My Etsy Favorites for the Week

I love sharing my Favorite Etsy items, so I figured it would be great to simply post them here. It's so hard to narrow it down, but I plan to only list 3-4 each week.

Mark my blog as a follower, so you can come back each week.

I found this some time ago and still like it. You can find it at Amberae's shop.

Lovely buttons and well made. These can be found at butteredparsnips' shop.

Last but not least for this week:

This can be found at SimplyStacyJewelry's Shop.

I enjoy shedding a little light on talents and unique abilities.

Rough Night..... Rough Day

For the most part, I had a rough night and rough day. My nerves got the best of me and my stomach was so upset. I had to cancel plans (which made me very sad) and crashed for most of the day. I hate it when things like that happen, but I've found there isn't much a person can do about it. I hope to start a fresh new day tomorrow and I will throw myself into my crafts, unpacking and family.

We will also be celebrating the Memorial of Christ Death, tomorrow night.
