashion or another all my adult life and I have seen many amazing parts of the country along the way. But it is a lonely and thankless job, and quite frankly these old bones are getting pretty worn out and tired. So I work hard every single day to promote my wares with the hopes of one day getting off the road and making crafting and creating my full time job.

What I Create:
- Wind Chimes made from re-prposed silver plated flatware and other kitchen items
- Bracelets made from vintage and antique silver spoon handles and twisted fork tines. I also offer hand
stamping on the handles of these bracelets or fork heads
- Pendant necklaces made from the handles of silver forks spoons (sometimes hand stamped with a special sentiment)
- Necklaces hand stamped and personalized with a variety of sentiments, my most popular being trucking related quotes and sayings
- Ornaments made from vintage and antique silver plated spoons that have been hand stamped and personalized
- Rings made from silver plated forks and spoons
- Bell necklaces made from hollow handles of knives with fork tine for a clapper
And so much More
How did you come about wanting to open a shop on Etsy? I realized that this was pretty fun so I started to experiment with other shapes and pieces... eventually getting brave enough to offer them as gifts to friends and family. After a great deal of support and encouragement, I took the leap and started
my own shop on Etsy selling my wares. My line up expanded beyond the wind chimes and I incorporated jewelry in all different styles, but always sticking with the theme of metalworking. As the demand increased, so did my line up of offerings. I primarily sell online, but for fun, I do try to do events and shows a few times a year. Which brings me to where I am today.

What do you like to do in your free time when your not working on 
your Etsy shop? I live in the beautiful city of Redmond, which is located right in the heart of Oregon. Here I enjoy the outdoors and all that it has to offer- with camping and fishing being my true passion. Although I am truly dedicated to  my business, sometimes the draw of the wilderness calls to me- and I just have to get out and enjoy it! That's what makes my work even more special- I am not a robot that turns out the same things over and over. I enjoy my ability to be creative, and to be flexible enough to come up with one of a kind pieces that are a delight to all!

What is your  most popular product you sell?  I certainly have a trends depending on the season, but I would say the absolute most popular item I sell is anything made with vintage skeleton keys. These are my hot ticket during the holidays, but are very popular year round. Of course some people go with the obvious and hang them on a christmas tree- but they are also used for shadow boxes, curio cabinets, wedding keepsakes and housewarming gifts from realtors.

How long have you been practicing your craft or art? I have always considered myself to be a pretty crafty person. I've dabbled with all sorts of things- woodworking, HO Scale railroad, 1/25th scale models, and auto metal fabricating. It wasn't until just a few years ago that I really started to delve into the world of artistic metal working. My very first piece was a wind chime made from old silver spoons glass beads and a tea pot.

Team Treasury Game

Every few weeks we try to have a treasury challenge for our team. What that means is that we have 17 different shops sign up to be featured in 16 treasuries and then they make a treasury featuring the members that have all signed up. For this round of the treasuries I had the last winner Dee from Dee's Jewelry Design pick her favorite treasury that was made. Dee ended up
